* On November 18, 2014, in response to a radio frequency interference

U.H.F. amplifier card in the SOLiD Technologies  Distributed Antenna
System (DAS) remote hub in the Evergreen Corporate Plaza Building,
205400 NW Evergreen Parkway, Hillsboro, Oregon 97124,  and observed the
following violation:
  + 47 C.F.R. § 1.903(a):  "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." On November

  was transmitting spurious emissions and was causing interference.

  harmful interference are expected to cooperate and resolve this

  interference has ceased.
