   Released: December 16, 2009

   By the Resident Agent. Norfolk Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules ("Rules"), to Educational Media
       Foundation, licensee of radio station WKVK.

    2. On November 24, 2009, an agent of the Commission's Norfolk Office of
       the Enforcement Bureau inspected radio station WKVK located in
       Leasburg, North Carolina in response to a complaint from the Federal
       Aviation Administration about interrference to navigation aids at the
       Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Station WKVK is authorized to
       transmit on 106.7 MHz to the community of Semora, North Carolina from
       antenna structure number 1033162, located at latitude 36 25 08.0 north
       and longitude 079 11 48.0 west. During inspection of the station
       facilities, the agent observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 73.317(b): "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..." On several frequencies
   removed from the carrier frequency by 600kHz or more, emissions were
   suppressed by less than the 80db. For example, the amplitude of one
   emission on a frequency 2.8MHz removed from the carrier frequency was
   suppressed by only 30.0db.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Rules, Educational Media Foundation,
       must submit a written statement concerning this matter within thirty
       (30) 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).
       Specifically, pursuant to Section 73.1590(d) of the Rules,  provide
       all of the data required by paragraph (b) of the same section,
       together with the manufacturer names, model and serial numbers of each
       transmission system component, and include information that clearly
       depicts compliance with Section 73.317 of the Rules. In addition,
       submit a schedule of the period and a description of the procedures
       Educational Media Foundation will use for future transmission system
       inspections pursuant to Section 73.1580 of the Rules.  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:
