Kersey, CO )
Released: April 4, 2018
By the Regional Director, Region Three, Enforcement Bureau:
1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the 
Commission’s rules (Rules)
 to NE Colorado Cellular, Inc., dba Viaero Wireless (Viaero), licensee of 
FCC radio station WQUP435, Ft. Morgan, Colorado.  Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance 
of this Notice does not preclude the Federal Communications Commission’s (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. On February 13, 2018, Agents of the Bureau’s Denver Office investigated a complaint of 
radio frequency interference in the band 3650 to 3700 MHz, to Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (Anadarko), 
Washington D.C., Call Sign WQNR528, affecting Anadarko’s operations in the Wattenburg Gas Field.  
The Denver Office Agents identified the source of the interference to Viaero’s radio transmissions 
emanating from a tower, FCC Antenna Structure Registration #1278898, near Kersey, Colorado, and 
observed the following violations of the rules:
a. 47 CFR § 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 
b. 47 CFR § 90.1307(a):  “The 3650-3700 MHz band is licensed on the 
basis of non-exclusive nationwide licenses.  Non-exclusive 
nationwide licenses will serve as a prerequisite for registering 
individual fixed and base stations.  A licensee cannot operate a fixed 
 47 CFR § 1.89.
 47 CFR § 1.89(a).
or base station before registering it under its license and licensees 
must delete registrations for unused fixed and base stations.”
At the time of the investigation, Agents identified transmissions on 
the frequencies 3650 to 3690 MHz.  Viaero was determined to be the 
operator of the radio transmitters.  Viaero holds a nationwide license, 
WQUP435, that provides for operation in the band 3650 to 3700 
MHz.  However, it was determined that Viaero had not registered 
operation with the Commission from this site pursuant to the rules.  
Additionally, the transmissions were causing interference to 
Anadarko’s operations.
3. Pursuant to Section 403 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, Viaero 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.
4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Viaero to support its response to 
this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized 
officer of Viaero with personal knowledge of the representations provided in Viaero’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.
