                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

                                                     Released: April 23, 2007

   By the District Director, Columbia Field Office, Northeast, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Case Tucker Communications, Inc.
       ("Case Tucker"), registrant of antenna structure # 1061173 in Upper
       Marlboro, Maryland.

    2. On January 29, 2007, an agent from the Commission's Columbia Field
       Office inspected antenna structure # 1061173 located East of Rt. 301
       in Upper Marlboro, Maryland and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S 17.17(a) provides that structures authorized prior to July 1,
   1996, "may retain their present painting and lighting specifications, so
   long as the overall height or site coordinates do not change." Case
   Tucker's antenna structure #1061173 is 152 meters and was constructed in
   1980. The FCC's ASR database specifies the structure is required to have
   red obstruction lighting and aviation orange and white painting as
   detailed in FCC Form 715/715A, Paragraphs 1, 3, 4, 13, and 21. During the
   inspection, the agent observed that the antenna structure was equipped
   with a white strobe lighting system rather than red obstruction lighting
   and painting. In order to come into compliance with the Commission's
   rules, Case Tucker must: (1) obtain a new FAA "no hazard" determination
   indicating that the current lighting system is permitted and then submit a
   modified antenna structure registration to reflect the new "no hazard"
   determination, or (2) submit a modified registration if a new FAA "no
   hazard" determination already has been obtained.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Case Tucker must submit a
       written statement concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of
       release of this Notice. The response must fully explain each
       violation, must contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to
       correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and should include a
       time line for completion of pending corrective action(s). The response
       must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or officer of
       Case Tucker, with personal knowledge of the matter. 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

   Federal Communications Commission

       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
