San Diego, California 


                                   Case Number:           EB-04-
                                   Document Number:  W20053294003

The San Diego Office received information that an unlicensed 
broadcast radio station on 106.9 MHz was allegedly operating in 
San Diego, California.  On July 26, 2005, an agent from this 
office confirmed by direction finding techniques that a radio 
transmitter operating on the frequency 106.9 MHz was located at 
your residence in San Diego, California.  The Commission's 
records show that no license was issued for operation of a 
broadcast station at this location on 106.9 MHz in San Diego, 

Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 47 U.S.C. 
 301.  The only exception to this licensing requirement is for 
certain transmitters using or operating at a power level that 
complies with the standards established in Part 15 of the 
Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  15.1 et seq.  Your operation on 
frequency 106.9 MHz was measured at 9,987 microvolts per meter 
(V/m) at 144 meters.  This exceeds the allowable unlicensed 
limit of 250 V/m at 3 meters established in 47 C.F.R.  
15.239(b).  Thus, this station is operating in violation of 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 fines, 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.
