                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-07-OR-089

   Document Number: W20083262001

   The New Orleans Office received information that an unlicensed broadband
   internet service on 911.6 MHz, 918.4 MHz and 925.0 MHz was allegedly
   operating in Mountain Home, AR in excess of the power limitations
   established in Part 15 of the Commission's rules. On August 21, 2007, an
   agent from this office confirmed by direction finding techniques that
   radio signals on frequencies 911.6 MHz, 918.4 MHz and 925.0 MHz were
   emanating from your antenna structure in Mountain Home, AR. The
   Commission's records show that no license was issued for operation of a
   wireless broadband internet service on 911.6 MHz, 918.4 MHz and 925.0 MHz
   at this location in Mountain Home, AR.

   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. S:S:  15.1 et seq. The field strengths of the signals on
   frequencies 911.6 MHz, 918.4 MHz, and 925.0 MHz were measured at 1109,
   3126, and 2786 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 9 meters, respectively,
   which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 200 uV/m at 3 meters for
   non-licensed devices. Thus, these stations are 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. S:S: 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. 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.
