people think that mobile phone masts are inherently bad, That
they are the cause all sorts of maladies from headaches to far
worse. This web site is maintained by an electronics engineer
who wants to inject some sense into the whole subject of
cellular mast placement. We do not work for any phone business
but just want to present the other side to the no-no objectors.
We are certainly not in favour of mobile masts being set up
anywhere, for example not right outside homes nor where they
would compromise the appearance of a building but I am a realist
and want to stress one thing, if there were to be more mobile
masts each could work at the lowest possible power. Each member
of the community would receive less radiation!
Please let me explain. When you use your
mobile it can work at almost any power from the miniscule to
several Watts output. Keeping the power low is to help save
battery power as much as anything else. If the mast that your
phone connects to is nearby then both the mast and the phone
will work at a lower power and given that almost all users hold
their mobile phone up to their ear then their brain will absorb
less energy. If the nearest mast is a long way away - in our
case that's more than 5 miles away - then your phone works at
maximum power and you brain quite simply gets more energy
injected into it. It will measurably warm up! It really and
honestly is that simple, nearby masts means lower power which
means less radiation getting into your brain.
Ah, but you say if the mast is placed near to
my home then I will get more radiation all the time even when I
am not using a phone. The answer to this is the partly explained
above, the more masts the lower the power that the system needs
to operate at. Then there is the dreaded inverse square rule.
Put extremely simply this means that the further you are from a
transmitter the less signal that you will receive - which is
obvious. As soon as you move more than a few metres or so away
from any transmitter the radiation that your body will receive
is so small it is almost immeasurable. You see to make the
mobile phone system work they have to use aerials cut to an
exact length. Your body is not an aerial and most of the
radiation is not absorbed. Much more on this on our other pages.

happy to help those who enjoy using the latest technology.
I will be adding a lot of substantial content
to this site as soon as possible. The plan is to make it
readable by even non technical visitors. If you are interested
in studying both sides of the mobile mast argument please

Continued ill health has so far prevented much extra content but
I am still working on it, thanks!
