   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement
   Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to the County of Westchester
       ("Westchester"), licensee of land mobile radio station WPEM283, in
       White Plains, New York.

    2. On August 18, 2009, in response to a complaint, an agent from the
       Commission's New York Office investigated radio station WPEM283 and
       observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 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." On August 18, 2009, an agent determined that Westchester's
   transmitter on 155.310 MHz was transmitting an unmodulated carrier causing
   harmful interference to other licensed stations on the same frequency.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, the County of
       Westchester, 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 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 an
       individual authorized to respond on behalf of the licensee. 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:

       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
