Well , not wanting to turn this discussion into one about the
safety of high frequency electromagnetic radiation , what bernard is
talking about is the difference between fooling around with your body's
electrical system for a while and the immense damage that 900MHz radiation
at relatively low power outputs can do . I don't think that a mobile
phone can generate even a watt of ouput but waves are small enough in
oscillation period to penetrate cell walls etc. It is never a good idea
to step in front of a microwave link. I don't know anything about the
dead pigeons outside TCD but I understand that a friend of mine who
studied there tried to set up a mw link from his house to the college
I think that someone mentioned this during the RF discussion that we had a
couple of months back....
