* On January 16, 2015, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Honolulu

assistance in locating interference to their 406 MHz Cospas-Sarsat
Satellite System.  The agent located and inspected the 406 MHz EPIRB
associated with the fishing vessel Mana-Loa, located at Pier 17 in the
Honolulu Harbor, and observed the following violation:

	** 47 C.F.R. ยง 80.89(a): "Stations must not engage in superfluous

	vessel Mana-Loa, was transmitting an unmodulated carrier on
	406.0275 MHz every 10 seconds.

The response must be complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by

* In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Two Bulls to

under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by Two Bulls, verifying
the truth and accuracy of the information therein, and confirming
