                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: November 1, 2012

   By the District Director,  San Diego Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules), to  Radio Vision Cristiana
       Subsidiary Corp. (Radio Vision), licensee of radio station KCKN  in
       Roswell, New Mexico.   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 violation(s) noted herein.

    2. On September 20, 2012, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's San Diego
       Office inspected radio station KCKN located at 1700 La Luz, Roswell,
       New Mexico, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 11.35(a): "EAS Participants are responsible for ensuring
        that EAS Encoders, EAS Decoders, Attention Signal generating and
        receiving equipment, and Intermediate Devices used as part of the EAS
        to decode and/or encode messages formatted in the EAS Protocol and/or
        the Common Alerting Protocol are installed so that the monitoring and
        transmitting functions are available during the times the stations
        and systems are in operation. Additionally, EAS Participants must
        determine the cause of any failure to receive the required tests or
        activations specified in S:11.61(a)(1) and (2). Appropriate entries
        indicating reasons why any tests were not received must be made in
        the broadcast station log as specified in S:S:73.1820 and 73.1840 of
        this chapter for all broadcast streams." At the time of inspection,
        KCKN did not have EAS equipment capable of receiving tests formatted
        with the Common Alerting Protocol. In addition, there were no entries
        in their EAS log to explain why KCKN did not receive the required
        weekly tests from the local primary radio station KSFX from June 10 -
        September 15, 2012.

    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 Rules implementing the EAS and expects
       full compliance from its licensees. 

    4. Pursuant to Section  308(b) 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, Radio Vision 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.

    5. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Commission's Rules, we direct 
       Radio Vision to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit
       or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of  Radio Vision with personal knowledge of the
       representations provided in  Radio Vision  '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 licensee'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.
