   "King Dennis Craig, surnamed Bynum" submitted a letter, claiming that, as
   of February 24, 2012, he owned the land near Cosby, Tennessee formerly
   owned by Mr. Young and that he was broadcasting from there. Letter from
   King Dennis Craig Surnamed Bynum to Agent, Atlanta Office, South Central
   Region, Enforcement Bureau (Apr. 3, 2012) (on file in
   EB-FIELDSCR-12-00001026). Mr. Bynum claimed to be an American National not
   subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. On April 19, 2012, an
   agent from the Atlanta Office telephoned Mr. Young and asked if Mr. Bynum
   had responded on his behalf. Mr. Young replied that he had no knowledge of
   the letter from Mr. Bynum and that he had nothing to do with the station
   anymore. We note that Sevier County Tennessee property records show that,
   as of May 17, 2012, Mr. Young owned the property where the transmitter was
   located. See Tennessee Trustee Webpage at (last visited May 17, 2012).
