Federal Communications Commission
Statement.7 In assessing forfeitures, Section 503(b)(2)(E) of the Act requires that we take into account the
nature, circumstances, extent and gravity of the violation and, with respect to the violator, the degree of
culpability, any history of prior offenses, ability to pay, and such other matters as justice may require.s
4. Licensee, as indicated above, has failed to dispute the findings of the NAL, nor has it
made any attempt to argue that the forfeiture should be reduced or cancelled. Licensee has thus failed to
identify facts or circumstances to persuade us that there is a basis for modifying the proposed forfeiture.
We are therefore not aware of any mitigating circumstances to warrant a reduction of the forfeiture
penalties. For these reasons, and based on the information before us, we hereby impose a total forfeiture
of $ 10,000 for Licensee's willful or repeated violations of Sections 73.503(d) and 73.811 of the Rules, as
well as Section 399B of the Act, for the reasons set forth in the NAL.

of 1934, as amended, and Sections 0.283 and 1.80 of the Commission's Rules,9 that Enid Public Radio
Association SHALL FORFEIT to the United States the sum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for
willfully violating Sections 73.503(d) and 73.811 of the Commission's Rules,'t as well as Section 399B
of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.
6. Payment of the forfeiture shall be made in the manner provided for in Section 1.80 of the
Commission's Rules within 30 days of the release of this Forfeiture 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." Payment of the proposed forfeiture must be made by check or similar
instrument, payable to the order of the Federal Communications Commission. The payment must include
the NAL/Acct. No. and FRN No. referenced in the caption above. Payment by check or money order may
be mailed to Federal Communications Commission, at P.O. Box 979088, St. Louis, MO 63197-9000.
Payment by overnight mail may be sent to U.S. Bank-Government Lockbox #979088, SL-MO-C2-GL,

this Forfeiture Order under an installment plan should be sent to: Associate Managing Director-Financial
