                     NOTICE OF VIOLATION
                                           Released:  August 
3, 2005

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

   1.     This is a Notice of Violation (``Notice'') issued 
     pursuant to Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules1 to 
     Cebridge Connections, operator of a cable system 
     serving Terrell, Texas.

   2.     On June 27, 2005, an agent of the Commission's 
     Dallas Office inspected the cable television system 
     located at Terrell, Texas, and observed the following 

2.a.      47 C.F.R.  11.35(a): ``...cable systems...are 
          responsible for ensuring that EAS Encoders, 
          EAS Decoders and Attention Signal generating 
          and receiving equipment used as part of the 
          EAS are installed so that the monitoring and 
          transmitting functions are available during 
          the times the stations and systems are in 
          operation.  Additionally, ... cable systems 
          ...must determine the cause of any failure to 
          receive the required tests or activations 
          specified in  11.61(a)(1) and (2).  
          Appropriate entries must be made in the cable 
          system record as specified in  76.1700, 
          76.1708 and 76.1711 of this chapter ... 
          indicating reasons why any tests were not 
          received.'' A review of the available EAS logs 
          from August 30, 2004 through June 28, 2005 
          revealed that there were missing entries for 
          received tests.  There were numerous weeks 
          which did not have an entry for a received 
          test and those weeks which showed a received 
          test just logged reception of an End of 
          Message (EOM) without logging the actual 
          message.  There were no appropriate entries in 
          the available records explaining the missing 
          log entries. 

2.b.      47 C.F.R.  76.612(a)(1): ``In the 
          aeronautical radiocommunication bands 118-137, 
          225-328.6 and 335.4-400 MHz, the frequency of 
          all carrier signals or signal components 
          carried at an average power level equal to or 
          greater than 10-4 watts in a 25 kHz bandwidth 
          in any 160 microsecond period must operate at 
          frequencies offset from certain frequencies 
          which may be used by aeronautical radio 
          services operated by Commission licensees or 
          by the United States Government or its 
          Agencies. The aeronautical frequencies from 
          which offsets must be maintained are those 
          frequencies which are within one of the 
          aeronautical bands defined in this 
          subparagraph, and when expressed in MHz and 
          divided by 0.025 yield an integer. .... All 
          such cable carriers or signal components shall 
          be offset by 12.5 kHz with a frequency 
          tolerance of 5 kHz...''  On June 27, 2005, 
          the Video Carrier for cable channel 14 was 
          measured as 121.250 MHz and was not off-set 
          from the aeronautical frequency as required.

   3.     Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications 
     Act of 1934, as amended,2 and Section 1.89 of the 
     Commission's Rules, Cebridge Connections, must submit a 
     written statement concerning this matter within twenty 
     (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 cable operator.  
     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:
