September 24, 1985: "In an unusual ruling, a radio station has been ordered to drastically cut power because its transmission tower bombards occupants of a fire lookout tower only 67 feet away. The fire lookouts were being exposed to unsafe levels of radio frequency radiation from the antenna of station KERG less than 35 yards away on Pratt Mountain in southern Humboldt County, state officials said. The Federal Communications Commission initially ordered the 100,000-watt station to cut power in half, then ordered it to slash to 2,000 watts until fire season ends Oct. 1, Officials said. The station had erected a copper screen shield which substantially reduced radio waves, said Jim Miranda of the state Department of Forestry, but not enough to meet state occupational health and safety standards."
