   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 Clear Channel Broadcasting, Inc.,
       registrant of antenna structure numbers 1015108, 1015109 and 1015110 
       in  Bakersfield, California.

    2. On April 2, 2008, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles
       Office inspected  antenna structure numbers 1015108, 1015109 and
       1015110  in  Bakersfield, California, 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." The
        antenna structure registration specifications for each of the antenna
        structures include FCC Paragraph 11, which requires at least two red
        steady burning lights at the approximate midpoint of the overall
        height of each of the antenna structures. A nighttime observation on
        April 2, 2008, revealed that only one red obstruction light was
        displayed at the midpoint of each antenna structure.

       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Clear Channel

       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 a
       principal or officer of Clear Channel Broadcasting, Inc. All replies
       and documentation sent in response to this Notice should be marked
