                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: September 6, 2006

   By the Resident Agent, Buffalo Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Waynco Radio, Inc., licensee of
       radio stations WACK and WUUF, and owner of antenna structure #s
       1008084, 1008085, 1008086, 1008087, 1008088, and 1008089 in Newark,
       New York.

    2. On August 22, 2006, an agent of the Commission's Buffalo Office
       inspected the directional array for radio station WACK, the main
       studios for radio stations WACK and WUUF and antenna structures
       1008084, 1008085, 1008086, 1008087, 1008088 and 1008089, which are
       located at 187 Vienna Road, Newark, New York., and observed the
       following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 11.52(d): "Broadcast stations and cable systems and
        wireless cable carriers must monitor two EAS sources. The monitoring
        assignments of each broadcast station and cable system and wireless
        cable system are specified in the State EAS Plan and FCC-EAS
        Mapbook." At the time of inspection, the agent observed that stations
        WACK and WUUF were not monitoring the correct Emergency Alert System
        ("EAS") sources.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 11.61(a)(1)(v): "Required Monthly Tests of the EAS header
        codes, Attention Signal, Test Script and EOM code...must be
        transmitted within 60 minutes of receipt by broadcast
        an EAS Local Area or State." Based on the agent's review of the
        stations' EAS printouts and a statement by the stations' owner, the
        agent determined that stations WACK and WUUF were not retransmitting
        required monthly tests.

     c. 47 C.F.R. S 17.4(g): "The Antenna Structure Registration Number must
        be displayed in a conspicuous place so that it is readily visible
        near the base of the antenna structure." At the time of the
        inspection, no Antenna Structure Registration Numbers were visible at
        the base of any of the six antenna structures.

     d. 47 C.F.R. S 73.49: AM Transmission System Fencing Requirements.
        "Antenna Towers having radio frequency potential at the base (Series
        Fed, Folded, unipole and insulated base antennas) must be enclosed
        within effective locked fences or other enclosures. Ready access must
        be provided to each antenna tower base for meter reading and
        maintenance purposes at all times. However, individual tower fences
        need not be installed if the towers are contained within a protective
        property fence." The gates around antennas structures 1008084,
        1008085, 1008086, 1008087 and 1008089 were not securely locked.

     e. 47 C.F.R. S 73.61(a) ): "Each AM station using a directional antenna
        must make field strength measurements at the monitoring point
        locations specified in the instrument of authorization as often as
        necessary to ensure that the field at those points does not exceed
        the values specified in the station authorization." At the time of
        inspection, the field strength measurement at the day pattern,
        90.5DEG monitoring point exceeded the licensed maximum value by

    3. Pursuant to Sections 308(b) and 403 of the Communications Act of 1934,
       as amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Waynco Radio,
       Inc., must submit a written statement concerning this matter within
