                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: December 20, 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 Iron County, licensee of television
       translator station K52KA-D in Kanarraville, UT.

    2. On November 15, 2011, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Denver
       District Office inspected television translator station K52KA-D,
       located at Kanarraville, UT, and observed the following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 74.703(c): "It shall be the responsibility of the
        licensee of a low power TV, TV translator, or TV booster station to
        correct any condition of interference which results from the
        radiation of radio frequency energy outside its assigned channel.
        Upon notice by the FCC to the station licensee or operator that such
        interference is caused by spurious emissions of the station,
        operation of the station shall be immediately suspended and not
        resumed until the interference has been eliminated. However, short
        test transmissions may be made during the period of suspended
        operation to check the efficacy of remedial measures." During the
        inspection conducted on November 15, 2011, the Denver agent
        determined that spurious emissions generated by K52KA-D caused
        interference to the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity ("SMOS")
        satellite operated by the European Space Agency ("ESA"). Iron County
        took corrective measures when notified by the Denver agent.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Iron County 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
       Iron County. 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 Iron County 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
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
