     Adopted:   February 13, 2001       Released:   February  15, 

2001

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

     1.  This Memorandum Opinion and Order (``Order'') rescinds a 
proposed monetary forfeiture  issued to AT&T  Wireless PCS,  Inc. 
(``AT&T'') in  the amount  of $10,000  for apparent  willful  and 
repeated violations of  Section 301 of the Communications Act  of 
1934, as  amended (``the  Act'').1  The  proposed forfeiture  was 
assessed for AT&T's  alleged operation of  a PCS station  without 
authorization from  a site  in Humacao,  Puerto Rico.   Based  on 
AT&T's response, it  is clear  that AT&T  did not  engage in  the 
operation at  issue  in  the Notice  of  Apparent  Liability  for 
Forfeiture.

     2.  Accordingly, IT IS  ORDERED, pursuant to Section  504(b) 
of the Act2  and Sections 0.111,  0.311 and 1.80  of the  Rules,3 
that the Notice  of Apparent Liability  for Forfeiture issued  to 
AT&T IS RESCINDED.

     3.  IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that,  a copy of this Order  shall 

be  sent  certified  mail,  return  receipt  requested,  to  AT&T 

Wireless PCS,  Inc., 1150  Connecticut Avenue,  N.W., 4th  Floor, 

Washington, D.C. 20036.
