   Released: November 22, 2011

   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 The State of New Jersey, owner of
       antenna structure # 1046966 in Harmony Township, New Jersey.

    2. On November 3, 2011, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected antenna structure # 1046966 located at 19 Demeter Road
       Harmony Township, New Jersey 07882, and observed the following

   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 1046966 requires 24-hours medium strobes
   obstruction lighting in accordance with FAA Circular Number 70/7460-1K,
   Chapters 4, 6, and 12. The antenna structure does not conform to these
   recommendations, but is equipped with dual lighting with red obstruction
   lighting at night and medium intensity white flashing lights during the
   day, and therefore is in violation of 47 C.F.R. S: 17.23. In order to come
   into compliance with the Commission's rules, The State of New Jersey 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 lighting
   the structure in accordance with FAA Circular Number 70/7460-1K, Chapters
   4, 6, and 12.

    3. Pursuant to section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and section 1.89 of the Commission's rules, The State of New Jersey
       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 an authorized
       official of The State of New Jersey. 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:
