By the District Director, Kansas City Office, South Central Region,
Enforcement Bureau:

* This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section
1.89 of the Commission's rules (Rules) to Horvath Communications,
Inc. (Horvath), owner of antenna structure numbers 1292070 and 1292314 in
Wilber and Crete, Nebraska, respectively.  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(s) noted herein.

* On September 18, 2014, in response to a complaint that the lighting
on the structures had been inoperative for several weeks after final
construction, an agent from the Kansas City Office contacted Horvath
and found the following violation(s):

  + 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."  Horvath
  reported to the Commission's Antenna Structure Registration database
  that the structures are more than 79 meters in height above the ground
  and construction was completed by August 25, 2014.  On September 18,
  2014, Horvath investigated the matter and told an agent from this Office
  that neither of the structures were lighted.	Horvath then notified
  the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the outage and a Notice
  to Airmen was issued.  Horvath later informed the Office that the
  structures had not been lighted since construction had been completed.

* In addition to the violation noted, please be aware that Horvath must
also abide by the following Rules:

  + 47 C.F.R. § 17.48(a):  "... the owner of any antenna structure
  which is registered with the Commission and assigned lighting
  specifications... 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."

  + 47 C.F.R. § 17.47(a):  "... the owner of any antenna structure
  which is registered with the Commission and assigned lighting
  specifications... 1) Shall make an observation of the antenna structures
  lights at least once each 24 hours either visually or by observing
  an automatic properly maintained indicator designed to register any
  failure of such lights... 2) Shall provide and properly maintain an
  automatic alarm system designed to detect any failure of such lights
  and to provide indication of such failure to the owner."

* 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, Horvath
Communications, Inc. 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
