                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number:  EB-FIELDNER-16-00021992
	Document Number:  W201632380052

The New York Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
radio station on 102.1 MHz was allegedly operating in West Babylon,
New York.  On July 14, 2016, agents from this office confirmed by
direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 102.1
MHz were emanating from your business located at 85 Mahan Street, West
Babylon, New York.  The Commission's records show that no license was
issued for operation of a broadcast station on 102.1 MHz at this location
in West Babylon, New York.

Radio stations operating on many frequencies, including 102.1 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 or mode of operation 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
102.1 MHz was measured at 535,073 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 3 meters,
which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 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.
