   By the District Director, Philadelphia Office, Northeast Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules)^ to Gordon Krauss, owner of antenna
       structure 1236011 in Lawnside, New Jersey. 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

    2. On November 26, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's
       Philadelphia Office attempted to inspect the antenna structure number
       1236011, which according to the Antenna Structure Registration
       database are located on Newmans and Bell Avenue in Lawnside, New
       Jersey, and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S 17.57: "The owner of an antenna structure for which an Antenna
   Structure Registration Number has been obtained must notify the Commission
   within 24 hours of completion of construction (FCC Form 854-R) and/or
   dismantlement (FCC Form 854). The owner must also immediately notify the
   Commission using FCC Form 854 upon any change in structure height or
   change in ownership information." The agents found that Gordon Krauss
   dismantled the antenna structure but never notified the Commission.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended,^ and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional

       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 Rules, we direct Gordon Krauss
       to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an

       truth and accuracy of the information therein,^ and confirming that
       all of the information requested by this Notice which is in the
       individual's possession, custody, control, or knowledge has been
       produced. To knowingly and willfully make any false statement or
