                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: December 1, 2009

   By the District Director, Northeast Region, Philadelphia Office,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Schuylkill Mobile Fone, Inc.
       ("Schuylkill Mobile"), licensee of Public Radio Service Station KGA589
       in Joliett, Pennsylvania.

    2. On November 6, 2009, in response to an interference complaint from the
       Bureau of State Reservation Maintenance ("State Reservation"),  agents
       of the FCC's Philadelphia Office monitored radio station KGA589
       located in Joliett, Pennsylvania, and observed the following

   47 C.F.R. S: 22.359(a): "The power of any emission outside of the
   authorized operating frequency ranges must be attenuated below the
   transmitting power (P) by a factor of at least 43 + 10 log (P) dB." On
   November 6, 2009, FCC agents from the Philadelphia Office found that
   Schuylkill Mobile's 152.18 MHz paging transmitter was generating a
   spurious emission on 165.0875 MHz that exceeded the emission mask limit by
   56.15 dB. The Philadelphia Office found that the spurious emission on
   165.0875 MHz was causing harmful interference to the State Reservation's
   repeater system.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Schuylkill Mobile Fone,
       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:

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Schuylkill Mobile Fone, Inc. 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.

   47 C.F.R. S: 1.89.

   The FCC measured the level of the spurious emission to be 51.40 dBuV/m.
   The level of the fundamental was measured to be 63.99 dBuV/m; a difference
   of 12.59 dB. Based on the transmitter output power of 375 Watts, the
   spurious emission should be attenuated at least 68.74 dB below the
   authorized transmitting power.

   47 U.S.C. S: 403.

   P.L. 93-579, 5 U.S.C. S: 552a(e)(3).
