The NRPB (National Radiological Protection Board) has issued some interesting words surrounding mobile phone masts and equipment.
In one part of a document seen they said:
Ignition and detonation risk
Large, unearthed conducting structures can act as aerials if they are in the path of RF emissions. A spark may be created if the structure is touched by an earthed person or object. The most acute risk of fire or explosion may occur when, for example, gas, chemical or petrochemical plants are sited near long, medium and short wave broadcast transmitters, military establishments and navigational channels regularly used by merchant and naval vessels.
X-rays may be produced coincidentally in some types of apparatus used in radio transmitters including mercury vapour rectifiers, klystrons and travelling wave tubes. The user should check levels of X-radiation around transmitter equipment in consultation with the manufacturer, and where necessary provide adequate shielding.
The most interesting part is where they claim that if a person touches a mast they could earth it which could produce a spark and ignite the structure.
We have to then further warn parents to make sure kids do not go anywhere near the 5G mast.
In the statement that really is concerning is when they state:
“The most acute risk of fire or explosion may occur when, for example, gas, chemical or petrochemical plants are sited near long, medium and short wave broadcast transmitters”
Soon a high frequency 5G Transmitter is to be installed right opposite the power station on Manchester Road and to the left it is very close to Air Products, it could be nothing happens then again this part of the road has never had a 5G mast before.
Of course the information from NRPB is advisory, we though with the dithering from industry experts ICNIRP (International Commission of Non Ionising Radiation Protection) who could not give an answer to what will happen to the health of the people and animals when 5G is fully rolled out.
Lastly we do not and never have given you any wording to suggest 5G will kill you! we do though expect health issues from long term exposure. for example we did some video footage from the Partington mast and felt static, this was the high frequencies, something that was not a problem from the old 4G mast that was previously installed on Chapel Lane.
