                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: January 17, 2013

   By the District Director, Detroit Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules) to Frontier North Inc. (Frontier),
       registrant of antenna structure number 1015650 in Port Clinton, Ohio.
       Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this NOV does
       not preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted,
       including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for
       the violation(s) noted herein.

    2. On December 14, 2012, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Detroit
       Office inspected antenna structure number 1015650 located at 120
       Jefferson Street, Port Clinton, Ohio, 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,"..." Frontier's
   antenna structure is 230 feet and the FCC's ASR database specifies
   painting and lighting specifications for antenna structure #1015650 in
   accordance with FCC Paragraphs 1, 3, 11 and 21. Paragraph 1 requires the
   structure to be painted, paragraph 3 requires a red flashing beacon at the
   top of the structure and paragraph 11 requires steady burning red lights
   be mounted at the mid-point of the structure. At the time of the
   inspection, the agent observed that the structure had white flashing
   lights operating during the day in lieu of painting. In order to come into
   compliance with the Commission's rules, Frontier must: (1) obtain a new
   FAA "no hazard" determination indicating that the current lighting system
   is permitted and then submit a modified antenna structure registration to
   reflect the new "no hazard" determination or (2) submit a modified
   registration if a new FAA "no hazard" determination already has been

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional information
       concerning the violations and any remedial actions taken. Therefore,
       Frontier North Inc., 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 Rules, we direct Frontier to
       support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
       under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of
