                                                   Released: October 19, 2011

   By the District Director, Los Angeles District 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 Coxcom Inc. ("Coxcom"), operator of
       a cable system in Santa Barbara, California.

    2. On September 15,  2011, in response to a complaint that a signal was
       interfering with AT&T Mobility's operations in the 800 MHz band, in
       Santa Barbara, CA,  an agent from the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles
       Office located the interfering signal to cable signal leakage from
       Coxcom's cable at 1000 Ladera Lane, Santa Barbara, CA. During the
       course of the investigation, the agent observed the following

   a. 47 C.F.R. S: 76.613: "(a)  Harmful interference is any emission,
   radiation or induction which endangers the functioning of a
   radionavigation service or of other safety services or seriously degrades,
   obstructs or repeatedly interrupts a radiocommunication service operating
   in accordance with this chapter.  (b) [A multi-channel video programming
   distributor]  that causes harmful interference shall promptly take
   appropriate measures to eliminate the harmful interference." At the time
   of the investigation, the agent observed signal leakage in the 800 MHz
   band (emissions had the characteristics of digital TV signals, spaced 6
   MHz apart) at 1000 Ladera Lane, Santa Barbara, CA, which was  capable of
   causing harmful interference to AT&T Mobility's operations.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Coxcom 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 Coxcom. 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:
