                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Numbers: EB-FIELDWR-13-00010234

   Document Number: W201332980017

   The Seattle Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 87.7 MHz was allegedly operating in Lakewood, Washington. On
   July 30, 2013, FCC agents confirmed by direction finding techniques that
   radio signals on frequency 87.7 MHz were emanating from a residence in
   Lakewood, WA, 98499. The Commission's records show that no license was
   issued for operation of a broadcast station at this location on 87.7 MHz
   in Lakewood, Washington.

   Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 47 U.S.C. S 301.
   The only exception to this licensing requirement is for certain
   transmitters using or operating at a power level that complies with the
   standards established in Part 15 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. SS
   15.1 et seq. Your fundamental emissions on frequency 87.7 MHz from an
   intentional radiator were measured at 3,965,572 microvolts per meter
   (uV/m) at three meters.  This exceeds the allowable unlicensed limit of
   100 uV/m at three meters established in Part 15. In addition, fundamental
   emissions from intentional radiators operating under Part 15 shall not be
   located in the frequency band 76-88 MHz.  Thus, this station is operating
   in violation of 47 U.S.C. S 301.

   You are hereby warned that operation of radio transmitting equipment
   without a valid radio station authorization constitutes a violation of the
   Federal laws cited above and could subject the operator of this illegal
   operation to severe penalties, including, but not limited to, substantial
   monetary forfeitures, in rem arrest action against the offending radio
   equipment, and criminal sanctions including imprisonment. (See 47 U.S.C.
   SS 401, 501, 503 and 510.)

   UNLICENSED OPERATION OF THIS RADIO STATION MUST BE DISCONTINUED
   IMMEDIATELY.

   You have ten (10) days from the date of this notice to respond with any
   evidence that you have authority to operate granted by the FCC. Your
   response should be sent to the address in the letterhead and reference the
   listed case and document number. Under the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. S
   552a(e)(3), we are informing you that the Commission's staff will use all
   relevant material information before it to determine what, if any,
   enforcement action is required to ensure your compliance with FCC Rules.
   This will include any information that you disclose in your reply.

   You may contact this office if you have any questions.
