    2. On December 18, 2009, in response to an interference complaint from
       the United States Coast Guard, agents of the Commission's Philadelphia
       Office used direction finding techniques to locate the source of
       interference on the frequency 157.175 MHz. The agents inspected the
       radio equipment aboard vessel LYNNE FRINK and observed the following
       violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 80.89(a): "Stations must not engage in superfluous
   radio-communication." The agents determined that a VHF transmitter aboard
   the LYNNE FRINK was transmitting a continuous unmodulated carrier on
   157.175 MHz (VHF Marine Channel 83a).

    3. Pursuant to Sections 308(b) and 403 of the Communications Act of 1934,
       as amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, National
       Response Corporation must submit a written statement concerning this
       matter within twenty (20) days of release of this Notice. The response

       specific action(s) taken to correct each violation and preclude
       recurrence, and should include a time line for completion of pending

       signed by a principal or officer of National Response Corporation. All
