Antenna Structure Registrant )
ASR# 1006367 )
Kunia, Hawaii )
Released:  December 28, 2017
By the Los Angeles Regional Office, Region Three, Enforcement Bureau:
1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the rules of the 
Federal Communications Commission
 to SummitMedia, LLC, owner of antenna structure #1006367 in 
Kunia, Hawaii.  Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Commission’s rules, issuance of this Notice does not 
preclude the Commission’s Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) from further action if warranted, including 
issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for the violation(s) noted herein.
2. On November 17, 2017, an agent of the Bureau’s Honolulu Office (Honolulu Office) 
received a call from the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Honolulu Service Operations Center 
(SOC) reporting a tower top beacon outage on antenna structure #1006367 located on Kunia Road in 
Waipahu, Hawaii, 4.4 miles north of the H-1 Highway, with the following violations:
a. 47 C.F.R. § 17.48: “The owner of any antenna structure which is registered with the 
Commission and has been assigned lighting specifications referenced in this part: 
(a) Shall report immediately to the FAA, by means acceptable to the FAA, 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. If the lights cannot be repaired 
within the FAA's Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) period, the owner shall notify the 
FAA to extend the outage date and report a return-to-service date.”  The antenna 
structure registration for antenna structure #1006367 requires a top flashing beacon 
and at least two steady burning lights at the mid-level.  The Wheeler Army Base 
Operations in Wahiawa, Hawaii received aircraft reports of the tower top beacon 
outage and initiated a NOTAM with the FAA Flight Service Station.  The tower 
owner did not initiate the NOTAM.  An agent from the Honolulu Office subsequently 
confirmed the lighting outage reported by the FAA. 
 47 C.F.R. § 1.89.
 47 C.F.R. § 1.89(a).
b. 47 CFR § 17.56: “Replacing or repairing of lights, automatic indicators or automatic 
control or alarm systems shall be accomplished as soon as practicable.”  
3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
 and Section 
1.89 of the Commission’s rules, we seek additional information concerning the violations and any 
remedial actions taken.  Therefore, SummitMedia, LLC 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.
4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Commission’s rules, we direct SummitMedia, 
LLC to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed
