   Released: January  24, 2007

   By the District Director, Denver Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to US Cable of Coastal-Texas LP ("US
       Cable"), operator of a cable system in Marshdale, Colorado.

    2. On November 21, 2006, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Denver
       Office inspected the US Cable cable system located at Marshdale,
       Colorado, and observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 11.61(b): "Entries shall be made in...cable system and
        wireless cable system records as specified in S 11.54(b)(12)." At the
        time of the inspection, while the EAS equipment was found to be
        operational, US Cable's 2006 logs contained no entries made of
        transmitted or received required monthly tests.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 76.605(a)(12): "As an exception to the general provision
        requiring measurements to be made at subscriber terminals, and
        without regard to the type of signals carried by the cable television
        system, signal leakage from a cable television system shall be
        measured in accordance with the procedures outlined in S 76.609(h)
        and shall be limited as follows: Over 54 MHz up to and including 216
        MHz - 20 micro-volts per meter, measured at 3 meters." At the time of
        the inspection, agents observed signal leakage on the frequency of
        121.2625 MHz at the following location:

   1) Grandma's Mountain Home, 650 Hwy 73, Evergreen, CO 287 uV/m

     c. 47 C.F.R. S 76.612(a)(1): "All cable television systems which operate
        in the frequency bands 108-137 and 225-400 MHz shall comply with the
        following frequency separation standards: All such cable carriers or
        signal components shall be offset by 12.5 kHz with a frequency
        tolerance of +/- 5kHz." At the time of the inspection, US Cable
        channel 52 (PP) (391.2625 MHz) was operating outside the allowable
        frequency tolerance. The video carrier frequency was measured as
        391.24100 MHz.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, US Cable must submit a
       written statement concerning this matter within 20 days of release 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 in itself and signed by a principal or officer of US Cable.
