     pursuant to  Section 1.89  of  the Commission's  Rules,1  to 
     Fernandez, Manuel, licensee of radio station WNMX592.

  2.      On October 12, 2004, an  agent of the Commission's  New 
     York Office inspected radio station, WNMX592, located at 390 
     Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn,  NY 11211,  and observed  the 
     following violation:

     2.a.      47  C.F.R.  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 under 
               the  provisions  of  this  part.''   In  this 
               connection,  licensees  shall  exercise  such 
               direction and control as  to assure that  the 
               transmitter   is   being   operated   in    a 
               permissible   manner.    The   station    was 
               operating with  an  ERP  (effective  radiated 
               power) of 300 watts which is in excess of the 
               power stated in the station license. 

     2.b.      47 C.F.R.    90.425(a): ``Each  station  and 
               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.   The  call 
               sign shall  be transmitted  by voice  in  the 
               English language  or by  International  Morse 
               Code in accordance with paragraph (b) of this 
               section.''   Fernandez,   Manuel  failed   to 
               identify  its  radio  station  once  each  15 
               minutes by the transmission of the call sign, 

  3.      Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 
     1934, as  amended,2 and  Section  1.89 of  the  Commission's 
     Rules, Fernandez,  Manuel must  submit a  written  statement 
     concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of release of

     violation,  must  contain  a   statement  of  the   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.
