   Case Number: EB-07-CF-290

   Document Number: W20083234001

   The Columbia Office received a complaint of interference to the Gallaudet
   University campus police radio system on the frequency of 461.8875 MHz. On
   November 13, 2007, an agent from this office inspected the radios being
   operated at the Kellogg Conference Hotel on campus at Gallaudet
   University. The inspection revealed that one radio was programmed for
   operation on 461.8875/466.8857 MHz causing the interference to the campus
   police radio system. Additionally, several other radios being used by
   staff personnel were found operating on 469.8875, 464.4250, 467.8750 and
   467.900 MHz. Commission records show Kellogg Conference Hotel is not
   authorized to operate on any of the frequencies referenced above.

   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 47
   U.S.C. S: 301 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 510).


   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.
