                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-11-SF-0183

   Document Number: W201132960017

   The San Francisco Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
   radio station on 88.3 MHz was allegedly operating in Soledad, California.
   On August 11, 2011, agents from this office confirmed by direction finding
   techniques that radio signals on frequency 88.3 MHz were emanating from a
   residence in Soledad, California. The Commission's records show that no
   license was issued for operation of a broadcast station at this location
   on 88.3 MHz in Soledad, California.

   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 that complies with the
   standards established in Part 15 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.
   S:S: 15.1 et seq. Your operation on frequency 88.3 MHz was measured at
   2,467 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 692 meters. This exceeds the
   allowable unlicensed limit of 250 uV/m at 3 meters established in Part 15.
   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 of this illegal
   operation to severe penalties, including, but not limited to, substantial
   monetary forfeitures, 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.
