    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules)^ to Blessed Hope Baptist Mission
       (Blessed Hope),  permittee of FM broadcast radio station KSVJ with a
       community of service in Seward, 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 July 9, 2013, a Notice of Violation (July NOV) was issued to
       Blessed Hope for a violation noted during a June 18, 2013, site
       inspection. The July NOV was sent via United States Postal Service
       (USPS) certified and first class mailings. No response was received to
       the  July NOV. On August 13, 2013, a Warning for non-response  also
       sent to Blessed Hope advising that a response to the July NOV  was
       required and included a copy of the July NOV. The Warning was also
       sent via USPS certified and first class mailings. Therefore, the
       following violation:

    a. 47 C.F.R. S 73.1015: "The Commission or its representatives may, in
       writing, require from any applicant, permittee, or licensee written
       statements of fact relevant to a determination whether an application
       should be granted or denied, or to a determination whether a license
       should be revoked, or to any other matter within the jurisdiction of
       the Commission, or, in the case of a proceeding to amend the FM or
       Television Table of Allotments, require from any person filing an
       expression of interest, written statements of fact relevant to that
       allotment proceeding. Any such statements of fact are subject to the
       provisions of S 1.17 of this chapter."  No response to the July NOV
       has been received.

    3. Pursuant to Section  308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended,^ and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional

       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.^
