2020-04-21 – FCC wants to put 5G antennas on homes

1)  A new paper that provides excellent insight into the problems we face in our current environment. Current building practices should be expanded to include consideration for reducing/eliminating EMR as much as possible.  There are some excellent recommendations for making our environment at work and at home safer.

Building science and radiofrequency radiation: What makes smart and healthy buildings

Today engineers, architects, planners and others are challenged to keep abreast of research and policies that address potential harm from wireless technology. This paper builds on long-standing recommendations to expand the typical scope of building science to consider RFR [3,4]. It briefly describes RFR in the electromagnetic spectrum, use of wireless technology in “smart” buildings, and summarizes peer-reviewed, scientific research regarding biological effects on human and environmental health. Key reasons as to why action should be taken include potential liability risks when technology is not implemented safely. International measures and guidelines for lower RFR exposure are highlighted. Finally, practices are outlined and recommendations made to minimize the impact of RFR on public and environmental health in the design, construction and maintenance of safer, modern buildings.”


2)  This idea was proposed more than a year ago and now, apparently, the FCC in the US wants to make it official that they can put cell transmitters on your neighbour’s home!!! JFK, Jr.’s group has filed in court on the basis that this is unconstitutional.  Wish them good luck because this would set a terrible precedent.

Sign to Join CHD’s Submission to Stop FCC Rule Allowing 5G & Satellites Antennas on Homes

“The FCC is about to expand its ‘Over The Air Reception Devices’ (OTARD) rule (WT 19-71), to allow wireless companies to install 5G and other cell towers and transmitting devices (not only receiving devices as the name suggests) on homes. The wireless companies will be allowed to enter into a contract with your neighbor to install a cell tower on their home, without the need for a permit, without asking for neighbors’ input or permission and without any considerations to a neighbor’s disability, property values or other needs.”


3)  As part of the April 25 Stop 5G Day, a group in Nova Scotia is arranging a webinar. Full details are below in Letters.  I will have something soon re. “our” event that we can all, individually, participate in over the weekend.  Keep watch.



5G, Your Health and the Environment

Do you know about the safety and privacy concerns of 5G (Fifth generation cellular technology)? Do you know why other municipalities and countries have stopped 5G? Come find out how 5G affects you, your family, the environment and our economy.

Please join Sharon Noble of Stop Smart Meters BC, Dan Blair of No 5G, Nova Scotia and me this SaturdayApril 25 – the 5G Global Protest Day – as we discuss the biological and environmental effects of 5G and how we can mobilize across the country to rally for safe technology.

Where & When: On Zoom this Saturday at 11:00 am Pacific time, hosted by Transition, Wolfville, Nova Scotia. This will be a bi-coastal event.

This will be an interactive event. To join us, please register here:


We look forward to sharing with you!
