                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: September 18, 2006

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement
   Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Town of Harrison, licensee of Land
       Mobile Radio Station KB32589, Harrison, New York.

    2. On August 28 and 29, 2006, agents of the Commission's New York Office
       investigated a complaint of interference to public safety radio
       communications systems in the area of Harrison, NY, and observed the
       following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S 90.403(e): "Licensees shall take reasonable precautions to
   avoid causing harmful interference. This includes monitoring the
   transmitting frequency for communications in progress and such other
   measures as may be necessary to minimize the potential for causing
   interference." On August 29, 2006, an agent determined that the source of
   the interference was a mobile transmitter in a vehicle (#L28373) operated
   by the Town of Harrison, Department of Public Works, Highway Division,
   pursuant to its license for Station KB32589. The agent determined that
   station KB32589 transmitted a continuous carrier on 153.815 MHz, which
   also activated the Town of Harrison's associated repeater frequency,
   155.895 MHz, which in turn caused interference to co-channel public safety
   communications in progress.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Town of Harrison
       must submit a written statement concerning this matter within twenty
       (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 Town of Harrison. 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:

   Federal Communications Commission

   New York Office

   201 Varick Street, Suite 1151

   New York, NY 10014

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Town of Harrison at its address of
       record.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       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 statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
   punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
