       (ConocoPhillips), registrant of antenna structure # 1280143 in Lysite,

    2. On June, 8, 2012, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Denver District
       Office inspected antenna structure # 1280143 located 0.7 miles East of
       Lysite, WY on Badwater Road and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.4(g): "Except as described in paragraph (h) of this
        section, 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. Materials used to display the Antenna
        Structure Registration Number must be weather-resistant and of
        sufficient size to be easily seen at the base of the antenna
        structure." The agent observed that the Antenna Structure

        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." During the
        inspection, the agent observed that construction of antenna structure
        # 1280143 had been completed, however, the FCC's antenna structure
        registration database showed the structure's status as "granted."
        Since the tower has been built, the status must be changed to
