                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: June 17, 2010

   By the District Director, San Diego Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a  Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Hi-Favor Broadcasting, LLC.
       (Hi-Favor), licensee of AM Broadcast radio station KSDO(AM)  - San
       Diego, California..  This Notice may be combined with a further
       action, if further action is warranted.

    2. On June 11, 2010,,   an agent  of the Enforcement Bureau's San Diego 
       Office inspected KSDO  located at 344 F Street, Suite 200, Chula
       Vista, California, and observed the following violations:

   a. 47 C.F.R. S: 11.35(a): "EAS Participants must determine the cause of
   any failure to receive  the required tests or activations specified in
   Sections 11.61(a)(1) and (a)(2). Appropriate entries indicating reasons
   why any tests were not received or sent must be made in the broadcast
   station log as specified in Sections 73.1820 and 73.1840 of this chapter
   for all broadcast streams . . . . "  At the time of the inspection, the
   agent found that there were no entries in the station log indicating why
   tests had not been received from the second local primary (LP-2)  KLSD
   (AM)  for various weeks during three months prior to the inspection.

   b. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.3526(e)(12): "For commercial AM and FM broadcast
   stations, every three months a list of programs that have provided the
   station's most significant treatment of community issues during the
   preceding three month period. The list for each calendar quarter is to be
   filed by the tenth day of the succeeding calendar quarter (e.g., January
   10 for the quarter October - December, etc.). At the time of inspection
   there was no report for the first quarter of 2010 for the quarter January
   - March (due April 10) in the public inspection file.

    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.  We also must investigate
       violations of other rules that apply to broadcast licensees. Pursuant
       to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and
       Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, we seek additional information
       concerning the violations and any remedial actions the station may
       have taken.  Therefore, Hi-Favor, must submit a written statement
       concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of release of this
       Notice. The response (i) must fully explain each violation, including
       all relevant surrounding facts and circumstances, (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
       Hi-Favor,  to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of Hi-Favor, with personal knowledge of the
       representations provided in Hi-Favor's response, verifying the truth
       and accuracy of the information therein, and confirming that all of
       the information requested by this Notice which is in the licensee's
