   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules (the "Rules"), to Margaretville
       Telephone Company, Inc ("MTC"), PSID # 06437, operator of a cable
       system serving Delaware County, New York.

    2. On September 20, 2007, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected MTC's cable system located in Margaretville, New York, and
       observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 11.52(d): "Broadcast stations and cable systems and
        wireless cable systems 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 Mapbook..."
        A review of the station's EAS logs showed that, except during the
        weeks of June 17 and August 26, 2007 when the station properly
        monitored two EAS sources, the station was monitoring only one EAS
        source during the months of June, July, and August 2007.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 11.61(b): "Entries shall be made in EAS Participant
        records, as specified in S:S: 11.35(a) and 11.54(b)(13)." A review of
        the station's EAS logs showed that there were no entries for required
        Weekly Test transmitted and required Monthly Test received and
        re-transmitted for the months of June, July and August 2007.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, MTC must submit a written
       statement concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of release of
       this Notice. The response must fully explain each violation, must

       complete in itself and signed by a principal or officer of MTC. All
       replies and documentation sent in response to this Notice should be
