    2. In response to an interference complaint from the State of Tennessee,
       an agent from the Enforcement Bureau's Atlanta Office located the

       Nashville, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 90.210 (b)(3): "For transmitters that are equipped with
        an audio low-pass filter, the power of any emission must be

        frequency removed from the assigned frequency by more than 250
        percent of the authorized bandwidth: At least 43 + 10 log (P) dB." On
