NOTICE OF VIOLATION
Released:  April 7, 2016
By the Acting District Director, Los Angeles Office, Region 3, Enforcement Bureau:
1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the 
Commission’s rules (Rules),
1
to Public Safety Technologies, Inc., licensee of radio station WQJM334 in 
West Covina, California. Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does not 
preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent 
Liability for Forfeiture for the violation(s) noted herein.

2. On September 24, 2015, in response to a complaint of interference, an agent of the 
Enforcement Bureau’s Los Angeles Office monitored radio station WQJM334 located on San Jose Hill in 
West Covina, California and observed the following violations:
a. 47 C.F.R. § 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 WQJM334 was operating a station which transmitted 
continuously on 451.350 MHz from San Jose Hill in West Covina, 
California, and with Station Class “FB7” which does not authorize exclusive 
use of the channel.

b. 47 C.F.R. § 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 observed that WQJM334 was operating a 
station which transmitted continuously on 451.350 MHz, providing no 
opportunities for other users to share this frequency and causing harmful 
interference with another licensee in the West Covina area.  
c. 47 C.F.R. § 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, the agent 
monitored the WQJM334 for several hours and at no time was call sign 
identification heard. 
3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
3
and Section 1.89 of 
the Commission's Rules, we seek additional information concerning the violations and any 
remedial actions taken. Therefore, Public Safety Technologies, Inc., must submit a written
