   Case Number: EB-07-DL-014

   Document Number: W20073250006

   The Dallas Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 96.3  MHz was allegedly operating in Austin, Texas. On January
   23, 2007, agents confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio
   signals on frequency 96.3  MHz were emanating from your property on Kawnee
   Dr., in Austin, Texas. According to property records, you are the owner of
   this property. The Commission's records show that no license was issued
   for operation of a broadcast station on 96.3 MHz  at this location in
   Austin, Texas.

   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 field strength of the signal on
   frequency 96.3 MHz was measured at 59,212  microvolts per meter (uV/m) at
   188  meters, which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 uV/m at 3
   meters for non-licensed devices. Thus, this station is operating in
   violation of 47 U.S.C. S 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. 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.
   Additionally, if you are not currently occupying the property at 607
   Kawnee Dr., provide the name of the current tenant. 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. 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.
