                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: November 22, 2011

   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 South Williamsport Borough, the
       licensee of Private Land Mobile Station WPJI600 in Williamsport,

    2. On October 12, 2011, agents inspected the digital telemetry system
       that South Williamsport Borough was operating at the Central Waste
       Water Treatment Plant in Williamsport, Pennsylvania and observed the
       following violations:

     a. 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." At the
        time of inspection, South Williamsport Borough was operating the
        digital telemetry system on an unauthorized frequency and from an
        unauthorized location.

     b. 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 digital telemetry system was generating multiple
        drifting spurious emissions between 400 MHz and 500 MHz that exceed
        the required emission mask.

    3. Pursuant to section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, South
       Williamsport Borough 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 South Williamsport Borough. 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
