- Most people are unware of the Radio Frequency (RF) radiation
they are exposed to. Radiation is usually associated with radium, weapons,
medical treatments, nuclear power plants and smoke detectors. Before we
discuss covert cell towers and other numerous radiating antennas being
installed with impunity, we should review the RF spectrum. This will be
helpful in understanding how the radio spectrum affects us. We will not
discuss HAARP, which is in itself a unique area of the radio spectrum in
the shortwave band.
- There are essentially TWO types of harmful radiation
(not including light such as ultraviolet):
- A. GOVT. CONTROLLED RADIOACTIVE SOURCES: Power plants,
smoke detectors, medical treatment sources, etc...
- B. UNCONTROLLED RF EXPOSURE: Radio Frequency devices
of many types. The RD spectrum is regulated by the FCC in America, and
other similar regulatory agencies that exist in other countries around
the world through international radio agreements. Yet most of them appear
to be very unconcerned about health effects.
- We will concentrate on the latter in this esay - UNCONTROLLED
RF EXPOSURE. RF signals are without a doubt an invisible form of pollution.
Most people see a smokestack smoking and scream "OH ! Look at that
pollution !" But as we will see, this is not really the most immediate,
serious health hazard. What IS known about RF, is that unhealthy effects
from it are related to an almost infinte combination of each of the five
- 1. FREQUENCY - Certain frequencies are absorbed in the
body more than others. For example, the new riot control weapons the Pentagon
have operates in the Super-High Frequency (SHF) region. This frequency
is about 15 times higher than a conventional microwave oven. Although SHF
is not absorbed into the skin, it boils perspiration on the skin causing
- 2. DURATION - How long you are exposed to the radiation,
or how long the transmitter is "on."
- 3. DISTANCE - How close you are to the antenna. Energy
levels decrease with the square of the distance.
- 4. POWER LEVEL - What the strength of the signal is.
This is measured in microwatts, milliwatts and watts. One microwatt is
a millionth of a watt, One milliwatt is one-thousandth of a watt. For example,
1,000 milliwatts is one watt.
- Cell phone power levels are often in the 100 milliwatt
to 4 watt class. In the past, older bag type cell phones people carried
around, were up near 4 watts of power. Getting a strong signal was no problem.
Today's pocket cell phones are in the 100 milliwatt area. Reducing the
power goes with size reduction and a smaller battery. This also reduces
cell size, which actually is beneficial
- as I'll explain latter.
- 5. SUSCEPTABILITY - Like tobacco smoke, you cannot tell
if you will or will not become ill from RF exposure. But RF heating of
body tissues and possible DNA alteration (mutation) happens to 100% of
the people exposed to RF. The amount of heating is determined by a combination
of the four factors above. The immune system is responsible for cleaning
up mutant DNA. But can the immune system clean it out all the defective
DNA and dead cells, and do this indefinitely ? Modern medical science knows
there are limits to how much of an assault on the body the immune system
can deal with.
- WHY RF IS SIMILAR TO RADIOACTIVITY
- For those familiar with radiation exposure hazards, the
striking parallels to radioactivity are obvious here. RF Frequency is similar
to the radiation type, like Alpha, Beta or Gamma. In fact, each of these
particles move as a frequency above that of ultraviolet light, and are
actually composed of high speed particles. Each of the particle types affects
the human body and systems in different ways. RF power level is like the
number of particles per second of a radioactive source. Both duration and
distance also translate into the realm of radiation exposure.
- We know that certain radioactive particles from Alpha
particle emitters cause the most damage to lung cells when inhaled. Alpha
particle ionizing radiation alters DNA in cells, and can create pre-cursor
changes leading to cancer. Tissues and structures in the body that appear
on scans and x-rays are sometimes diagnosed as a "pre-cancerous condition"
by doctors. Older camping mantle lanterns were very radioactive, because
they were made from the element thorium. (The author of this paper found
such a radioactive mantle in an older propane lantern. It is believed that
most of these are now off the market.)
- The reason for discussing the above subject, is to show
that anything which alters cellular DNA can be extremely unhealthy. And
this is both nuclear radiation and RF. There are also chemical and effects
from ultraviolet as well.
- THE RF SPECTRUM - WHAT DIFFERENT RF FREQUENCIES DO TO
THE HUMAN BODY
- For our European friends, please note that all the frequencies
referenced below are for the American and Canadian radio spectrum. The
lowest frequencies are radio waves, that are actually the same as frequencies
as the audio sound which comes out of your speakers. This called VLF, or
Very Low Frequency. These waves have wavelengths measured in thousands
of miles. They pass through the body without damage.
