with you regarding the complaints and gave you similar verbal warnings.  In spite of these 
warnings, the New York Office continued to receive information that you were operating radio 
transmitting equipment on frequencies in the Amateur Radio Services, Land Mobile Radio 
Services, and Personal Radio Services without authorization.  On April 7, 2016, agents from this 
office confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 147.960 MHz

antennas mounted on the rooftop of your residence building.  When agents interviewed you, you admitted to 
operating on 147.96 MHz that evening and not having an amateur license.
