                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-07-CG-152

   Document Number: W20073232001

   The Chicago Office received information that your Citizens Band Radio
   Service radio station was being operated illegally and causing
   interference to Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Department's radio
   communications. On February 28, 2007, agents from this office inspected
   the radio station at your location and confirmed that you were operating a
   Yaesu FT-757, Galaxy DX 99V, Galaxy DX 44V, and General AP Hill DX 2517
   which are non-certified CB transceivers. Your transceivers were also
   connected to RF power amplifiers. By using non-certified equipment, you
   voided your authority to operate this station.

   Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 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
   510).

   UNLICENSED OPERATION OF THIS RADIO STATION MUST BE DISCONTINUED
   IMMEDIATELY.

   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 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.

   Acting District Director

   Chicago Office
