   Released: April 4, 2008

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

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Armstrong Utilities, Inc.
       ("Armstrong"), operator of a cable system in Koppel, Pennsylvania.

    2. On March 12, 2008, an agent of the Commission's Philadelphia Office
       inspected the public inspection file for Armstrong's cable system in
       Koppel, Pennsylvania and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 76.1701: " (a) Every cable television system shall keep and
   permit public inspection of a complete and orderly record (political file)
   of all requests for cablecast time made by or on behalf of a candidate for
   public office, together with an appropriate notation showing the
   disposition made by the system of such requests, and the charges made, if
   any, if the request is granted. The `disposition' includes the schedule of
   time purchased, when spots actually aired, the rates charged, and the
   classes of time purchased." Armstrong did not maintain a complete
   political file in the cable system's public inspection file. The public
   inspection file did not include the records of requests for cablecast time
   on the Armstrong cable system that were made to Comcast Spotlight, which
   handles the advertising insertions on the Armstrong cable system.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Armstrong 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
       cable operator. 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:
