   A copy of the current station license was not posted at the station, and
   there was no copy of the license in the public inspection file. The

   the station's transmission system.

   or his designee must date and sign the log, initiate any corrective action
   which may be necessary, and advise the station licensee of any condition
   which is repetitive.
