                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: January 12, 2012

   By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent  Office, Western Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a  Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to MMC Radio LLC, registrant of
       antenna structure #1063079 in Anchorage, Alaska.

    2. On January 5, 2012, at approximately 9:15 a.m.,  an agent of the
       Enforcement Bureau's  Anchorage Resident Agent  Office inspected 
       antenna structure # 1063079  located off of Tower Road in Anchorage,
       Alaska, and observed the following violations:

   a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.51(a): "All red obstruction lighting shall be exhibited
   from sunset to sunrise unless otherwise specified." During the inspection,
   the agent observed the antenna structure's red obstruction lighting at
   approximately the 3/4 level to be non-functioning.

   b. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.17(a) "The  requirements found in S:  17.23 relating to
   the painting and lighting of antenna structures shall not apply to those
   structures authorized prior to July 1, 1996. Previously authorized
   structures may retain their present painting and lighting specifications,
   so long as the overall structure height or site coordinates do not
   change."  The FCC's antenna structure registration for antenna structure #
   1063079 requires painting and lighting requirements as specified by FCC
   Paragraphs 1, 3, 11, 21.  Paragraph 11 requires that "[a]t the approximate
   midpoint of the overall height of the antenna structure, there shall be
   installed at least two 116- or 125-watt lamps (A21/TS) enclosed in
   aviation red obstruction light globes. Each light shall be mounted so as
   to insure unobstructed visibility of at least one light at each level from
   aircraft at any normal angle of approach."  At the time of the inspection,
   the agent did not observe the required midpoint lights installed on the
   antenna structure.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, MCC Radio, LLC,  must
