                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number: EB-FIELDSCR-16-00021565
	Document Number:  W201632600008

On April 27, 2016, in response to a complaint of radio interference
to licensed public safety communications, agents from the Miami Office
confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency
458.325 MHz were emanating from Hytera and Motorola portable two-way radio
equipment used by employees of Designed Electrical Solutions, Inc. (DES)
at a construction site at 7875 NW 107[th] Ave., Doral, FL 33178.
These same portable radios also operated on the frequencies 463.8125
MHz, 468.825 MHz, 461.025 MHz, and 466.025 MHz.  The construction crew
was also in possession of other Motorola portable radios which operated
on 152.945 MHz, 157.53 MHz, and 154.54 MHz.  DES personnel stated that
they owned and operated the radios, and did not have a radio license
for their operation.  The Commission's records show that no license was
issued for operation of a radio station on 458.325 MHz, or any of the
aforementioned frequencies, at this location in Doral, Florida.

Radio stations operating on many frequencies, including 458.325 MHz
and the other frequencies mentioned above, 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 Hytera and
Motorola transmitters used by DES are authorized under Part 90 of the
Commission's Rules and may only be operated with a valid FCC radio station
license. 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 reply.

You may contact this office if you have any questions.

Regional Director
