Although courts have held that local jurisdictions do not have to abandon their responsibility to protect neighborhoods in order to accommodate the needs or desires of the wireless industry, a basic understanding of available technology can be helpful in dealing with those providers (not all of them) who will claim that only a 300 foot lattice tower will allow them to deliver their services.

Roy Beavers is a retired naval officer and former utility company executive. He has been trying to inform the public about the hazards of EMF since 1995.

He posts messages from scientists and concerned individuals from all around the world.
The EMR Alliance
A membership organization of those concerned about electromagnetic field radiation. Some information is available on the site, more via subscription to their newsletter.


Some people have become so concerned about cell towers blooming everywhere that they have put up web sites to assist those of you who are opposing one in your neighborhood for the first time.
