     pursuant to Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules,1 to Cox 
     Communications, Inc., the operator of a cable television 
     system in Casa Grande, Arizona.

     Diego Office inspected the  cable system operated by Cox 
     Communications, Inc. in Casa Grande, Arizona, and observed 
     the following violation:


       a. 47 C.F.R.  76.612(a):  ``All cable television 
       systems which operate in 
          the frequency bands 108-137 and 225-400 MHz ... 
          must operate at frequencies offset from certain 
          frequencies which may be used by aeronautical 
          radio services operated by Commission licensees or 
          by the United States Government.'' In this 
          instance, the visual carrier frequency of cable 
          channel 45 measured 349.2971 MHz.  The nearest 
          permitted offset channel is 349.2875 MHz.  This 
          cable channel was measured with a difference of

          which exceeds the allowable tolerance by 4.6 kHz.  
          Also, the visual carrier frequency of cable 
          channel 51 measured 385.3008 MHz.  The nearest 
          permitted offset channel is 385.3125 MHz.  This 
          cable channel was measured with a difference of 
          11.7 kHz from the nearest permitted offset 
          channel, which exceeds the allowable tolerance by 
          6.7 kHz. 

  3.      Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 
     1934, as amended,2 and Section 1.89 of the Commission's

     of this Notice.  The response must fully explain each 
     violation, must contain a statement of the specific 
     action(s) taken to correct each violation and preclude 
     recurrence, and should include a time line for completion of 
     pending corrective action(s).  The response must be complete
