                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: June 28, 2011

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

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to section
       1.89 of the Commission's rules ("Rules"), to Birach Broadcasting
       Corporation, licensee of Station KJMU in Sand Springs, Oklahoma.

    2. On April 26, 2011, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's Dallas Office
       inspected the main studio of Station KJMU located in Sand Springs,
       Oklahoma, and observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1560(a): "AM stations. (1) Except as provided for in
        paragraph (d) of this section, the antenna input power of an AM
        station as determined by the procedures specified in S: 73.51 must be
        maintained as near as is practicable to the authorized antenna input
        power and may not be less than 90% nor more than 105% of the
        authorized power." At the time of the inspection, the transmitter
        meter indicated the station was operating at 109% of authorized

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1820(b)(4): "In the event of failure or
        malfunctioning of the automatic equipment, the person designated by
        the licensee as being responsible for the log s[h]all make the
        required entries in the log manually at that time." At the time of
        this inspection, the station personnel could not access the Burke
        controller to recover the station log without loss of the data. The
        station was not making entries in a manual log. The station received
        a previous verbal warning about this condition in November 2010.

     c. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1870(c)(3): "Review of the station records at least
        once each week to determine if required entries are being made
        correctly. Additionally, verification must be made that the station
        has been operated as required by the rules or the station
        authorization. Upon completion of the review, the chief operator or
        his designee must date and sign the log, initiate any corrective
        action which may be necessary, and advise the station licensee of any
        condition which is repetitive."  At the time of the inspection the
        Chief Operator was not initiating corrective action to establish a
        manual log and allowed paper to pile on top of the Emergency Alert
        System printer, creating a paper jam. The paper jam was cleared
        during the inspection.

    3. Pursuant to section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and section 1.89 of the Rules, Birach Broadcasting Corporation, must
       submit a written statement concerning this matter within 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
       Birach Broadcasting Corporation. 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 address:
