In the Matter of
The Estate of John C. Aegerter
File No. EB-FIELDNER-12-00003225
Antenna Structure Registrant
ASR # 1033541
NOV No. V201232320008
Delafield, Wisconsin


Released: September 4, 2012

By the District Director, Chicago District Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement Bureau:
1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the Commission’s rules,1
to the Estate of John C. Aegerter. John C. Aegerter, now deceased, was the registrant of antenna
structure #1033541 in Delafield, Wisconsin.
2. On July 9, 2012, an agent, in response to a complaint that the top beacon was extinguished,
inspected antenna structure #1033541 located adjacent to 486 Cedar Valley Court, Delafield,
Wisconsin, and observed the following violation:
47 C.F.R. § 17.51(a): “All red obstruction lighting shall be exhibited from
sunset to sunrise unless otherwise specified.” The antenna structure
registration for antenna structure #1033541 requires a top flashing beacon and
at least two steady burning lights at approximately two-thirds and one-third
levels. At the time of the inspection, the agent observed extinguishment of the
top flashing beacon.
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.” The Antenna Structure Registration
(ASR) database still identifies John C. Aegerter as the registrant of antenna
structure #1033541. The Estate of Mr. Aegerter must file an FCC Form 854
in order to update the ownership information in the ASR database.
