                  MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER

Adopted:  September 7, 2004                          Released:  
September 10, 2004

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

     1.   In this Memorandum  Opinion and  Order (``Order''),  we 
grant a June 6, 2003 petition for reconsideration  (``petition'') 
filed by Scott E. Kamm, licensee of amateur radio station  N0UGN, 
Sioux City, Iowa, to the extent indicated herein.  Mr. Kamm seeks 
reconsideration of a May 7, 2003 Forfeiture Order,1 in which  the 
Enforcement Bureau imposed upon him a monetary forfeiture in  the 
amount  of  twelve  thousand  dollars  ($12,000)  for   willfully 
violating Sections 97.101(d), 97.113(a)(4)  and 97.119(a) of  the 
Commission's Rules  (``Rules'').2  The  noted violations  involve 
Mr. Kamm's intentional interference to communications on  Amateur 
Radio Service frequency 146.31 MHz, transmission of music on  his 
amateur station, and failure to  identify his amateur station  by 
call sign. 

     2.   In  support  of  his  petition,  Mr.  Kamm  offers   to 
immediately withdraw his pending  application for renewal of  his 
license for amateur  radio station  N0UGN,3 and  to refrain  from 
applying for  any other  license  for a  period of  five  years.4  
Accordingly,  we  conclude  that  cancellation  of  the   $12,000 
forfeiture  is   warranted.   Mr.   Kamm's  license   application 
withdrawal will be processed by WTB concurrently with this Order.  

     3.   Accordingly, IT IS  ORDERED that,  pursuant to  Section 
405 of  the Act5  and Section  1.106 of  the Rules,6  Mr.  Kamm's 
petition for  reconsideration of  the  June 6,  2003,  Forfeiture 
Order IS GRANTED to the extent indicated herein.

     4.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, pursuant to Sections 0.111, 
0.311 and 1.80(f)(4) of the Rules,7 the forfeiture in the  amount 
of twelve thousand dollars  ($12,000) assessed in the  Forfeiture 
Order issued to Scott E. Kamm IS CANCELLED. 

     5.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT  a copy of this Order  shall 
be sent by first  class mail and  certified mail, return  receipt 
requested, to Mr. Scott E. Kamm at his address of record.

3 On  August 20,  2002,  Mr. Kamm's  application for  renewal  of 
amateur radio  station license  N0UGN was  granted.  However,  on 
September  12,  2002,  the  Wireless  Telecommunications   Bureau 
(``WTB''), on its own motion, set aside the grant of the  renewal 
of  Mr.  Kamm's   license,  thereby   reverting  the   underlying 
application to pending status.

music on amateur radio frequencies, and transmitting unidentified 
communications was  cancelled  after licensee  relinquished  that

an established time period).
