The dangers of electromagnetic / microwave radiation.
View this email in your browser

Ladies and Gentlemen,
  It is a case of synchronicity in the same week that Catherine Frompovich has written the article about "A case against microwave science", an article about how three scientists claim that the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is and irrelevant guideline, and an Israeli physicist explains how "5G energy is deposited solely in the skin".
 The are mixed messages at best.
 When taken with the article from Louis Slesin's Microwave News (see below). Why is DARPA concerned with 'Cell-to-Cell' communications. DARPA is the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military. Why is the military looking at how biological cells communicate? It is a curious but quite important issue about why the military needs to know. Is information about how electromagnetic radiation affects whole organisms being withheld and now they're digging deeper? 
 Congratulations to the people in Staffordshire, U.K. who fought for 17 years to have a mast removed from their town.

 Please circulate.

Note: On 10 February 2014, MEP Harkin addressed 1,000 people concerned about the deployment of what is know as the North-South Interconnector, a new system of pylons and power lines, in Ireland. Harkin was running for reelection to the European Parliament. (Her representative asked for photographs of the candidate with those in attendance for publication in local newspapers.) Nothing was heard from her on the issues raised. The Interconnector is going ahead, in spite of similar demonstrations in Wales, and Ms. Harkin initiated no legislation to convey the wishes of those constituents at the European level nor has she liaised with those who are questioning the dangers of electromagnetic radiation.
 

VIDEO: Meir residents win 17-year fight to remove phone mast blamed for cancer deaths

 This towering 82ft high mobile phone mast has finally been removed - after a 17-year battle by residents.
 Shooters Hill Association – a group of neighbours in Meir – has spent thousands of pounds, sent hundreds of letters, visited Westminster and staged peaceful protests to try to get the eyesore dismantled.
 The Orange mast was erected in 1993 and the association was set up in 2000 when residents found out the tower had been erected without proper consultation. 
 Families have always suspected there could be a link between cancer deaths in the area and the phone mast – which could be seen from as far as a mile away.

Streetscape

A rendering shows how driverless cars could lead to a transformation of city streets, in this case, a stretch of Chicago's Martin Luther King Drive. The road's wide stretches of asphalt would be replaced by thin strands of porous paved surface (shown here in white) that would accommodate driverless vehicles. New plazas and greenery would break down the traditional barrier between the sidewalk and the street.
 

Driverless cars could dramatically change urban landscape

The scenes are straight out of a Jules Verne novel or the 1960s cult cartoon "The Jetsons."

Driverless cars streak down the Stevenson Expressway, traveling in platoons for reduced wind resistance, while old-fashioned cars (the kind with people at the wheel) are consigned to a 65 mph slow lane.

Glassy passenger pods float above a Manhattan street, which has been transformed from an anonymous stretch of asphalt into a welcoming swath of trees, grasses and walking paths.

Idle speculation? No.

Even if these visions don't wind up forecasting the future with pinpoint accuracy, they give us a glimpse of something important: Architects and urban designers, including those in Chicago, have started shaping bold new city planning ideas to prepare for the coming era of the self-driving car.

SAR - Specific absorption rate
Is physics building on a foundation of sand?

A case against microwave science

By Catherine J. Frompovich

What’s not making sense is this: IF the microwave industry were to admit what’s been scientifically proven since the 1930s, i.e., non-thermal radiation adverse waves affect human biology (bioelectromagnetics), then their emission regulations for every ‘smart’ gadget invention would have to be revised and corrected to the point where they could not implement safety standards because it would be too costly to implement. Consequently, the industry and its mouthpieces—industrial professional societies, e.g., IEEE, ICNIPR, etc., keep pushing smart gadgets as ‘safe’ they know consumers get addicted to, but do little to protect consumers from non-thermal radiation waves, since they adamantly refuse to acknowledge them, even when 32 percent of microwave industry studies found non-thermal adverse effects.

Three Davids, one Goliath - Scientists collaborate to tell the world why microwave guidelines are inappropriate

Three of the most prominent minds in modern science have joined forces to produce a document that reformulates how electromagnetism affects living organisms and the failure - through intent or ignorance or indifference - of science, governments and big business to protect all living things.

