1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the 
Commission’s rules (Rules)
to International Aerospace Solutions, Inc., licensee of Station KTHO (AM), 
South Lake Tahoe, California. 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 violations noted herein.
2. On March 28, 2017, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau’s San Francisco Office 
attempted to inspected Station KTHO (AM) in South Lake Tahoe, California, and observed violations of 
the following Rules:
a. 47 CFR § 1.5 (a): “Each licensee shall furnish the Commission with 
an address to be used by the Commission in serving documents or 
directing correspondence to that licensee.  Unless any licensee 
advises the Commission to the contrary, the address contained in the 
licensee’s most recent application will be used by the Commission 
for this purpose.” At the time of inspection, the official mailing 
address as listed in the Commission records was incorrect. The 
licensee must submit a “Change in Official Mailing Address for 
Broadcast Station” form.

Federal Communications Commission
73.1125 (also known as the “Main Studio Rule”) to require, among 
other things, that a licensee maintain a “meaningful management and 
staff presence” at its main studio. Specifically, the Commission has 
found that a main studio “must, at a minimum, maintain full-time 
managerial and full-time staff personnel.”  At the time of inspection 
there were no employees, and no managerial or staff presence, at the 
location that was specified by the licensee as the main studio. There 
had been no employee presence for several hours.  The agent called 
the station at its specified phone number several times but no one 
representing the station answered the calls.
c. 47 CFR § 73.1225(a): “The licensee of a broadcast station shall
make the station available for inspection by representatives of the 
FCC during the station’s business hours, or any time the station is in 
operation.”  The Commission agent was unable to conduct an 
inspection because there was no staff or managerial presence at the
