                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: November 5, 2012

   By the Resident Agent, Houston Office, South Central Region, Enforcement
   Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules), to Best Media, Inc., licensee of
       radio station K217DP in Barker, Texas. 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 October 25, 2012, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's Houston Office
       inspected radio station call sign K217DP located in Barker, Texas, and
       observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 74.1234(a)(2): "A station authorized under this subpart
        may be operated without a designated person in attendance if the
        following conditions are met: (2) The transmitter shall also be
        equipped with suitable automatic circuits which will place it in a
        nonradiating condition in the absence of a signal on the input
        channel." The station is operated unattended. At the time of
        inspection, the station was observed transmitting an unmodulated
        carrier. The station's engineer stated there was no equipment
        installed to monitor for the loss of the input signal.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 74.1265(b): "The call sign of the translator or booster
        together with the name, address, and telephone number of the licensee
        or local representative of the licensee if the licensee does not
        reside in the community served by the translator or booster, and the
        name and address of a person and place where station records are
        maintained, shall be displayed at the translator or booster site on
        the structure supporting the transmitting antenna, so as to be
        visible to a person standing on the ground at the transmitter site.
        The display shall be prepared so as to stand normal weathering for a
        reasonable period of time and shall be maintained in a legible
        condition by the licensee." At the time of inspection, no sign was
        observed at the transmitter site regarding information for this
        translator or its licensee.

    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,
       Best Media, Inc. must submit a written statement concerning this
       matter within twenty (20) days of release of this Notice. The response

       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.

       knowingly and willfully make any false statement or conceal any
