                                             Released:  October 20, 

By the San Juan Office, South Central Region, Enforcement Bureau:

     This is an Official Citation issued pursuant to Section 
503(b)(5) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (``Act''),1 
to Cruz Consulting Group (``Cruz'') for violation of Section 302(b) 
of the Act and Section 2.803(a) of the Commission's Rules 
(``Rules''). 2

     Investigation by the Commission's San Juan Office of the 
Enforcement Bureau (``San Juan Office'') between October 13 & 14, 
2004 revealed that Cruz sold twenty three transmitters designed to 
jam or block wireless communications (``mobile phone jammers'') to 
the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation of the Commonwealth 
of Puerto Rico.  The President of Cruz, Mr. José Luis Cruz-Cruz, 
admitted to the investigating agents that he installed the twenty 
three mobile phone jammers at the Guayama Correctional facility 
located on Road # 7707 in Guayama, PR.  The mobile phone jammers were 
purchased by Cruz from the manufacturer, Netline Communications 
Technologies, Ltd of Tel-Aviv, Israel (``Netline'').

     On October 14, 2004, agents from the San Juan Office inspected 
the mobile phone jammers, Netline C-Guard HP, high power units, 
operating at the Guayama Correctional Facility and determined that 
the units were transmitting on two mobile wireless phone bands, one 
band centered at 875 and the second centered on 1950 MHz. The 
occupied bandwidth of the signal centered at 850 MHz was 50 MHz. The 
occupied bandwidth of the signal centered at 1950 MHz was 60 MHz.  
The purpose of these signals was to block mobile phone operations at 
the correctional facility.  The output power as stated in the 
equipment specification by Netline is fifteen watts per frequency 

     Further inspection of the units on this date revealed that the 
devices bore no FCC equipment authorization or any other unique 
identification label as required by Section 2.9253 of the Rules for 
radiofrequency devices marketed in the United States.  

     Section 302(b) of the Act, provides ``[N]o person shall 
manufacture, import, sell, offer for sale, or ship devices or homes 
electronic equipment and systems, or use devices, which fail to 
comply with regulations promulgated pursuant to this section.''  
Section 2.803(a)(1) of the Rules provides that `` person shall 
sell or lease, or offer for sale or lease (including advertising for 
sale or lease), or import, ship or distribute for the purpose of 
selling or leasing or offering for sale or lease, any radio frequency 
device unless: (1) In the case of a device subject to certification, 
such device has been authorized by the Commission in accordance with 
the rules in this chapter and is properly identified and labeled as 
required by §2.925....''  Cruz's sale of these devices in the United 
States violates Section 302(b) of the Act and 2.803(a)(1) of the 

     Violations of the Act or the Rules may subject the violator to 
monetary fines not to exceed $11,000 for each violation or each day 
of a continuing violation,4 seizure of equipment through in rem 
forfeiture action and criminal sanctions including imprisonment.5

     Section 503(b)(5) of the Act provides that Cruz may request an 
interview at the closest Commission Office.  You may contact this 
office by telephone,   XXX XXX-XXXX, to schedule the interview.  The 
interview must be scheduled to take place within 14 days of the date
