                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

                                                   Released: December 7, 2011

   By the Resident Agent, Houston Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Radio Maria, Inc., owner of antenna
       structures # 1055084 and 1055085 in Port Arthur, Texas.

    2. On November 30, 2011, an agent of the Commission's Houston Office
       inspected antenna structures # 1055084 and 1055085 located in Port
       Arthur, Texas, and observed the following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.57: "The owner of an antenna structure for which an
        Antenna Structure Registration Number has been obtained must notify
        the Commission within 24 hours of completion of construction (FCC
        Form 854-R) and/or the dismantlement (FCC Form 854). The owner must
        also immediately notify the Commission using FCC Form 854 upon any
        change in height or change in ownership information." A review of the
        Commission's Antenna Structure Registration Database reveals that the
        database does not list Radio Maria, Inc. as the owner of these two
        antenna structures, but instead still lists the previous owner.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Radio Maria,
       Inc., must submit a written statement concerning this matter within
       twenty (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 owner of the antenna structures. 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:

       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
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