Their findings - three years in the formulation - explain how health and well-being are damaged / destroyed by artificial electromagnetic radiation and that the present standard of measuring radiation - the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) which is based on acute heating effects - is totally inappropriate when considering the effects of modern microwave-based technology in everything from microwave ovens, cell phones, wi-fi and pulsed signals such as Wi-MAX and Tetra.

Correction: 5G wavelengths absorbed deeply by the body: Israel - Wireless and health expert forum: Video excerpts from lectures January 2017

Dear Colleagues:

The statements in orange, below, are false.  Speakers at the event must have been unaware of the full array of simultaneous frequencies intended to be deployed by 5G.

Per my chart here, you will observe that the multiple 5G frequencies, with wavelengths not solely <1/2" but rather anywhere from 3" to 20", are very well and deeply absorbed throughout the human body.  All these wavelengths - plus those for 4G and prior deployments and yet others not cited here, occur simultaneously, setting off yet more harmonics, and affecting with full absorption humans, animals, insects and plants - not merely additively, but rather synergistically. The level of complexity of the MW radiation microenvironment is a most potent factor influencing the nature and intensity of bioeffects.  5G, added to previous and other deployments, involves very extensive complexity not only with the simultaneous wavelengths, but also with various modulation patters and broadband so massive that all prior deployments combined do not rise to the outrageous expanse of 5G bandwidth.

Note also that the shorter 5G wavelengths ensure the death of all remaining pollinators, resulting in the unaffordability and later unavailability of many foods.

With Senate Bills 19 and 88, the array of currently-used and planned, harmful frequencies, wavelengths, and modulations slated to be deployed  in every public and private space, indoors and out, is staggering:

·       5G: 600 MHz = microwaves ~20 inches long

·       4G: 700 MHz = microwaves ~17 inches long

·       3G/4G: 800 MHz = microwaves ~15 inches long

·       3G/4G: 900 MHz = microwaves ~13 inches long

·       3G/4G: 1800 MHz = microwaves ~7 inches long

·       3G/4G: 2100 MHz = microwaves ~6 inches long

·       Wi-Fi: 2400 MHz = microwaves ~5 inches long

·       5G: 3100 MHz to 3550 MHz = microwaves ~3.8 to 3.3 inches long

·       5G: 3550 MHz to 3700 MHz = microwaves ~3.3 to 3.2 inches long

·       5G: 3700 MHz to 4200 MHz = microwaves ~3.2 to 2.8 inches long

·       5G: 4200 to 4900 MHz = microwaves ~2.8 to 2.4 inches long

·       Wi-Fi: 5800 MHz = microwaves ~2.0 inches long

·       5G: 24,250 to 24,450 MHz = microwaves ~0.5 of an inch long

·       5G: 25,050 to 25,250 MHz = microwaves ~0.5 of an inch long

·       5G: 25,250 to 27,500 MHz = microwaves ~0.4 of an inch long

·       5G: 27,500 to 29,500 MHz = microwaves ~0.4 of an inch long

·       5G: 31,800 to 33,400 MHz = microwaves ~0.4 of an inch long

·       5G: 37,000 to 40,000 MHz = microwaves ~0.3 of an inch long

·       5G: 42,000 to 42,500 MHz = microwaves ~0.3 of an inch long

·       5G: 64,000 to 71,000 MHz = microwaves ~0.2 of an inch long

·       5G: 71,000 to 76,000 MHz = microwaves ~0.2 of an inch long

·       5G: 81,000 to 86,000 MHz = microwaves ~0.1 of an inch long

Microwave radiation bioeffects increase synergistically, not merely additively, with a complexity of simultaneous frequency deployments.

