In the Matter of
New Jersey Turnpike Authority
File No. EB-09-NY-0006
ASR # 1236123
Secaucus, NJ
NOV No. V200932380016


Released: January 21, 2009

By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement Bureau:
1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the
Commission's Rules1 to New Jersey Turnpike Authority ("NJTA"), owner of antenna
structure 1236123 in Secaucus, NJ.
2. On January 9, 2009, an agent of the Commission's New York Office inspected antenna
structure 1236123 located at Interchange 18W, Secaucus, NJ 08628, and observed the
following violations:
a. 47 C.F.R. 17.4 (g): "The Antenna Structure Registration Number
must be displayed in a conspicuous place so that it is readily visible
near the base of the antenna structure." At the time of inspection, no
Antenna Structure Registration Number was readily visible near the
base of the tower.
b. 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 for
antenna structure 1236123 still shows "granted" status and NJTA
failed to notify the Commission of a change of contact name and
telephone number. In order to come into compliance with the
Commission's rules, NJTA should file FCC Form 854 notifying the
Commission that the tower has been constructed and provide the
Commission with the correct contact name and telephone number.

147 C.F.R. 1.89.

each violation, must contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to correct each
violation and preclude recurrence, and should include a time line for completion of
pending corrective action(s). The response must be complete in itself and signed by a
principal or officer of NJTA. All replies and documentation sent in response to this
Notice should be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to
the following address:
