		Released:  March 2, 2017

By the Regional Director, Region Three, Enforcement Bureau:

 This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of
 the Commission's rules (Rules) to Ondas De Vida Network, Inc. (Ondas De
 Vida), licensee of FM translator station K284CD, Quartz Hill, California
 (Facility ID No. 141344) (Station).  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 February 22, 2017 an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles
 Field Office inspected the Station operating in Palmdale, California,
 and observed the following violation(s):

	   47 C.F.R. § 1.903(a):  "General rule. Stations in the Wireless
	   Radio Services must be used and operated only in accordance
	   with the rules applicable to their particular service as set
	   forth in this title and with a valid authorization granted
	   by the Commission under the provisions of this part, except
	   as specified in paragraph (b) of this section."  During the
	   inspection on February 22, 2017 the agent observed the Station
	   operating from a unauthorized location with the geographic
	   coordinates of 34° 30' 53"	North Latitude, 118° 05' 12" West
	   Longitude.  This location is several miles distant from the
	   location authorized on the Station's license or the currently
	   authorized construction permit.  In addition, during the
	   February 22, 2017 inspection, the agent observed the Station
	   operating with a Crown FM-30 transmitter, which indicated
	   a transmitter power output (TPO) of 15 Watts.  Based on the
	   antenna location and configuration, the agent estimated the
	   station operated with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 60
	   Watts, which exceeds the 8 Watts ERP authorized in the License
	   and the 10 Watts ERP authorized in the Construction Permit.

	   47 C.F.R. § 74.1231(b) "An FM translator may be used for
	   the purpose of retransmitting the signals of a primary AM or
	   FM radio broadcast station or another translator station the
	   signal of which is received directly through space, converted,
	   and suitably amplified, and originating programming to the
	   extent authorized in paragraphs (f), (g), and (h) of this
	   section."  At the time of the monitoring and inspection, the
	   Station was not transmitting the programming of the associated
	   primary station specified in the License (KODV(FM), Barstow
	   California (Facility ID No. 122214)).  Instead, the agent
	   found that the Station was  transmitting original programming
	   from another source for extended periods of time.

 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, Ondas De Vida
 must submit a written statement concerning this matter within twenty

 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 Ondas De Vida
 to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
 under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of
 Ondas De Vida with personal knowledge of the representations provided
 in Ondas De Vida's response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the
 information therein, and confirming that all of the information requested
