       monitored transmissions from station KTK630 on the frequency 154.785
       MHz and observed the following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 1.903(a): "Stations in the Wireless Radio Services must
        be used and operated only in accordance with the rules applicable to
        their particular service as set forth in this title and with a valid
        authorization granted by the Commission under the provisions of this
        part, except as specified in paragraph (b) of this section." Newton

        154.785 MHz. The F3E class of emission does not authorize digital
        data transmissions.

       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, County of Newton,
       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.
