True, but as an ex-telecoms person if you've got to be near a base station, it's best to be right underneath it: the greatest signal intensity from the antennas hits the deck about 150 to 300m away from the base station (depending on configuration). Also, there is still quite a bit of debate about which situation is "best": being near a base station or having a mobile clamped to your head. Then there's the question of TV & radio arrays, which are waaaaaay more powerful than mobile phone sitesYes, especially when they rent out hospital roof-
space for GSM basestations. Which, I think you'll
find, are slightly more powerful.
Holy fcuk... reallyAt the BBC's big Daventry transmitter, you can stand in the field amongst the array with a fluorescent tube in your hand and if you hold it the right way round, it will glow faintly!
:lol:Just think, with a ****-off base station on the roof, they could put it above the X-Ray dept and have a body-sized gap in the shielding. Lay the patient down underneath and voila!...free X-Rays! I wonder if I could patent that...
