                       NOTICE OF VIOLATION

                                      Released:  October 25, 2005

By the Resident Agent, Anchorage 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 Roy 
     C. Brunhart, licensee of aircraft radio station N3777Z.

  2.      On September  1, 2005,  an  agent of  the  Commission's 
     Anchorage Resident Agent Office tracked an active  Emergency 
     Locator  Transmitter  (ELT)   to  Brunhart's  residence   in 
     Anchorage, Alaska.  The ELT was subsequently deactivated  by 
     the owner  in  the  presence  of the  agent.   This  ELT  is 
     assigned to aircraft radio station N3777Z.

       47  C.F.R.   87.193:  ``Transmissions  by  emergency 
       locator  transmitters  (ELTs)  are  intended  to   be 
       actuated  manually  or  automatically  and   operated 
       automatically as  part of an  aircraft or a  survival 
       craft  station  as   a  locating  aid  for   survival 
       purposes.''   The  ELT was  apparently  activated  by 
       improper storage or handling.

  3.      Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 
     1934, as amended,2 and Section 1.89 of the Commission's

     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 Roy C. Brunhart.  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:
