Antenna Structure Number 1007848 in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, and observed the following violation:
47 CFR § 17.6. “The antenna structure owner is responsible for maintaining the

five of the six red steady-burning side markers were extinguished.

 On February 20, 2018 after receiving information of the obstruction lighting outage, the Commission reported the obstruction 
lighting outage to the Federal Aviation Administration Outage Reporting System maintained by Lockheed Martin.  Out of 
caution, Lockheed Martin issued Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) Number 02-004.  This was further extended to May 7, 2018.   If 
Calvary Educational Broadcasting Network does not repair the obstruction lighting by May 7, 2018, the date the NOTAM will
