                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

                                         Case Number: EB-FIELDNER-14-00017100

   Document Number: W201432340001

   The Columbia Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
   radio station on 107.1 MHz was allegedly operating near Fredericksburg,
   Virginia. On September 8, 2014, an agent from this office confirmed by
   direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 107.1 MHz
   were emanating from your business, The Log Cabin Market, 35058 Germanna
   Heights Drive, Locust Grove, VA. The Commission's records show that no
   license was issued for operation of a broadcast station on 107.1 MHz at
   this location in Locust Grove, VA.

   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. The field strength of the signal on frequency 107.1 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. 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 to severe
   penalties, including, but not limited to, substantial monetary fines, 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.
