                                   Released:  February 23, 

By the District Director, Kansas City Office, South Central 
Region, Enforcement Bureau:

   1.     This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued 
     pursuant to Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules,1 to 
     Maria L. Salazar, licensee of radio station KTCM.

   2.     On February 16, 2005, an agent of the Commission's 
     Kansas City Office attempted an inspection of radio 
     station KTCM  located in Kingman, Kansas, and observed 
     the following violation(s):

   2.a.      47 C.F.R.  73.1125: ``Each FM broadcast 
             station shall maintain a main studio.''  
             The Commission has determined that this 
             includes maintaining a full-time 
             managerial and non-managerial presence 
             during normal business hours.  This also 
             includes providing access to the station's 
             public inspection file during normal 
             business hours.  Normal business hours are 
             typically an 8-hour period between 8:00 
             a.m. and 6:00 p.m. local time Monday 
             through Friday.

             At the time of the attempted inspection, 
             2:00 p.m., the studio door was locked, no 
             person was present, and no business hours 
             were found posted.  The station manager, 
             via telephone, stated that no person was 
             on duty at the station's studio after 
             12:00 p.m. (Noon) on Wednesdays, Thursdays 
             or Fridays. 

   2.b.      47 C.F.R.  73.1225: ``The licensee of a 
             broadcast station shall make the station 
             available for inspection by 
             representatives of the FCC during the 
             station's business hours, or at any time 
             it is in operation.''  

             At the time of the attempted inspection of 
             the station, no person was present at the 
             station, or available to allow an 
             inspection.  The station manager was 
             contacted by telephone at his location in 
             Wichita, Kansas, approximately 60 miles 
             distance from Kingman, Kansas.  The 
             manager stated that the sole station 
             operator in Kingman had normal hours of 
             8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Mondays and 
             Tuesdays, and from 8:00 a.m. to Noon on 
             Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

     action(s).  The response must be complete in itself and
