                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number: EB-FIELDSCR-16-00021914
	Document Number:  W201632600016

On June 7, 2016, agents from this office confirmed by direction finding
techniques that radio signals on frequency 97.7 MHz were emanating from a
residential property on NW 12[th] Ave. in Miami, Florida.  Public records
list you as the property owner.  The Commission's records show that no
license was issued for operation of a broadcast station at this location
on 97.7 MHz in Miami, Florida.

Radio stations operating on many frequencies, including 97.7 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 June 7,
2016, the field strength of the signal on frequency 97.7 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 or providing services
and facilities incidental to the operation of an unlicensed radio
transmitter 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
