            Structure Registration Number must be  displayed 
            in a  conspicuous place  so that  it is  readily 
            visible   near   the   base   of   the   antenna 
            structure.''  The  antenna registration  numbers 
            were not posted on structures 2, 3, 4, and 5.

            carrier level...''  At the time of inspection  a

            section.  The  spurious signal  was measured  to 
            be 30 dB below the carrier frequency.
