   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules, to Union Pacific Railroad Company
       registrant of antenna structure # 1013313 in Traver, California.

    2. On April 16, 2008, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's San Francisco
       Office inspected registered antenna structure # 1013313 located
       northeast of the intersection of Highway 99 and County J36/Merritt
       Drive in Traver, California, and observed the following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.4(g): "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." At the time of the
        inspection, no Antenna Structure Registration Number was posted or
        visible on the fence surrounding the antenna structure, or on the
        structure or ancillary buildings contained by the fence.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 17.4(a): The owner of an antenna structure that requires
        notice of proposed construction to the Federal Aviation
        Administration must register the structure with the Commission.
        Information provided to the Commission must be accurate. The FCC
        registration for antenna structure #1013313 states the latitude and
        longitude of the structure as 36-o27'14.8" north latitude and
        119-o29'17.4" west longitude and in the city of Traver, California.
        The FAA study number 2008-AWP-2718-OE associated with the FCC
        registration number reflects the same location. At the time of the
        inspection, the San Francisco agent observed the actual location of
        the structure to be approximately 36-o27' 13.3" north latitude and
        119-o29' 20.2" west longitude.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Union Pacific Railroad
       Company, must submit a written statement concerning this matter within
       20 days of release of this Notice. The response must fully explain
       each violation, must contain a statement of the specific action(s)
       taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and should
