AT&T Point Reyes Radio (KMI) Warning

AT&T Point Reyes, CA High Seas Radio Receiver Site (KMI), 8 March 2003.


This sign was at the receiver shack gate. It clearly predates the 1984 Bell System divestiture, judging from it's weathered condition and the old Bell logo. The AT&T high seas HF radiotelephone service was discontinued in 1999; the KMI facilities were abandoned shortly thereafter. The site was razed in 2004.




Willful or malicious destruction of or injury to communications facilities used or intended for use for military or civil defense functions is a violation of the laws of the United States. Violations are punishable by imprisonment for up to 10 years or a fine of up to $10,000 or both.
