   Released: January 10, 2008

   By the District Director, Seattle Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Stita Taxi, licensee of station
       WPFM466 in Seattle, Washington.

    2. Stita Taxi is authorized to use 452.2250 MHz for FM Voice emissions
       (designated 20K0F3E) as indicated on the WPFM466 license granted to
       Stita Taxi on October 2, 2007.

    3. On December 13, 2007, in response to a complaint of interference, an
       agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Seattle District Office using a
       mobile direction-finding vehicle monitored frequency 452.2250 MHz, and
       observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 90.403(e): "Licensees shall take reasonable precautions
        to avoid causing 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 investigation, the Seattle agent,
        after tracking the signal to 1311 Massachusetts Ave., Seattle,
        Washington, observed continuous digital transmissions on the
        frequency of 452.2250 MHz. After identifying the signal as WPFM466,
        the service technician for the transmitter turned off the system and
        the interference ceased.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 1.903(a): "Stations in the wireless Radio Service 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 investigation, the agent determined that
        WPFM466 was transmitting data on 452.2250 MHz. WPFM466 is only
        authorized for voice transmissions.

    4. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Stita Taxi must submit a
       written statement concerning this matter within 10 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
