                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 4, 2012

   By the Acting District Director, Philadelphia 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 Crozer-Keystone Healthcare
       (Crozer-Keystone), the licensee of Private Land Mobile Station WQNH394
       in Upland, Pennsylvania.

    2. On March 15, 2012, in response to a complaint from the United States
       Coast Guard (USCG), agents of the Commission's Philadelphia Office
       inspected Station WQNH394 located in Upland, Pennsylvania 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." FCC agents found that Crozer-Keystone's 154.625 MHz
        paging transmitter was generating a spurious emission on 157.075 MHz
        that was causing harmful interference to the USCG's radio
        communications system.

     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."
        Between 11:55 a.m. and 1:01 p.m., agents observed that Station
        WQNH394 did not transmit its call sign identification on the
        frequency 154.625 MHz.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's rules, Crozer-Keystone
       Healthcare 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 a
       principal or officer 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:

   Federal Communications Commission

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Crozer-Keystone Healthcare at its address
       of record.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       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
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.

   47 C.F.R. S: 1.89.

   Based on the transmitter output power of 90 Watts, the spurious emission
   should be attenuated at least 62.54 dB below the authorized transmitting
   power. The FCC measured the level of the spurious emission to be -95.0 dB.
   The level of the fundamental was measured to be -25.0 dB; a difference of
   70.0 dB, in compliance with Section 22.359(a) of the Commission's Rules.

   47 U.S.C. S: 308(b).
