                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May  23, 2013

   By the District Director, Los Angeles 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 Ondas De Vida, Inc., licensee of
       FM translator station K212GC in Pomona, California. 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 April 26, 2013, in response to a licensee complaint of interference
       on 91.9 MHz, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles office
       located via direction finding techniques the mountain top site that
       was the origination point of the interfering signal. The agent made
       contact with Ondas De Vida, Inc. to schedule access to the site in
       order to conduct an inspection and in the interim Ondas De Vida, Inc.
       reduced power to station K212GC which eliminated the interference. On
       April 29, 2013, the K212GC station engineer advised the Los Angeles
       agent that the interference was caused by the removal of station
       K212GC's RF bandpass filter which was sent to a service company for
       maintenance/repair.

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 74.1203(a)(1): "An authorized FM translator or booster
        station will not be permitted to continue to operate if it causes any
        actual interference to: (1) the transmission of any authorized
        broadcast station." At the time of the investigation, translator
        station K212GC on 90.3 MHz was causing actual interference to
        licensed full-service station KVCR(FM) on 91.9 MHz.

    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, Ondas De Vida, Inc. 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). Furthermore, we
       request a statement as to how K212GC demonstrated compliance with
       Section 74.1236 of the Rules, emission and bandwidth, when it
       continued to operate without a RF bandpass filter within its
       transmission system. 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 Ondas De Vida,
       Inc. to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of Ondas De Vida, Inc. with personal knowledge of
       the representations provided in Ondas De Vida, Inc.'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
