                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number:  EB-FIELDWR-16-00020739
	Document Number:  W201632940002

The San Diego Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
radio station on 87.9 MHz was allegedly operating in San Diego, CA.
On April 5, 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 San Diego, 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 87.9 MHz in
San Diego, 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 87.9 MHz
exceeded the maximum permitted level of 100 microvolts per meter (uV/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 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 reply.

You may contact this office if you have any questions.
