                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: October 24, 2013

   By the Resident Agent, Anchorage 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 Educational Media Foundation,
       licensee of FM translator station K220IV serving North Pole, Alaska.
       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 noted herein.^

    2. On September 17, 2013, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's Anchorage
       Resident Agent Office inspected FM translator K220IV located at Birch
       Hill, Fairbanks, Alaska, and observed the following violation:

   a. 47 C.F.R. S Section 74.1265(b):   "The call sign of the translator or
   booster together with the name, address, and telephone number of the
   licensee or local representative of the licensee if the licensee does not
   reside in the community served by the translator or booster, and the name
   and address of a person and place where station records are maintained,
   shall be displayed at the translator or booster site on the structure
   supporting the transmitting antenna, so as to be visible to a person
   standing on the ground at the transmitter site. The display shall be
   prepared so as to withstand normal weathering for a reasonable period of
   time and shall be maintained in a legible condition by the licensee."  The
   licensee does not reside in the community  served by this translator;  and
   at the time of the inspection, the agents observed that  the posted
   signage failed to display the name, address and telephone number of the
   licensee's local representative.

    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, Educational Media Foundation 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 Educational
       Media Foundation to support its response to this Notice with an
       affidavit or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by
       an authorized officer of Educational Media Foundation with personal

       Foundation'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.^
