                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: October 11, 2012

   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 (Rules), to STARadio Corp. (STARadio), owner
       of antenna structure # 1007675 in Great Falls, MT. Pursuant to Section
       1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does not preclude the
       Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted, including issuing
       a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the violations noted

    2. On August 10, 2012, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Denver
       District Office inspected antenna structure # 1007675 located 0.3 KM
       east of intersection 45th Ave SW and Fox Farm Rd, Great Falls, MT, and
       observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.50: "Antenna structures requiring painting under this
        part shall be cleaned or repainted as often as necessary to maintain
        good visibility." The antenna is required to be painted and the agent
        observed that the paint was very faded at the time of the inspection
        on August 10, 2012.

     b. 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 dismantlement (FCC Form 854). The owner must also
        immediately notify the Commission using FCC Form 854 upon any change
        in structure height or change in ownership information." A STARadio
        employee informed the agent that STARadio bought the antenna
        structure (and its associated AM broadcast station) on October 31,
        2011, and that STARadio is the current owner of the antenna
        structure. The Antenna Structure Registration, however, still
        reflects the previous owner.

    3. 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 violations and any remedial actions taken.
       Therefore, STARadio, must submit a written statement concerning this
       matter within twenty (20) days of release of this Notice. The response
       (i) must fully explain each violation, including all relevant
       surrounding facts and circumstances, (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 Commission's Rules, we direct
       STARadio to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of STARadio with personal knowledge of the
       representations provided in STARadio's response, verifying the truth
       and accuracy of the information therein, and confirming that all of
       the information requested by this Notice which is in the regulatee's
       possession, custody, control, or knowledge has been produced. To
       knowingly and willfully make any false statement or conceal any
       material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by fine or
       imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.

    5. 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:

   Federal Communications Commission

   Denver District Office

    6. This Notice shall be sent to STARadio Corp. at its address of record.

    7. 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.
