    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to O.J. and Carol Pratt, owner of
       antenna structure # 1022124 and licensee of Radio Station KSXT-AM in
       Longmont, Colorado.

    2. On April 11, 2008, at approximately 6:30 p.m., MDT, agents of the
       Enforcement Bureau's Denver District Office inspected antenna
       structure # 1022124, located near the intersection of West 1st Street
       and South Taft Avenue in Loveland, Colorado, and observed the
       following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 73.49 states: "Antenna towers having radio frequency
        potential at the base (series fed, folded unipole, and insulated base
        antennas) must be enclosed within effective locked fences or other
        enclosures." At the time of the inspection, agents observed that the
        east side panel of the base fence surrounding the tower was down.
        Radio station KSXT-AM transmits from this structure, and, as such,
        the structure had radio frequency potential at the base.

        due to high winds on the day of the inspection.

       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, O.J. and Carol Pratt, must
