                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: March 9, 2010

   By the District Director, San Francisco Office, Western Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Univision Television Group, Inc.,
       registrant of antenna structure # 1047885 on Bear Mountain near San
       Andreas, California.

    2. On December 10, 2009, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's San Francisco
       Office inspected antenna structure # 1047885 located near San Andreas,
       California, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.6 (a): "The antenna structure owner is responsible
        for maintaining the painting and lighting in accordance with this
        part." At the time of inspection the structure's painting and
        lighting was not being maintained in accordance with the
        specifications set forth in the antenna structure registration
        ("ASR"). The ASR at that time required painting and lighting to meet
        the specifications of FCC paragraphs 1,3,12, and 21 (the structure be
        painted and have at its top a flashing red beacon along with steady
        burning red side obstruction lights at two-thirds and one-third of
        the overall height of the tower, and the lights were to be displayed
        continuously or controlled by a light sensitive device). The lights
        as installed were dual lighting with a red flashing light for
        nighttime operation and a flashing medium intensity light for daytime
        operation. The lights were controlled with a light sensitive device.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.47(a)(2): "The owner of any antenna structure which
        is registered with the Commission and has been assigned lighting
        specifications referenced in this part: ... Shall provide and
        properly maintain an automatic alarm system designed to detect any
        failure of such lights and to provide indication of such failure to
        the owner." At the time of the inspection, the agents determined that
        the automatic alarm system was not working as the system had failed
        to report that the nighttime lighting had failed.

     c. 47 C.F.R. S:17.51(a): "All red obstruction lighting shall be
        exhibited from sunset to sunrise unless otherwise specified." The
        inspection revealed that the daytime lighting configuration was
        operating continuously, and that the red nighttime lights were not
        being displayed after sunset.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Univision Television
       Group, Inc., must submit a written statement concerning this matter
       within 20 days of release of this Notice. The response must fully

       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 Univision Television Group, Inc. All replies
