November 27, 1972: "Idaho's fire lookouts, unmanned except during fire watches, are getting better protection from vandals. Boise National Forest officials have been equipping mountaintop lookouts with tape recorders that are activated whenever someone breaks into the lookouts. The recorders relay a message to ranger stations, fire dispatchers and the forest supervisor's office. "People who break into the buildings can't hear the alarm, they can't see the tape player and they can't disconnect it even if they rip out every wire in the place," said Harold Mead, the Boise forest's electronic technician who designed the system. Last month, a youth who broke into a lookout atop Hawley Mountain near Quartzburg was captured after a Boise County sheriff's plane and a forester from the Idaho City Ranger Station were dispatched to the scene. The youth was placed on probation and ordered to pay $157 in court costs and damages to the lookout, said forest officials." (The Greeley Daily Tribune)
