	Released:  November 18, 2016

By the Regional Director, Region Two, Enforcement Bureau:

 This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
 of the Commission's rules (Rules) to WBVL-LP, a low-power FM operator in
 Orlando, Florida.  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 noted herein.

 On Thursday, October 27, 2016, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's
 Tampa Office investigated WBVL's operations and observed the following

		47 C.F.R. § 73.508(b):  "The transmitter and associated
		transmitting equipment of each noncommercial educational
		FM station and LPFM station licensed for transmitter
		power output above 10 watts must be designed, constructed
		and operated in accordance with § 73.317."  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 + 10Log10 (Power, in watts) dB below the
		level of the unmodulated carrier, or 80 dB, whichever is
		the lesser attenuation."  WBVL-LP is licensed to operate
		at a maximum Effective Radiated Power (ERP) of 89 Watts.
		Thus, WBVL-LP is required under Sections 73.508(b) and
		73.317(d) of the Commission's rules to attenuate spurious
		emissions appearing more than 600 kHz from the carrier
		by at least 62.49 dB.  The Enforcement Bureau's agent
		observed spurious emissions from WBVL-LP's transmitter
		at power levels greatly in excess of the limit for
		such emissions determined pursuant to Section 73.317(d)
		of the Commission's rules.

 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, WBVL-LP
 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 WBVL-LP to
 support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
 under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer
 of WBVL-LP, with personal knowledge of the representations provided in
 WBVL-LP's response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the information
 therein, and confirming that all of the information requested by this
 Notice which is in WBVL-LP'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
		     Office of Region Two Director
		     3600 Hiram-Lithia Springs Rd.
		     Powder Springs, GA, 30127

 This Notice shall be sent to WBVL-LP at its address of record.
