action if warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the violation noted 
2. On August 12, 2013, a Notice of Violation (August NOV), was issued to KEMI, for 
violations noted during a June 18, 2013, inspection.  The August NOV was sent via United States Postal 
Service (USPS) certified and first class mailings to KEMI at its address of record at that time.  The 
certified envelope returned to the Anchorage Office unopened/unclaimed, on September 9, 2013.  No 
response was received to the August NOV.  On September 12, 2013, a Warning for non-response was 
sent to the President of KEMI, at that time, advising that a response to the August NOV was required and 
included a copy of the August NOV. The Warning was also sent via USPS certified and first class 
mailings.  Neither the certified nor first class envelopes where returned to the Anchorage Office, however

On November 7, 2013, an NOV (November NOV), again for non-response, and citing 47 C.F.R. §
73.1015, was sent via USPS first class and certified mailings to the address of record, at that time. On 
December 2, 2013, the November NOV certified mailing returned to the Anchorage Office 
unopened/unclaimed.  Subsequent to the November NOV being returned, the Enforcement Bureau 
requested of the Media Bureau to place a “renewal hold” on the KEMI application for renewal of the 
station license.
Therefore citing the following violation:
