   Released: March 25, 2009

   By the Acting District Director, Columbia 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 Friendly Five Corp DBA Lincoln Cab,
       licensee of private land mobile station WPKM430 in Lanham, Maryland.

    2. On March 13, 2009, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's  Columbia 
       Office monitored  station WPKM430  located at 7705 Annapolis Road,
       Lanham, MD, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 1.903(b): "The holding of an authorization does not
        create any rights beyond the terms, conditions and period specified
        in the authorization." Friendly Five Corp DBA Lincoln Cab is licensed
        to operate a base station at a location identified as 7705 Annapolis
        Road, Lanham, MD, with coordinates 38-57-30.4N, 076-51-58.9W. During
        the inspection on March 13, 2009, the agent determined that the
        transmitter is physically located at this address; however, the
        approximate coordinates for this address are 38-57-08N 076-52-44W,
        about .8 of a mile southwest of the licensed coordinates. The license
        must be either modified to show the correct transmitter coordinates
        for that physical location, or the transmitter must be moved to the
        location specified on the license.

     b. 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."
        During monitoring by the agent, Friendly Five Corp DBA Lincoln Cab
        Inc.  continuously transmitted a data stream  and steady carrier on
        frequency 152.450 MHz,  not allowing other licensees use of the

     c. 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." During the inspection on March 13, 2009, the agent
        observed that Friendly Five Corp DBA Lincoln Cab did not have the
        equipment or capability to monitor for other users on frequency
        152.450 MHz.

     d. 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." During the
        monitoring by the agent from 10:00 A.M. until 12:00 P.M., Friendly
        Five Corp DBA Lincoln Cab Inc did not transmit its assigned call
