                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

                                           Case Number:
                                           EB-FIELDWR-15-00017770
                                                Document Number:
                                                W201532960001

The San Francisco Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
radio station on 87.9 MHz was allegedly operating in Gilroy, California.
On November 13, 2014, agents from this office confirmed by direction
finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 87.9 MHz were emanating
from your residence in Gilroy, California.  The Commission's records
show that no license was issued for operation of a broadcast station at
this location on 87.9 MHz in Gilroy, California.

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 87.9 MHz
exceeded the maximum permitted level of 100 microvolts per meter (uV/m)
at 3 meters for non-licensed devices.  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. § 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).

UNLICENSED OPERATION OF THIS RADIO STATION MUST BE DISCONTINUED
IMMEDIATELY.

You have ten (10) days from the date of this notice to respond with proof
of your license or 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.
