By the Enforcement Bureau, Dallas Office:

                         I.  INTRODUCTION

     1.   In   this  Notice   of   Apparent  Liability   for 
Forfeiture  (``NAL''),  we  find  EICB-TV,  LLC  (``EICB''), 
licensee  of KUOT-CA  Class A  television station,  Oklahoma 
City, Oklahoma,  apparently liable  for a forfeiture  in the 
amount  of ten  thousand dollars  ($10,000) for  willful and 
repeated   violation  of   Section   73.3526(c)(1)  of   the 
Commission's  Rules  (``Rules'').1   Specifically,  we  find 
EICB-TV, LLC apparently liable for failure to make available 
for inspection all of the required material in the station's 
public inspection file.

                          II. BACKGROUND

     2.   On September 9, 2002, the FCC Enforcement Bureau's 
Dallas Field Office (``Dallas Office'') received a complaint 
alleging   KKCC-LP2  was   not   in   compliance  with   the 
Commission's Rules for Class A television stations.

     3.   On  January 13  and  15, 2003,  the Dallas  Office 
received  additional  information  alleging KKCC-LP  had  no 
studio as  required by  Class A rules,  no employees  in the 
Oklahoma City area, no records of children's programming, no 
transmitter checks, and no logs.

     4.   On  February 20,  2003, an  agent from  the Dallas 
Office inspected station KKCC-LP  at its main studio located 
at Eagle Heights  Church in Oklahoma City.   The public file 
was incomplete  in that  the file  was missing  all required 
items except  the station authorization and  applications to 
the Commission.

     5.   On  August  19, 2003,  an  agent  from the  Dallas 
Office  inspected KKCC-LP's  main  studio  at Eagle  Heights 
Church in  Oklahoma City.  The  public file was  missing the 
issues/programs lists, records concerning commercial limits, 
must-carry or  retransmission consent election, and  Class A 
TV continuing eligibility.

                       III. DISCUSSION

     6.   Section 73.3526(a)(2) of  the Rules3 requires that 
every permittee or licensee of a TV or Class A TV station in 
the   commercial  broadcast   services  maintain   a  public 
inspection file  containing the  material, relating  to that 
station,  described in  paragraphs  (e)(1) through  (e)(10), 
(e)(11),  (e)(13)  and  (e)(15) of  this  section.   Section 
73.3526(b) of the Rules4 requires the public inspection file 
be  maintained  at  the   station's  main  studio.   Section 
73.3526(c)(1) of  the Rules  requires the file  be available 
for public  inspection at  any time during  regular business 
hours.   On  February 20,  2003  and  August 19,  2003,  the 
complete  public  inspection  file  material  was  not  made 
available for  inspection during  regular business  hours at 
the KUOT-CA (formerly KKCC-LP) main studio.

     7.   Based  on the  evidence  before us,  we find  EICB 
willfully5 and repeatedly6 violated Section 73.3526(c)(1) of 
the Rules by failing to make available for inspection all of 
the  required material  in the  station's public  inspection 

     8.   Pursuant to Section 1.80(b)(4)  of the Rules,7 the 
base forfeiture amount for violation of public file rules is 
$10,000.  In  assessing the  monetary forfeiture  amount, we 
must also take into account  the statutory factors set forth 
in Section  503(b)(2)(D) of the Communications  Act of 1934, 
as   amended   (``Act''),    which   include   the   nature, 
circumstances,  extent, and  gravity of  the violation,  and 
with respect to the violator, the degree of culpability, any 
history of  prior offenses, ability  to pay, and  other such 
matters  as justice  may require.8   Considering the  entire 
record  and applying  the  factors listed  above, this  case 
warrants a $10,000 forfeiture.

                       IV. ORDERING CLAUSES

     9.   Accordingly,  IT  IS  ORDERED  THAT,  pursuant  to

material in the station's public inspection file.
