   Released:  July 10,  2006

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to WLNY TV INC, owner of antenna
       structure 1006717 in Middle Island, New York.

    2. On May 16, 2006, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected antenna structure 1006717 located in Middle Island, New
       York, and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S 17.23: "Unless otherwise specified by the Commission, each new

   must conform to the FAA's painting and lighting recommendations set forth
   on the structure's FAA determination of "no hazard," as referenced in the.
   . .FAA Advisory Circulars." The FCC's Antenna Structure Registration
   ("ASR") database currently indicates that the antenna structure requires
   aviation orange and white paint and red obstruction lighting in accordance
   with FAA Circular Number 70/7460-1J, Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 13. The antenna
   structure does not conform to these recommendations, but is equipped with
   a high intensity flashing white obstruction lighting system, and therefore
   is in violation of 47 C.F.R. S 17.23. In order to come into compliance
   with the Commission's rules, WLNY TV INC must: (1) obtain a new FAA "no
   hazard" determination indicating that the current lighting system is
   permitted and then submit a modified antenna structure registration to
   reflect the new "no hazard" determination or (2) submit a modified
   registration if a new FAA "no hazard" determination already has been

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, WLNY TV INC, must submit a
       written statement concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of
       release of this Notice. The response must fully explain each
       violation, must contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to
       correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and should include a
       time line for completion of pending corrective action(s). The response
       must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or officer of
       WLNY TV INC with personal knowledge of the matter. All replies and
       documentation sent in response to this Notice should be marked with
       the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to the following
