RE: Amateur Radio license K6JSI--Repeater Operation; Case #EB-2005-2712

Dear Mr. Stouffer:

 

On September 1, 2005, we notified you that we received a complaint alleging that you are operating an uncoordinated repeater on 441.650 MHz at Mt. St. Helena, and causing interference to the coordinated KD6FVA repeater on the same frequency. The complaint indicated that you have been made aware of the interference and the apparent lack of coordination, but that you have declined to resolve the interference. You responded to our letter on October 7 and 17, 2005, but you were unable to show that your repeater is coordinated.

 

Section 97.205 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. 97.205, states that where there is interference between a coordinated and an uncoordinated repeater, "the licensee of the uncoordinated repeater has primary responsibility to resolve the interference." Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 308(b), gives the Commission the authority to request information from a licensee regarding the operation of a radio station. Accordingly, you are requested to respond to this letter within 20 days of receipt detailing what steps you are taking to resolve the interference to coordinated repeater KD6FVA.

 

In an inquiry of this type, we are required to advise you that Congress has made punishable a willfully false or misleading reply and that the information you submit will be used to determine what, if any, action to take in this matter. See 18 of the United States Code, Section 1001. Address your response to 1270 Fairfield Road at the above letterhead address.
