                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: February 8, 2013

   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 (Rules)^ to Daytona State College, owner of
       antenna structure number 1030556, in DeBary, Florida. 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 January 16, 2013, agents of the Commission's Tampa Office inspected
       antenna structure number 1030556, located in DeBary, Florida and
       observed the following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 17.4(g): "The Antenna Structure Registration Number must
        be displayed in a conspicuous place so that it is readily visible
        near the base of the antenna structure. Material 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." The Antenna Structure Registration Number was not posted.

     b. 47 C.F.R.S17.47(a): "The owner of any antenna structure which is
        registered with the Commission and has been assigned lighting
        specifications referenced in this part: (a)(1) Shall make an
        observation of the antenna structure's lights at least once each 24
        hours either visually or by observing an automatic properly
        maintained indicator designed to register any failure of such lights,
        to insure that all such lights are functioning properly as required;
        or alternatively, (2) Shall provide and properly maintain an
        automatic alarm system designed to detect any failure of such lights
        and to provide indication of such failure to the owner." At the time
        of the inspection, Daytona State College's representative told the
        agents that the lights on antenna structure number 1030556 were not
        visually monitored and that there was no automatic alarm system.

     c. 47 C.F.R. S 17.57: "The owner must also immediately notify the
        Commission using FCC Form 854 upon any change in structure height or
        change in ownership information." Although Daytona Beach Community
        College changed its name to Daytona State College, the Commission's
        Antenna Structure Registration database listed Daytona Beach
        Community College as antenna structure number 1030556's current
        owner. Moreover, the contact name and number in the database was
        outdated.[3][Author ID1: at Thu Jan 24 15:56:00 2013 ]
