       including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for
       the violation(s) noted herein.^

    2. On June 4, 2013 an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Houston Office

        of retransmitting the signals of a primary AM or FM radio broadcast
        station or another translator station the signal of which is received
        directly through space, converted, and suitably amplified, and
        originating programming to the extent authorized in paragraphs (f),
        (g), and (h) of this section...." At the time of inspection, the
        agent observed that Aleluya Broadcasting Network's FM Translator
        Station K236AR was not receiving a direct off-the-air signal but

        inspection, station K236AR was rebroadcasting programming it had not
        intended to rebroadcast.
