    1. This is a  Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section

       licensee of radio station KDWN in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    2. On June 21, 2010, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's  Los Angeles
       office inspected  KDWN's transmitter site  located on the NE corner of
       W. Galleria Drive and McCormick Road in Henderson, Nevada, and
       observed the following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.49: "Antenna towers having radio frequency potential
        at the base (series fed, folded unipole, and insulated base antennas)
        must be enclosed within effective locked fences or other enclosures.
        Ready access must be provided to each antenna tower base for meter
        reading and maintenance purposes at all times. However, individual
        tower fences need not be installed if the towers are contained within
        a protective property fence." The agent observed a hole in the
        chain-link fence enclosing the center tower (ASR # 1011960), which
        had been caused by recent vandalism. The agent also observed a "High
        Level Radio Frequency Energy Area" sign lying on the ground next to
        the hole in the fence.

       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules,  KDWN License
       Limited Partnership  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 KDWN License Limited Partnership.  All
