   Adopted: September 12, 2006 Released: September 14, 2006

   By the Regional Director, Western Region, Enforcement Bureau:

    1. In this Forfeiture Order ("Order"), we issue a monetary forfeiture in
       the amount of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) to Pacnet Incorporated
       ("Pacnet"), in San Diego, California (Otay Mesa area), for willful and
       repeated violation of Section 301 of the Communications Act of 1934,
       as amended, ("Act"). The noted violation involves Pacnet's operation
       of an unlicensed microwave radio station on microwave channel 22775.0

   2. On September 28, 2005, the District Director of the Enforcement
   Bureau's San Diego Office issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for
   Forfeiture ("NAL") in the amount of $10,000 to Pacnet. On October 11,
   2005, an attorney for Gary Kremen ("Kremen") notified the San Diego Office
   that the United States District Court for the Northern District of
   California ordered the assets of Pacnet be turned over to Kremen. Despite
   repeated contacts by the San Diego Office, neither Pacnet, nor Kremen, has
   filed a response to the NAL. Based on the information before us, we affirm
   the forfeiture.

   FOR A MONETARY FORFEITURE in the amount of $10,000 for willfully and
   repeatedly violating Section 301 of the Act by operating a microwave radio
   station without authorization.

   4. Payment of the forfeiture shall be made in the manner provided for in
   Section 1.80 of the Rules within 30 days of the release of this Order. If
   the forfeiture is not paid within the period specified, the case may be
   referred to the Department of Justice for collection pursuant to Section
   504(a) of the Act. Payment of the forfeiture must be made by check or
   similar instrument, payable to the order of the Federal Communications
   Commission.  The payment must include the NAL/Acct. No. and FRN No.
   referenced above.  Payment by check or money order may be mailed to

   Payment by wire transfer may be made to ABA Number 043000261, receiving
   bank Mellon Bank, and account number 911-6106. Requests for full payment
   under an installment plan should be sent to: Associate Managing Director -
