                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: January  11, 2012

   By the District Director, San Diego 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 Yellow Cab of Greater Orange
       County, ("Yellow Cab") licensee of radio station KMA699, Anaheim, CA.

    2. On December 29, 2011, in response to a radio interference complaint,
       an agent from the Enforcement Bureau's San Diego Office monitored the
       frequency 452.150 MHz, and used direction finding techniques to locate
       the station KMA699, which was found to be located at the top of
       Santiago Peak in the Santa Ana Mountains near Corona, CA. The agent
       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." At
        the time of the investigation, the agent observed that KMA699 was
        transmitting on 452.150 MHz nearly continuously.

     b. 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, the agent monitored
        KMA699 and observed a digitally modulated continuous signal, on
        452.150 MHz, a frequency shared with other licensees in the Los
        Angeles and San Diego areas.

     c. 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." At
        the time of the investigation, agents monitored the signal and heard
        a Morse code signal, but it was not a call sign identifying emission.

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

   San Diego, CA 92111

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Yellow Cab of Greater Orange County 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
