the absence of a timely filed renewal application, a wireless radio station license automatically
terminates.8
3.
Bridgewater's license for PLMRS Industrial/Business Pool station WPSE416
automatically expired on March 27, 2011, the expiration date of the station license, because Bridgewater
did not timely file an application for the renewal of that license.9 On April 5, 2011, Bridgewater filed an
application to renew the license for station WPSE416, along with a request for a waiver of Section 1.949
of the Rules to allow the late filing of its renewal application.10 On May 20, 2011, the Wireless Bureau
returned the WPSE416 renewal application because Bridgewater failed to file the required notification of
construction for the station.11 In the Notice of Return, Bridgewater was instructed to file within 60 days
the required notification of construction for station WPSE416 and an associated amendment to its renewal
application.12 Bridgewater filed the required notification of construction on June 7, 2011.13 However,
Bridgewater did not submit an amendment to its renewal application, as required by the Return Notice,
resulting in the dismissal of its renewal application on August 9, 2011.14 On March 1, 2012, Bridgewater
filed a request for Special Temporary Authority to operate a PLMRS station, which was granted on March
2, 2012 under call sign WQOY340.15
4.
On October 12, 2012, the Bureau issued a letter of inquiry (LOI) to Bridgewater.16 The
LOI directed Bridgewater to submit a sworn written response to a series of questions relating to
Bridgewater's failure to file a license renewal application for station WPSE416 and its continued
operation of the station after the expiration of the station license. Bridgewater responded to the LOI on
November 6, 2012.17 In its LOI Response, Bridgewater stated that it discovered on April 5, 2011that the
application to renew the WPSE416 station license had not been timely filed, and that it "immediately"
contacted Wireless Bureau staff for assistance.18 The Bureau and Bridgewater executed a tolling


8 47 C.F.R. 1.955(a)(1).
9 On January 3, 2011, the Commission's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (Wireless Bureau) sent Bridgewater
a courtesy "renewal reminder" notice for station WPSE416, alerting Bridgewater that it was required to file renewal
applications for the station prior to the expiration of the station's license if it planned to continue operation. See
Automated Renewal Reminder Letters from the FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau to Bridgewater
Retirement Community, Reference No. 5083342 (Jan. 3, 2011).
10 See FCC File No. 0004679095 (Apr. 5, 2011). In its waiver request, Bridgewater disclosed that it continued to
operate the station after the expiration of the station license. See id., Attachment.

date at the top of this letter, your application will be Dismissed.").
