                              ORDER

Adopted:  March 4, 2003                      Released:  March  6, 
2003

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

     1.   In  this  Order,  we  set  aside  a  Forfeiture  Order1 
          issuing a $10,000 forfeiture to Verizon Wireless  (VAW) 
          LLC  (``Verizon Wireless''),  the registered  owner  of 
          Antenna   Structure  #1001987   in  Colorado   Springs, 
          Colorado.  The  Forfeiture Order affirmed  a Notice  of 
          Apparent Liability for Forfeiture (``NAL'')2 issued  to 
          Verizon Wireless  on October 29,  2002 for willful  and 
          repeated violation of  Sections 17.23 and 17.50 of  the 
          Commission's  Rules  (``Rules'').  3  The   Enforcement 
          Bureau (``Bureau'')  issued the Forfeiture Order  based 
          on its belief  that Verizon Wireless had neither  filed 
          a timely response  to the NAL nor paid the  forfeiture.  
          However, subsequent  to the release  of the  Forfeiture 
          Order,  it has  come  to the  Bureau's  attention  that 
          Verizon  Wireless paid  the forfeiture  on December  2, 
          2002.

     2.   ACCORDINGLY, IT IS ORDERED  that, pursuant to  Sections 
0.111, 0.311  and  1.113  of the  Rules, 4  the Forfeiture  Order 
released on January 30, 2003 IS HEREBY SET ASIDE.

     3.        IT IS FURTHER  ORDERED that a  copy of this  Order 
shall be  sent by  first class  mail and  certified mail,  return 
receipt requested,  to  Verizon Wireless  (VAW)  LLC,  Attention:  
Carol King, 30 Independence Boulevard, Warren, NJ 07059.
