            proper  operation and  use of  each  transmitter 
            for   which   they  are   licensed.    In   this 
            connection,   licensees  shall   exercise   such 
            direction and control as is necessary to  assure 
            that  all  authorized  facilities  are  employed 
            only  in a  permissible manner.''   The  station 
            was operating  with effective radiated power  of 
            267  watts  which is  in  excess  of  the  power 
            stated in the station license. 

  2.b.      47  C.F.R. 90.403(a)(2):  ``licensees of  radio 
            stations  in  the  private  land  mobile   radio 
            services shall  be directly responsible for  the 
            proper  operation and  use of  each  transmitter 
            for   which   they  are   licensed.    In   this 
            connection,   licensees  shall   exercise   such 
            direction and control as is necessary to  assure 
            that  all  authorized  facilities  are  employed 
            only  in a  permissible manner.''   The  station 
            had in operation  mobile units in excess of  the 
            maximum 20  mobile units stated  in the  station 
            license.  

  2.c.      47  C.F.R.  90.425(a):   ``...Each  station  or 
            system shall  be identified by the  transmission 
            of   the   assigned  call   sign   during   each 
            transmission  or exchange  of transmissions,  or 
            once   each  15   minutes  during   periods   of 
            continuous operation.   The call  sign shall  be

            times  of  monitoring, it  was  noted  that  the
