Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does not preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the violation noted herein.

* On February 19, 2014, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's Portland Resident Agent Office investigated a co-channel interference complaint on frequency band 3650 -3700 MHz in Richland, Oregon, and noted the following violation:

  + 47 C.F.R. ยง 90.1307:  "The 3650 -3700 MHz band is licensed on the basis of non-exclusive nationwide licenses.

The response must be complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by reference to other communications or answers to other notices.  

* In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Eagle to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of Eagle with personal knowledge of the representations provided in Eagle's response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the information therein, and confirming that all of the information requested by this Notice which is in the licensee's possession, custody, control, or knowledge has been produced.  To knowingly and willfully make any false statement or conceal any material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
