2020-06-01 Shaw’s device likely a range extender

1) In 2002, IARC classsified ELF magnetic fields as possible (2b) human carcinogens based on evidence showing increase risk of childhood leukemia. Now there is research showing a risk of brain tumors.

Health Canada claims there is no evidence of harm, just as they say there is no evidence of harm from exposure to wireless radiation.


“The journal Environmental Research has published a new study entitled “Residential proximity to power lines and risk of brain tumor in the general population which found an increased risk of brain tumors was associated with living near power lines. Power lines are a source of residential exposure to magnetic field electromagnetic radiation (EMF) and repeated research studies for decades have associated magnetic field power-line frequency ELF-EMF from power lines to a type of childhood leukemia…

Kaiser Permanente researchers have published several studies linking pregnant women’s exposure to magnetic field electromagnetic fields to not only increased miscarriage and but also increased ADHD,  obesity and asthma in the woman’s prenatally exposed children…

These countries’ magnetic field EMF limits are 3 or 4 milligauss, the level of milligauss associated with childhood leukemia in repeated published studies. However ICNIRP recommends a residential magnetic field exposure limit of 2,000 milligauss (mG) and an occupational exposure limit of 10,000 mG.”


New Study: Power Lines Linked to Brain Tumors 

Canada has no EMF or ELF guidelines because Health Canada does not recognize the scientific evidence that has resulted in limits in many other countries.

Exposure guidelines for electric and magnetic fields (EMF)

In Canada, there are no guidelines or standards pertaining to acceptable levels of residential exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields (EMF), due in large part to the fact that there is no established correlation between low frequency EMF and chronic health effects. Health Canada’s It’s Your Health fact sheet on Electric and Magnetic Fields from Power Lines and Electrical Appliances states that “Health Canada does not consider that any precautionary measures are needed regarding daily exposures to EMFs at ELF’s. There is no conclusive evidence of any harm caused by exposures at levels found in Canadian homes and schools, including those located just outside the boundaries of power line corridors.””


2) Please read below an accounting of another encounter with Shaw in the middle of the night and info on the device. After reviewing photos, one of our technical members has determined that this new device is most likely a “ranger extender“.


All of this concern would have been unnecessary if Shaw had provided some notice and explanation on bills or, better perhaps, in the newspaper. We all are hyper-sensitive to corporations being less than honest and transparent with us. All we ask is to be kept informed about what is happening, especially in front of or near our homes.

3) Many people have reported health problems after microcells are installed outside their homes. These cells have multiple transmitters and the ones emitting 3G and 4G are known to cause serious effects, thanks to many studies. So, even before the 5G transmitter is activated, these things are dangerous and should not be anywhere close to homes.

4) For your information. But please be cautious with some of the people Josh supports and promotes. One example is Dr. Rashid Buttar https://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2010/04/07/beware-north-carolina-beware-dr-rashid-b

Also, some of the claims made by Josh and Australian lawyer R. Broomhall. According to very credible people in Australia, Mr. Broomhall does not yet have the successful outcomes he claims and is still looking for a client who can afford to move forward with a lawsuit re. assault.

From one of our members:

“looks like it does amplifying of the signal, perhaps also backhauling for systems like small cells

ARRIS Starline 1GHZ line extender

For cable operators looking to ensure maximum backwards compatibility and scalability and protect network investments, ARRIS offers solutions that deliver new services with minimal CAPEX, enhance network efficiency, and increase subscriber satisfaction.

The ARRIS BLE100 Line Extender enables cable operators to increase forward capacity while maintaining current amplifier spacing in their existing 750 and 870 MHz systems. The BLE100 is available as a complete unit for greenfield deployments or as a drop-in RF module for 1 GHz upgrades to legacy STARLINE BLE75 and BLE87 amplifiers.

Note: specifications are subject to change without notice.

Simplify plant upgrades with modular RF design and 1.2 GHz capable housing
Improve amplifier reach with optional GaN technology and increased station tilt
Maintain current amplifier spacing with high output GaAs technology
Expand return path bandwidth with plug-in diplex filter support to 85 MHz
Minimize RF drift over temperature with optional analog or QAM ADU”


From someone living on Salt Spring Island:

“I live on Hilltop in Fulford. Last night (May31) around 3am my wife woke me up to tell me that there was a vehicle going slowly up and down Sunnyside and Hilltop. It looked very suspicious, perhaps a potential burglar. I watched as it came down Hilltop and headed out Morningside. It was dark and I could only make out that it was a camper sized van with something on the back. We called 911 and the police said they would send a car to look into it. After half an hour no car had come, so knowing the van was still somewhere out Morningside/Reginald I got in our car to investigate. I came across the van on the other side of the road, part way down Reginald, with its lights on. It pulled over to let me pass. I turned round at the end, came back and stopped beside the van. I asked the driver what he was doing there and he said, you guessed it, internet maintenance. I asked why in the middle of the night, and he said “because of the COVID thing.” I left it at that, noting the logo on the van, WPT electronics and an Alberta licence plate. The RCMP called us back in the morning, and appeared to know nothing about it, which surprised me. Why wouldn’t WPT (Shaw contractors?) let them know so they could reassure residents who phoned in about suspicious behaviour? It reminded me of the covert smart meter installation here, when a swarm of little white vans came on the early ferry one Saturday to install smart meters; it was, interestingly, the day that most progressive Salt Springers had left the island for the Protect the Coast rally at the legislature.”
