   Mr. Thomas Fisher


   Pemiscot-Dunklin Electric Cooperative

   PO Box 509

   Re: EB-10-GB-0075

   Dear Mr. Fisher:

   On March 17, 2010, the Federal Communications Commission notified
   Pemiscot-Dunklin Electric Cooperative that had received complaints from
   Mr. (name withheld) that equipment operated by your utility might be
   causing harmful radio interference to his amateur radio equipment. The
   complainant's contact information is as follows:

   (Name withheld)

   (Address withheld)

   (Address withheld)

   Tel:  (number withheld)

   The March 17, 2010 letter advised Pemiscot-Dunklin that the interference,
   if unresolved, could be a violation of Commission rules. For this reason,
   we encouraged Pemiscot-Dunklin to voluntarily resolve the matter without
   Commission intervention. The letter specifically stated, however, that if
   it became necessary for the Commission to facilitate a resolution, the
   Commission might investigate possible rule violations and address
   appropriate remedies, including monetary forfeitures.

   On May 25, 2010, you reported to the Commission that you had conducted an
   inspection of the area and would continue to work with the licensee on
   locating and resolving the source(s) of interference. You further noted
   that you would report back to the Commission as soon as the repairs had
   been completed.

   You failed to report back to the Commission as to the status of the
   repairs. In order to avoid enforcement action on this matter, you have
   thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of this letter to respond to
   this office at the following address: 1270 Fairfield Road, Gettysburg, PA
   17325. The response must contain a statement of the specific action(s)
   taken to identify and eliminate the source(s) of Mr. (name withheld) radio
   interference. Your response must also include a carbon copy to Mr. (name
   withheld) so that he can confirm any statement that you make regarding
   resolution of the interference. If you have any questions about this
   matter, please contact me at 717-338-2577.
