By the District Director, Boston Office, Northeast Region, 
Enforcement Bureau:

  1.      This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued 
     pursuant to Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules,1 to KJI 
     Broadcasting, licensee of AM station WBET in Brockton, MA.

  2.      On, April 21, 2005, agents of the Commission's Boston 
     Office inspected radio station WBET located at Brockton, MA 
     , and observed the following violations:

  2.a.      47 C.F.R.  73.1560(a)(1): ``The antenna input 
            power of an AM station as determined by the 
            procedures specified in  73.51 must be 
            maintained as near as is practicable to the 
            authorized antenna input power and may not be 
            less than 90% nor more than 105% of the 
            authorized power.'' The antenna input power was 
            observed to be 4030 Watts which is less than 
            90% of the allowed power for daytime operation.

  2.b.      47 C.F.R.  73.1870(b)(3): ``The designation of 
            the chief operator must be in writing with a 
            copy of the designation posted with the station 
            license.'' At the time of inspection, the 
            designation of the chief operator was not 
            posted with the station license.

  2.c.      47 C.F.R.  73.1870(c)(3): ``Review of the 
            station records at least once each week to 
            determine if required entries are being made 
            correctly. Additionally, verification must be 
            made that the station has been operated as 
            required by the rules or the station 
            authorization. Upon completion of the review, 
            the chief operator or his designee must date 
            and sign the log, initiate any corrective 
            action which may be necessary, and advise the 
            station licensee of any condition which is 
            repetitive.'' During the inspection, the agent 
            observed that the logs were not signed and 
            dated by the Chief Operator and the Chief 
            Operator stated that he had not reviewed the 
            station logs.

  2.d.      47 C.F.R.  73.1820(a)(1)(iii): All stations 
            are required to maintain ``an entry of each 
            test and activation of the Emergency Alert 
            System (EAS) pursuant to the requirement of 
            part 11 of this chapter and the EAS Operating 
            Handbook.'' During the inspection, the agent 
            observed that the station logs contained only 
            two weekly EAS tests between the months of 
            January and March 2005.
