Case Number: EB-FIELDWR-13-00008591
Document Number: W201332900005
The Los Angeles Office received information that a local television broadcaster was receiving
harmful interference to their licensed electronic news-gathering (ENG) system from radio
transmissions on the frequency of 2389.5 MHz. On May 10, 2013, an agent from this office used
direction-finding techniques to locate radio signals operating on this frequency emanating from a
wireless transmitter used at your residence in Arcadia, CA. When the power was disconnected
from the transmitter, the interference ceased. The Commission’s records show that no license
was issued for operation of a transmitter at this location on 2389.5 MHz in Arcadia, CA.
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.)


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

You may contact this office if you have any questions.
