                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: August 2, 2010

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Public Service Electric and Gas
       Company, owner of antenna structure # 1044536 in Edison, New Jersey.

    2. On June 28, 2010, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected antenna structure # 1044536 located at 234 Pierson Avenue,
       Edison, New Jersey, and observed the following violation:

   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'. . . ." The
   FCC's Antenna Structure Registration ("ASR") database currently indicates
   that antenna structure number 1044536 requires aviation orange and white
   paint and red obstruction lighting in accordance with FAA Circular Number
   70/7460-1G, Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 9. The antenna structure does not
   conform to these recommendations, but is equipped with dual lighting with
   red obstruction lighting at night and medium intensity white flashing
   lights during the day. In order to come into compliance with the
   Commission's rules, Public Service Electric and Gas Company must: (1)
   obtain a new FAA "no hazard" determination indicating that the current
   system is permitted and then submit a modified antenna structure
   registration to reflect the new "no hazard" determination, (2) submit a
   modified registration if a new FAA "no hazard" determination already has
   been obtained or (3) come into compliance with the current ASR by painting
   the structure in accordance with FAA Circular Number 70/7460-1G, Chapters
   3,4, 5, and 9.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Public Service Electric
       and Gas Company, 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 Public Service Electric and Gas
       Company. 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 address:

       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance. Any false
