                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-07-SD-246

   Document Number: W20083294001

   The San Diego Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
   radio station on 1620 kHz was allegedly operating in San Jacinto,
   California. On December 14, 2007, an agent from this office confirmed by
   radio direction finding techniques that a radio transmitter operating on
   the frequency 1620 kHz was located at the Music Building inside the Mt.
   San Jacinto Campus, San Jacinto, California. The Commission's records show
   that no license was issued for operation of a broadcast station at this
   location on 1620 kHz in San Jacinto, California.

   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 that complies with the
   standards established in Part 15 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.
   S:S:  15.1 et seq. Your operation on frequency 1620 kHz  was measured at
   65,000 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 100 meters. This exceeds the
   allowable unlicensed limit of 14.8 uV/m at 30 meters established in 47
   C.F.R. S: 15.209(a). 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. 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.
