    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section

       private land mobile station KTT48, Stockton, California.

    2. On January 8, 2008, in response to a complaint, an agent of the
       Enforcement Bureau's San Francisco Office inspected station KTT48,
       operated by Union Pacific Railroad's subsidiary, Central California
       Traction Company ("CCTC"), located at the Port of Stockton, in
       Stockton, California, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C. F. R. S: Section 1.903(a): "Stations in the Wireless Radio
        Services must be used and operated only in accordance with the rules
        applicable to their particular service as set forth in this title and
        with a valid authorization granted by the Commission under the
        provisions of this part." At the time of the inspection, the license
        for station KTT48 did not authorize use of 160.785 MHz.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: Section 90.403(e): "Licensees shall take reasonable
        precautions to avoid causing harmful interference. This includes
        monitoring the transmitting frequency for communications in progress
        and such other measures as may be necessary to minimize the potential
        for causing interference." At the time of the inspection, CCTC was
        not monitoring the transmitting frequency.

     c. 47 C.F.R. S: Section 90.429(c): "The location of the control point
        will be specified in the station license and will be assumed to be
        the same as that of the transmitting equipment unless an application
        for a different location has been approved by the Commission." At the
        time of the inspection, the control point had been moved from its
        original authorization's location 3 at Sanquinetti and Cherokee Lane,
        Stockton, California to, Port Road A at the Port of Stockton,
        Stockton, California.

   and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Union Pacific Railroad, must
   submit a written statement concerning this matter within 20 days of
   release of this Notice. The response must fully explain each violation,
