Re: Warning Notice

Amateur Radio License KG4LGL


Dear Mr. Rice:

The trustee of W4KEV has requested that you refrain from use of his repeater. The

request to refrain from use of the repeater was issued as a result of your failure to follow

operational rules set forth by the licensee/control operator of the repeater system for his users.

You have failed to comply with the request.

The Commission requires that repeaters be under the supervision of a control operator

and not only expects, but requires, that such control operators be responsible for the proper

operation of the repeater system. Control operators may take whatever steps they deem

appropriate to ensure compliance with the repeater rules, including limiting the repeater use to

certain users, converting the repeater to a closed repeater or taking it off the air entirely.

Please be advised that the Commission expects you to abide by the request of the trustee

and/or control operator that you stay off of W4KEV and any other similar requests to cease

operations on any other repeaters by any other repeater licensees, control operators or trustees.

Use of this repeater again after receipt of this letter could subject you to severe penalties,

including license revocation, monetary forfeiture (fine)


or a modification proceeding to restrict

the frequencies upon which you may operate.
