Notice of Unlicensed Operation, Interference Sent to N.Y. Man
Wednesday, June 05, 2019 | Comments

The FCC sent a notice of unlicensed operation and harmful interference to a New York man. Joseph Foster has 10 days to respond in writing.

The New York Office of the FCC Enforcement Bureau received a complaint from the Nassau County (New York) Police Department (NCPD) Emergency Ambulance Bureau (EAB) concerning harmful interference and unauthorized transmissions on the 468.1 MHz (MED 5), 467.95 MHz (MED 9) and 467.975 MHz (MED 10) frequencies, which are used for emergency response in Nassau County.

On March 16, FCC agents used direction-finding techniques to identify that the source of the unauthorized transmissions on 468.1 MHz was located at a multifamily dwelling on the 200 block of North Nassau Lane, Island Park, New York. Through further investigation April 11, detectives from the NCPD and FCC agents confirmed that Foster was the source of the unauthorized transmissions on 468.1 MHz and the harmful interference to the NCPD EAB.

FCC records show that no license was issued for Foster’s operation on 468.1 MHz in the Island Park, New York, area. Nonlicensed operation of Part 15 devices are subject to the condition that it must not cause harmful interference and, if harmful interference occurs, operation of the device must cease.

In his response, Joseph must discuss his operation of the Part 15 device and steps he is taking to avoid operating on unauthorized frequencies and preventing future interference.

The full notice is here.
