                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 13, 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 Radio Representatives Inc.,
       registrant of antenna structure numbers  1247050 and 1247055  in 
       Bakersfield, California.

    2. On April 3, 2008, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Los Angeles
       Office inspected  antenna structure numbers  1247050 and 1247055  in 
       Bakersfield, California, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.4(b): "[E]ach owner of a proposed structure referred
        to in paragraphs (a)(1) or (a)(3) of this section must submit a valid
        FAA determination of "no hazard." In order to be considered valid by
        the Commission, the FAA determination of `no hazard' must not have
        expired prior to the date on which FCC Form 854 is received by the
        Commission." The antenna structure registrations for both antenna
        structures list FAA studies which expired on July 5, 2006, and were
        terminated. More recent FAA information reveals that the most recent
        study for each antenna structure was completed in 2007.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.4(g): "...the Antenna Structure Registration Number
        must be displayed in a conspicuous place so that it is readily
        visible near the base of the antenna structure." At the time of the
        inspection, no numbers were observed at the base of the antenna

     c. 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, a contractor at the site informed the agent that
        construction of the antenna structures had been completed months
        earlier. However, the FCC's Antenna Structure Registration database
        shows the antenna structures' status as "Granted" instead of

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Radio Representatives
       Inc., 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 a principal or officer of
       Radio Representatives Inc., All replies and documentation sent in
       response to this Notice should be marked with the File No. and NOV No.
