                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released:  October 31, 2011

   By the District Director, Denver 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 Educational Communications of
       Colorado Springs, Inc. ("ECCI"), license of FM Translator Station
       K292FM, licensed to Denver, Colorado.

    2. On September 11, 2011, in response to a complaint from the FAA
       regarding interference to its operation on 118.9 MHz, an agent of the
       Enforcement Bureau's Denver Office monitored radio station K292FM
       located atop Lookout Mountain in Golden, Colorado, and observed the
       following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S:74.1203(e): "It shall be the responsibility of the
        licensee of an FM translator or FM booster station to correct any
        condition of interference which results from the radiation of radio
        frequency energy by its equipment on any frequency outside the
        assigned channel. Upon notice by the Commission to the station
        licensee that such interference is being caused, the operation of the
        FM translator or FM booster station shall be suspended within three
        minutes and shall not be resumed until the interference has been
        eliminated or it can be demonstrated that the interference is not due
        to spurious emissions by the FM translator or FM booster station;
        provided, however, that short test transmissions may be made during
        the period of suspended operation to check the efficacy of remedial
        measures." In response to the complaint, the Denver agent located the
        source to the K292FM transmitter site. When notified by the Denver
        agent on September 12, 2011, that K292FM was determined to be the
        source of the spurious emissions, ECCI's representative suspended the
        translator's operation.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, ECCI 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 ECCI. 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:

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Educational Communications of Colorado
       Springs, Inc., at its address of record.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
