                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: September 12, 2007

   By the District Director, Los Angeles Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to VIDA ABUNDANTE, licensee of radio
       station KJVA-LP in San Bernardino, CA.

    2. On August 13, 2007, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles
       office inspected radio station KJVA-LP located at San Bernardino, CA,
       and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.840: "The operating transmitter power output (TPO) of
        an LPFM station with an authorized TPO of more than ten watts must be
        maintained as near as practicable to its authorized TPO and may not
        be... greater that 105% of the maximum authorized TPO." When the Los
        Angeles agent inspected the station, the output power of the
        transmitter was observed to be 917 watts as opposed to 218 watts
        specified on the station authorization.

     b. 47 C.F.R S: 73.845: "Each LPFM licensee is responsible for
        maintaining and operating its broadcast station in a manner that
        complies with the technical rules set forth elsewhere in this part
        and in accordance with the terms of the station authorization. In the
        event that an LPFM station is operating in a manner that is not in
        compliance with the technical rules set forth elsewhere in this part,
        or the terms of the station authorization, broadcast operation must
        be terminated within three hours." When the Los Angeles agent
        inspected the station, it was found to be operating from 34DEG 09'
        32'' north latitude, 117DEG 18' 55'' west longitude, a location 1.06
        miles from that authorized by the station authorization.
        Additionally, the antenna in use was not as specified on the license,
        provided approximately 5dB of power gain which, when multiplied by
        the 917 watts TPO, resulted in an effective radiated power for the
        station of approximately 2900 watts, which is 29 times the level
        authorized by the station authorization.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, VIDA ABUNDANTE, must
       submit a written statement concerning this matter within 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
       VIDA ABUNDANTE. 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:
