The really funny thing is that Bluetooth devices
operate at these frequencies.
So if you're worried about radiation from your mobile
phone the obvious solution is to purchase a bluetooth
headset so that you can receive 'low power'
microwave oven frequency transmission straight to your
Seems a little bit crazy to me but I'm sure that someone
else on the list can explain it better.
