    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Iron River Co-op TV Antenna Corp.

       is warranted.

    2. On November 3, 2010, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Detroit
       Office inspected  Iron River TV  located at 316 North 2nd Avenue, Iron
       River, Michigan, and observed the following violations:

     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 the inspection, Iron River
        TV was monitoring only one source, LP1, WNMU.

     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)."   At the time
        of the inspection, no EAS log was available for inspection.

    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
       Commission's Rules, we seek additional information concerning the
       violation(s) and any remedial actions the station may have taken. 
       Therefore, Iron River TV  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.
