Document Number:  W201632900001
The Los Angeles Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio station on 93.7
MHz was allegedly operating near Arleta, CA.  On February 26, 2016, agents from this office 
confirmed by radio direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 93.7 MHz were 
emanating from a building in Arleta, CA. 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 at 
this location on 93.7 MHz in Arleta, CA.   
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 93.7 MHz exceeded the maximum permitted 
level of level of 250 µV/m at 3 meters for non-licensed devices.  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 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. §§ 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.
