BACKGROUND

2.
Section 301 of the Act5 and Section 1.903(a) of the Rules6 prohibit the use or operation of
any apparatus for the transmission of energy or communications or signals by wireless radio stations
except under and in accordance with an authorization granted by the Commission. Additionally, Section
1.949(a) of the Rules requires that licensees file renewal applications for wireless radio stations “no later
than the expiration date of the authorization for which renewal is sought, and no sooner than 90 days prior

Coyle, President/CEO, Monroe Medi Trans Incorporated (Sep. 5, 2012) (on file in EB-SED-12-00002427).

to expiration.”7 Absent a timely filed renewal application, a wireless radio station license automatically
terminates.8
3.
Commission records indicate that Monroe’s Private Land Mobile Radio Service
(Industrial/Business Pool) (PLMRS) station license, call sign WNXA527, automatically expired on
August 25, 2011, the expiration date of the station’s license, because Monroe did not timely file an
application to renew the license.9 On April 24, 2012, Monroe filed with the Wireless Bureau a request for
Special Temporary Authority (STA Request) to operate a PLMRS station until its application for a new
station license was granted.10 In its STA Request, Monroe acknowledged that it continued to operate the
station after the expiration of the station license.11 On May 14, 2012, Monroe filed an application for a
new PLMRS license, which was granted on August 22, 2012.12
4.
The Bureau’s Spectrum Enforcement Division issued a letter of inquiry (LOI) to Monroe
on September 5, 2012.13 The LOI directed Monroe to submit a sworn written response to a series of
questions relating to Monroe’s failure to file a license renewal application for station WNXA527 and its
continued operation of the station after the expiration of the station license. Monroe responded to the LOI
on October 17, 2012.14 In its LOI Response, Monroe stated that it took steps to secure operating authority
from the FCC “immediately” after discovering that the license for station WNXA527 had expired.15
Monroe also reported that it had implemented new procedures to ensure the timely filing of license

7 Id. § 1.949(a). If a licensee intending continued operations fails to file a timely renewal application, the
Commission nevertheless requires such licensee to seek operating authority. See Universal Licensing System Report
and Order
, 13 FCC Rcd at 21071, para. 98 (directing licensees that fail to file timely renewal applications to submit
a new application or, if necessary, a request for special temporary operating authority); Universal Licensing System
MO&O
, 14 FCC Rcd at 11485–86, para. 22 (permitting, in the alternative, the acceptance and processing of late
filed renewal applications under certain circumstances). In the Universal Licensing System MO&O, the
Commission expressly held that it could “initiate enforcement action against the licensee both for untimely filing
and unauthorized operation between the expiration of the license and the late renewal filing, including, if
appropriate, the imposition of fines or forfeitures for these rule violations.” Id.
8 47 C.F.R. § 1.955(a)(1).
9 On May 30, 2011, the Commission’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (Wireless Bureau) sent Monroe a
courtesy “renewal reminder” notice for station WNXA527, alerting Monroe that it was required to file a renewal
application for the station prior to the expiration of the station’s license if it planned to continue operation. See
Automated Renewal Reminder Notice from the FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau to Monroe Medi-Trans,
Incorporated, Reference No. 5164589 (May 30, 2011).
10 See FCC File No. 0005178557 (contains, inter alia, two subsequent amendments to the April 24, 2012 STA
Request, filed by Monroe on April 25, 2012 and April 26, 2012). The Wireless Bureau granted the STA Request on
April 27, 2012 under the call sign WQPF205. See FCC File No. 0005178557.

Division, FCC Enforcement Bureau (Oct. 17, 2012) (LOI Response) (on file in EB-SED-12-00002427).
15 Id. at 3. Monroe subsequently reported that it discovered that the license for station WNXA527 had expired on
April 23, 2012. See Letter from Timothy Coyle, Vice President, Monroe Medi-Trans, Inc., to Jennifer Burton,
