for review filed by Page-A-Phone, Inc. ("Page-A-Phone"), licensee 

of Stations WRV927 and WXR916, of the Forfeiture Order1 issued by 

the Enforcement Bureau in  this proceeding.  Pursuant to  Section 

503(b) of  the  Communications Act  of  1934, as  amended  (``the 

Act'')2, and  Section  1.80  of  the  Commission's  Rules  (``the 

Rules'') the Enforcement Bureau  found Page-A-Phone liable for  a 

monetary forfeiture in the amount of $1,500 for willful violation 

of Section 1.949 of the Rules by failing to file license  renewal 

applications for paging Stations WRV927  and WXR916 prior to  the 

expiration of the authorizations for the stations.  

     2.   The Forfeiture  Order  issued in  this  proceeding  was 

released on November  3, 2000. Pursuant   to Section 1.115(d)  of 

the Rules, Page-A-Phone had 30 days, ending on December 4,  2000, 

to file its application for review of the Forfeiture Order.   The 

Commission did not receive Page-A-Phone's application for  review 

until May 24, 2001.  Page-A-Phone offers no explanation as to why 

it could not file  its application for  review within the  30-day 

filing period.  Therefore, Page-A-Phone's application for  review 

is dismissed because it was not timely filed.
