Case Number:  EB-FIELDSCR-16-00021342
Document Number:  W201632620001
The New Orleans Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio station on 87.9
MHz was allegedly operating in Jefferson, LA. On March 30, 2016, an agent from this office 
confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 87.9 MHz were 
emanating from a residence in Jefferson, LA. Public records list you as the owner of the 
property. The Commission’s records show that no license was issued for operation of a broadcast 
station on 87.9 MHz at this location in Jefferson, LA.
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. The field strength of the signal on frequency 87.9 MHz exceeded the maximum permitted 
level of 100 microvolts per meter (µV/m) at 3 meters for non-licensed devices. In addition, 
fundamental emissions from intentional radiators operating under Part 15 shall not be located in 
the frequency band 76-88 MHz. Thus, this station is 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.)
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 
You may contact this office if you have any questions.
