                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number: EB-FIELDSCR-16-00021618
	Document Number:  W201632480001


On May 3, 2016, an agent from this office confirmed by direction finding
techniques that radio signals on frequency 103.9 MHz were emanating from
your residence in Guntersville, Alabama.  The Commission's records show
that no license was issued for operation of a broadcast station at this
location on 103.9 MHz in Guntersville, Alabama.

Radio stations operating on many frequencies, including 103.9 MHz, 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.  On May 3,
2016, field strength measurements of the signal on frequency 103.9 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 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. §§ 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. § 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.



Ronald Ramage
Regional Director
