* This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
of the Commission's rules (Rules) to Lincoln County, Nevada (Lincoln
County), registrant of antenna structure number 1282229 located in Coyote
Springs, Nevada.  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.
* On June 19, 2014, in response to a complaint, agents of the Enforcement
Bureau's Los Angeles Office inspected antenna structure number 1282229
located at coordinates 36⁰ 48' 38" North Latitude and 114⁰ 57' 23"
West Longitude 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."  During the night time
observation, the agent observed no red obstruction lighting on the tower.
* 47 C.F.R. § 17.48(a): "The owner of any antenna structure which
is registered with the Commission and has been assigned lighting
specifications referenced in this part shall report immediately by
telephone or telegraph to the nearest Flight Service Station or office
of the Federal Aviation Administration any observed or otherwise known
extinguishment or improper functioning of any top steady burning light
or any flashing obstruction light, regardless of its position on the
antenna structure, not corrected within 30 minutes.  Such reports shall
set forth the condition of the light or lights, the circumstances which
caused the failure, the probable date for restoration of service, the FCC
Antenna Structure Registration Number, the height of the structure (AGL
and AMSL if known) and the name, title, address, and telephone number
of the person making the report."  At the time of the inspection, the
agent reported the antenna tower light outage to the FAA and initiated
the issuance of a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM). The FAA advised that a NOTAM
had not been reported by the tower owner.
* 47 C.F.R. § 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 displayed.

* 47 C.F.R. § 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)."  At the time of the inspection,
the FCC's antenna structure registration database listed the status of the
antenna structure as "Granted" instead of "Constructed."   Lincoln County
did not notify the Commission of the construction completion.

* 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, Lincoln County

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.

to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of
Lincoln County with personal knowledge of the representations provided
in Lincoln County's response, verifying the truth and accuracy of the
