                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: May 29, 2014

   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 the G&G Communications Inc.
       (G&G), owner of antenna structure number 1044775 in Centerton, 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 violations noted herein.^

    2. On April 10, 2014, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Philadelphia
       Office inspected antenna structure number 1044775 located adjacent to
       the property at 382 Centerton Road, Centerton, New Jersey, and
       observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 17.23: "[E]ach 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'...." The FAA recommended in its
        Determination of No Hazard to Air Navigation (FAA Study #
        2004-AEA-1457-OE) that antenna structure number 1044775 be lit in
        accordance with Chapters 4, 8, and 12 of FAA Circular 70/7460-1K,
        which specifies a dual lighting system. However, at the time of the
        inspection, the agent observed that there was no red obstruction
        lighting installed on the antenna structure, but only a top-level
        white strobe.

     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." At the time
        of the inspection, the agent observed that the structure was
        constructed. As of April 15, 2014, however, the Antenna Structure
        Registration database did not reflect that construction had been
        completed. Furthermore, agent's investigation found that the owner's
        phone number on the Antenna Structure Registration was not valid.

    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, G&G 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 G&G to support
       its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under
       penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of G&G
       with personal knowledge of the representations provided in G&G'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 G&G'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.^

       be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to
