In the Matter of


Licensee of Amateur Service Station KI6JIM


Adopted: July 8, 2013

Released: July 9, 2013

By the Deputy Chief, Mobility Division, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau:
1. Introduction. In this Order of Modification, we modify the license of James H. Schofield
(Schofield) for Amateur Radio Service Station KI6JIM by replacing General Class operator privileges
with Technician Class operator privileges. As explained below, we take this action pursuant to an earlier
order proposing to modify Schofield's license.1
Background. On November 29, 2012, W5YI Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (W5YI
VEC) sent an electronic data file to the Commission requesting that Schofield's operator license for
amateur Station KI6JIM be modified to upgrade from Technician Class to General Class amateur radio
operator privileges.2 Based on this application, the Commission granted Schofield a General Class
amateur service operator license on November 29, 2012. This license authorizes Schofield to be the
control operator of an amateur station transmitting on frequency bands authorized by Section 97.301(d) of
our Rules.3
By correspondence dated May 30, 2013, W5YI VEC notified the Commission that it had
made a typographical error in the November 29, 2012 data file and that a licensee other than Schofield
had qualified for a General Class operator license.4 Therefore, W5YI VEC urged us to modify
Schofield's license to correct the operator privileges authorized. Consequently, we proposed to modify
the license for Station KI6JIM to show Technician Class operator privileges.5
Discussion. The Order Proposing Modification was released on June 4, 2013. Schofield
did not protest the proposed modification of his license within the requisite thirty-day time frame.6
Accordingly, Schofield is deemed to have consented to the proposed modification.7 Based on the record
before us, we conclude that it is in the public interest to modify Schofield's license for Station KI6JIM by
replacing General Class operator privileges with Technician Class operator privileges.
