November - December 2016

This free newsletter is published by EMR Aware, a citizens' group based in Northern NSW Australia. It contains information on the health, environmental, and social impacts of modern electro-technologies. This is offered in the pubic interest to encourage a fair and balanced discussion of the topics at hand. Particular attention is paid to material that may not be made widely available by industry and their Government regulators.

We invite readers to consider the scientific evidence and trending opinion throughout this and prior newsletters. There seems little doubt a tobacco-style cover-up of the adverse effects of EMR is underway by those reliant upon its profitability or surveillance potential. You can help reddress this situation by forwarding a link to this web page to as many interested persons, organisations, and social media sites as possible.

Over time, web content may disappear or move. If you encounter a broken link, try a search using the article's title, or access similar content via the hosting website's home page. Anyone wishing to be notified when new editions of our newsetter become available may do so by sending an email with the word "subscribe" in the subject line.

5G and Millimeter Waves

The forthcoming 5G phone network will operate within the millimeter wave band at radar-like frequencies ranging from 24GHz to 95GHz. FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly advises this "will require a ten-fold or greater siting of wireless towers and antennas. We may see a million new small cells and DAS antennas deployed in the next five years".

National Broadband Network (NBN)

Australia's NBN fixed wireless architecture is essentially WiMAX, now rejected as obsolete by most of the world. But our NBN has no planned upgrade path for it. Instead, they are reportedly applying high pressure sales tactics to boost low consumer uptake before arrival of the competitive and faster 5G network.
