Section 17.4 is necessary to assure a uniform registration process for owners of antenna structures, to identify antenna structure owners, and to identify malfunctioning lights on antenna structures. The information will be used by the Commission during investigations related to air safety or radio frequency interference. A registration number will be issued to identify antenna structure owners in order to enforce the congressionally mandated provisions related to the owners.
