Greetings, TowerTalkians --
With all the recent talk about the proposed BPL, I got a kick out of this
article in the local paper about HV power lines.
"Right now, it's kind of low," said Ted Wiegert, whose Malty property
lies under the power lines. "But serveral times last week, I woke up and the
house was just buzzing (from the power lines)."
He also said that he was shocked once from his own fence. Because of the
high voltage, power can drop off the lines, charging metal nearby, Bonneville
Power officials acknowledge. Seattle Times, January 21, 2004.

Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions
