       agent observed that ORC Repeater failed to monitor the frequency

       Public Safety Pool) during periods of continuous operation. The call
       sign shall be transmitted by voice in the English language or by
       International Morse Code in accordance with paragraph (b) of this
       section...." On March 23, 2006 between 5:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., ORC
       Repeater did not transmit its call sign identification WQDL718.
