NOTICE OF VIOLATION

Released: October 31, 2013

By the Resident Agent, Anchorage Resident Agent Office, Western Region, Enforcement Bureau:
1.
This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the
Commission’s Rules,1 to Tanana Valley State Fair Association (Tanana), registrant of antenna structure #
1005017 in Fairbanks, Alaska. Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Commission’s 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 noted herein.2
2.
On September 18, 2013, agents of the Enforcement Bureau’s Anchorage Resident Agent
Office inspected antenna structure #1005017 purported to be located at 1648 College Road in Fairbanks,
Alaska, and observed the following violation:
a.
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.” At the time of inspection, the agents did not locate an antenna structure
for antenna structure #1005017. The antenna structure registration for #1005017 fails
to indicate dismantlement of this structure.
