   By the District Director, Denver 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 Carol Carroll (Carroll), licensee of
       aural studio transmitter link (STL) radio station WPTZ585 in
       Thermopolis, Wyoming.   Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the
       Commission's Rules, issuance of this NOV does not preclude the
       Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted, including issuing
       a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the violation noted
       herein.

    2. On June 6, 2012, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Denver Office
       inspected STL radio WPTZ585, located at Thermopolis, WY, and observed
       the following violation:

     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..." The license for station
        WPTZ585 specifies the coordinates 43DEG 38' 57.1" north latitude and
        108-o 12' 18.3" west longitude with a street address of 320 Senior
        Avenue, Thermopolis, Wyoming. At the time of the monitoring and
        inspection, the agent observed that Carroll was operating station
        WPTZ585 at the coordinates of 43DEG 38' 51" north latitude 108DEG 12'
        37" west longitude, with a street address of 420 Arapahoe Street,

        street address or at the coordinates listed on the WPTZ585 license.

    3. Pursuant to Section  308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, we seek
       additional information concerning the violations and any remedial
       actions taken.  Therefore, Carroll  must submit a written statement

       and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must include a time line for
       completion of any pending corrective action(s). The response must be
       complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by reference to other
       communications or answers to other notices.
