Proposed Fox Expansion

April 11, 1993

Your pro 20th Century Fox editorial (March 23) shows that no one at The Times lives in or near the Cheviot Hills/Rancho Park area. Do you know how much additional traffic such a move by the studio will create? Even Fox, although in denial about the effect of the traffic, is planning to widen streets and add stop signs and bumps to slow the additional traffic.

But the traffic isn't the worst of it. Fox officials refuse to tell us what the maximum power the towers of their television station's microwave transmitter will create. There will be four satellite sending dishes and although officials say they will never exceed the National Standard Institute's old standard of 5,000 microwatts per centimeter, the John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory says that that level of continued exposure can cause severe damage to the eyes and to the brain.
