* This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section
1.89 of the Commission's rules (Rules) to Verizon Wireless (VAW), LLC
(Verizon), owner of antenna structure # 1012636 located in Carlsbad,
California.  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.

* On June 11, 2014, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's San Diego
Office inspected antenna structure # 1012636 located at latitude 33⁰ 9'
13.1" north and longitude 117⁰ 15' 22.1" west in Carlsbad, California,
and observed the following violation:

  + 47 C.F.R. § 17.21(a):  "Antenna structures shall be painted and
  lighted when:
(a) They exceed 60.96 meters (200 feet) in height above the ground
or they require special aeronautical study."  The registration for
antenna structure # 1012636 reflects the FAA recommendation that the
structure be lit in accordance with Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 12, of FAA
Circular 70/7460-1K, specifically, the antenna structure is required
to have a top flashing red obstruction light at the top of the antenna
structure and steady burning red obstruction lights at the mid-point of
the antenna structure.	During the nighttime inspection on June 11, 2014,
the agent observed that there was only one steady burning red light on
top on the antenna structure.

* 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, Verizon 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.

* In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Verizon to
support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under
penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of Verizon
with personal knowledge of the representations provided in Verizon'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 the licensee'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.
