       ("Wilks"), licensee of radio station KWFP, Sparks, Nevada, operating
       on 92.1 MHz, and KURK, Reno, Nevada, operating on 92.9 MHz.

    2. On November 29, 2011, agents of the Commission's San Francisco Office
       investigated radio stations KWFP and KURK transmitting from Reno,
       Nevada, and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S:73.317(a): "FM broadcast stations employing transmitters
   authorized after January 1, 1960, must maintain the bandwidth occupied by
   their emissions in accordance with the specification detailed below. FM
   broadcast stations employing transmitters installed or type accepted
   before January 1, 1960, must achieve the highest degree of compliance with
   these specifications practicable with their existing equipment. In either
   case, should harmful interference to other authorized stations occur, the
   licensee shall correct the problem promptly or cease operation." The 9th
   harmonic of KWFP (828.9 MHz) and the 9th harmonic of KURK (836.1 MHz) were
   emanating from the FM tower of KWFP and KURK, causing interference to the
   AT&T Mobility transmitter located approximately 150 feet away.

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