   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a  Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Mount San Antonio Community College
       District, licensee of Noncommercial Educational FM Broadcast station

    2. On September 28, 2009,  an agent  of the Enforcement Bureau's  Los

       observed the following violations:

   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

   At the time of the inspection, the agent found that KSAK was only
   monitoring one assigned source, KFI (AM). Neither KFWB (AM) nor KNX (AM)
   was being monitored as a second source.

    3. As the nation's emergency warning system, the Emergency Alert System
       is critical to public safety, and we recognize the vital role that
       broadcasters play in ensuring its success. The Commission takes
       seriously any violations of the Rules implementing the EAS and expects
       full compliance from its regulatees. Pursuant to Section 403 of the
       Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 1.89 of the

       (ii) must contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to
       correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must include
       a time line for completion of any pending corrective action(s). The
       response must be complete in itself  and must not be abbreviated by
       reference to other communications or answers to other notices.

    4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Commission's Rules, we direct
       Mount San Antonio Community College District to support its response
