NOTICE OF UNLICENSED OPERATION

Case Number: EB-FIELDNER-13-00005934
Document Number: W201332380012
The New York Office received information that a taxi service was operating on unauthorized
frequencies 451.300 MHz and 456.300 MHz in Bronx, New York. On January 9, 2013, agents of
the New York Office monitored transmissions on the frequency 451.300 MHz in Bronx, New
York. The agents confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio signals on the frequency
451.300 MHz were emanating from a base station located at UPS Radio Dispatcher, Inc., 1303
Bronx River Avenue, Bronx, New York. The agents conducted an inspection at UPS Radio
Dispatcher, Inc.'s office and observed that the base station frequency was set at 451.300 MHz
and its mobile units were operating on the frequency 456.300 MHz. The Commission's records
show that no license was issued for operation of a base station on 451.300 MHz or a mobile unit
on 456.300 MHz at this location in Bronx, New York.
Radio stations must be licensed by the FCC pursuant to 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 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
