   By the District Director, Boston Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Carrelo Candido, licensee  of AM
       radio station WFNW, Naugatuk, CT.

    2. On June 27, 2006, an agent of the Commission's Boston Office inspected
       radio station WFNW  located at Mallane Lane, Naugatuck, CT, and
       observed the following violations:

   a. 47 C.F.R. S 73.3526(e)(5): Every licensee of a commercial broadcast
   station must maintain in its public inspection file "[a] copy of the most
   recent, complete ownership report filed with the FCC for the station,
   together with any statements filed with the FCC certifying that the
   current report is accurate, and together with all related material. These
   materials shall be retained until a new, complete ownership report is
   filed with the FCC, at which time a copy of the new report and any related
   materials shall be placed in the file." At the time of inspection, the
   most recent ownership report in WFNW's public file was for the year 2000.

   b. 47 C.F.R. S 73.3526(e)(12): Every licensee of a commercial broadcast
   station must place in its public inspection file "every three months a
   list of programs that have provided the station's most significant
   treatment of community issues during the preceding three month period." At
   the time of the inspection, WFNW's public inspection file did not contain
   any issues/programs lists for the period after January 2006.

   c. 47 C.F.R. S 73.3526(e)(14): Every licensee of a commercial broadcast
   station must maintain in its public inspection file "a copy of every
   agreement or contract involving time brokerage of the licensee's station.
   . . ." The agent determined during the inspection that the station is
   brokered full time. The public inspection file, however, did not contain
   any agreement or contract regarding the station's time brokerage.

       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Carrelo Candido,
