                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-10-MA-0148

   Document Number: W201032600065

   On August 12, 2010, Federal Communications Commission ("FCC" or
   "Commission") agents from the Enforcement Bureau's Miami Office located a
   radio signal on frequency 169.45 MHz emanating from your residence in
   Lighthouse Point, Florida. The radio signal was interfering with a Federal
   Government user's licensed communications system. The agents observed that
   you were using a T1G Wireless Guitarist Transmitter, a T Series wireless
   microphone system, manufactured by Shure Incorporated ("Shure") with FCC
   ID DD4T1A. The agents also observed that the interference ceased when the
   Shure wireless transmitter was disconnected.

   Your Shure wireless transmitter is equipment or "apparatus" used to
   transmit signals by radio. The FCC requires a license to use such
   equipment in the United States pursuant to 47 U.S.C. S: 301. Accordingly,
   a license is required to operate this transmitter. The Commission's
   records show that no license has been issued for operation of any radio
   devices on 169.45 MHz  from your residence in Lighthouse Point, Florida.

   You are hereby warned that operation of radio transmitting equipment
   without a valid FCC authorization constitutes a violation of the federal
   laws cited above and could subject you, the operator, to severe penalties,
   including, but not limited to, substantial monetary fines, seizure of the
   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.

   Excerpts from the Communications Act of 1934, As Amended

   Enforcement Bureau, "Inspection Fact Sheet," March 2005

   Wireless microphone operations cannot cause and must accept interference
   from other licensed operations in the band. If any interference from
   wireless microphone operation is received by government or non-government
   operation, the wireless microphone must cease operation on the frequency
   involved. See 47 C.F.R. S: 90.265(b)(4).

   There is an exception to this licensing requirement for certain
   transmitters operating pursuant to Part 15 of the Commission's rules
   ("Rules"), 47 C.F.R. S:S: 15.1 et seq.  The Shure wireless transmitter in
   question, however, is not authorized under Part 15 of the Rules. Rather,
   it is authorized to operate in the 169-172 MHz band pursuant to Part 90 of
   the Rules, 47 C.F.R. S: 90.265. Although this band is allocated for
   federal use, you may be eligible, as a non-governmental entity, to obtain
   a license to operate your wireless transmitter in this band. Applications
   are subject to government coordination. See  for information about
   applying for FCC licenses.
