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

    2. On August 17, 2006, an agent of the Commission's Houston Office
       inspected radio station KMVL located in Madisonville, Texas, and
       observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 11.35(b): "If the EAS Encoder or EAS Decoder becomes
        defective, the broadcast station, cable system, or wireless cable
        system may operate without the defective equipment pending its repair
        or replacement for 60 days without further FCC authority. Entries
        shall be made in the broadcast station log, cable system or wireless
        cable system station records showing the date and time the equipment
        was removed and restored to service. For personnel training purposes,
        the required monthly test script must still be transmitted even
        though the equipment for generating the EAS message codes, Attention
        Signal, and EOM code is not functioning." At the time of inspection,
        the station did have documentation indicating that the EAS equipment
        had been out of service for less than sixty days and steps had been
        taken to repair the unit, however, the EAS records did not note this
        fact or that the monthly test script had been sent the month prior to
        the inspection.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Leon Hunt, 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
       licensee. All replies and documentation sent in response to this
       Notice should be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above,
