                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: August 30, 2006

   By the District Director, Columbia Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Yellow Cab Co. of DC Inc. ("Yellow
       Cab"), licensee of radio station KGH203 in Washington, D.C.

    2. On August 18, 2006, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's  Columbia
       Office monitored  radio station KGH203  located at 1636 Bladensburg
       Road, Washington, D.C., and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 90.403(c): "Except for stations that have been granted
        exclusive channels under this part and that are classified as
        commercial mobile radio service providers pursuant to part 20 of this
        chapter, each licensee must restrict all transmissions to the minimum
        practical transmission time and must employ an efficient operating
        procedure designed to maximize the utilization of the spectrum." The
        agent observed that Yellow Cab  continuously transmitted a data
        stream  on frequency the 451.950 MHz,  not allowing other licensees
        use of the frequency. Because Yellow Cab's license for station KGH203
        does not grant it exclusive use of 451.950 MHz, its continuous
        transmission on 451.950 MHz violated 47 C.F.R. S 90.403(c).

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 90.425(a): "Stations licensed under this part . . . 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 agent
        monitored the station from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM and observed that
        Yellow Cab did not transmit its call sign during that time period.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Yellow Cab Co. of
       DC Inc, must submit a written statement concerning this matter within
       20 days of release of this Notice. The response must fully explain
       each violation, must contain a statement of the specific action(s)
       taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and should
       include a time line for completion of pending corrective action(s).
       The response must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or
       officer of Yellow Cab Co. of DC Inc. All replies and documentation
       sent in response to this Notice should be marked with the File No. and
       NOV No. specified above, and mailed to the following address:

       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
