   Released: October 4, 2012

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

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules) to Nassau Broadcasting III, LLC,
       Debtor-in-Possession, licensee of FM Station WWHQ in Meredith, New
       Hampshire. Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this
       NOV does not preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action if
       warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for
       Forfeiture for the violation(s) noted herein.

    2. On August 30, 2012, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Boston Office
       monitored Station WWHQ in Meredith, New Hampshire, and observed the
       following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S:73.317(d): "Any emission appearing on a frequency removed from
   the carrier by more than 600 kHz must be attenuated at least 43 + 10 Log10
   (Power, in watts) dB below the level of the unmodulated carrier, or 80 dB,
   whichever is the lesser attenuation." Agents observed while monitoring
   that spurious emissions from Station WWHQ on the frequency 304 MHz were
   observed to be attenuated -55 dB below the carrier on 101.5 MHz. Spurious
   emissions from Station WWHQ were also observed on 406 MHz and were causing
   interference to the Cospas-Sarsat international search and rescue
   satellite system.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional information
       concerning the violations and any remedial actions taken. Therefore,

       (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.

    4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Nassau
       Broadcasting III, LLC, Debtor-in-Possession to support its response to
