                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: July 7, 2008

   By the District Director, Dallas 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 Double O Texas Corporation, licensee
       of radio station KKCN in Ballinger, Texas.

    2. On May 13, 2008, an agent of the Commission's Dallas Office of the
       Enforcement Bureau inspected radio station KKCN located in Rowena,
       Texas, and observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.317(a): "FM broadcast stations employing transmitters
        authorized after January 1, 1960, must maintain the bandwidth
        occupied by their emissions in accordance with the specification
        detailed below. FM broadcast stations employing transmitters
        installed or type accepted before January 1, 1960, must achieve the
        highest degree of compliance with these specifications practicable
        with their existing equipment. In either case, should harmful
        interference to other authorized stations occur, the licensee shall
        correct the problem promptly or cease operation." A spurious emission
        was noted from the KKCN transmitter on 104.8 MHz which would cause
        problems with the reception in the San Angelo, Texas area of KLDE
        licensed to Eldorado, Texas.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.317(d): "Any emission appearing on a frequency
        removed from the carrier by more than 600 kHz must be attenuated at
        least 43 + 10 Log10 (Power, in watts) dB below the level of the
        unmodulated carrier, or 80 dB, whichever is the lesser attenuation."
        The output of the KKCN transmitter had spurious emissions attenuated
        less than required from the carrier as follows: 104.8 MHz attenuated
        60.0 dB and 101.4 MHz attenuated 61.1.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Double O Texas
       Corporation, 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 address:

   Federal Communications Commission

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Double O Texas Corporation at its address
       of record.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       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.
