NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABILITY FOR FORFEITURE
Adopted: July 31, 2012 Released: July 31, 2012
By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:
1. In this Notice ofApparent Liability for Forfeiture (NAL), we find Emigrant Storage LLC
(Emigrant), former licensee of Private Land Mobile Radio Service (PLMRS) station WPKM212, Reno,
Nevada, apparently liable for a forfeiture in the amount of twenty thousand dollars ($20,000) for its
apparent willful and repeated violation of Section 301 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended
(Act),' and Sections 1.903(a) and 1.949(a) of the Commission's rules (Rules).' The noted apparent
violations involve Emigrant's operation of PLMRS station WPKM212 for more than nine years without
the required Commission authority and its associated failure to timely file an application to renew the
2. On April 15, 1997, Emigrant was granted a license to operate station WPKM212 for five
years through April 15, 2002, the expiration date of the station's license.' On January 22, 2002, the
Commission's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (Wireless Bureau) sent Emigrant a courtesy
"renewal reminder" notice for station WPKM212, alerting Emigrant 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.4 Emigrant failed to file a renewal application for station WPKM212 prior to the license
expiration date. In the absence of such filing, Emigrant's license for station WPKM212 automatically
terminated on the April 15, 2002 expiration date.' More than nine years later, on July 31, 2011, Emigrant
filed with the Wireless Bureau a request for Special Temporary Authority (STA), stating that it had
recently discovered that its license for station WPKM212 had expired and that the STA was necessary for
its continued operation.6 On August 3, 2011, the Wireless Bureau granted the STA until January 30, 2012
