                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: January 9, 2008

   By the Resident Agent, San Juan Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to International Broadcasting Corp,
       licensee of radio station WCHQ in Quebradillas, PR.

    2. On December 5, 2007, agents of the Commission's San Juan Office
       inspected radio station WCHQ's transmitter site located in San
       Sebastian, PR, and observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.49: towers having radio frequency potential at the
        base (series fed, folded unipole, and insulated base antennas) must
        be enclosed within effective locked fences or other enclosures. Ready
        access must be provided to each antenna tower base for meter reading
        and maintenance purposes at all times. However, individual tower
        fences need not be installed if the towers are contained within a
        protective property fence." Although there was an effective locked
        fence, there was no ready access to the bases of the two array
        antenna structure, due to significant weed and grass overgrowth.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1350(a): Each licensee is responsible for maintaining
        and operating its broadcast station in a manner which complies with
        the technical rules set forth elsewhere in this part and in
        accordance with the terms of the station authorization." During the
        inspection, the licensee admitted that it could not adjust the
        transmitter power levels for the past two months. Accordingly, the
        station has been operating at daytime power levels at night, because
        it could not increase its power to the authorized nighttime level.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, International
       Broadcasting Corp., 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, and mailed to the following

   Federal Communications Commission

    4. This Notice shall be sent to International Broadcasting Corp. at its

       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
