NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

Case Numbers: EB-FIELDWR-13-00007506
Document Number: W201332980013
The Seattle Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio station on 1700 kHz
was allegedly operating in Everett, Washington. On March 22, 2013, FCC agents confirmed by
direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 1700 kHz were emanating from your
residence in Everett, Washington 98201. The Commission’s records show that no license was
issued for operation of a broadcast station at this location on 1700 kHz in Everett, Washington.
Radio stations 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 that
complies with the standards established in Part 15 of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. §§ 15.1
et seq. Your operation on frequency 1710 kHz was measured at 6,400 µV/m at approximately
251 meters. This exceeds the allowable unlicensed limit of 24000/1700(kHz) or 14.11 µV/m at
30 meters established in section 15.209(a) for operation on 1700 kHz, 47 C.F.R §§ 15.209(a).
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 of this illegal operation to severe penalties, including, but not limited to, substantial
monetary forfeitures, in rem arrest action against the offending radio equipment, and criminal
sanctions including imprisonment. (See 47 U.S.C. §§ 401, 501, 503 and 510.)

UNLICENSED OPERATION OF THIS RADIO STATION MUST BE DISCONTINUED
IMMEDIATELY

.
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.
