                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-08-MA-037/061

   Document Number: W200832600055

   The Miami Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 101.9 MHz was allegedly operating in the Oakland Park area. On
   March 4, 2008, agents from this office confirmed by direction finding
   techniques that radio signals on frequency 101.9 MHz were emanating from
   an antenna mounted on a pole at 4631 NW 8th Ave., Oakland Park, Florida,
   next to door labeled 4641. On March 14, 2008, agents from this office
   confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency
   89.5 MHz were also emanating from another antenna mounted on an antenna
   structure at the same property. On June 3, 2008, an agent confirmed by
   direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 101.9 MHz
   were the only radio signals emanating from this property. According to
   Florida records, you are the owner of this property. The Commission's
   records show that no license was issued for operation of a broadcast
   station on 89.5 MHz or 101.9 MHz at this location in Oakland Park,

   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 89.5 MHz and 101.9 MHz were measured at 45,097 microvolts per
   meter (uV/m) and 21,437 uV/m at 298 meters and 380 meters, respectively,
   which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 250 uV/m at 3 meters for
   non-licensed devices. 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.
