                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: December 2, 2008

   By the District Director, Tampa Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
       University,  licensee of radio station WIKD-LP in Daytona Beach, FL.

    2. On October 31, 2008, agents of the Commission's Tampa Office of the
       Enforcement Bureau ("Tampa Office") inspected radio station WIKD-LP's
       main studio located in Daytona Beach, FL, and observed the following

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 11.52 (d): "EAS Participants 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. They are developed in accordance with FCC
        monitoring priorities." At the time of inspection, WIKD-LP was not
        monitoring the two EAS sources specified in the State EAS Plan. The
        station representative was unable to demonstrate that the EAS decoder
        was receiving the two EAS sources or provide a reason why the device
        was not receiving the activation signal from the EAS sources.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 11.61 (a): "EAS Participants shall conduct tests at
        regular intervals, as specified in paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) of
        this section. Additional tests may be performed anytime. EAS
        activation and special test may be performed in lieu of required
        tests as specified in paragraph (a)(4) of this section. All tests
        will conform with the procedures in the EAS Operating Handbook." At
        the time of inspection, WIKD-LP's logs showed that it was not
        receiving the required weekly tests. WIKD-LP was also not receiving
        or sending the required monthly test. Logs only reflect that the
        station was originating a required weekly test.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Embry-Riddle
       Aeronautical University 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 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 the licensee. All replies and
       documentation sent in response to this Notice should be marked with
       the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to the following
