                                             Released:  April 19, 

By the District Director, Dallas Office, South Central Region, 
Enforcement Bureau:

     This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to 
Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules,1 to Team Radio L.L.C..

     On February 22 and 23, 2005, an agent of the Commission's 
Dallas Office conducted an  inspection of radio station KOKP 
located near, Perry, Oklahoma. During the inspection the 
station's antenna array, consisting of structures ASR # 1237030, 
1237031, 1237033 and 1237035, was also inspected. The following 
violations were noted:

  5.a.      47 C.F.R.  17.22:     ``Whenever painting or 
            lighting is required, the Commission will 
            generally assign specifications in accordance 
            with the FAA Advisory Circulars.''  The ASRs 
            for structures numbered 1237030, 1237031, 
            1237033 and 1237035 specify that the towers are 
            required to be painted and lighted in 
            accordance with FCC Paragraphs 1,3,11,21.  
            Paragraph 1 requires painting with alternate 
            bands of aviation orange and white, and 
            Paragraphs 3 and 11 requires red obstruction 
            lighting.  During the inspection, the agent 
            observed that antenna structures 1237030 and 
            1237033 did not conform to these 
            specifications.  The structures were painted, 
            but were not equipped with red obstruction 
            lighting for nighttime as required.

  5.b.      47 C.F.R.  73.1560(a)(2):  ``Whenever the 
            transmitter of an AM station cannot be placed 
            into the specified operating mode at the time 
            required, transmissions of the station must be 
            immediately terminated.  However, if the 
            radiated field at any bearing or elevation does 
            not exceed that permitted for that time of day, 
            operation in the mode with the lesser radiated 
            field may continue under the notification 
            procedures of paragraph (d) of this section''. 
            On February 23, 2005, Radio Station KOKP failed 
            to switch from daytime mode and power at sunset 
            as required, and continued transmitting with 
            radiated field values in excess of that 
            authorized under the station's license.
     Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 
1934, as amended,2 and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, 
Team Radio L.L.C., must submit a written statement concerning 
this matter within (20) days of release of this Notice.  The 
response must fully explain each violation, must contain a 
statement of the specific action(s) taken to correct each 
violation and preclude recurrence, and should include a time line 
for completion of pending corrective action(s).  The response 
must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or officer 
of Team Radio L.L.C. with personal knowledge of the matter.  All 
replies and documentation sent in response to this Notice should 
be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and 
mailed to the following address:
