                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number:  EB-FIELDNER-16-00022595
	Document Number:  W201732380003

The New York Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast
radio station on 1700 kHz was allegedly operating in Brooklyn, New York.
On October 26, 2016, agents from this office confirmed by direction
finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 1700 kHz were emanating
from your building located at 272 Kingston Avenue, Brooklyn, New York. The
Commission's records show that no license was issued for operation of
a broadcast station on 1700 kHz at this location in Brooklyn, New York.

Radio stations operating on many frequencies, including 1700 kHz,
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 Commissions' rules permit operation on
any frequency between 525 kHz and 1705 kHz with a transmitter whose input
power of the final RF stage of the transmitter does not exceed 100 mW.
See Section 15.209 of the Commission's Rules, 47 C.F.R. § 15.209.
If the transmitter does not comply with this requirement then the
field strength of the signal on frequency 1700 kHz may not exceeded the
14.1uV/m at 30 meters.	See Section 15.209 of the Commission's Rules, 47
C.F.R. § 15.209.  The station apparently did not comply with either of
these requirements and thus 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.
