 issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the violation
 noted herein.

 On January 11, 2017, in response to a complaint of interference, an
 agent of the Enforcement Bureau's New York Office investigated and
 determined that the source of the interference was a signal booster,
 or Bi-Directional Amplifier (BDA), EMR Corp. Model 850622.  The BDA was
 operated as part of station WQKP916 and was located at 820 Washington
 Street, New York, New York.   The agent observed the following violation:

	    47 C.F.R. ยง 90.219(e)(3) of the Rules:  "Spurious emissions
	    from a signal booster must not exceed -13 dBm within any 100
	    kHz measurement bandwidth."  At the time of the investigation,
	    The Friends of the High Line's booster was emitting a spurious
	    signal which drifted between 467.4000 and 467.7000 MHz and
	    exceeded the -13 dBm limit.

 action(s) taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and

 action(s).  The response must be complete in itself and must not be
 abbreviated by reference to other communications or answers to other

 In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct The Friends
 of the High Line to support its response to this Notice with an
 affidavit or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by
 an authorized officer of The Friends of the High Line with personal
