       including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for
       the violations noted herein.^

        Antenna Structure Registration Number must be weather-resistant and
        of sufficient size to be easily seen at the base of the antenna
        structure." At the time of the inspection, the Antenna Structure
        Registration Number was not posted.
