    SUBJECT: Warning Notice--Unlicensed Radio Operation
    Case #EB-2004-2560

    Dear Sir:

    Information before the Commission indicates that your vehicle bearing New Jersey license plate AF348Y, Truck #2113, is a source of radio transmissions on the Ten Meter Amateur Radio Band (28.085 MHz). Operation of radio transmitting equipment on the ten Meter Amateur Band requires a license from the FCC, which can be obtained only after passing an examination.

    While many truckers use Citizens band radio equipment, please be advised that operation of radio transmitting equipment without a license is a violation of Section 301 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. Section 301, and will subject the operator to fine or imprisonment, as well as an in rem seizure of any non-certified radio transmitting equipment, in cooperation with the United States Attorney for your jurisdiction. Monetary forfeitures normally range from $7,500 to $10,000.

    You are requested to contact me at 717-338-2502 to discuss this matter.

    CC: FCC Northeastern Regional Director

    Editor's note: Bryan S. Johnson of Auto Elite Transport responded to the FCC on May 25: "Auto Elite Transport operates all company equipment and does not authorize illegal CB radios in our equipment," Johnson said. "We will look into this matter immediately and remove all illegal equipment from this truck."
