LETTER: Residents on both side of the border need to work together to fight … – South Delta Leader

LETTER: Residents on both side of the border need to work together to fight …

Russ Roberts‘s insight:

This angry letter concerning those "monstrous 150-foot towers" of this AM broadcast station gave me a mild chuckle.  For once, amateur radio operators weren’t on the receiving end of community ire.  This article is full of NIMBY (not in my backyard) sentiments and overblown charges that the proposed towers will somehow ruin the quality of life in these border cities.  If the cross border communities wish to stop the expansion of this 50 KW directional station, they should cite specific studies showing how this station endangers life…That means demonstrable results, statistics, and recorded health events.  On Hawaii Island, residents get inundated with the same poorly-defined arguments against cellualar telephone towers.  One should base opposition on facts and results, not emotional tirades.  It may well be that this radio station presents a real danger to the community, but where are the studies, facts, and results backing up the community position.  Has anyone called for a formal study to investigate these fears?  Chicken Little is alive and well in a society poorly versed in science and objective thinking.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
