   Released: July 8, 2011

   By the Resident Agent, Buffalo 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 the City School District of Oswego
       (Oswego"), the licensee of Private Land Mobile Station WQLK292 in
       Oswego, New York.

    2. On June 28, 2011, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Buffalo Office
       investigated Station WQLK292 in Oswego, New York and observed the
       following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 90.403(c): "Except for stations that have been granted
        exclusive channels under this part and that are classified as
        commercial mobile radio service providers pursuant to Part 20 of this
        chapter, each licensee must restrict all transmissions to the minimum
        practical transmission time and must employ an efficient operating
        procedure designed to maximize the utilization of the spectrum."
        During the investigation, the agent found that the station
        transmitted a steady carrier on 156.0 MHz for at least three hours.

     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." The
        agent monitored  Station WQLK292 for several hours and at no time was
        the call sign identification heard.

    3. Pursuant to section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Oswego 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 Oswego. All
       replies and documentation sent in response to this Notice should be
