                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: August 21, 2012

   By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent Office, Western Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's Rules, to H Services LLC, registrant of antenna
       structure #  1064907 in Sterling, Alaska. Pursuant to Section 1.89(a)
       of the Commission's Rules, issuance of this Notice does not preclude
       the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted, including
       issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the
       violation noted herein.

    2. On April 24, 2012, agents of the Enforcement Bureau's Anchorage
       Resident Agent Office inspected antenna structure #  1064907 located
       at 37376 Sterling Hwy, Sterling, Alaska, and observed the following

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: Section 17.21(a): "Antenna structures shall be painted
        and lighted when . . . they exceed 60.96 meters (200 feet) above the
        ground or they require special aeronautical study."  Antenna
        structure # 1064907 requires painting specifications in accordance
        with FCC Paragraphs 1, 3, 4, 13 and 21. FCC Paragraph 1 requires that
        the antenna structure to be painted throughout its height with
        alternate bands of aviation surface orange and white, terminating
        with aviation surface orange bands at both top and bottom. The width
        of the bands shall be equal and approximately one-seventh the height
        of the structure, provided however, that the bands shall not be more
        than 100 feet nor less than 1 . feet in width. All towers shall be
        cleaned or repainted as often as necessary to maintain good
        visibility. At the time of the inspection, the agents observed black
        cabling running part way up each of the three tower legs. The black
        cabling obscured the structure's painting, which diminished the
        visibility of the structure from a distance.

    3. Pursuant to Section  403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended, and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, we seek
       additional information concerning the violations and any remedial
       actions taken.  Therefore, H Services LLC, must submit a written
       statement concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of release of
       this Notice. The response (i) must fully explain each violation,
       including all relevant surrounding facts and circumstances, (ii) must
       contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to correct each
       violation and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must include a time line
       for completion of any pending corrective action(s). The response must
       be complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by reference to
       other communications or answers to other notices.

    4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Commission's Rules, we direct H
       Services LLC to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit
       or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
