                       NOTICE OF VIOLATION

     1.  The FCC's Dallas Office has determined that you, as  the 
registered owner (#1217957) and licensed user (WPGE757,  WPHV240, 
WPKG738, WPKT491,  WPRT499 &  WPWU762), are  responsible for  the 
following violations  of  FCC  Rules  regarding  your  authorized 
transmitter location and registered antenna structure located  in 
the Stinnett, Texas area at or near geographical coordinates  35 
50' 39''N / 101 26' 47''W. 

a. 47 C.F.R.  1.923(c): Antenna locations: . . . Geographical 
   coordinates, referenced to NAD83, must be specified in 
   degrees, minutes, and seconds to the nearest second of 
   latitude and longitude. Station licenses WPGE757, WPHV240, 
   WPKG738, WPKT491, WPRT499 & WPWU762 (and antenna structure 
   registration 1217597) list the geographical coordinates as 
   35 50' 45''N / 101 26' 14''W.  VIOLATION: On May 29, 2003, 
   the transmitter site for these authorized stations was 
   determined to be at or near geographical coordinates 35 50' 
   39''N / 101 26' 47''W, a disparity of approximately six 
   seconds of latitude and 33 seconds of longitude (a distance 
   of approximately 2100 feet).

b. 47 C.F.R.  17.50: Antenna structures requiring painting 
   under this part shall be cleaned or repainted as often as 
   necessary to maintain good visibility (of the required bands 
   of paint).  Antenna structure registration 1217597 lists the 
   structure as 97.5 meters in height with a requirement to be 
   painted and lit in accordance with FCC paragraphs 1, 3, 12, 
   and 21.  VIOLATION: On May 29, 2003, you had failed to 
   repaint this structure as often as necessary to maintain good 
   visibility.  The painting on this antenna structure was 
   extremely deteriorated reducing the visibility of the 
   structure and obscuring the bands of aviation orange and 
   white paint. 

     2.  As the  antenna structure owner  and licensed user,  you 
are ultimately responsible for  compliance with the  Commission's 
Rules governing antenna structures.1

     3.  Pursuant to Section  1.89 of the Commission's Rules,  47 
C.F.R.  1.89, you must submit a written response to this  Notice 
to the address in the letterhead within 20 days of the release of 
this Notice.  Include a statement of the specific action(s) taken 
to correct and  preclude recurrence  of each  violation.  If  you 
have not completed all corrective actions by the time your  reply 
is due, provide the date you will complete each action.  Mark all 
replies and documentation with the file number specified above.
     4.  Failure to respond to this Notice constitutes a separate 
violation that could  result in  additional penalties,  including 
monetary forfeiture.  Any  statement or  information you  provide 
may be used by the Commission to determine if further enforcement 
action is required.
