   1. This is a  Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
   1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to the  University of Alaska, On Behalf of
   U of AK,  Fairbanks,  licensee of FM noncommercial educational radio
   station KSUA in Fairbanks, Alaska.

   2. On May 15, 2008, at approximately 11:00 a.m., agents of the Enforcement
   Bureau's  Anchorage Resident Agent  Office attempted to inspect FM radio
   station KSUA in Fairbanks, Alaska,  and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.1225(a): "The licensee of a broadcast station shall
        make the station available for inspection  by representatives of the
        FCC during the station's business hours, or at any time it is in
        operation."  The agents  attempted to inspect the KSUA main studio, 
        situated on the second floor of the Butrovich Building, located on
        the University of Alaska's Fairbanks campus. The agents were unable
        to inspect the station because there was no staff at the studio.

        available for public inspection at any time during regular business
        hours." At the time of the attempted inspection, the public
        inspection file was not accessible to the public because there was no
        staff at the KSUA main studio.
