[AMRadio] "Hot" Broadcast Towers

At the WRR (FM 101.1)  main and back up sites here in Dallas, someone thought it would be a good idea to install electrostatic air filters. I gotta tell you it's no fun having part of your body in the PA cavity of a transmitter that runs at somewhere between 8 and 12 or so KV on the plate and 700 or so on the screen even though you know everything is discharged and grounded, when on of those %^#@(&&*^^^&((*&$% filters arcs over!!! I decided we can live without them.
