       at approximately 6:30 a.m., an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's 
       Anchorage Resident Agent  Office inspected  antenna structure #1250385

        recommendations set forth on the structure's FAA determination of `no
        hazard,'" as referenced in the relevant FAA Advisory Circulars.  The
        antenna structure registration for antenna structure #1250385

        obstruction lights installed on top of the antenna structure, in a
        manner to ensure an unobstructed view of one or more lights by a
        pilot.   At the time of inspection, the agent observed a dual
        red/white beacon light unit mounted on the top of the antenna
        structure. The unit was flashing white. No steady burning red lights 
        were observed.
