                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: April  12, 2010

   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 County of Suffolk, owner of antenna
       structure # 1018616 in Melville, New York.

    2. On April 2, 2010, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected antenna structure # 1018616 located at Mt Misery Road,
       Melville, New York, and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S: 17.23: "Unless otherwise specified by the Commission, each
   new or altered antenna structure to be registered on or after January 1,
   1996, must conform to the FAA's painting and lighting recommendations set
   forth on the structure's FAA determination of "no hazard." The FCC's
   Antenna Structure Registration ("ASR") database currently indicates that
   antenna structure number 1018616 requires dual lighting with red
   obstruction lighting at night and medium intensity white flashing lights
   during the day in accordance with FAA Circular Number 70/7460-1K, Chapters
   4, 8, and 12. The antenna structure does not conform to these
   recommendations, but is equipped with faded aviation orange and white
   paint and only red obstruction lighting, and therefore is in violation of
   47 C.F.R. S: 17.23. In order to come into compliance with the Commission's
   rules, County of Suffolk must: (1) obtain a new FAA "no hazard"
   determination indicating that the current system is permitted and then
   submit a modified antenna structure registration to reflect the new "no
   hazard" determination , (2) submit a modified registration if a new FAA
   "no hazard" determination already has been obtained or (3) come into
   compliance with the current ASR by adding medium white obstruction
   lighting in accordance with FAA Circular Number 70/7460-1K, Chapters 4, 8,
   and 12.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, County of Suffolk, 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
       County of Suffolk. 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 address:
