                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: April 8, 2013

   By the District Director, Dallas Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules)^ to Tuck Properties, Inc., licensee
       of Low Power TV Station KNAV-LP in De Soto, Texas. 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 March 7, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Dallas Office
       inspected the transmitter site for Station KNAV-LP, located in De
       Soto, Texas, and observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 74.765(b): "The call sign of the station, together with
        the name, address, and telephone number of the licensee, if the
        licensee does not reside in the community served by the station, and
        the name and address of the person and where the station records are
        maintained, shall be displayed at the transmitter site on the
        structure supporting the transmitting antenna, so as to be visible to
        a person standing on the ground. The display shall be maintained in
        legible condition by the licensee". At the time of the inspection,
        the agent observed that the required sign was not posted.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 74.784(b): "The licensee of a low power TV or TV
        translator station shall not rebroadcast the programs of any other TV
        broadcast station or other station authorized under the provisions of
        this Subpart without obtaining prior consent of the station whose
        signals or programs are proposed to be retransmitted. The FCC,
        Attention: Video Division, Media Bureau, shall be notified of the
        call letters of each station rebroadcast, and the licensee of the low
        power TV or TV broadcast translator station shall certify it has
        obtained written consent from the licensee of the station whose
        programs are being retransmitted." During the day of the inspection,
        Tuck Properties, Inc. stated in an email that Station KNAV-LP did not
        have a written agreement with HOT TV to rebroadcast their
        programming. Tuck Properties, Inc. only had a verbal agreement to
        rebroadcast HOT TV's programming.

    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.

       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.^
