                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: August  14, 2009

   By the District Director, Denver Office, Western Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Wyomedia Corp. ("Wyomedia"),
       registrant of antenna structure # 1001101 in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

    2. On April 28, 2009, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's  Denver Office
       inspected antenna structure # 1001101 located south of Cheyenne
       Wyoming, off US Route 87 and 0.6 miles southeast of Speer Road and
       observed the following violations:

    a. 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." During the inspection, the agents
       observed that there was no antenna structure registration number
       posted at or near the base of the antenna structure.

    b. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.21: "Antenna structures shall be painted and lighted
       when . . . [t]hey exceed 60.96 meters (200 feet) in height above
       ground or they require special aeronautical study." The painting and
       lighting specifications for antenna structure # 1001101 require that
       the structure comply with FCC Paragraphs A1, B, C and H. Paragraph B
       requires light units located at the top of the structure and that this
       "complement of units shall emit a white high intensity light and
       produce an effective intensity of not less than 200,000 candelas
       (daytime) uniformly about the antenna structure... [t]he effective
       intensity shall be reduced to approximately 20,000 candelas at
       twilight, and to approximately 2,000 candelas at night." Paragraph C
       requires the same for the complement of units located at approximately
       the one-half level of the structure. Paragraph H requires that "all
       high and medium intensity lights shall be synchronized to flash
       simultaneously at 40 pulses per minute." During the inspection, the
       agents observed that one of the three high intensity strobes was
       extinguished at the one-half level, that the high intensity lights on
       the antenna structure were not synchronized to flash simultaneously at
       40 pulses per minute, and failed to switch from 200,000 candelas to
       20,000 candelas, at twilight, and to 2,000 candelas at night.

    c. 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: (a)(1) 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, (2) 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." An investigation
       revealed that the automatic alarm system used for this antenna
       structure did not detect or provide indication that the tower lighting
       was not operating in the correct mode.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Wyomedia 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 Wyomedia
       Corp. 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:
