                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number: EB-FIELDSCR-15-00019330
	Document Number:  W201532600001

On June 8 and June 11, 2015, agents from this office confirmed by
direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 107.1 MHz
were emanating from 1251 NW 54[th] St., Miami, Florida 33142.  On May 16,
2012, you admitted to agents from this office you were the operator of an
unlicensed radio station on 98.1 MHz at the same location and voluntarily
relinquished the transmitter.  This location is also the registered
address for several businesses operated by you.  The Commission's records
show that no license was issued for operation of a broadcast station on
107.1 MHz or any other frequency at this location in Miami, Florida.

Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 47 U.S.C. §
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. §§
15.1 et seq.  On June 8 and June 11, 2015, the field strength of the
signal on frequency 107.1 MHz exceeded the maximum permitted level of
250 microvolts per meter (uV/m) at 3 meters for non-licensed devices.
Thus, this station was operating in violation of 47 U.S.C. § 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 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. §§ 401, 501, 503
and 510).  Be advised that this warning does not preclude this office
from pursuing additional sanctions based upon our investigation of
this incident.


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. § 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.
