   Released: September 11, 2009

   By the District Director, Philadelphia 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 Mobile Radio Service Inc. ("Mobile
       Radio"), the operator of a radio servicing company and the licensee of
       Land Mobile Radio Service Station WPMW962 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

    2. On August 25, 2009, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Philadelphia
       Office, responding to a complaint of unauthorized transmissions on the
       frequency 45.36 MHz inspected the mobile radio station located at the
       Borough of West Mifflin, Public Works Department, in Pittsburgh,
       Pennsylvania. The Borough of West Mifflin reported that Mobile Radio
       Service Inc. programmed the radios. The agent contacted Mobile Radio
       and found the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 90.427(b) "Except for frequencies used in accordance with S:
   90.417, no person shall program into a transmitter frequencies for which
   the licensee using the transmitter is not authorized." Mobile Radio
   Service confirmed that it had programmed the frequency 45.36 MHz into the
   radios being used by the Borough of West Mifflin, Public Works Department
   without determining whether the authorization for WPRX383 included 45.36
   MHz as one of its authorized frequencies.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Mobile Radio
       Service Inc. 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 the licensee. 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:
