                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 1, 2007

   By the District Director, Philadelphia Office, Northeast Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Capstar Radio Operating Company
       ("Capstar"), the owner of antenna structure 1026588 in Whitehall,

    2. On March 5, 2007, at 6:46 p.m., agents from the Commission's
       Philadelphia Office inspected antenna structure 1026588 located at
       1183 Mickley Road, Whitehall, Pennsylvania and observed the following

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 17.51(a): "All red obstruction lighting shall be
        exhibited from sunset to sunrise unless otherwise specified." During
        the inspection, the agent observed that one of the two steady burning
        red obstruction lights was extinguished at both the two-thirds level
        and the one-third level of the antenna structure.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 17.47: "The owner of any antenna structure which is
        registered with the Commission and has been assigned lighting
        specifications referenced in this part shall make an observation of
        the antenna structure's lights at least once each 24 hours either
        visually or by observing an automatic properly maintained indicator
        designed to register any failure of such lights, to insure that all
        such lights are functioning properly as required; or alternatively,
        shall provide and properly maintain an automatic alarm system
        designed to detect any failure of such lights and to provide
        indication of such failure to the owner." Capstar failed to make
        observations at least once each 24 hours of the steady burning red
        obstruction lights at the two-thirds level and one-third level of
        antenna structure 1026588. A Capstar representative reported that it
        made daily observations, both visually and by observing an automatic
        indicator, of only the flashing red obstruction lighting on the top
        level of the antenna structure.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Capstar Radio Operating
       Company 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 the tower owner. 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:

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Capstar Radio Operating Company at its
       address of record.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       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
