   Vallejo, CA 94589

                         NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

   Case Number: EB-FIELDWR-12-00000308

   Document Number: W201232960006

   The San Francisco Office received information that a station allegedly
   operating on 482.993 MHz was operating at Kaiser Permanente, 975 Sereno
   Drive, Vallejo California, and causing interference to the Vallejo Fire
   Department radio frequency, 482.9875 MHz. On January 27 and February 1,
   2012, agents from this office confirmed by direction finding techniques
   that radio signals on frequency 482.993 MHz were emanating from the Kaiser
   Permanente Vallejo Medical Center's signal booster system. The
   Commission's records show that no license was issued for operation of a
   station at this location on 482.993 MHz in Vallejo, 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. Although the signal booster was labeled as a Part 15 device,
   the Bird Technologies Group Signal Booster 2 (Bird Technologies, TX RX
   Systems, Inc., serial number 118675-D, FCC Identifier: EZZ5PI616850), is
   authorized for use under Part 90 of the FCC Rules. 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.
