     pursuant to Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules,1 to 
     North Star Engineering & Surveying, licensee of radio 
     station WPUJ396.

  2.      On September 20, 2004, a field agent from the 
     Commission's Denver Office monitored and inspected radio 
     station WPUJ396, operating on the frequency of 461.100 MHz, 
     in Pueblo, Colorado, and observed the following violation:

       a. 47 C.F.R.  90.403(e):  "Licensees shall take

          frequency for communications in progress and other such 
          measures as may be necessary to minimize the potential 
          for causing interference."  Monitoring by the field

          traffic by other licensees.
