                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-05-DL-182

   Document Number: W20063250001

   The Dallas Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 88.9 MHz and 90.9 MHz was operating in Tulsa, Oklahoma. On
   March 16, 2006, an agent from this office inspected equipment installed at
   Mr. Browning's residence in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The equipment was a
   non-certified Broadcast Warehouse TX1 FM Transmitter with a non-certified
   Veronica twenty-five watt broadband amplifier for the frequency range of
   88 to108 MHz. Mr. Browning admitted to transmitting on both frequencies
   with the equipment. The Commission's records show that no license was
   issued authorizing operation of a broadcast station on either of the above
   frequencies at or near this location in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

   Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 47 U.S.C. S 301.
   The only exception to this licensing requirement is for certain
   transmitters using or operating at a power level or mode of operation that
   complies with the standards established in Part 15 of the Commission's
   rules, 47 C.F.R. SS  15.1 et seq. The equipment inspected was not
   certified for use under Part 15 and use of the equipment would exceed Part
   15 standards. Thus, this station was operated in violation of 47 U.S.C. S

   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. SS 401, 501, 503 and


   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 numbers. Under the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C.
   S 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.
