   operating in West Palm Beach, FL, causing harmful interference to aircraft
   communications at the Palm Beach International airport. On July 17, 2006,
   agents from this office confirmed by direction finding techniques that
   radio signals on frequency 125.210 MHz emanated from your  residence in

   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. There is no such exception for
   transmitters operating on 125.210 MHz.

   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

   relevant material information before it to determine what, if any,
   enforcement action is required to ensure your compliance with FCC Rules.
