  1.      This  is  a  Notice  of  Violation  ("Notice")   issued 
     pursuant to  Section 1.89  of  the Commission's  Rules,1  to 
     State of  New Jersey Turnpike Authority (``NJTA'').

  2.      On October 22, 2004, an  agent of the Commission's  New 
     York Office  inspected the  antenna structure,  Registration 
     Number 1212481, located in Iselin, New Jersey, and  observed 
     the following violation:

  2.a.      47   C.F.R.     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. 
            Materials used to display the Antenna  Structure 
            Registration must  be weather  resistant and  of 
            sufficient size  to be easily  seen at the  base 
            of  the  tower.  The  agent  observed  that  the 
            tower   owner  had   not  posted   the   antenna 
            registration number.

  2.b.      47  C.F.R.    17.50:  ``   Antenna   structures 
            requiring   painting   shall   be   cleaned   or 
            repainted  as  often as  necessary  to  maintain 
            good  visibility.''   The  paint  on  the   NJTA 
            antenna tower was peeling and faded.

  3.      Pursuant to Section 308(b) of the Communications Act of 
     1934, as  amended,2 and  Section  1.89 of  the  Commission's 
     Rules, NJTA, must submit a written statement concerning this 
     matter within twenty  (20) 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  be  complete  in  itself  and  signed  by  a 
     principal or  officer  of  the  tower  owner  with  personal 
     knowledge of the matter.  All replies and documentation sent 
     in response to this  Notice should be  marked with the  File 
     No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to the following
