   which vest authority in the Federal Communications Commission to issue
   licenses to radio stations when it is found that the public interest,
   convenience, and necessity would be served thereby, and to require the
   painting, and/or illumination of antenna structures if and when in its
   judgment such structures constitute, or there is reasonable possibility
   that they may constitute, a menace to air navigation.

   antenna structure registration and standards with respect to the
   Commission's consideration of proposed antenna structures which will
   serve as a guide to antenna structure owners.
