                        NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

	Case Number:  EB-FIELDWR-16-00022519
	Document Number:  W201632960001

The San Francisco Office of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
received information that an unlicensed radio station on 462.600 MHz and
467.600 MHz was allegedly operating in Napa, California.  On August 3
and 5, 2016, an agent from this office confirmed by direction finding
techniques that radio signals on frequency 462.600 MHz and 467.600
MHz were emanating from your business location in Napa, California.
These frequencies are reserved for the General Mobile Radio Service
(GMRS) and require a station license issued by the FCC.  The Commission's
records show that no license was issued for operation of a GMRS radio
station to the Napa Jet Center on 462.600 MHz and 467.600 MHz at your
location in Napa, California.

Radio stations operating on many frequencies, including 462.600 MHz
and 467.600 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.

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.
