In the Matter of


Alaska Integrated Media, Inc.
                                               File No.:


Licensee of FM Broadcast Station KZND-FM
                                                         NOV No.:
Houston, Alaska

Released: March 13, 2015
By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent Office, Western Region,
Enforcement Bureau:
* This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
of the Commission's rules (Rules), to Alaska Integrated Media, Inc.,
(AIM), licensee of FM broadcast radio station KZND-FM, with Houston,
Alaska as its community of license.  Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the
Rules, issuance of this Notice does not preclude the Enforcement Bureau
from further action if warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent
Liability for Forfeiture for the violation(s) noted herein.
* On March 4, 2015 and March 5, 2015, in response to a complaint of an
unauthorized FM broadcast translator operating in Eagle River, Alaska on
93.3 MHz, an agent from the Enforcement Bureau's Anchorage Office, using
direction finding and signal strength techniques, located the signal on
93.3 MHz, as well as a signal on 96.1 MHz, to the KZND-FM transmitter.
The agent observed the following violations:
        ** 47 C.F.R. § 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."  At the time of inspection, the agent noted that
        KZND-FM operations on 94.7 MHz had spurious emissions on 93.3
        MHz and 96.1 MHz at levels approximately -50 dB and -44 dB,
        respectively, below the fundamental frequency that were not
        attenuated as required.
        ** 47 C.F.R. § 73.1350(a): "Each licensee is responsible for
        maintaining and operating its broadcast station in a manner
        ... in accordance with the terms of the station authorization."
        The most recent license engineering data for KZND-FM specifies
        that its authorized antenna radiation center above ground level
        (RCAGL) is 20 meters.  On-scene observations revealed that the
        station's current antenna RCAGL is approximately 36 meters.
* Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
amended, and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional information
concerning the violations and any remedial actions taken.  Therefore, AIM
must submit a written statement concerning this matter within twenty (20)
days of release of this Notice.  The response (i) must fully explain each
violation, including all relevant surrounding facts and circumstances,
(ii) must contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to correct
each violation and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must include a time
line for completion of any pending corrective action(s).  The response
must be complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by reference to
other communications or answers to other notices.
* In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct AIM to
support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer
of AIM with personal knowledge of the representations provided in its
response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the information therein,
and confirming that all of the information requested by this Notice
which is in the licensee's possession, custody, control, or knowledge
has been produced.  To knowingly and willfully make any false statement
or conceal any material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by
fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
* 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
Anchorage Office
P.O. Box 231949
Anchorage, AK 99523-1949
* This Notice shall be sent to Alaska Integrated Media, Inc., at its
address of record.
* 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.
