As another said, restricted area is spelled out in 10CFR20. But your UFSAR
(the boundaries of your license) spell out what each station MUST do.
10CFR20.1901 and 1902 show what must be posted and the words for compliance.
All other shapes, designators such as “RCA”, “REP” or “RWP” is in the UFSAR if
it is a license requirement. Shapes of signs, sizes, and such is
discretionary. I do know- to change to the new signs will be a significant
expense with only a perceived benefit. (My opinion) Do you really notice the
shape of the stop sign or what the color of the letters are? Sue
