                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: August 16, 2010

   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 Lloyd Hoff Holding Corp dba
       Repeaters ("Lloyd Hoff"), the licensee of radio station WQAR631 in
       Bruceton Mills, West Virginia.

    2. On June 17, 2010, in response to a complaint from Fossman Corp., the
       licensee of station WZJ890, an agent of the Commission's Philadelphia
       Office monitored the transmissions on 461.475 MHz from station WQAR631
       located in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia and observed the following
       violations:

     a. 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." At the time of the investigation, station WQAR631 was
        transmitting a digitally modulated signal on 461.475 MHz. There was
        no evidence that the station was monitoring for communications in
        progress, which created the potential for interference and prevented
        the effective sharing of the frequency with other licensed users.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 90.425(a): "Except as provided for in paragraphs (d) and
        (e) of this section, each station or system shall be identified by
        the transmission of the assigned call sign during each transmission
        or exchange of transmissions, or once each 15 minutes (30 minutes in
        the Public Safety Pool) during periods of continuous operation."
        Between 2:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on July 20, 2010, the agent observed
        that station WQAR631 did not transmit its call sign identification on
        the frequency 461.475 MHz.

     c. 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." Lloyd
        Hoff was transmitting digital emissions on the frequency 461.475 MHz.
        The license for station WQAR631 only authorizes FM analog telephony
        emissions (F3E) on the frequency 461.475 MHz. The F3E class of
        emission does not authorize digital transmissions.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Lloyd Hoff 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:

   Federal Communications Commission

   Philadelphia Office

   One Oxford Valley Building, Suite 404

   2300 East Lincoln Highway

   Langhorne, Pennsylvania 19047

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Lloyd Hoff 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.
