Los Angeles, California, and observed the following violations:
a. 47 C.F.R. § 90.403(c): “Except for stations that have been granted exclusive

restrict all transmissions to the minimum practical transmission time and 
must employ an efficient operating procedure designed to maximize the 
utilization of the spectrum.” At the time of the investigation, agents observed 
that WQIG614 was transmitting on 451.7875 MHz nearly continuously for 
over 20 minutes.
