                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 25, 2007

   By the District Director, Columbia Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Yellow Cab Co. of DC Inc. ("Yellow
       Cab"), licensee of radio station KGH203 in Washington, D.C.

    2. On May 10, 2007, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's  Columbia
       Office inspected radio station KGH203  at 2712 and 3201 Wisconsin
       Avenue, N. W. Washington, D.C., and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 1.903(b): "The holding of an authorization does not
        create any rights beyond the terms, conditions and period specified
        in the authorization." At the inspection on May 10, 2007, the agent
        observed that:

   (1) Yellow Cab operated a transmitter on 451.950 MHz from 2712 Wisconsin
   Avenue, NW, which is identified as "Location 1" on the station's license.
   The license for station KGH203, however, authorizes Yellow Cab to operate
   from Location 1 on 452.250 MHz and 452.300 MHz frequency; and

   (2) Yellow Cab operates a transmitter at 3201 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, which
   is identified in its license as "Location 2." The coordinates associated
   with that address (approximately 38-55-58 N latitude 077-04-21 W
   longitude) do not match the coordinates indicated in the station's license
   for Location 2 (38-56-35.1 N latitude 077-04-35.4 W longitude). Either the
   street address or coordinates identified as Location 2 in the license are
   in error and must be corrected.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 90.425(a) "Stations licensed under this part . . . shall
        be identified by the transmission of the assigned call sign during
        each transmission or exchange of transmissions, or once each 15
        minutes . . . during periods of continuous operation." On May 9,
        2007, the agent monitored the station from 10:20 AM until 1:20 PM and
        observed that Yellow Cab attempted to transmit its call sign in Morse
        code three times. In each instance, the agent observed that only the
        first character of the call sign was transmitted before being blocked
        by the digital signal.

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

   Federal Communications Commission

   Columbia Field Office

   9200 Farm House Lane

   Columbia, MD 21046

    4. This Notice shall be sent to by Certified Mail/Return Receipt
       Requested and regular mail to Yellow Cab at its address of record.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
