                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: November  30, 2011

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

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to section
       1.89 of the Commission's rules, to Richland Towers-LLC, registrant of
       antenna structure # 1060205 in West Orange, New Jersey.

    2. On October 21, 2011, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's New York
       Office inspected antenna structure # 1060205, located at 416 Eagle
       Rock Avenue, West Orange, New Jersey, 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 # 1060205 requires aviation orange and white paint and
   red obstruction lighting in accordance with FCC paragraphs 1, 3, 12, and
   21. 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, Richland Towers-LLC 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 painting the structure in accordance
   with FCC paragraphs 1, 3, 12, and 21.

    3. Pursuant to section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and section 1.89 of the Commission's rules, Richland Towers-LLC must
       submit a written statement concerning this matter within 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 member of Richland
       Towers-LLC. 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:

       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
