    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Greenburgh Eleven Union Free School
       ("Greenburgh"), licensee of private land mobile station WQFI984 in

    2. On October 6, 2008, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       monitored and inspected radio station WQFI984 located at Bethune
       Building, 1 Echo Hill, Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522, and observed the
       following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: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 investigation, it was determined that (1)
        the base station was operating on a frequency of 157.665 MHz, whereas
        the license for station WQFI984 specifies operation for the base
        station on a frequency of 152.405 MHz and (2) the transmitter was
        operating with an output power in excess of the power authorized in
        its station license with an effective radiated power ("ERP") in
        excess of the ERP authorized in its station license.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 90.425(a): "Except as provided for in paragraphs (d) and
        (e) of this section, each station or system shall be identified by
        the transmission of the assigned call sign during each transmission
        or exchange of transmissions, or once each 15 minutes (30 minutes in
        the Public Safety Pool) during periods of continuous operation. The
        call sign shall be transmitted by voice in the English language or by
        International Morse Code in accordance with paragraph (b) of this
        section." On October 6, 2008, between 2:00 p.m. and 2:35 p.m.,
        Greenburgh did not transmit its call sign identification WQFI984 on
        the frequency 157.665 MHz.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Greenburgh must
       submit a written statement concerning this matter within twenty (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

       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
