                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number:  EB-FIELDWR-14-00016710
	Document Number:  W201432980004

The Seattle Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
radio station on 101.5 MHz was allegedly operating in Coeur d'Alene, ID.
On June 30, 2014, an agent from this office confirmed by direction finding
techniques that radio signals on frequency 101.5 MHz were emanating from
a residence in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  Public records list you as the
owner of the property.	The Commission's records show that no license
was issued for operation of a broadcast station at this location on
101.5 MHz in Coeur d'Alene, ID.

Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 47 U.S.C. §
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. §§
15.1 et seq.  The field strength of the signal on frequency 101.5 MHz
exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 microvolts per meter (uV/m)
at 3 meters for non-licensed devices.  Thus, this station is operating
in violation of 47 U.S.C. § 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. §§ 401, 501, 503 and 510).


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. § 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.
