                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 7, 2008

   By the District Director, Los Angeles Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to the County of Kern, California,
       registrant of antenna structure #  1204371 in  Bakersfield,

    2. On April 1, 2008, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles
       Office made an attempt to inspect  antenna structure #  1204371  in 
       Bakersfield, California, and observed the following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.57: "The owner of an antenna structure for which an
        Antenna Structure Registration Number has been obtained must notify
        the Commission within 24 hours of completion of construction (FCC
        Form 854-R) and/or dismantlement (FCC Form 854)." At the time of the
        inspection, no tower could be found at the location specified for
        antenna structure # 1204371. In a telephone call with a County of
        Kern employee on April 3, 2008, the agent was informed that the tower
        had been dismantled a few months earlier. However, as of April 3,
        2008, the Antenna Structure Registration database showed the tower's
        status as "Constructed" instead of "Dismantled."

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, the County of Kern, must
       submit a written statement concerning this matter within 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 an official of the  County of
       Kern. 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:

   Federal Communications Commission

   Los Angeles Office

    4. This Notice shall be sent by Certified Mail/Return Receipt Requested
       and regular mail to the County of Kern 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
