Document Number: W201432900006

The Los Angeles Office received information that an unlicensed broadcast radio station on 95.1

MHz was allegedly operating in Pacoima, CA. On November 7, 2013, agents from this office

confirmed by direction finding techniques that radio signals on frequency 95.1 MHz were

emanating from Centro Cristiano Puerta de Bendicion at 10556 Ilex Ave, Pacoima, CA. Public

records indicate you are the owners of the property. The Commission’s records show that no

license was issued for operation of a broadcast station at this location on 95.1 MHz in Pacoima,


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. §§


et seq. The field strength of the signal on frequency 95.1 MHz exceeded the maximum permitted

level of 250 microvolts per meter (µV/m) at 3 meters for non-licensed devices. Thus, this station

is operating in violation of 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 proof of your license or

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
