You Communicate Through This…

Imagine a world where these cell towers weren’t even thought of yet, a landscape devoid of them. A world without that handy little device stuffed in your pocket, purse or fanny pack. A world where you can’t instantly chat with friends across the globe.

These towers are of course just one piece of our connected world, other links such as the thousands of miles of Trans-Atlantic cables crossing many oceans laid upon the ocean floor, and satellite communications of course.

They are all just one link in a chain that crosses hundreds of thousands of miles. Next time you see one of these towers, consider the complexity of the technology you use each day and how wonderful it is, yet for all of it’s power, it is rather fragile. Just like when your phone screen cracks!

  1. Some of us grew up without cell phones or Towers. No imagination needed, here. Life was safer than and if you needed to talk to someone, you dialed the # on the phone attached to the wall, and prepared to sit in one place for a long time.

    • That’s how it was! And a slower paced life too. I remember the corded phone in the kitchen as a kid, it would stretch into other rooms! And it had the rotary dial too!

  2. 🤔???
    5G cell towers are more dangerous than other cell towers for two main reasons. First, 5G is ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity. 3G and 4G use between a 1 to 4 gigahertz frequency. 5G uses between a 24 to 90 gigahertz frequency.

    • Any antenna regardless of frequency has the potential to give you an RF burn on your skin if too close, depending on the transmitted power. The cell towers are not dangerous. Don’t worry about this, you won’t get nuked! 😎

      • I have an EMF meter. I used it throughout my apartment and levels are in the blue safe zone. But when I use it next to my WiFi it goes off the chart in the red!

        Doesn’t the length of time you are exposed have an impact!?

        Go to the Settings/General/About/Legal information on you iPhone. They warn of this very fact.

        • This has never been scientifically proven. Phones use so little transmit power, it’s almost not there, hence the extreme sensitivity of the high gain antennas on the towers. Your meter will of course pick up the weak RF field around the router. Mine is always in full view in my home, never know it’s there.

          • Then I guess that the National Institute of Health (NIH), Navy Studies, NIEHS and other government studies account for little to nothing scientifically!?

            Only the future will tell!

            • Look, I’m coming strictly from my own experience with radio gear and antenna systems over the last twenty plus years. These damned jillion dollar government studies are a joke, a waste of taxpayer money. Do not worry. You will not get cancer or a melted brain. Don’t believe the lies and spin. I also use a five watt hand-held radio in my face, done it for decades, my brain hasn’t melted yet.
