   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 regarding

   information that you disclose in your reply.
