                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   September 22, 2006

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Press Communications, LLC
       ("Press"), antenna structure registrant for antenna structure #

    2. On June 27, 2006, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected antenna structure # 1237893 located at 2355 West Bangs
       Avenue (South 1 of 2 towers), Neptune, New Jersey and observed the
       following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 17.21: "Antenna structures shall be painted and lighted
        when: (a) They exceed 60.96 meters (200 feet) in height above the
        ground or they require special aeronautical study." According to the
        Antenna Structure Registration ("ASR") for antenna structure number
        1237893, the structure measures 240.57 feet and the structure is
        required to have painting and lighting in accordance with FCC
        Paragraphs  1, 3, 11, and 21. Paragraph 1 requires  painting with
        alternate bands of aviation orange and white. Paragraph 3 and 11
        requires red obstruction lighting. During the inspection, the agent
        observed that the structure was not equipped with a top red beacon

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 17.50: "Antenna structures requiring painting under this
        part shall be cleaned or repainted as often as necessary to maintain
        good visibility." During the inspection, the agent observed that the
        paint on the structure was faded.

     c. 47 C.F.R. S 17.57: "The owner of an antenna structure for which an
        Antenna Structure Registration Number has been obtained must notify
        the Commission within 24 hours of completion of construction (FCC
        Form 854-R) and/or dismantlement (FCC Form 854). The owner must also
        notify the Commission using FCC Form 854 upon any change in structure
        height or change in ownership information." Based on the agent's
        review of the FCC's ASR database and measurements of the antenna
        structure, Press failed to notify the Commission of a decrease in the
        height of antenna structure # 1237893 from 240.57 feet to
        approximately 177 feet.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Press, 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 Press 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:

   Federal Communications Commission

   New York Office

   201 Varick Street, Suite 1151

   New York, NY 10014

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Press at its address of record.

    5. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
