                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: September  9, 2013

   By the Resident Agent, San Juan Office, South Central Region, Enforcement
   Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules)^ to The Catholic, Apostolic and
       Roman Church in Puerto Rico, licensee of digital TV station WORO-DT in
       Fajardo, Puerto Rico. 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 May 6, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's San Juan Office
       inspected Station WORO-DT's transmitter site, and observed the
       following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 73.1350(a): "Each licensee is responsible for maintaining
        and operating its broadcast station in a manner which complies with
        the technical rules set forth elsewhere in this part and in
        accordance with the terms of the station authorization." The station
        authorization for WORO-DT states that the center of radiation should
        be 56 meters above ground. On May 6, 2013, an agent from the San Juan
        Office observed the station's transmitter and believed it to be
        higher than authorized. Measurements conducted by the antenna
        structure owner on August 13, 2013 confirmed that the center of
        radiation for Station WORO-DT is currently 63.25 Meters above ground.

    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, The Catholic, Apostolic and Roman Church in Puerto Rico
       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 The Catholic,
       Apostolic and Roman Church in Puerto Rico to support its response to
       this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under penalty of perjury,
       signed and dated by an authorized officer of The Catholic, Apostolic
       and Roman Church in Puerto Rico with personal knowledge of the
       representations provided in the licensee'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.^