Israel - Wireless and Health Expert Forum: Video Excerpts From Lectures January 2017 

All these talks are quite interesting! The ones specifically about 5G start around 30 minutes in. The full talks can be listened to at this link. 

http://ehtrust.org/science/key-scientific-lectures/2017-expert-forum-wireless-radiation-human-health/ 

Of particular interest was the part that explains that 5G energy is deposited solely in the skin. Other organs of our bodies will be affected only indirectly by 5G frequencies. But the problem is, they are planning to classify skin as limbs (sorry I didn't get who the "they" referred to - the presenter had a strong accent!).  According to the talk, the body is divided into 1. head and trunk - the most important and vital parts of us; and 2. limbs - which include legs, arms, ear lobes, and nose...and now also skin. Limbs can supposedly withstand higher intensities of radiation. But 5G frequencies are absorbed fully and solely by the skin, so 5G radiation may prove even more disastrous than expected! 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkJlBr1k7yw

 

From Theodora Scarato, U.S.A.

The speakers were presenting on research of specifically higher frequencies which are to be used in 5 G applications. 5G  will use multiple frequencies and modulations. 

Dr. Ben-Ishai was explaining how skin is being classified as an extremity for these higher frequencies  and therefore will have higher allowed exposures.

Potential risks to human health originating from future sub-mm communication systems

Yuri Feldman, PhD & Paul Ben-Ishai, PhDP

Video of talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuVtGldYXK4

Dr. Ben-Ishai presented research on the possible health impacts of 5G technology within the sub-THz band. Dr. Yuri Feldman’s state of the art laboratory has published research reporting a significant biological response from these higher frequencies. When exposed to sub-THz wavelengths, sweat ducts within the upper skin layer act similarly to a helical antenna, which may lead to preferential layer absorption and possible adverse health effects. The full ramifications of these findings on the the human condition  remain under investigation, however it is obvious that the absorption of electromagnetic energy is governed by the topology for the skin and its organelles - especially the sweat duct. Experimental evidence indicates it is also correlated to physiological stress as manifested by the pulse rate and the systolic blood pressure. Before rolling out 5G technologies utilizing these higher frequencies, these biological responses should be adequately studied and should result in standards that protect the public from the possible adverse human health risks they present.

Ami Smart Meters illegally forced on Pennsylvania consumers; Act 129 states ‘Not Mandatory’

AMI Smart Meters operate on microwaves to send, receive and collect information to and from the meter(s) at customers’ homes. Those messages can occur every 15 seconds, which can allow “dirty electricity” (harmonics or sinusoidal waves) to travel over the copper wires inside the walls of customers’ homes every 15 seconds every hour, every day of every month of every year, as customers cannot turn them off like you can your cell phone, microwave oven, etc.

Geoengineering

From Deborah Tavares, Stopthecrime.net, California

Today's weather has been artificially created

The California drought has been artificially created and severe rain storms have been created - weather warfare is escalating.  The Oroville Dam in northern California is being targeted by various weather and warfare operations.   

Listed below are some Patents Directly Related to Geoengineering (Weather Modification Programs).  This information is posted on www.ToxicSky.org and we suggest you go to the home page at www.StopTheCrime.net to learn about the broader reality that we ALL face.

This is a partial list of the patents and descriptions of the chemicals being dumped upon humans through Chemtrails/Geoengineering.  It’s called Geoengineering because these chemicals literally restructure (reengineer) global weather patterns, the cells of plant, animal, fish, insect and human life. 

We suggest that everyone take necessary precautions to prevent direct storm related damages.  Where ever possible reduce or remove trees near dwellings and thin branches to reduce "sail" - to catch less wind.  Be cautious around creek overflows.  Any other suggestions you would like to contribute please do.  

This is WEATHER WARFARE.  Take action to prevent storm damage and asset stripping with costly repairs and life threatening consequences where ever possible.  

Without a spiritual aspect, nothing makes sense today.  The Devil is in the details. The purpose of his evil existence is to utterly destroy God’s creation.  

The California drought was engineered and now the drought is OVER, some say.  The water shortage (illusion) has been manipulated - we do not have a water shortage!  We have plenty of water.  Water is a renewable resource.  Go to www.PrimaryWater.org to learn the water facts . . .

Forward this out to all you know and be safe!

From Susan Clarke, GUARDS

Dear Colleagues:

Notice below how industry think-tanks acknowledge what I've been trying to get through to everyone for decades:

What happens on the record at the local level is considered the preparation for lawsuits that may rise ultimately to the federal appeals level.  

