                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number:  EB-FIELDNER-16-00021991	Document Number:

The New York Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
radio station on 95.9 MHz was allegedly operating in East Orange,
New Jersey.  On June 22, 2016, agents from this office confirmed by
direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 95.9 MHz were
emanating from 55 Washington Street, Suite 302, East Orange, New Jersey.
The Commission's records show that no license was issued for operation
of a broadcast station on 95.9 MHz at this location in East Orange,
New Jersey.

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 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.  On June 22, 2016, the field strength
of the signal on frequency 95.9 MHz exceeded the maximum permitted level
of 250 microvolts per meter (uV/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 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).  Be advised that this warning does not preclude this office
from pursuing additional sanctions based upon our investigation of
this incident.


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.
