To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Pennsylvania Right to Know Act, I hereby request the following records:

-Please provide a copy of Police Officer Edward Winschel’s Friday, February 17, 2012 phone intake report, regarding a complaint made by Helena Csorba concerning the use of illegal frequencies.

- I reported that I was feeling stinging and burning on the back of my head and neck. As an engineer, my research showed that a Spectrum Analyzer would be able to measure the injurious, stinging and burning frequencies.

- Officer Winschel said he would get back to me on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 (after Presidents Day Monday) since as a small police department, they did not have access to a $50,000 Spectrum Analyzer. Officer Winschel said he will contact Allegheny County and Pittsburgh departments to get the analyzer.

- Please provide the police call log, police report, incident report and notes; including notes by Officer Winschel of any discussions with the Borough of Etna, Police Chief, regarding the complaint.

- The complaint call was made on February 17, 2012. The Xfinity / Comcast call log shows the call as 14 minutes 50 seconds. The call was made to Etna Police phone number (412) 781-6271.

- Please provide copies of the follow-up report(s) regarding the complaint.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
