   By the District Director, Tampa Office, South Central Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules to Alternative Phone Company dba Day Star
       Communications (Daystar Communications), owner of antenna structure
       number 1221656 in Port Charlotte, Florida.

    2. On February 2, 2012, agents of the Commission's Tampa Office inspected
       antenna structure number 1221656 located in Port Charlotte, Florida,
       and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.4(g): "The Antenna Structure Registration Number must
        be displayed in a conspicuous place that it is readily visible near
        the base of the antenna structure. Materials used to display the
        Antenna Structure Registration Number must be weather-resistant and
        of sufficient size to be easily seen at the base of the antenna
        structure." At the time of inspection, there was no Antenna Structure
        Registration Number posted on the fence or nearby the base of antenna
        structure number 1221656.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.57: "The owner of an antenna structure for which an
        Antenna Structure Registration Number has been obtained must notify
        the Commission within 24 hours of completion of construction (FCC
        Form 854-R) and/or the dismantlement (FCC Form 854). The owner must
        also immediately notify the Commission using FCC Form 854 upon any
        change in height or change in ownership information." Although
        antenna structure number 1221656 was not transferred to another
        entity, its owner changed its legal name, and, at the time of
        inspection, the Antenna Structure Registration Database still listed
        Day Star Communications' previous name.

    3. Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Sections 1.16 and 1.89 of the Commission's rules, Day
       Star Communications must submit a written statement concerning this
       matter within twenty (20) calendar 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 also confirm that Alternative
       Phone Company dba Daystar Communications is the entity's legal name.
       The response must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or
       officer of the entity. All replies and documentation sent in response
       to this Notice should be marked with the File No. and NOV No.
