* This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section
1.89 of the Commission's rules (Rules) to Westplex Broadcasting LLC
(Westplex), owner of antenna structure number 1065466 in Davis, MO.
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 January 6, 2015, in response to a complaint that the night-time
lighting installed on the structure was not red lighting as required,
an agent from the Kansas City Office contacted Westplex and found the
following violation(s):

  + 47 C.F.R. § 17.23:  "Unless otherwise specified by the Commission,
  each new or altered antenna structure must conform to the FAA's
  painting and lighting specifications set forth in the FAA's final
  determination of "no hazard" and the associated FAA study for that
  particular structure. For purposes of this part, any specifications,
  standards, and general requirements set forth by the FAA in the
  structure's determination of "no hazard" and the associated FAA study
  are mandatory. Additionally, each antenna structure must be painted
  and lighted in accordance with any painting and lighting requirements
  prescribed on the antenna structure's registration, or in accordance
  with any other specifications provided by the Commission." On January
  6, 2015, Westplex informed the agent that the antenna structure was
  lighted via strobes. The FAA requirement for this particular structure
  is red lighting.

  + 47 C.F.R. § 17.57:  "[...] The owner must also notify the Commission
  within 5 days of any change in structure height or change in ownership
  information (FCC Form 854)." On January 6, 2015, Westplex stated that
  they were the current owner of antenna structure number 1065466.

  1065466 had not been updated to reflect this change in ownership.