- Commercial AM radio signals, use waves that are also
quite long and pass through the body with relative ease. These are also
waves, whose wavelengths are measured in hundreds of feet. Shortwave signals
are also very long, and this part of the spectrum reaches up to a part
of the miltary band, located below TV channel 2.
- Decades ago, people could go to a doctor for aches and
pains and be treated with a Diathermy machine. This machine was essentially
a shortwave radio transmitter, and operated with a curved antenna that
fits the human body. When placed against the skin, the antenna radiated
energy that was absorbed deep in the body's tissues. A sufficient power
level of RF energy will cause currents of electricity to flow in these
tissues, thereby creating warmth. These machines are probably outlawed
by now and died a quiet death in America. RF energy causes molecules to
collide with one another creating heat. This occurs in tisuues like muscles,
as well as blood.
- FM stations (located in the radio band near TV channel
6) and over the air television channels 2 through 13 are all in the VHF
band. These signals can also pass through the human body without harm.
These waves are measured in several feet.
- When you look at any TV antenna, multiply the width of
the antenna by four, and that will be the wavelength of the wave from the
TV transmitter. Hence the term 1/4 wavelength, which is a design rule for
- Television channels 14 through 83 are in the UHF region.
Channel 83 is actually just below analog cell phone frequencies. Progammable
police scanners scan police channels that are very close to cell phone
- (Privacy laws force scanners to block the cell phone
- WHERE DOES MICROWAVE BEGIN ?
- We are now entering the realm where RF begins to affect
the human body at a distance. It is generally considered that any frequency
above TV channel 83 is microwave. There is a "fuzzy" line between
microwave and non-microwave radio signals. In fact, the upper channels
of the UHF band in America are considered the near microwave band. Radio
signals operating with short wavelengths measured in centimeters, can increase
the temperature of water and tissues at a distance. Although most people
equate this only with microwave ovens, this effects happens at lower frequencies.
Complex proteins present in blood also break down into toxic materials.
These invisible, toxic compounds can cause increasing muscle, joint and
nerve pain in people over time as toxins build up in the body. Alteration
of proteins and toxin generation not only happens to the body when exposed
to RF, but also to food in microwave ovens. Many people have put their
microwave ovens on the curb, when they discovered their pain was linked
to microwaved food. The effects of microwaved food on the immune system
are largely unexplored by mainstream science,
- but are well known by those that suffer from them.
- In reality, Diathermy treatments work on the same principle
that microwave ovens operate on, except that microwave ovens use higher
power levels and higher frequencies. In later years after Diathermy became
popular, it was found that higher RF frequencies allowed heating at a distance,
without direct electrode contact. The story about the microwave oven invention
is that it was discovered by accident, by an engineer working in an electronics
lab. He found the radiation from the equipment melted a candy bar in his
pocket. Amana is credited with building and selling the first commonly
available oven - the infamous RadarRange. The discovery reminds one of
the sticky-note origin story. Another accidental discovery - found while
3M was trying to create a better adhesive..
- For many years, everyone treated microwaves as nothing
to be concerned about. No one learned from the lessons of Madam and Pierre
Curie who tinkered with radium a century ago, and died from radiation poisoning.
Remember the comparison of RF with radioactiviting above ? Several decades
ago, a man walked past the front of a telephone relay dish on the roof
of a building. He suffered no immediate ill effects, but died some days
later in the hospital as his organs began to fail. His organs had absorbed
the microwave radiation, and were permanently and fatally damaged. He was
essentially cooked and didn't know it. If he has walked past a sufficient
amount of Plutonium, the same thing would happen but in a different way.
He would have still died.
- RADIATION BY ANY OTHER NAME IS STILL RADIATION
- Today, ALL microwave transmitting dishes and antennas
must have radiation stickers on them, if people can become near them. Located
on the front nose-cone of aircraft are small warning stickers if they have
radar. THe radar MUST be turned off when the aircraft is on the ground,
as it is hazardous to ground personnel. Warning stickers use the universal
radiation warning symbol, of three triangles inside a circle. This the
identical symbol used for radioactive materials. Many in the armed forces
know the stories and often unpleasant fate of those that unknowingly walked
in front of operating aircraft radar.
- C band microwave remote uplink trucks used at sports
events use power levels typically on the order of 120 watts. Fortunately
all the RF energy is pointed upwards towards a satellite more than 22,000
- Now with all that said, how are WE being irradiated ?
The effects of low level radiation are only now beginning to be understood\
- from the efforts of lab research around the world.
- There are a number of RF frequencies the FCC has set
aside, that have unlimited civilian use. Although related unlicensed transmitter
operation is usually limited to short range digital devices like garage
door openers and cordless phones, low level RF may have a cumulative effect
that is not yet understood. For a more in-depth look at complex microwave
frequency allocation assignment by the FCC see .
- Here is a quick list of common sources of radiation:
- 1. CELL PHONES - Here the antenna is very close to the
brain, and many studies have been done on this. Recent studies done in
Europe show that tumors can be induced in rats, which are exposed to the
same power levels and distances that normal cell phone users are from the
- 2. CORDLESS PHONES - In reality, these are as detrimental
as cell phones because they operate near the microwave frequencies of cell
phones (microwave.) In some ways, they could be worse than cell phones
because many people spend more time on these.
- 3. GARAGE DOOR OPENERS - A source of radiation when the
button is pressed.
- 4. WIRELESS PDAs and NOTEBOOK COMPUTERS - These work
very much like cell phones, with the same potential effects.
- 5. MICROWAVE ALARM SYSTEM SENSORS - This is one area
NO ONE talks about. These are common in homes and businesses. Although
the power level is in the microwatt realm, one may sit exposed to it all
day, every day, sometimes just a few feet away. Again, think about it in
terms of exposure time vs. energy levels.
- 6. BLUE TOOTH WIRELESS DEVICES - Operate in the lower
- 7. WIRELESS VIDEO CAMERAS - Operate in the microwave
region above analog cell phones.
- 8. TV EXTENDERS - Used to transmit video and sound without
wires from one room to another in a home. These also operate
- in the microwave region above analog cell phones.
- 9. SATELLITES - Walk outside, anywhere, and you will
be bombarded with RF from satellites, both civilian and military. If you
could visibly "see" these sources, you would see points of "light"
from the 22,500 mile high Clarke belt of stationary satellites. This belt
of satellites rise from the western horizon and arcs across the sky to
the east. There will also be hundreds of moving lights in the sky from
lower geosynchronous orbits. Some of these are also satellites the military
uses that send signals to earth, too. Many military satellites have high-powered
optical sensors, with huge telephoto lenses that watch everything from
orbit. These satellites orbit about 200 miles up and contrary to public
belief, can actually read a newspaper headline from orbit. The portrayal
of distant fuzzy images as seen in "Patriot Games" is far from
the truth. And these satellites bombard the earth with more RF radiation
as they send their data to earth.
- 10. POLICE RADIOS - Police officers now have antennas
on their microphones, also have a similar risk to that of cell phone users
since the antenna is located near the head. There is also radiation from
the antennas on their vehicles, too.
- 11. WALKIE-TALKIE TYPE RADIOS - In decades past, business
radios operated in the lower VHF band.
- These were known as business band radios, and are still
in use today. No known ill effects are known to have originated from these
radios. Today's family channel radios operate in the 400Mhz UHF band, near
TV channel 14.
- 12. DOOR OPENERS - Often used in grocery and discount
stores, these open the door when you pass under a microwave motion detector.
You pass directly under the unit when you enter or exit the store, receiving
more microwave radiation.
- 13. SECURITY FOR STORES - Used in WalMart, video rental
and other stores, these exit portals generate an RF field you are forced
to walk through upon entering and exiting the store.The square "Be
Kind Please Rewind" tag is often a tuned printed circuit behind the
label, that will trigger the security system when passed through a portal
at the exit. Libraries use a very similar system with thin resonanting
devices slipped into the spine of books. These systems operate in the lower
microwave band, allowing the use of small coils (or no coils at all) because
of the high frequencies employed.
- 14. CELL TOWERS - Last but not least, cell tower antennas
which operate at power levels of about 10 watts FOR EACH ANTENNA on the
tower. Some use higher wattage than that. These directional antennas divide
a geographical area into cells of service.
- There are many more toys, products and devices too numerous
to mention here. We are immersed in a virtual SEA of RF energy, with cell
towers as one of the strongest continuous sources of RF energy.
- MORE ABOUT CELL PHONES
- When you turn your cell phone on, the cell phone company
carrier you have uses a computer network connected to all the cell towers,
to invisibly command your phone to change to an available frequency. This
is why numerous people can talk in a given cell phone area and not hear
one another. When a cell phone is on, it transmits frequently to notify
the phone company it is actually on. As you walk or drive, the cell system
determines signal strength and switches you connection to another tower
near you. Even when you are not talking, the phone can still radiate energy.
If you have it in your shirt or pants pocket or on your belt, body tissues
around the antenna on the phone are being irradiated with RF energy. This
is an inescapable fact.
- Since this is a multi-billion dollar industry, it's very
unlikely the public will be told about the health hazards of cell phones.
This is about as likely as the public being properly informed about microwave
oven risks. As you read on, you'll see the similarities between the two
microwave based technologies.
- COVERT ANTENNAS
- The closer to a radiating antenna you are, the higher
the health risk there is. In an effort to increase channel availability
for the increasing number of cell phone users, cells have to be made smaller.
These are often known as microcells. In the past, cell towers typically
covered a 10 mile cell. Microcells today are often less than one mile,
depending on local population size. More towers are required to be assured
a cell phone will get a channel when talk is pressed, or when someone answers
a cell phone.
- In 2002, industry officials stated that there were more
than 128,000 cell towers across America. About 25% of these were hidden
towers, and the remaining number of them were traditional types.  Keep
in mind that cell tower density is directly connected to population density.
There are still parts of North America where no cell towers exist, because
population density makes them economically unfeasable.
- There is a map showing cell tower proliferation. Althought
the paper is four years old, it details graphically the density and distribution
of cell towers across America at that time, which has greatly increased.
- Antennas come in many forms, including trees, cactus,
gas station signs and even replacement church steeples Below are some photos
of hidden cell towers manufactured by the Larson Company:

- These are also a source of radiation, very similar
to that of cell towers.
- Below is a picture from Mobile Mark's website
of their office LAN antenna product. This is a local area network antenna
that is ceiling mounted in an office area. What's a few more milliwatts

- JOLLY OLD ENGLAND IS IRRADIATED AS WELL
- In England, angry mobs of people have torn down these
gas station signs (like the one shown above) they learned to have cell
antennas inside. When they asked workmen installing an antenna, "what
are you doing ?" the answer was "you don't want to know."
There are news stories in the past, of people that loosen bolts at night
and bring down such towers. In America, antenna arrays are very often hidden
in plain, white tapered church steeples in suburban areas. A custom built,
modernized fiberglass copy of the original wooden church steeple is lowered
into place with a crane, complete with antennas already inside. Cell equipment
is also hidden from public view. But the radiation is still there.
- Micro-cell anternnas are designed to serve a small cell
area. These antennas are not 100 feet or more high like common cell towers
in America, but often just 10 to 20 feet above the ground. However, these
antennas also radiate microwave RF energy closer to people, too. Someone
could stand or work beside such an antenna and not realize the effect it
may have on them. Many are hidden in church steeple replacements, including
Big-Ben-like structures, complete with working clocks on each of the four
- Workmen installing a near ground level antenna inside
a sign (like the Shell station sign shown above) have people ask "what
are you doing ?" The answer they heard was "you don't want to
know." There are numerous UK news stories of people that loosen bolts
and bring down such towers. In America, antenna arrays are very often hidden
plain, white tapered churc steeples in suburban areas. Just out of reach
for the public. 
- CELL PHONE RADIATION STUDIES
- In general, all of us MUST keep in mind that the human
body is an electrical system. It will be, and is affected by, outside RF
energy fields that can promote unwanted nerve stimulation, cancer, heating
effects, and many other unwanted effects.
- A comparison table for telephone effective radiation
head exposure has been developed to provide reference values.  This
value varies considerably for dozens of different cell phone models tested.
DNA breakdown is among the most disturbing findings of studies done, which
can lead to illness and tumors. There are now new links to brain cancer
being uncovered as you read this. There is new concern over those that
wear cell phones on their belts, because of the close proximity of the
antenna to kidneys. The liver which can rebuild itself to some degree after
being damaged, but your kidneys cannot.
- One notices that RF exposure studies in the media from
Europe are much more common and considerably more vocal than those done
in America. Publishing negative study results in North America will have
a negative effect on the billion dollar market, and subsequently affect
stock in cell phone companies. Cell companies have managed to keep the
lid nailed shut on the box, in so far as mainstream media are concerned,
but this can only last for so long. I personally was not convinced of the
damage potential of low level RF radiation for more than 20 years. That
is, until reading a number of test results, all saying very much the same
- about observed detrimental effects on living organisms.
- At least one such study  on health effects was done
in Australia. Note the usual scientific cautiousness expressed here, even
though other studies have linked RF exposure to tumor growth. Its interesting
to note the scientist's other comments, that thermal temperature can increase
the negative effects of RF exposure:
- EXTRACT START:
- "Researchers in Australia have reported one of the
first scientific hypotheses that normal mobile phone use can lead to cancer.
