By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:
      1.  In this Memorandum Opinion and Order (``Order''), 
         we cancel a seven thousand dollar ($7,000) Notice 
         of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture (``NAL'')1 
         issued to Mega Communications of New Britain 
         Licensee L.L.C., (``Mega'') licensee of AM radio 
         station WLAT, New Britain, Connecticut for its 
         apparent willful violation of Section 73.49 of the 
         Commission's Rules (``Rules''). 2  The alleged 
         violation involved Mega's failure to enclose two of 
         its antenna structures within effective locked 
         fences or other enclosures.   Based on our review 
         of Mega's response to the NAL and the overall 
         record, including Mega's regular inspection of the 
         tower and the fact that the problem occurred 
         shortly after an inspection by Mega, we conclude 
         that Mega did not willfully violate Section 73.49 
         of the Rules.  Thus, we conclude that no forfeiture 
         should be imposed.
      2.  Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to 
         Section 504(b) of the Communications Act of 1934 as 
         amended, and Section 1.80(f)(4) of the Rules,3 the 
         instant Notice of Apparent Liability for 
         Forfeiture, NAL/Acct. No. 200332260003, IS 
      3.  IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a copy of this Order 
         shall be sent by Certified Mail, Return Receipt 
         Requested, and by First Class Mail to Mega 
         Communications of New Britain, Licensee, L.L.C., 
         8121 Georgia Avenue, 10th floor, Silver Spring, 
         Maryland 20910 and to its counsel, Mark B. Denbo, 
         Esq., and Christopher G. Wood, Esq., Fleischman and 
         Walsh, L.L.P., 1400 16th Street, N.W., Washington, 
         D.C.  20036.
