   By the Chief, Spectrum Enforcement Division, Enforcement Bureau:

    1. On November 27, 2007, the Spectrum Enforcement Division (Division) of
       the Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) issued a Forfeiture Order against
       Richard Mann d/b/a The Antique Radio Collector (Mr. Mann), assessing a
       forfeiture in the amount of $7,000 for the willful and repeated
       violation of Section 302(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended (Act), and Section 2.803(a)(1) of the Commission's rules
       (Rules) in connection with the marketing in the United States of
       uncertified AM radio transmitters assembled from kits. On December 27,
       2007, Mr. Mann filed an Appeal of Forfeiture Order  in which he sought
       cancellation or reduction of the forfeiture. On April 30, 2008, the
       Bureau released the Reconsideration Order, which affirmed the
       Forfeiture Order  and denied Mr. Mann's Petition for Reconsideration.
       On June 2, 2008, Mr. Mann sought review of the Reconsideration Order.
       Mr. Mann subsequently submitted a supplement to the Bureau for the
       purpose of demonstrating his inability to pay the forfeiture.

    2. On April 13, 2012, the Division released an Order and Consent Decree
       settling this enforcement proceeding. Consistent with the terms of the
       Consent Decree, Mr. Mann has now filed a motion with the Bureau
       seeking to withdraw the pending Application for Review. We hereby
       grant Mr. Mann's request.

    3. ACCORDINGLY, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to Section 4(i) of the Act,
       and Sections 0.111 and 0.311 of the Rules, Mr. Mann's Motion to
       Withdraw IS GRANTED.

    4. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a copy of this Order shall be sent by first
       class mail and certified mail, return receipt requested, to Richard
       Mann d/b/a The Antique Radio Collector, 4231 Willys Parkway, Toledo,
       OH 43612.
