The University of the Arts       Case Number:   EB-05-PA-063 
Attn: Joseph Garbarino           Document Number: 
320 South Broad Street
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19102

The Philadelphia Office received information that an 
unlicensed station in the Private Land Mobile Radio Service 
was operating on the frequency 452.850 MHz and causing 
harmful interference to the Philadelphia Town Watchers, the 
licensee of private land mobile radio station WPQC349.  On 
May 6, 2005, agents from this office confirmed by direction 
finding techniques and a station inspection that radio 
signals on frequencies 452.850 MHz, 457.850 MHz, 452.300 
MHz, and 457.300 MHz were emanating from the University of 
the Arts, 211 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 
19102.  The FCC's records show that no current license 
exists for the operation of radio transmitting equipment on 
these four frequencies at the University of the Arts.  The 
University of the Arts was once authorized under the call 
sign WPMN262 to operate mobile relay stations on the 
frequency pairs 452.850 MHz/457.850 MHz and 452.300 
MHz/457.300 MHz at 211 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, 
Pennsylvania.  The license for those mobile relay stations 
expired on September 28, 2003.  

Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 47 
U.S.C.  301.  You are hereby warned that operation of radio 
transmitting equipment without a valid radio station 
authorization constitutes a violation of the Federal laws 
cited above and could subject the operator to severe 
penalties, including, but not limited to, substantial 
monetary forfeitures, in rem arrest action against the 
offending radio equipment, and criminal sanctions including 
imprisonment.  (See 47 U.S.C.  401, 501, 503 and 510).


You have ten (10) days from the date of this notice to 
respond with any evidence that you have authority to operate 
granted by the FCC.  Your response should be sent to the 
address in the letterhead and reference the listed case and 
document number.  Under the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C.  
552a(e)(3), we are informing you that the Commission's staff 
will use all relevant material information before it to 
determine what, if any, enforcement action is required to 
ensure your compliance with FCC Rules.  This will include 
any information that you disclose in your reply.

You may contact this office if you have any questions.
