                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: September  27, 2012

   By the District Director, Denver Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's Rules, to Winton Road Broadcasting Co., LLC
       (Winton Road),  licensee of radio station KVFC  in Cortez, Colorado. 
       Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Commission's Rules, issuance of
       this NOV does not preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action
       if warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for
       Forfeiture for the violations noted herein.

    2. On August 23 and 24, 2012, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Denver
       Office inspected Station KVFC  located at Cortez, Colorado, and
       observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: Section: 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." At
        the time of the inspection, the agent found that the KVFC transmitter
        coordinates were over 0.5 mile east from the actual center of its
        two-tower AM directional array which utilizes Antenna Structure
        Registration #'s 1053153 and 1053154.  The licensed NAD27 coordinates
        for KVFC are N37-o 20' 58"  W108-o 32' 29".

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: Section: 73.49: "Antenna 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." At the time of
        inspection the base fence for Antenna Structure 1053154 was missing
        boards on the east and north sides, and the south  side was leaning
        into the tower space allowing easy access to the tower base.
