                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: September 1, 2010

   By the District Director, Columbia 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 Blue Bird Cab Company Inc.[Author
       ID1: at Fri Aug 20 16:49:00 2010 ], the licensee of radio station
       KGA943 in Marlow Heights, Maryland.

    2. On August 19, 2010, in response to a complaint from another private
       land mobile licensee, an agent of the Commission's Columbia Office
       monitored the transmissions on 152.390 MHz from station KGA943 located
       in Marlow Heights, Maryland 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 KGA943 was
        transmitting a digitally modulated signal on 152.390 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 9:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on August 19, 2010, the agent
        observed that station KGA943 did not transmit its call sign
        identification on the frequency 152.390 MHz.

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

   Federal Communications Commission

   Columbia Office

   9200 Farm House Lane

   Columbia, Maryland 21046

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Blue Bird Cab Company 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.
