                       NOTICE OF VIOLATION

                                             Released:  June 6, 

By the Resident Agent, Portland Resident Agent Office, Western 
Region, Enforcement Bureau:

  1.      This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued 
     pursuant to Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules,1 to 
     Minister and Glaeser Surveying Inc., licensee of radio 
     station WPIE219.

  2.      On April 6, 2005, the Commission's Portland Resident 
     Agent Office received a complaint that a surveying company 
     was causing interference to a land mobile repeater located 
     in Rainier, Oregon.  An agent from the Portland Office 
     monitored and inspected radio station WPIE219 located in 
     Kalama, Washington, operating on the frequency 462.125 MHz  
     and observed the following violation:

       a. 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 other such measures as may be 
          necessary to minimize the potential for causing 
          interference."  Monitoring by the field agent 
          revealed that the licensee made data transmissions 
          without apparent regard for co-channel traffic by 
          other licensees.

  3.      Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 
     1934, as amended,2 and Section 1.89 of the Commission's 
     Rules, Minister and Glaeser Surveying Inc. must submit a 
     written statement concerning this matter within 20 days of 
     release of this Notice.  The response must fully explain 
     each 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. 
     specified above, and mailed to the following address:
