                    NOTICE OF VIOLATION

                                   Released Date: August 8, 

By the District Director, Los Angeles Office, Enforcement 

       1.  This is an Official Notice of Violation (Notice) 
         issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of
the Commissions Rules1, to Repeater Users Group, licensee 
of GMRS radio station KAD3271.   

         2.    On February 10, 2003, the Commission's Los 
            Angeles Office received information that a 
            grandfathered GMRS licensee had renewed an 
            existing GMRS system license after making a 
            major modification to the licensee's GMRS 
            system.  An agent of the Commission's Los 
            Angeles Office monitored the radio frequency 
            462.675 MHz and heard numerous stations 
            identifying with call sign KAD3271. 

         3.     On April 1, 2003, an agent attempted to 
            inspect the radio equipment of GMRS radio 
            station KAD3271 located at 915 N. Euclid, 
            Anaheim CA.   The resident advised the agent 
            that for the last nine years no radio equipment 
            had been at that location.  The following 
            violations were observed:

           a.  47 C.F.R.  95.5(b): ``A non-individual (an 
             entity other than an individual) is 
             ineligible to obtain a new GMRS system 
             license or make a major modification to an 
             existing GMRS system license (see  1.929 of 
             this chapter).''  Major modifications to a 
             GMRS system are defined in 47 C.F.R. 
             1.929(c)(4) and on line 4 under the 
             ``Certification Statements for GMRS 
             Applicants'' on FCC Form 605 as: a change in 
             frequency or channel pairs, type of emission, 
             antenna height, location of fixed 
             transmitters, number of mobile units, area of 
             mobile operation, or increase in power.  A 
             search of Commission records revealed that 
             the Repeater Users Group, GMRS radio station  
             KAD3271, is authorized only one fixed 
             transmitter location at 915 N. Euclid, 
             Anaheim, CA.   At the time of the inspection 
             the Repeater Users Group was not operating 
             any fixed transmitters at 915 N Euclid, in 
             Anaheim, CA.
           b.  47 C.F.R. 1.947(a): ``All major 
             modifications, as defined in  1.929 of this 
             part, require prior Commission approval.  
             Applications for major modifications also 
             shall be treated as new applications for 
             determinations of filing date, Public Notice, 
             and petition to deny purposes.''  A Search of 
             Commission records revealed that a 
             notification of a change in location of the 
             Repeater Users Group, GMRS radio station 
             KAD3271, fixed transmitter had not been 
             received by the Commission. 

           c.  47 C.F.R.  95.5(c): `` A GMRS system 
             licensed to a non-individual before July 31, 
             1987, is eligible to renew that license and 
             all subsequent licenses based upon it if: (3) 
             The licensee has not been granted a major 
             modification to its GMRS system.''  According 
             to Commission records, Repeater Users Group 
             was granted a renewal of its GMRS radio 
             station license KAD3271 on July 18, 2002.  
             However, Repeater Users Group failed to 
             notify the Commission of their location 

           d.  47 C.F.R. 1.65(a): ``Each applicant is 
             responsible for the continuing accuracy and 
             completeness of information furnished in a 
             pending application or in Commission 
             proceedings involving a pending 
             application...''  The signator for the 
             Repeater User Group by signing FCC Form 605 
             certified that no major modifications to the 
             Repeater Users Group GMRS radio system, as 
             stated in item 4 of the ``Certification 
             Statements for GMRS Applicants,'' had been 
             implemented which was substantially 
             inaccurate at the time of the submission of 
             the application for renewal on July 12, 2002.  

4.    Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act 
of 1934, as amended,2 and Section 1.89 of the Commission's 
Rules, Repeater Users Group, must submit a written 
statement concerning this matter within 20 days of the 
release of this Notice.  The response must fully explain 
each violation, must contain a statement of 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
