NOTICE OF VIOLATION

	Released:  January 30, 2017


By the Regional Director, Region Two, Enforcement Bureau:

 This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
 of the Commission's rules (Rules) to WOCS-LP, a low-power FM operator in
 Orangeburg, South Carolina.  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.

 On Thursday, December 8 , 2016, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's
 Atlanta Office investigated WOCS's operations and verified the following
 violation :

		47 C.F.R. ยง 73.845: "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."  As of December 8, 2016, the
		WOCS-LP transmitter was located at N 33-31-56, W 80-49-18,
		which deviates from the location described in the station
		authorization. WOCS-LP has admitted to raising the height
		of its transmitter, which would subsequently change the
		parameters of its authorized emission of signals.

 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, WOCS-LP
 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.

 In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct WOCS-LP to
 support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
 under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer
 of WOCS-LP, with personal knowledge of the representations provided in
 WOCS-LP'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 WOCS-LP'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.

 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:

		     Federal Communications Commission
		     Office of Region Two Director
		     3600 Hiram-Lithia Springs Rd.
		     Powder Springs, GA, 30127

 This Notice shall be sent to WOCS-LP at its address of record.
