       Forfeiture for the violation(s) noted herein.^

    2. On April 2, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Atlanta Office

        together with any other information in the application showing
        service contours and/or main studio and transmitter location (State,
        county, city, street address, or other identifying information).
        These documents shall be retained for as long as they reflect
        current, accurate information regarding the station." At the time of

        of community issues during the preceding three month period. The list
        for each calendar quarter is to be filed by the tenth day of the
        succeeding calendar quarter (e.g., January 10 for the quarter
        October-December, April 10 for the quarter January-March, etc.). The
        list shall include a brief narrative describing what issues were
        given significant treatment and the programming that provided this
        treatment. The description of the programs shall include, but shall
        not be limited to, the time, date, duration, and title of each
        program in which the issue was treated." At the time of the
