	Released:  May 20, 2016

By the Regional Director, Dallas Office, Region 2, Enforcement Bureau:

 This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section
 1.89 of the Commission's rules (Rules) to Andrews Tower Rental,
 Inc. (Andrews Tower), owner of antenna structure # 1058250 in Oplin,
 Texas.  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 February 24, 2016, the FCC Dallas Office received a complaint that
 the Antenna Structure Registration (ASR) Number 1058250 had a tower
 light outage. A Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) was issued by the Federal
 Aviation Administration (FAA). On February 24, 2016, March 23, 2016,
 and April 22, 2016, the FAA has issued three consecutive NOTAMs (ABI
 02/021, ABI 03/028, and ABI 04/019), to a registered antenna structure
 located in Oplin, Texas, due to problems with the antenna structure's
 lighting system. FCC records show that the referenced antenna structure
 was registered to Andrews Tower, under ASR Number 1058250. The geographic
 coordinates for this antenna site are N32-10-16, W99-35-26.

	       47 C.F.R. § 17.56(a):  States that "Replacing or repairing
	       of lights, automatic control or alarm systems shall be
	       accomplished as soon as practicable." On February 24,
	       2016, March 7, 2016, March 17, 2016, March 23, 2016,
	       April 1, 2016, April 5, 2016, April 8, 2016, April 15,
	       2016, May 4, 2016 and May 10, 2016, the Dallas Office
	       asked Andrews Tower for the specific action taken to
	       correct the tower lights and a time line for completion
	       of any pending corrective action. As of May 20, 2016, the
	       Dallas Office has not received the information requested.

 In addition, your FCC Antenna Structure Registration ownership
 information for the referenced antenna structure is not updated.

	       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). The owner must also
	       immediately notify the Commission using FCC Form 854 upon
	       any change in structure height or change in ownership
	       information." As of May 20, 2016, the ASR database shows
	       that the ownership information (contact person, phone
	       number, email and physical address) is not updated.

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