   By the Resident Agent, Honolulu Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Eric Weber, licensee of maritime
       radio station HA4086F.

    2. On April 6, 2011, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Honolulu Office
       located an active EPIRB at the residence of 214 Kuliouou Road in
       Honolulu, and observed the following violations:

        a. 47 C.F.R. S: 80.89(a): "Stations must not engage in superfluous
           radiocommunication." Transmissions by EPIRBs are intended to be
           actuated manually or automatically and operated automatically as
           part of a ship or a survival craft station as a locating aid for
           survival purposes. The agent located a falsely activated Class B
           Guest 630A EPIRB inside the back seat of a vehicle parked at the
           residence next to a Hawaii state registered boat, HA4086F.

        b. 47 C.F.R. S: 80.1055: "Operation of Class B EPIRB stations shall
           be prohibited after December 31, 2006." The EPIRB that was falsely
           activated may not be used on commercial or recreational
           watercraft, as it is a Class B device.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Eric Weber must
       submit a written statement concerning this matter within 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 Eric Weber, or his authorized
       representative. 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

   Honolulu Office

   P.O. Box 971030

   Waipahu, Hawaii 96797-1030

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Eric Weber at his 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.
