                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   June  13, 2007

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to WVRM, Inc. (WDDM) licensee of radio
       station WDDM, Hazlet, New Jersey.

    2. On May 11, 2007, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected WDDM's main studio in Edison, New Jersey and transmitter
       site in Holmdel, New Jersey, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 73.1800(a): "The licensee of each station must maintain a
        station log as required by S 73.1820." At the time of inspection, the
        required station log was not available for inspection.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 73.1350 (b)(2): "The transmitter control personnel must
        have the capability to turn the transmitter off at all times." On May
        11, 2007, the station owner stated that the station's method for
        turning off the transmitter was to disconnect the telephone line
        transmitting audio to the transmitter. This method eliminated the
        modulation, but did not turn off the unmodulated carrier and
        therefore the station did not have effective control of the

     c. 47 C.F.R. S 73.1560 (b): "FM stations operating with authorized
        transmitter output power of 10 watts or less, may operate at less
        than the authorized power, but not more than 105% of the authorized
        power." The Special Temporary Authority issued on January 10, 2007,
        specified a transmitter power output of 9.3 watts. During the
        inspection, the transmitter output power was measured at 12.5 watts,
        which constitutes 134% of the authorized transmitter power output.

     d. 47 C.F.R. S 73.1870(a): "The licensee of each AM, FM, TV or Class A
        TV broadcast station must designate a person to serve as the
        station's chief operator."  At the time of inspection, there was no
        chief operator designation available

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, WVRM, Inc., 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
       tower owner. 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:
