By the Enforcement Bureau, Seattle Field Office:

     1.   This is  an  Official  Notice  of  Violation  (``NOV'') 
issued pursuant to  Section 1.89 of  the Commission's Rules1,  to 
The Moody Bible Institute, licensee of radio station KMBI.

     2.   On various times  on and  before January  19, 2004,  an 
agent of  the  Commission's  Seattle Office,  monitoring  from  a 
remote station, noted that the  programming of KAQQ (AM) at  1280 
kHz was  being rebroadcast  on 1380  kHz.  January  28, 2004,  an 
Agent of  the Commission's  Seattle  Office determined  that  the 
source of transmission on 1380 kHz was AM tower of KMBI which  is 
licensed to operate at 1330 kHz.  On March 10, 2004, an agent  of 
the Commission's Seattle  Office measured the  signal present  on 
1380 kHz at approximately 35 dB below KMBI's modulated carrier on 
1330 kHz.  The following violation was noted:  

          47 C.F.R.  73.44(b): ``...emissions  30 kHz to 60  kHz 
          removed from the carrier must be attenuated at least [5 
          + 1 dB/kHz]  below the unmodulated  carrier level.   In 
          this case emissions would need  to be attenuated to  at 
          least 55 dB below the unmodulated carrier level.''  

          3.   Pursuant to Section  308(b) of the  Communications 
               Act of 1934, as amended,2 and Section 1.89 of  the 
               Commission's Rules, a representative of KMBI, must 
               submit a written statement concerning this  matter 
               within 20  days of  release of  this Notice.   The 
               response must fully  explain each violation,  must 
               contain a  statement  of  the  specific  action(s) 
               taken  to  correct  each  violation  and  preclude 
               recurrence, and  should include  a time  line  for 
               completion of pending  corrective action(s).   The 
               response must be complete in itself and signed  by 
               a principal  or  officer  of  the  licensee.   All 
               replies and documentation sent in response to this 
               Notice should be marked with the File No. and  NOV
