NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABILITY FOR FORFEITURE
Adopted: April 7, 2011 Released: April 7, 2011
By the District Director, Philadelphia Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement Bureau:
1. In this Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture ("NAL"), we find Harrah's Atlantic City
Operating Company LLC ("Harrah's"), former licensee of Industrial/Business Pool Radio Station WSZ911
in Atlantic City, New Jersey, apparently liable for a forfeiture in the amount of fifteen thousand dollars
($15,000) for 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 Harrah's operation of Station WSZ911 without Commission authority, and its
failure to timely file a renewal application for the station for almost ten years.
2. On April 8, 2010, agents in the Enforcement Bureau's Philadelphia Office ("Philadelphia
Office") conducted routine monitoring of several paging frequencies in the Atlantic City area and observed
an unlicensed station operating on 462.800 MHz. The agents used direction-finding techniques to locate
the source of the transmissions on 462.800 MHz to the roof of Harrah's Resort Atlantic City, 777
Harrah's Boulevard, Atlantic City, New Jersey. The same day, the agents inspected the radio transmitting
equipment operated by Harrah's and confirmed that the transmitter was operating on the frequency
462.800 MHz. According to the Commission's records, Harrah's previous license to operate the 462.800
MHz paging system under the call sign WSZ911 had expired on December 13, 2000.
3. On May 3, 2010, the Philadelphia Office issued a letter of inquiry ("LOl").3 In its response
to the LOI, Harrah's admits that it failed to renew its license for station WSZ9] 1 after it expired on
December 13, 2000.4 Harrah's also concedes that, notwithstanding being notified of the unlicensed