The research group, lead by radiation expert Dr Peter French, principal
scientific officer at the Centre for Immunology Research at St Vincent's
Hospital in Sydney, said that mobile phone frequencies well below current
safety levels could stress cells in a way that has been shown to increased
susceptibility to cancer.
- The paper, published in the June issue of the science
journal Differentiation, says that repeated exposure to mobile phone radiation
acts as a repetitive stress, leading to continuous manufacture of heat
shock proteins within cells.
- Heat shock proteins are always present in cells at a
low level, but are manufactured in larger amounts when the cell is stressed
by heat or other environmental factors. They repair other proteins that
are adversely affected by the conditions, and are part of the cell's normal
reaction to stress. However, if they are produced too often or for too
long, they are known to initiate cancer and increase resistance to anti-cancer
- No link shown - Dr. French emphasised that no link has
yet seen shown between the specific biological effects of mobile phone
radiation and cancer, but that there was now a theoretical framework for
such an effect that could be investigated. His previous work has included
showing that the production of histamine, a chemical involved in asthma,
can be nearly doubled after exposure to cellular frequencies.
- To date, most safety levels have been set on the assumption
that damage is caused by heating effects of radio waves in human tissue,
much higher than the levels at which Dr French claims heat shock proteins
- His co-authors include Professor Ron Penny, the director
of the Centre and one of Australia's leading experts in the cellular effects
of HIV, and Professor David McKenzie, head of applied physics at Sydney
- EXTRACT END
- SO WHAT IS THE TRUTH ?
- And even though numerous studies exist that prove the
negative effects of low level RF fields on the human body, still there
also those that claim no negative effects exist. So which is true ? The
more realistic studies are those that actually simulate human conditions,
where rats in a cage were exposed to the same frequencies, power level
and distance from the antenna as people are. Changes to their brain structure
were observed after necropsies (animal autopsies) were performed.
- This is the type of science that ALL researchers should
concentrate on - duplicating human cell phone conditions. People often
mistakenly still think that since they are not talking on the phone, it
isn't transmitting. To prove this, all one needs to do is to call a phone
from another phone, and then call it when its off. Cell systems ping the
phone whenever someone calls it even if they don't answer, as well as perdiodically
pinging it (covert tracking) even when no one is using it. Pinging commands
the phone's transmitter circuits power up and respond, which subsequently
generates microwave radiation. The user has no control over these operations
if the phone is in standby. Many newer phones today cannot be turned off,
unless the battery pack is removed. This does not disable the satellite
tracking chip however.
- CONCLUSIONS AND COMMENTARY
- We are being relentlessly bombarded both indoors and
outdoors by many different forms of radiation. As more and more cell phones
proliferate like reproducing rabbits out of control, radio bandwidth and
channel limitations force companies to add more microcells. Many towers
in cities will become obsolete, as these will serve too large of an area.
The towers will be most likely converted to other mind control and tracking
tasks we won't discuss here. Microcells are worse for humans as these directly
result in more RF radiation, as a result of being located closer to people
at ground level. There are no other options to keep the cell network operating,
because of the limited nature of cell phone technology. Unfortunately the
average person won't care, as long as their phone works when they pick
it up. Increased RF exposure will inevitably lead to more illness from
compromised immune systems, nervous system, brain disorders, organ problems,
tumors and cancer.
- This problem is very much like cancer. An interesting
fact about cancer is that everyone has a different susceptability to it.
Some people can smoke their entire lives and not become ill, yet live to
be 99 years old. Others cannot. Some can drink hard alcohol their entire
lives and never have health problems, while others cannot. Cell phone radiation
susceptability will likely inevitably prove to be this way. The studies
show that RF radiation exposure can be just as harmful as smoking. People
using cell phones and wearing them daily like jewelry should keep that
in mind. Pagers are harmless, because they do not emit radiation (unless
it is a two-way pager.)
- The problem is you don't know how susceptable your body
is until its too late. Do you want to wait to find out the hard way ? Is
your life and health insurance current ?
- All the time we see cell phone foolishness. People often
chuckle, sneer and shake their heads at those hooked on cigarettes standing
outside stores, puffing away and working hard to accomplish heart attacks,
strokes and cancer. These same laughing people then go into a store and
place a call on their cell phone, to irradiate themselves.
- You hear can easily overhear highly intellectual conversations
like this one in a store, while watching people PAYING to irradiate themselves.
(Doesn't this remind you of smoking ? Paying to become deathly ill ?)
- Here's one conversation I heard:
