In the Matter of


Stantec Consulting Services, Inc.
                                               File No.:


Licensee of Stations WQAP330 and WQDH202
                                                         NOV No.:
Reno, Nevada


Released:  November 24, 2014
By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent Office, Western Region,
Enforcement Bureau:
* This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section
1.89 of the Commission's rules (Rules), to Stantec Consulting Services,
Inc. (Stantec), in Reno, Nevada, licensee of stations WQAP330 and WQDH202.
Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does
not preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted,
including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the
violation(s) noted herein.
* Stations WQAP330 and WQDH202 are authorized for nationwide temporary
fixed operation.  On November 13, 2014, in response to a complaint
of interference to 465.925 MHz, agents from the Enforcement Bureau's
Anchorage Office, using direction finding and signal strength techniques,
located an unattended temporary fixed transmitter operating in the
median of the New Seward Highway between Dowling Road and 76[th] Street
in Anchorage, Alaska.  The agents observed the following violation:
        ** 47 C.F.R. ยง 1.903(a): "General rule. 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, except as
        specified in paragraph (b) of this section."  At the time of the
        investigation, Stantec was operating on 465.925 MHz, however,
        neither the WQAP330 nor the WQDH202 license authorizes operation
        on 465.925 MHz.
* Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
amended, and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional information
concerning the violations and any remedial actions taken.  Therefore,
Stantec must submit a written statement concerning this matter within
twenty (20) days of release of this Notice.  The response (i) must fully
explain each violation, including all relevant surrounding facts and
circumstances, (ii) must contain a statement of the specific action(s)
taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must
include a time line for completion of any pending corrective action(s).
The response must be complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by
reference to other communications or answers to other notices.
* In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Stantec to
support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under
penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of Stantec
with personal knowledge of the representations provided in Stantec's
response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the information therein,
and confirming that all of the information requested by this Notice
which is in the licensee's possession, custody, control, or knowledge
has been produced.  To knowingly and willfully make any false statement
or conceal any material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by
fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
* 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
Anchorage Office
P.O. Box 231949
Anchorage, AK 99523-1949
* This Notice shall be sent to Stantec Consulting Services, Inc., at
its address of record.
* 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.
