To all concerned with your radio towers. DO NOT PUT THEM IN POINT ROBERTS. THIS IS NOT A DEPRESSED AREA. THERE IS A LOT OF MONEY HERE WITH PEOPLE LIKING OUR COUNTRY ATMOSPHERE WHICH MOST DEVELOPERS LIKE TO DESTROY. YOUR 5 TOWERS WILL NOT ONLY INTERFERE WITH ALL ELECTRONICS AND THE BORDER, YOU WILL INDEED CREATE A DEPRESSED , NOW LIVEABLE AREA AHD THE HEALTH HAZARD FOR US ALL WILL BE TOO GREAT. PLUS, PR IS A SMALL AREA, NOT LARGE LIKE ALL WHATCOM COUNTY NOR BC WHEE YOU ARE TO CHEAP TO GO!!! SO GO AWAY BEFORE WE ALL PAY A BIG LAW SUIT!

A bit of hyperbole, isn't it?

There is no evidence whatsoever that AM radio transmissions are a health risk. (unless you touch the towers!)

Most electronics these days are immune to AM RF, and most of the rest are sensitive to RF only because they're cheaply made.

I will have to say I'm somewhat offended by the suggestion that these towers should be shuttled of to some place poor where the locals can't afford to fight them....
