                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 25, 2007

   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 Cablevision of Newark, owner of
       antenna structure 1045843.

    2. On May 1, 2007, an agent of the Commission's New York Office inspected
       the antenna structure, ASR # 1045843, located in Newark, New Jersey,
       and observed the following violation:

           a. 47 C.F.R. S17.48(a): "The owner of any antenna structure which
              is registered ... Shall report immediately by telephone or
              telegraph to the nearest Flight Service Station or office of
              the Federal Aviation Administration any observed or otherwise
              known extinguishment or improper functioning of any top steady
              burning light or any flashing obstruction light, regardless of
              its position on the antenna structure, not corrected within 30
              minutes. Such reports shall set forth the condition the light
              or lights, the circumstances which caused the failure, the
              probable date for restoration of service..." The agent observed
              that the top-mounted flashing white obstruction light was not
              operating at the required daytime intensity. Cablevision
              personnel were immediately notified, yet a subsequent check of
              the Federal Aviation Administration's DINS NOTAM database
              showed no open NOTAM for the tower, indicating that the FAA was
              not notified of the improperly functioning light.

           b. 47 C.F.R. S 17.56(a): "Replacing or repairing of lights,
              automatic indicators or automatic control alarm systems shall
              be accomplished as soon as practicable." At the time of
              inspection, the agent observed that the top-mounted flashing
              white obstruction light was not operating at the required
              daytime intensity. Because of hazards to air navigation,
              Cablevision of Newark must diligently investigate the problem
              and resolve the light failure.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Cablevision of Newark 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
