                          Released: November 14, 2013

   By the District Director, Los Angeles 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   Ondas de Vida Network, Inc.
       (Ondas),  licensee of the FM translator station K234BS in Las Vegas,
       Nevada.  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 violations noted herein.^

    2. On September 11, 2013, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles
       Office inspected  the FM translator station K234BS located in Las
       Vegas, Nevada, and observed the following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 74.1251 (b) (2): "Formal application on FCC Form 349 is
        required of all permittees and licensees for any of the following
        changes: ... a change in the transmitting antenna system, including
        the direction of radiation or directive antenna pattern..." At the
        time of inspection, agents observed the installed transmitting
        antenna system consisted of two five- element yagi antennas
        manufactured by Samco and that one of the directional antennas' was
        orientated in a non-authorized direction. Neither this manufacturer
        of transmitting antenna nor antenna orientation is authorized by  the
        K234BS  license or pending application for construction permit.

    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 violation and any remedial actions taken.
       Therefore, Ondas must submit a written statement concerning this
       matter within twenty (20) days of release of this Notice. The response
       (i) must fully explain the violation, including all relevant
       surrounding facts and circumstances, (ii) must contain a statement of
       the specific action(s) taken to correct the violations 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 Ondas to
       support his response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
       under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by him, verifying the truth
       and accuracy of the information therein,^ and confirming that all of
       the information requested by this Notice which is in the registrant'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.^

    5. All replies and documentation sent in response to this Notice should
       be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to
       the following address:
