                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

                                                        Released: May 6, 2014

   By the District Director, Chicago Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules)^ to P.E.C. Mobile Communications,
       Inc. (P.E.C.) registrant of antenna structure number 1009772 in
       Effingham, Illinois. 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 herein.^

    2. On February 12, 2014, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Chicago
       Office inspected antenna structure number 1009772 located at 410 South
       Willow, Effingham, Illinois, and observed the following violations:

     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 of the antenna
        structure." At the time of the inspection, the Antenna Structure
        Registration Number was not posted.

     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 on this
        structure was faded and severely rusted, which significantly reduced
        its visibility to aircraft.

    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 violations and any remedial actions taken.
       Therefore, P.E.C. 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 Rules, we direct P.E.C. to
       support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
       under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized official
       of P.E.C. with personal knowledge of the representations provided in
       P.E.C.'s response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the information
       therein,^ and confirming that all of the information requested by this
       Notice which is in P.E.C.'s possession, custody, control, or knowledge
       has been produced. To knowingly and willfully make any false statement
       or conceal any material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by
       fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.^

    5. All replies and documentation sent in response to this Notice should
       be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to
