   By the District Director, Dallas Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is an Official Citation issued pursuant to Section 503(b)(5) of
       the Communications Act of 1934, as amended ("Act"), to BizCom for
       marketing in the United States unauthorized radio frequency devices in
       violation of Section 302(b) of the Act, and Section 2.803 of the
       Commission's Rules ("Rules"). As explained below, future violations of
       the Commission's rules in this regard may subject your company to
       monetary forfeitures.

    2. Investigation by the FCC's Dallas Office revealed that on July 28,
       2009,  BizCom  sold to and installed two "cell to tower jamming units"
       at End Zone Athletics, Arlington, Texas.

    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

   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 as required by S: 2.925 and other relevant sections in this

   Additionally, Section 2.803(g) of the Rules provides in pertinent part

   [R]adio frequency devices that could not be authorized or legally operated
   under the current rules ... shall not be operated, advertised, displayed,
   offered for sale or lease, sold or leased, or otherwise marketed absent a
   license issued under part 5 of this chapter or a special temporary
   authorization issued by the Commission.

    4. Pursuant to Section 15.201(b) of the Rules, intentional radiators must
       be authorized in accordance with the Commission's certification
       procedures prior to the initiation of marketing in the U.S. It does
       not, however, appear that the above-cited jammer is capable of
       receiving a grant of certification. In this regard, the main purpose
       of the jammer is to block or interfere with radio communications. Such
       use is clearly prohibited by Section 333 of the Act, which states that
       "[n]o person shall willfully or maliciously interfere with or cause
       interference to any radio communications of any station licensed or
       authorized by or under this Act or operated by the United States
       Government." The Commission has issued two Public Notices specifically
       stating that the sale and use of transmitters designed to prevent, jam
       or interfere with the operation of cellular and personal
       communications service ("PCS") telephones (XXX) XXXX-XXXhus, this
       device cannot comply with the FCC's technical standards and therefore
       cannot be certified or marketed.

    5. If, after receipt of this citation, you violate the Communications Act
       or the Commission's Rules in any manner described herein, the
       Commission may impose monetary forfeitures not to exceed $16,000 for
       each such violation or each day of a continuing violation.

    6. If you choose to do so, you may respond to this citation within 30
       days from the date of this letter either through (1) a personal
       interview at the Commission Field Office nearest to your place of
       business, or (2) a written statement. Your response should specify the
       actions that BizCom is taking to ensure that it does not violate the
       Commission's rules governing the marketing of radio frequency jamming
       devices in the future and reference file number EB-09-DL-0096. The
       nearest Commission Field Office is located in Dallas, Texas. You may
       contact this office by telephone, (214) 575-6361, to schedule this
       interview, which must take place within 30 days of this Citation.

    7. Any statement or information provided by you may be used by the
       Commission to determine if further enforcement action is required. Any
       knowingly or willfully false statement made in reply to this Citation
       is punishable by fine or imprisonment.

    8. IT IS ORDERED that copies of this Citation shall be sent by First
       Class U.S. Mail and Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested to BizCom
       at its  address of  record.
