   Released: June 25, 2013

   By the Resident Agent, Houston 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 Crossroads Security Systems,
       owner of antenna structure number 1204337 in Victoria, Texas. Pursuant

       preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted,
       including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for
       the violation noted herein.^

    2. On June 12, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Houston Office
       inspected antenna structure number 1204337 located in Victoria, Texas,
       and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 17.4(g): "Except as described in paragraph (h) of this
        section, 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 Number must be weather-resistant and of
        sufficient size to be easily seen at the base of the antenna
        structure." At the time of inspection, the Antenna Structure
        Registration Number was not seen displayed near the base of the
        antenna structure.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 17.50: "Antenna structures requiring painting under this
        part shall be cleaned or repainted as often as necessary to maintain
        good visibility." At the time of inspection, the paint was observed
        to be faded and chipped to the point where it no longer provided good

     c. 47 C.F.R. S 17.51(a): "All red obstruction lighting shall be
        exhibited from sunrise until sunset unless otherwise specified." At
        the time of inspection no lights were operational on this structure.

    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 violation and any remedial action taken.

       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
