                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: December 19, 2011

   By the District Director, Philadelphia Office, Northeast Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's rules to Cantroair Communications Inc.
       ("Cantroair"), licensee of AM Station WTZN in Troy, Pennsylvania.

    2. On November 3, 2011, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's Philadelphia
       Office inspected Station WTZN located at 1233 Redington Avenue, Troy,
       Pennsylvania, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 11.52(d): "Broadcast stations and cable systems and
        wireless cable systems 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...."
        According to the Pennsylvania State EAS Plan, Station WTZN is
        required to monitor WGGY-FM and WVIA-FM. At the time of inspection,
        WTZN was only monitoring WKSB.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1125(d)(1): "Relocation of the main studio may be
        made: From one point to another within the locations described in
        paragraph (a) or (c) of the section, or from a point outside the
        locations specified in paragraph (a) or (c) to one within those
        locations, without specific FCC authority, but notification to the
        FCC in Washington shall be made promptly." The address of the WTZN
        main studio is 1233 Redington, Avenue, Troy, Pennsylvania. The
        license specifies that the address is 170 Redington Avenue, Troy,
        Pennsylvania. Cantroair failed to notify the Commission of the
        address change of the WTZN main studio.

     c. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1350(c)(1): "Monitoring procedures and schedules must
        enable the licensee to determine compliance with S:73.1560 regarding
        operating power and AM station mode of operation, S: 73.1570
        regarding modulation levels, and, where applicable, S: 73.1213
        regarding antenna tower lighting, and S:73.69 regarding the
        parameters of an AM directional antenna system." At the time of
        inspection, Cantroair had not established monitoring procedures to
        ensure compliance with the station's authorized operating power.

     d. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1560(a)(1): "Except as provided in paragraph (d) of
        this section, the antenna input power of an AM station as determined
        by the procedures specified in Sec. 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." On
        November 2, 2011, at 6:30 p.m., Station WTZN was operating with 1000
        Watts or 1388.9 % of the authorized nighttime power of 72 Watts. The
        licensee reported to the agents that the station failed to
        automatically switch to its authorized nighttime power because of a
        power outage.

     e. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1590(a)(6): "The licensee of each AM, FM, TV and
        Class A TV station, except licensees of Class D non-commercial
        educational FM stations authorized to operate with 10 watts or less
        output power, must make equipment performance measurements for each
        main transmitter as follows: Annually, for AM stations, with not more
        than 14 months between measurements." At the time of inspection,
        Cantroair had not conducted equipment performance measurements for
        Station WTZN since 2009.

     f. 47 C.F.R. S:  73.3526(e)(12): "Radio issues/programs lists. For
        commercial AM and FM broadcast stations, every three months a list of
        programs that have provided the station's most significant treatment
        of community issues during the preceding three month period. The list
        for each calendar quarter is to be filed by the tenth day of the
        succeeding calendar quarter (e.g., January 10 for the quarter
        October-December, April 10 for the quarter January-March, etc.). The
        list shall include a brief narrative describing what issues were
        given significant treatment and the programming that provided this
        treatment. The description of the programs shall include, but shall
        not be limited to, the time, date, duration, and title of each
        program in which the issue was treated." At the time of inspection,
        the WTZN public inspection file was missing the radio issues program
        lists for the 2nd and 3rd Quarters of 2011.

    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 Commission's rules implementing the
       EAS and expects full compliance from its regulatees. We also must
       investigate violations of other rules that apply to broadcast
       licensees.  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, Cantroair must submit

       (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.

       Cantroair  to support its response to this Notice with a statement
       under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of
