	Case Number:  EB-FIELDSCR-16-00022288
	Document Number:  W201632480002

The Atlanta Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
television station on Channel 10 (192 to 198 MHz) was allegedly operating
in Morehead, KY.  On August 16, 2016, agents from this office confirmed
by direction finding techniques that radio signals on Channel 10 were
emanating from a tower located at 38° 11' 08.7" N and 083° 25' 11.7"
W, near Morehead, KY.  The Commission's records show no current license
for operation of a broadcast television station on Channel 10 at this
location in Morehead, KY.

Television stations operating on many frequencies, including Channel 10
(192 to 198 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 193.25 MHz was measured at 3090946 microvolts per meter (uV/m)
at 3 meters, which exceeded the maximum permitted level of 150 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).


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.
