                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-09-MA-0194

   Document Number: W201032600017

   The Miami Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio
   station on 1120 kHz was allegedly operating in the Miami area. On November
   24, 2009, agents from this office confirmed by direction finding
   techniques that radio signals on frequency 1120 kHz were emanating from
   777 NW 106th St., Miami, FL. This Office has information that you are the
   operator of this station. The Commission's records show that no license
   was issued for operation of a broadcast station on 1120 kHz at this
   location in Miami, FL.

   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 1120 kHz was measured at 134,000 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at
   232 meters which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 21.43 uV/m at 30
   meters established in Section 15.209 of the Rules. Thus, the 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 or providing services and
   facilities incidental to the operation of an unlicensed radio transmitter
   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 510).


   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.

   Resident Agent
