   Released: June 30, 2010

   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 AA Dispatch, LLC, licensee of radio
       station WQBY764, in Everett, Washington.

    2. On June 10, 2010, in response to complaints,  an agent of the
       Enforcement Bureau's Seattle Office monitored radio station WQBY764
       located in Everett, Washington, and a second transmitter site located
       in Issaquah, Washington, and observed the following violations:

     a. 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." At the time of the investigation, the agent observed
        that the WQBY764 transmitter in Issaquah, Washington, was emitting a
        continuous signal on 463.450 MHz. There was no evidence of monitoring
        for communications in progress.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 90.233(a): "Licensees employing non-voice communications
        are not relieved of their responsibility to cooperate in the shared
        use of land mobile radio channels." At the time of the investigation,
        AA Dispatch, LLC, was not operating in a manner that ensured share
        use of the licensed channels, given the continuous signal it was
        emitting on 463.450 MHz.

       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, AA Dispatch, LLC,

       must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or officer of the
       AA Dispatch, LLC. All replies and documentation sent in response to
