                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

                                                     Released: April 22, 2011

   By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent Office, Western Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Providence Alaska Medical Center
       ("Providence"), licensee of private land mobile radio station, WPUQ810
       in Anchorage, Alaska.

    2. On March 17, 2011, in response to a complaint, an agent from the
       Anchorage Resident Agent Office, investigated the WPUQ810 operations
       at 1700 Hillcrest Drive, Anchorage, Alaska, and observed the following

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 90.210(b)(3): "Except as indicated elsewhere in this
        part, transmitters used in the radio services governed by this part
        must comply with the emission masks outlined in the section. ...[T]he
        power of any emission must be attenuated below the unmodulated
        carrier output power (P) ... On any frequency removed from the center
        of the authorized bandwidth by more than 250 percent of the
        authorized bandwidth: At least 43 + 10 log(P) dB." At the time of the
        investigation, the Anchorage agent observed spurious emissions
        centered around 72.06 MHz that exceeded the required emission mask.

     b. 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." Pursuant
        to the WPUQ810 authorization, operation on 72.06 MHz is limited to
        mobile operations with an output power of one watt. At the time of
        the investigation, the agent observed that Providence was operating
        on 72.06 MHz at a fixed location and with an output power in excess
        of one watt.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Providence Alaska
       Medical Center, 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 a
       principal or officer of Providence Alaska Medical Center. 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:
