   Mount Vernon, NY )


   Released: January 17, 2007

   By the District Director, New York District Office, Northeast Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is an Official Citation issued pursuant to Section 503(b)(5) of
       the Communications Act of 1934, as amended ("Act"), to M.J.
       Electronics for violation of Section 302(b) of the Act, and Section
       2.803(a)(1) of the Commission's Rules ("Rules").

    2. Investigation by the Enforcement Bureau's New York Office revealed
       that M.J. Electronics offered for sale on its website various
       non-certified 1.2 GHz video transmitters, and also video transmitters
       that operate on 2.4 GHz. The transmitters range in output power from
       100 mW to 1500 mW, and include models MJ-1200MC, MJ-2400VHT, MJ-808HP,
       MJ-2400VH, and MJ-VT07WP.

    3. Section 302(b) of the Act provides that "[n]o person shall
       manufacture, import, sell, offer for sale, or ship devices or home
       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 that is 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..."
       Pursuant to Section 15.201(b) of the Rules, 47 C.F.R. S 15.201(b),
       intentional radiators must be authorized in accordance with the FCC's
       certification procedures prior to the initiation of marketing in the
       United States.

    4. The 1.2 GHz wireless video systems operate within the restricted
       frequency band 960 MHz to 1.240 GHz  listed in Section 15.205(a) of
       the Rules, 47 C.F.R. S 15.205(a). Operation on 1.2 GHz is specifically
       restricted to aeronautical navigation and the Enforcement Bureau has
       received complaints from the Federal Aviation Administration ("FAA")
       concerning 1.2 GHz transmitters that cause harmful interference to the
       FAA's Tactical Air Navigation System. Because 1.2 GHz is a restricted
       frequency, wireless video transmitters operating on 1.2 GHz cannot
       comply with the FCC's technical standards and therefore cannot be
       certificated or marketed for use by the general public or non-federal
       government entities. Accordingly, it appears that M.J. Electronics has
       violated Section 302(b) of the Act and Section 2.803(a)(1) of the
       Rules by marketing in the United States radio frequency devices that
       are not eligible to receive a grant of certification. Similarly, M.J.
       Electronics would be in violation of Section 302(b) of the Act and
       Section 2.803(a)(1) of the Rules if the transmitters it is selling
       that operate on 2.4 GHz are not FCC certified.

    5. Violations of the Act or the Commission's Rules may subject the
       violator to substantial monetary forfeitures, seizure of equipment
       through in rem forfeiture action, and criminal sanctions, including

   6. Pursuant to Sections 4(i), 4(j), and 403 of the Act, M.J. Electronics
   is directed to provide the documents and information specified herein,
   within 10 days from the date of this Citation:

     a. Provide name and address of the source, distributor and/or importer
        from whom you acquired the 1.2 GHz wireless cameras.

     b. Provide a list of the transmitters you sell that operate on 2.4 GHz
        and identify which transmitters have FCC certification.

      1. M.J. Electronics may request an interview at the closest FCC Office,
         which is:

   47 C.F.R. S 2.803(a)(1).

   Section 15.205(a) allows intentional radiators to transmit only spurious
   emissions in the restricted frequency bands. 47 C.F.R. S 2.1 defines
   spurious emissions as "Emission on a frequency or frequencies which are
   outside the necessary bandwidth and the level of which may be reduced
   without affecting the corresponding transmission of information. Spurious
   emissions include harmonic emissions, parasitic emissions, intermodulation
   products and frequency conversion products, but exclude out-of-band
