Studio to Transmitter Link (STL) station WLI700, Las Vegas, Nevada.  Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the 
Commission’s rules, issuance of this Notice does not preclude the Commission’s Enforcement Bureau 
(Bureau) from further action if warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture 
for the violation(s) noted herein.
2. From October 23 to 24, 2017, Agents from the Bureau’s Los Angeles and San Francisco 
Offices investigated a complaint from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that a spurious 
emission on 118.75 MHz, which was modulated with the emissions from FM Broadcast station KFRH, 
Las Vegas, Nevada (also licensed to Silver State), was causing interference to aircraft and controllers at 
the Las Vegas Nevada McCarren airport.  During their investigation, the Agents observed the following 
violation of the Commission’s rules:
a. 47 CFR § 74.861(g): “Low power auxiliary stations shall be operated so that 
no harmful interference is caused to any other class of station operating in 
accordance with Commission's rules and regulations and with the Table of 
Frequency Allocations in part 2 thereof.” Agents from the Bureau’s Los 
Angeles and San Francisco Offices used direction finding techniques and 
determined that the spurious signal on 118.75 MHz was emanating from 
station WLI700, transmitting from 6725 Via Austi Parkway, Las Vegas, 
Nevada and was the source of the interference reported by the FAA.
 47 CFR § 1.89.

remedial actions taken.  Therefore, Silver State 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,

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.
4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Commission’s rules, we direct Silver State to
