                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released:  March 20, 2014

   By the District Director, Dallas 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 Dallas MTA, LP, owner of antenna
       structure number 1268613, in Cleburne, Texas. 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 violations noted

    2. On February 12, 2014, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Dallas
       Office inspected antenna structure number 1268613 located in Cleburne,
       Texas, and observed the following violation:

        a. 47 C.F.R. S 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 number must be
           weather-resistant and of sufficient size to be easily seen at the
           base antenna structure." At the time of inspection, the Antenna
           Structure Registration number was not posted at the base of the

        b. 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." During the inspection, it was determined
           that the structure was constructed. As of March 6, 2014, the
           Antenna Structure Registration (ASR) database listed the antenna
           structure as granted.

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

       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.^
