                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

                                                      Released: July  3, 2013

   By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent  Office, Western Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's Rules,^ to  Ohana Media Group, LLC (Ohana),
       registrant of antenna structure #1005015 in Anchorage, Alaska.
       Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Commission's 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. On June 10 and June 11, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's
       Anchorage Resident Agent Office inspected antenna structure #1005015
       located  off of 2241 Woodworth Circle, in Anchorage, Alaska, and
       observed the following violation:

     a. 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," as referenced in the . . . FAA Advisory Circulars . . . ."
        Antenna structure #1005015 requires painting and lighting
        requirements as specified by FAA Chapters 4, 8, and 12 in accordance
        with FAA Circular Number 70/7460-1K.  Chapter 8 requires the mounting
        at the top of the antenna structure, a dual lighting system that
        includes red lights for nighttime and medium intensity flashing white
        lights for daytime and twilight use. The agent inspected during
        daylight hours  and  failed to observe a top-mounted light flashing

   b.  47 C.F.R. S Section 17.48(a): "The owner of any antenna structure
   which is registered with the Commission and has been assigned lighting
   specifications referenced in this part shall report immediately by
   telephone or telegraph to the nearest Flight Service Station or office of
   the Federal Aviation Administration any observed or otherwise known
   extinguishment or improper functioning of any top steady burning light or
   any flashing obstruction light, regardless of its position on the antenna
   structure, not corrected within 30 minutes."  On June 11, 2013, during
   daylight hours, the agent inspected the tower. The agent did not observe
   the top mounted light flashing white. The agent failed to locate a NOTAM
   issued against this antenna structure. The agent contacted Ohana and
   advised of the non-operational light; thereafter, Ohana initiated a NOTAM.

    3. Pursuant to Section  403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended,^ and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, we seek
       additional information concerning the violations and any remedial
       actions taken.  Therefore, Ohana  must submit a written statement
       concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of release of this
       Notice. The response (i) must fully explain each violation, including
       all relevant surrounding facts and circumstances, (ii) must contain a
       statement of the specific action(s) taken to correct each violation
       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
       communications or answers to other notices.^

    4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Commission's Rules, we direct
       Ohana  to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
