                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-07-DL-210

   Document Number: W20083250003

   The Dallas Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 90.1 MHz was allegedly operating from Sul Ross State
   University, Alpine, Texas. On January 29, 2008, an agent from this office
   confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency
   90.1 MHz were emanating from an antenna mounted on the Francois Fine Arts
   Building, located on the Sul Ross State University Campus in Alpine,
   Texas. The Commission's records show that no license was issued for
   operation of a broadcast station on 90.1 MHz at this location in Alpine,
   TX. During an inspection of the station, the faculty advisor for the
   station admitted that students at the University operated the unlicensed
   station. He also discontinued operations immediately.

   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 strength of the signal on
   frequency 90.1 MHz was measured at 876 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 988
   meters, which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 uV/m at 3 meters
   for non-licensed devices. Thus, this station was 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
