                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: August 15, 2013

   By the Resident Agent, Portland Resident Agent 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 Cascade General Inc. (Cascade
       General), former licensee of Industrial/Business Radio Pool station
       KW8507, in Portland , Oregon. 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 August 6, 2013, following receipt of a complaint alleging that
       Cascade General may have operated station KW8507 after the expiration
       of its license, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Portland Office
       inspected radio station KW8507 located at 5555 N. Channel Avenue,
       Portland, Oregon and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 1.903(a): "Authorization Required- Stations in the
        Wireless Radio Services must be used and operated only in accordance
        with the rules applicable to their particular service as set forth in
        this title and with a valid authorization granted by the Commission
        under the provision of this part." The inspection conducted on August
        6, 2013, revealed that station KW8507 expired on September 17, 2012,
        and was cancelled on November 17, 2012, but Cascade General continued
        to operate its radio station without Commission authority.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S1.949(a): " Applications for renewal of authorizations in
        the Wireless Radio Services must be filed no later than the
        expiration date of the authorization for which renewal is sought, and
        sooner than 90 days prior to expiration..." On August 6, 2013, the
        inspecting agent noted that Cascade General failed to timely file a
        renewal application for station KW8507 after its expiration date on
        September 17, 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, Cascade General, 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). 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 Cascade
       General  to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of Cascade General with personal knowledge of the
       representations provided in Cascade General'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.^
