Released:  November 14, 2017
By the Regional Director, Region Two, Enforcement Bureau:
1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the 
Commission’s rules (Rules)
to East Arkansas Broadcasters, Inc., owner of antenna structure number 
1038728 in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the 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. The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s or Commission’s) Enforcement 
Bureau’s (Bureau’s) New Orleans Office received acknowledgement from Bobby Caldwell, president of
East Arkansas Broadcasters, Inc., that the lighting system for antenna structure number 1038728 is 
currently in a nonworking status.  Based on evidence gathered through the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) 
database, East Arkansas Broadcasters, Inc., is in violation of the following rule:
a. 47 C.F.R. § 17.56: “Replacing or repairing of lights, automatic indicators or 
automatic control or alarm systems shall be accomplished as soon as 
practicable.” The NOTAM database indicate four NOTAMs have been 
issued for antenna structure number 1038728 since February 2, 2017. 
NOTAM JBR 02/067 was issued on February 2, 2017 and expired on 
March 2, 2017.  NOTAM JBR 05/240 was issued on May 18, 2017 and 
expired on July 14, 2017.  NOTAM JBR 06/338 was issued on June 29, 2017 
and expired on September 29, 2017.  NOTAM JBR 10/008 was issued on 
October 2, 2017 and expires on December 31, 2017.  The Commission has 
received no information indicating the lights have been repaired since 
47 C.F.R. § 1.89.
47 C.F.R. § 1.89(a).  
Federal Communications Commission
issuance of the first NOTAM, and therefore, assumes the lights has been in a 
nonworking status since at least February 2, 2017. Unless reasons provided 
by East Arkansas Broadcasters, Inc., prove otherwise, a duration greater than 
seven months is beyond the bounds of “as soon as practicable.”
