   By the Acting District Director, New York 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 East Hampton Town Fire District Training
       Facility (East Hampton), the licensee of Land Mobile Station WQAW224
       in East Hampton, New York.

    2. On June 12, 2012, in response to a complaint from a public safety
       entity, an agent of the Commission's New York Office inspected Station
       WQAW224 located in East Hampton, New York and observed the following
       violation:

   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." FCC agents found that East Hampton's 453.425 MHz
   transmitter was generating spurious emissions on 406.160 MHz that were
   causing harmful interference to a public safety entity's communications
   system.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's rules, East Hampton Town
       Fire District Training Facility 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 the licensee. 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:

       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
