Sec. 17.23 Specifications for painting and lighting antenna structures.
Unless otherwise specified by the Commission, each new or altered
antenna structure to be registered on or after July 1, 1996, must
conform to the FAA's painting and lighting recommendations set forth on
the structure's FAA determination of ``no hazard,'' as referenced in the
following FAA Advisory Circulars: AC 70/7460-1H, ``Obstruction Marking
and Lighting,'' August 1, 1991, as amended by Change 2, July 15, 1992,
and AC 150/5345-43D, ``Specification for Obstruction Lighting
Equipment,'' July 15, 1988. These documents are incorporated by
reference in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51. The
documents contain FAA recommendations for painting and lighting
structures which pose a potential hazard to air navigation. For purposes
of this part, the specifications, standards, and general requirements
stated in these documents are mandatory. The Advisory Circulars listed
above are available for inspection at the Commission Headquarters in
Washington, DC, 2025 M Street NW., room 8112, or at the Office of the
Federal Register, 800 North Capitol Street, NW., room 700, Washington,
DC., or may be obtained from Department of Transportation, Utilization
and Storage Section (Publications), M443.2, 400 7th Street SW.,

Aviation Red Obstruction Lighting [Reserved]
Secs. 17.24-17.38 [Reserved]
High Intensity White Obstruction Lighting
Note: When authorized by the Commission, high intensity white
obstruction lighting will be used in lieu of obstruction marking and
lighting specified in Secs. 17.23 through 17.37.
In general, the number of levels of high intensity lighting
specified is dependent upon the overall height of the skeletal frame or
comparable main support structure, excluding antennas or similar
appurtenances. A white capacitor discharge omnidirectional light is
mounted on or adjacent to the appurtenance, if more than 6.10 meters (20
feet), to complement the lighting system.
Where a dual lighting system is employed, i.e., high intensity white
obstruction lighting during daylight and red obstruction lighting at
night, the omnidirectional high intensity light, if equipped with an
red color filter for nighttime illumination, may be used in lieu of the
300 mm top beacon specified in Sec. 17.24(a) and paragraph (a)(1) in
Secs. 17.25 through 17.37.
Secs. 17.39-17.43 [Reserved]
