   Released: November 26, 2012

   By the District Director, Philadelphia  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 Colonial Radio Group of
       Williamsport, LLC (Colonial Radio), licensee of AM Station WLYC in
       Williamsport, Pennsylvania.  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 noted herein.

    2. Between September 24, 2012 and October 8, 2012, in response to a
       complaint, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Philadelphia Office
       monitored the transmissions of Station WLYC and observed the following
       violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 73.1560(a)(1): "[t]he antenna input power of an AM station as
   determined by the procedures specified in S:73.51 must be maintained as
   near as is practicable to the authorized antenna input power and may not
   be less than 90% nor more than 105% of the authorized power." Station WLYC
   is authorized to operate with a daytime power of 1000 Watts between local
   sunrise time and local sunset time. Colonial Radio operated Station WLYC
   with 30 Watts,  or 3% of its authorized daytime power, from local sunrise
   time of 6:45 a.m. until 8:25 a.m.  between September 25, 2012 and
   September 30, 2012, and from local sunrise time of 7:15 am until 8:24 am
   between October 1, 2012 and October 8, 2012.

    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,
       Colonial Radio must submit a written statement concerning this matter
       within twenty (20) calendar 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 Rules, we direct Colonial Radio
       to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of Colonial Radio with personal knowledge of the
       representations provided in Colonial Radio'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.
