By the Resident Agent, Portland Resident Agent Office, Region Three,
Enforcement Bureau:

 This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of
 the Commission's rules (Rules) to Robert C. Dickeson, licensee of amateur
 radio license WA7UZG, in Lewiston, Idaho.  Pursuant to Section 1.89(a)
 of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does not preclude the Enforcement
 Bureau from further action if warranted, including issuing a Notice of
 Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the violation noted herein.

 On September 6, 2016, in response to a complaint alleging that you were
 operating a non-coordinated repeater on 146.52 MHz in Lewiston, Idaho,
 an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Portland Office investigated and
 observed the following violation:

		47 C.F.R. ยง 97.205(c):  "Where the transmissions
		of a repeater cause harmful interference to another
		repeater, the two station licensees are equally and
		fully responsible for resolving the interference
		unless the operation of one station is recommended
		by a frequency coordinator  and the operation of the
		other station is not. In that case, the licensee of the
		non-coordinated repeater has primary responsibility to
		resolve the interference".  During an investigation
		conducted on September 6, 2016, you were not able to
		show that your repeater operating on frequency 146.52
		MHz was coordinated.

 Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
 and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional information concerning
 the violations and any remedial actions taken.  Therefore, you must
 submit a written statement concerning this matter within twenty (20)
 days of release of this Notice.  The response (i) must fully explain each
 violation, including all relevant surrounding facts and circumstances,
 (ii) must contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to correct
 each violation and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must include a time
 line for completion of any pending corrective action(s).  The response
 must be complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by reference to
 other communications or answers to other notices.

 In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct you to support
 its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under
 penalty of perjury, signed and dated by you with personal knowledge
 of the representations provided in the response, verifying the truth
 and accuracy of the information therein, and confirming that all of
 the information requested by this Notice which is in the licensee's
 possession, custody, control, or knowledge has been produced.
 To knowingly and willfully make any false statement or conceal
 any material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by fine or
 imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.

 All replies and documentation sent in response to this Notice should
 be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to
 the following address:

		     Federal Communications Commission
		     Portland Resident Agent Office
		     P.O. Box 61469
		     Vancouver, Washington 98666-1469

 This Notice shall be sent to Robert C. Dickeson, Amateur Radio License
 WA7UZG at his address of record.
