* On December 21, 2013, and January 16, 2014, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Honolulu Office inspected antenna structure #1213943 located at the Hart Street Extension next to the Kapalama Canal, and observed the following violations:

  + 47 C.F.R. § 17.51(a):  "All red obstruction lighting shall be exhibited from sunset to sunrise unless otherwise specified."  The antenna structure registration for antenna structure #1213943 requires a top flashing beacon and at least two steady burning lights at the mid-level.

The response must be complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by reference to other communications or answers to other notices.  

* In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Blow Up LLC to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of Blow Up LLC with personal knowledge of the representations provided in the response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the information therein, and confirming that all of the information requested by this Notice which is in the licensee's possession, custody, control, or knowledge has been produced.
