Document Number:  W201632900002
The Los Angeles Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio station on 95.1
MHz was allegedly operating in Panorama City, CA.  On February 26, 2016, agents from this 
office confirmed by radio direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 95.1 MHz
were emanating from a building in Panorama City, 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 95.1 MHz in Panorama City, CA.   
Radio stations operating on many frequencies, including 95.1 MHz, 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 or mode of operation 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 95.1 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.
