    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to MBC Grand Broadcasting, Inc.
       ("MBC"), registrant of antenna structure #1060414 in Glenwood Springs,

    2. On April 1, 2010, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Denver Office
       inspected antenna structure #1060414 located in Glenwood Springs,
       Colorado, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.51(a): "All red obstruction lighting shall be
        exhibited from sunset to sunrise unless otherwise specified." At the
        time of inspection, two sidelights were extinguished at the one-third
        level and one sidelight was extinguished at the two-thirds level on
        antenna structure #1060414.

     b. 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." The painting and
        lighting specifications for antenna structure #1060414 are listed as
        FCC paragraphs 1, 3, 11, and 21. Paragraph 11 requires that the
        structure have sidelights with at least two red obstruction lights
        installed at its mid point. At the time of inspection, the antenna
        structure had red obstruction lights installed at one third and
        two-thirds levels of the overall height of the structure. The
        sidelights were not installed in accordance with its associated FCC
        antenna structure registration.
