The latest on the story of radiation from the tower of EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION Christian Country WOKR (GOD'S COUNTRY)/REMSEN-UTICA, NY that local residents in FLOYD, NY said was making them sick is that the residents now tell NBC affiliate WKTV (TV)/UTICA the problems have receded.
STEVE LLOYD, the local man whose complaints touched off the controversy, says that the nausea, blisters, and other symptoms he and others had experienced have subsided.
An FCC investigation of the matter turned up no apparent violations of RF radiation limits, although a full report is still pending. EMF has maintained its position that the facility is not emitting excessive radiation throughout the dispute.
