       the Communications Act of 1934, as amended ("Act"), to Global Crossing

       14^th floors at 1100 Main Street, Kansas City generated a radio
       frequency signal on approximately 839.68 MHz that was causing harmful
       interference to a Cingular Wireless/AT&T Mobility receive site. The
       observed signal in the Global Crossing switch room appeared to be
       generated by multiple pieces of equipment/cards used to provide T1
       services to Global Crossing clients and was not coming from a single
       source/location. These devices/cards appeared to be Part 15
       non-licensed transmitters.

       unintentional, or incidental radiator is subject to the conditions

       Global Crossing's Part 15 equipment caused interference to a licensed
       Personal Communications Service receive site, in violation of this
