                MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER

     Adopted:  July 23, 2002            Released: July 25, 
2002

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

                               
     1.   In this Memorandum  Opinion and Order (``Order''), 
we  grant in  part  and deny  in  part C.W.H.  Broadcasting, 
Inc.'s     (``C.W.H.     Broadcasting'')    petition     for 
reconsideration of a Forfeiture Order that we issued to it,1 
imposing  a  $3,500  forfeiture for  willful  violations  of 
Sections 17.4(a)(2), 17.51(a), and 73.49 of the Commission's 
Rules (``Rules'').2   The noted violations  involved antenna 
structure related violations.  As explained below, we reduce 
the $3,500 forfeiture to $500.

     2.   Posing  no  challenge  to   our  finding  that  it 
violated the Commission's Rules, C.W.H. Broadcasting, in its 
petition  for reconsideration  requests cancellation  of the 
forfeiture.  In  its request, C.W.H. Broadcasting  details a 
number of proposed repairs to WHNY(AM) that are unrelated to 
the subject violations and  elaborates on other information, 
some  personal  in  nature,  which  it  first  presented  in 
response   to  the   Notice   of   Apparent  Liability   for 
Forfeiture.3  After  reviewing the  particular circumstances 
presented  in  this  case,  in accord  with  the  discretion 
provided to us  by Section 504(b) of  the Communications Act 
of 1934,  as amended,4 (``Act'') and  implemented by Section 
1.80(i) of  the Rules,5  we conclude  that reduction  of the 
$3,500 forfeiture to $500 is warranted in this case. 
 
     3.   Accordingly,  IT  IS  ORDERED  that,  pursuant  to 
Section  1.106 of  the Rules,6  C.W.H. Broadcasting,  Inc.'s 
Petition for Reconsideration IS  GRANTED TO THE EXTENT NOTED 
HEREIN AND DENIED IN ALL OTHER RESPECTS.

     4.   Payment of  the $500  forfeiture shall be  made in 
the manner provided for in  Section 1.80 of the Rules within 
30 days of the release of this Order.7  If the forfeiture is 
not  paid  within the  period  specified,  the case  may  be 
referred  to  the  Department   of  Justice  for  collection 
pursuant to Section 504(a) of the Act.8  Payment may be made 
by mailing  a check  or similar  instrument, payable  to the 
order  of  the  Federal Communications  Commission,  to  the 
Federal Communications Commission,  P.O. Box 73482, Chicago, 
Illinois  60673-7482.  The  payment should  note ``NAL/Acct. 
No.  200232620001''  and  ``FRN:  0006-3820-48''  referenced 
above.  Requests for full  payment under an installment plan 
should be sent to: Chief, Revenue and Receivables Operations 
Group, 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20554.9

     5.   IT IS  FURTHER ORDERED that  a copy of  this Order 
shall by  sent by certified mail,  return receipt requested, 
to Charles W. Holt, WHNY  Radio, P.O. Box 1223, 1114 Highway 
570 East, McComb, Mississippi 39648.
