   By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent Office, Western Region,

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Baptist Mid-Mission, licensee of

    2. On May 29, 2007, in response to a complaint, an agent of the

       Illiamna Airport, Illiamna, Alaska and observed the following

   47 C.F.R. S 87.193: "Transmissions by emergency locator transmitters
   (ELT's) are intended to be actuated manually or automatically and operated
   automatically as part of an aircraft or a survival craft station as a

   faulty electronics transmitting a continuous un-modulated carrier.
