           NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABILITY FOR FORFEITURE

                                       Released: October 25, 2002
By the Enforcement Bureau, Atlanta Office:

                        I.  INTRODUCTION

     1.   In this  Notice of  Apparent Liability  for  Forfeiture 
(``NAL''), we find  Good Radio  Broadcasting Corporation  (``Good 
Radio'') apparently  liable for  a forfeiture  in the  amount  of 
three  thousand  dollars  ($3,000)   for  willful  and   repeated 
violation  of   Section  17.4(a)   of  the   Commission's   Rules 
(``Rules'').1 Specifically, we find Good Radio apparently  liable 
for  failing  to   register  its  antenna   structure  with   the 
Commission.


                         II.  BACKGROUND

     2.   On September 19, 2002, an agent of the FCC  Enforcement 
Bureau's Atlanta Office inspected the antenna structure of  radio 
station WDOG located at  33 01' 22" North  Latitude and 81  19' 
58" West Longitude in Allendale,  South Carolina.  The agent  was 
accompanied  by  the   President  of   Good  Radio   Broadcasting 
Corporation. The President of Good  Radio stated that Good  Radio 
owned the antenna structure.  The agent noted that the  structure 
was  painted  and  had  lighting;  however,  the  tower  was  not 
registered with  the Commission.   The  President of  Good  Radio 
stated the tower was not registered because he was unaware of the 
requirement to do so.


                        III.  DISCUSSION

     3.   Section 17.4(a) of the  Rules provides that,  effective 
July 1,  1996, owners  of any  existing antenna  structures  that 
require  notification  to  the  Federal  Aviation  Administration 
(``FAA'')  must  register  the  structure  with  the  Commission.  
Section 17.4(a)(2) of the Rules provides that, effective July  1, 
1998, owners  of  an antenna  structure  that had  been  assigned 
painting or lighting  requirements prior  to July  1, 1996,  must 
register the structure with the Commission.  Good Radio's antenna 
structure required notification to the FAA because the  structure 
exceeded 200 feet in height.  In addition, the structure had been 
assigned painting and  lighting requirements  by the  FCC on  the 
WDOG broadcast station license.  Therefore, Good Radio's  antenna 
structure required Commission registration.  As of September  19, 
2002, Good Radio failed to register its antenna structure.



     4.   Based on the  evidence before  us, we  find Good  Radio 
willfully2 and repeatedly3 violated Section 17.4(a) of the  Rules 
by failing to register its antenna structure with the Commission.

     5.   Pursuant to Section 1.80(b)(4) of the Rules,4 the  base 
forfeiture  amount  for  failing   to  file  required  forms   or 
information is  $3,000.   In assessing  the  monetary  forfeiture 
amount, we must also take into account the statutory factors  set 
forth in Section 503(b)(2)(D) of the Communications Act of  1934, 
as amended (``Act''),  which include  the nature,  circumstances, 
extent, and gravity  of the  violation, and with  respect to  the 
violator,  the  degree  of  culpability,  any  history  of  prior 
offenses, ability to pay, and  other such matters as justice  may 
require.5  Considering the entire record and applying the factors 
listed above, this case warrants a $3,000 forfeiture.

                      IV.  ORDERING CLAUSES

     6.   Accordingly, IT IS  ORDERED THAT,  pursuant to  Section 
503(b) of the  Act,6 and Sections  0.111, 0.311 and  1.80 of  the 
Rules,7 Good Radio Broadcasting Corporation is hereby NOTIFIED of 
this APPARENT LIABILITY FOR A  FORFEITURE in the amount of  three 
thousand dollars ($3,000) for  willful and repeated violation  of 
Section 17.4(a) of the Rules  by failing to register its  antenna 
structure with the Commission.

     7.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT, pursuant to Section 1.80 of 
the Rules, within thirty  days of the release  date of this  NAL, 
Good Radio Broadcasting Corporation SHALL PAY the full amount  of 
the proposed forfeiture or SHALL FILE a written statement seeking 
reduction or cancellation of the proposed forfeiture.

     8.   Payment of  the forfeiture  may be  made by  mailing  a 
check or similar instrument, payable to the order of the  Federal 
Communications Commission, to the Forfeiture Collection  Section, 
Finance  Branch,  Federal  Communications  Commission,  P.O.  Box 
73482, Chicago, Illinois 60673-7482.  The payment should note the 
NAL/Acct. No. and FRN referenced above.  Requests for payment  of 
the full amount of this NAL  under an installment plan should  be 
sent to:  Chief, Revenue  and Receivables  Operations Group,  445 
12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20554.8

     9.   The  response,  if  any,  must  be  mailed  to  Federal 
Communications Commission,  Office  of the  Secretary,  445  12th 
Street  SW,  Washington  DC  20554,  Attn:  Enforcement   Bureau-
Technical & Public Safety Division and MUST INCLUDE THE NAL/Acct. 
No. referenced above.  

     10.  The Commission will not consider reducing or  canceling 
a forfeiture in response  to a claim of  inability to pay  unless 
the petitioner  submits: (1)  federal tax  returns for  the  most 
recent  three-year  period;  (2)  financial  statements  prepared 
according to generally accepted accounting practices  (``GAAP''); 
or (3)  some  other  reliable and  objective  documentation  that 
accurately reflects  the petitioner's  current financial  status.  
Any claim  of inability  to pay  must specifically  identify  the 
basis for the claim by  reference to the financial  documentation 
submitted.

     11.  Under the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of  2002, 
Pub L. No.  107-198, 116 Stat.  729 (June 28,  2002), the FCC  is 
engaged in  a two-year  tracking process  regarding the  size  of 
entities involved  in forfeitures.   If you  qualify as  a  small 
entity and  if you  wish to  be  treated as  a small  entity  for 
tracking purposes, please  so certify  to us  within thirty  (30) 
days of this  NAL, either in  your response  to the NAL  or in  a 
separate filing  to be  sent  to the  Technical &  Public  Safety 
Division.   Your  certification  should  indicate  whether   you, 
including your parent  entity and its  subsidiaries, meet one  of 
the definitions  set forth  in  the list  provided by  the  FCC's 
Office of Communications Business Opportunities (OCBO) set  forth 
in Attachment  A  of this  Notice  of Apparent  Liability.   This 
information will  be  used  for  tracking  purposes  only.   Your 
response or  failure to  respond to  this question  will have  no 
effect on your  rights and responsibilities  pursuant to  Section 
503(b)  of  the  Communications  Act.   If  you  have   questions 
regarding any  of  the  information contained  in  Attachment  A,
