ultimate antenna farm radiates too much rf



i saw this on cnn yesterday. the vatican radio with their vast antenna farm gives off 
too much rf that is dangerous to nearby village people.

Vatican Radio said it would drop half of its medium wave transmissions starting on April 16, 
calling it a "goodwill gesture." 
however, i think the vatican does not have to do anything as they are an independent 
city-state and not under any obligation to the italian government to comply with rf 
regulations. should be interesting to see how it plays out.
