     Adopted:  March 12, 2003           Released:  March 17, 2003    

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

     1.   In  this  Forfeiture  Order  (``Order''),  we  issue  a 
          monetary  forfeiture   in  the  amount  of   twenty-one 
          thousand   dollars  ($21,000)   to   Ramh   Corporation 
          (``Ramh''), licensee of Station KDEF(AM),  Albuquerque, 
          New Mexico, for willful violation of Sections  73.1125, 
          73.1350, and 73.1400  of the Commission's Rules  (``the 
          Rules'').1    The  noted   violations  involve   Ramh's 
          failure  to  maintain a   main  studio  management  and 
          staff   presence,   and  its   failure   to   establish 
          monitoring   procedures  to   ensure  compliance   with 
          authorized operating power,  mode of operation, and  AM 
          directional system  parameters.  Further, we find  that 
          Ramh willfully and repeatedly violated Section  73.1560 
          of the Rules2  by exceeding nighttime power levels  and 
          operating with an improper mode of operation. 

     2.   On  June  28,  2002,  the  District  Director  of   the 
Commission's Denver,  Colorado Field  Office issued  a Notice  of 
Apparent Liability  for Forfeiture  (``NAL'')3 in  the amount  of 
$21,000 to  Ramh.  Ramh  has not  filed a  response to  the  NAL.  
Based on the information before us, we affirm the forfeiture. 

     3.   ACCORDINGLY, IT IS  ORDERED THAT,  pursuant to  Section 
503(b) of  the Communications  Act of  1934, as  amended,  (``the 
Act''),4 and Sections 0.111, 0.311 and 1.80(f)(4) of the  Rules,5 
Ramh Corporation  IS  LIABLE FOR  A  MONETARY FORFEITURE  in  the 
amount of  $21,000  for  willfully  violating  Sections  73.1125, 
73.1350, and 73.1400  of the Rules  and willfully and  repeatedly  
violating Section 73.1560 of the Rules.

     4.   Payment of the forfeiture shall  be made in the  manner 
provided for in Section 1.80 of the Rules6 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.7  
Payment shall 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 
NAL/Acct. No. 200232800014, and  FRN 0006-1600-48.  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. 20554.8

     5.        IT IS  FURTHER ORDERED  THAT this  Order shall  be 
sent by  regular  mail  and by  certified  mail,  return  receipt
