   By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent Office, Western Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is an Official Citation issued pursuant to Section 503(b)(5) of
       the Communications Act of 1934, as amended ("Act"), to Cal-Centron
       Wholesale Co of Stockton, California, (Cal-Centron) for violation of
       Section 302(b) of the Communications Act, and Section 2.803(a)(1) of
       the Commission's Rules ("Rules") for marketing unauthorized radio
       frequency devices in the United States.

    2. On November 7, 2008 an investigation by the Enforcement Bureau's
       Anchorage Resident Agent Office revealed that Cal-Centron was
       marketing unauthorized devices, specifically transmitter models
       PK-710A, PK-811T, PK-812T, all of which operate in the 2400 MHz band,
       and associated receivers. None of these devices have been certificated
       for sale or use in the United States.

    3. Section 302(b) of the Act provides that "[n]o person shall
       manufacture, import, sell, offer for sale, or ship devices or home
       electronic equipment and systems, or use devices, which fail to comply
       with regulations promulgated pursuant to this section." Section
       2.803(a)(1) of the Commission's implementing regulations provides that
       "no person shall sell or lease, or offer for sale or lease (including
       advertising for sale or lease), or import, ship, or distribute for the
       purpose of selling or leasing or offering for sale or lease, any radio
       frequency device unless ... [i]n the case of a device subject to
       certification, such device has been authorized by the Commission in
       accordance with the rules in this chapter and is properly identified
       and labeled. . . ." Cal-Centron's marketing of these devices violates
       both of these sections.

    4. Violations of the Act or the Commission's Rules may subject the
       violator to substantial monetary forfeitures, seizure of equipment
       through in rem forfeiture action, and criminal sanctions, including

       Agent Office, PO Box 221849, Anchorage, AK 99522-1849 within 14 days
