  Adopted:  November 6, 2001            Released:   November   8, 


By the Commission:

     1.  In  this Memorandum  Opinion and  Order (``Order''),  we 
deny the  application  for  review  filed on  May  16,  2001,  by 
Carmelita T. Gossard,  d/b/a AA Beep  (``AA Beep''), licensee  of 
Paging Station KNKK662.   AA Beep  seeks review  of a  Memorandum 
Opinion and Order (``MO&O'')  released by the Enforcement  Bureau 
on April 19, 2001.1  In  that MO&O, the Enforcement Bureau  found 
that there was  no basis  for rescinding  its Forfeiture  Order,2 
which imposed  a  monetary  forfeiture  in  the  amount  of  five 
thousand dollars ($5,000) against AA Beep for operating a  paging 
system without a license between April 1 and October 8, 1999,  in 
willful violation of  Section 301  of the  Communications Act  of 
1934, as  amended  (``the  Act''),  3 and  Section  22.3  of  the 
Commission's Rules (``the Rules'').4

     2.  AA Beep has not specified, as required by our rules, any 
factors that warrant Commission review.  See Section  1.115(b)(2) 
of the  Rules.5   Instead, AA  Beep  has simply  stated  that  it 
welcomes a Commission evaluation of  what it has been saying  for 
the past two  years.  We have  reviewed the Enforcement  Bureau's 
MO&O and  find that  its ruling  was correct  and that  no  basis 
exists to warrant reversal. 

     3.  ACCORDINGLY,  IT IS  ORDERED that,  pursuant to  Section 

1.115(g) of the Rules,6 AA  Beep's application for review of  the 

MO&O released on April 19, 2001, IS DENIED.  

     4.  Payment of  the five thousand  dollar ($5,000)  monetary 
forfeiture shall be made  in the manner  provided for in  Section 
1.80 of the Rules7 within 30  days of the release of this  Order.  
If the forfeiture is  not paid within  the period specified,  the 
case may be referred to the Department of Justice for  collection 
pursuant to Section 504(a) of the  Act.8  Payment may be made  by 
mailing a check or  similar instrument, payable  to the order  of 
the  ``Federal  Communications   Commission,''  to  the   Federal 
Communications Commission,  P.O.  Box  73482,  Chicago,  Illinois 
60673-7482.   The  payment  should  note  the  NAL/Acct.   number 
referenced above.  Requests for full payment under an installment 
plan should be sent to Chief, Revenue and Receivables  Operations 
Group, 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20554.9

     5.  IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT this Order shall be sent,  by 
certified  mail,  return  receipt  requested,  to  Carmelita   T. 
Gossard, d/b/a AA Beep, 22824 Blue Gill Lane, Cudjoe Key, Florida