This is why we, too, must plan carefully the public record in opposition to wireless infrastructures at that all-essential local level!  Our efforts must include ensuring that our local people's assertions are factual, at once true and substantiable, and that they do not our colleagues do not make statements that would inadvertently destroy our efforts. Unfortunately local people always will make disadvantageous statements when not trained by those who know the relevant RFR bioeffects science and/or the relevant law and/or solid strategy.

Below, industry agents say they share: "ideas for getting wireless site applications approved at the local level, and how best to build the record in the local process in case you have to appeal a denial in federal court."  THey are consciou they are building a record.  Be sure your local people are likewise conscious. 

We all need to learn from one another, to welcome each others' ideas and editing. I of course include myself here. 

When we work together, hone and polish each other, we are much stronger at defending Life on Earth.  DAS 4G/5G is truly the last Battle for the Biosystem, and no one should go at it alone. 

CONCLUSION: What is stated and written at the local level very much matters!  Life-on-Earth cannot afford sloppiness at the local or at any other level.  We must exert great CARE at every point.  Every person, every pet, wild animal, bee, butterfly, bird, and plant depends upon how carefully we advocate for his, her or its integrity of life.  When we get up to speak at a public meeting or prepare a written testimony, all those who cannot be present for such record-creating activity are quite literally in our hands. This is no mere matter of risk, the notion that harm may or may not occur, but rather of certainty of harm to all by some decrement, small or large, multiplied by potentially years, decades, even a century, until an EMP or some other major event takes out electric grids. We HOLD ALL OTHER LIVING BEINGS IN OUR ARMS, whether or not we are conscious of their presence. We have a great and often final responsibility to the countless beings who cannot speak for themselves or their families or species, including for those who are suffering terribly now and those who have already died early from wireless infrastructures' radiation.  Therefore, when you prepare to speak or write in this context, let us remember all those living beings who depend upon our presentation well into the future, and let us ask experienced others to comment on and edit our ideas.

 Podcast: A valuable discussion about property values

By Leslie Gallagher Moylan and Daniel P. Reing on January 24th, 2017 Posted in Broadband Deployment, Wireless

Just about half of all American homes have cut the cord and rely only on wireless phones. Clearly, people see value in living near a cell phone tower. So how should you respond when you face opposition claiming that your proposed facility will negatively affect real estate values?

In this episode, we’ll review some strategies for responding to complaints involving real estate values. Is the complaint really just a proxy for concerns about health effects from RF emissions? Is the “expert” report or other evidence offered about real estate values credible? How can you show that your own real estate evidence is credible and more reliable? We’ll address these issues and more – tune in now!

Podcast: If looks could kill … Your wireless siting application

By Daniel P. Reing and Leslie Gallagher Moylan on February 17th, 2017 Posted in Wireless

Many (most?) wireless siting applications that face opposition involve some level of NIMBYism – but you can’t just dismiss the NIMBY naysayers and move on.  In this episode, we identify some of the ways site aesthetics come into play in the application and hearing process and talk about some practical and legal approaches to dealing with the issue.  From spotting and complying with local code requirements that implicate aesthetics to strategies for responding to complaints about aesthetics, you won’t want to miss this episode.

Also, we apologize in advance for Dan’s singing voice …

Podcast: survival of the fittest

By Leslie Gallagher Moylan and Daniel P. Reing on November 22nd, 2016 Posted in Broadband Deployment, Wireless

Like Turkey on Thanksgiving, for some things there is just no adequate substitute.  When you are siting a wireless facility, you want to show that there is no better substitute (or alternative) to your proposal.

We’ve litigated numerous “effective prohibition” cases under the federal Communications Act around the country and, while the specific standards vary from court to court, one of the prongs of any effective prohibition case will require an investigation of alternatives.  In this episode, we discuss some ways to demonstrate that your proposed facility is the best alternative and to get that evidence in the administrative record.  A well-documented record on your investigation of alternatives could boost your chance of approval at the local level or, if you get denied, it could potentially expedite your appeal.

China orders GPS tracking of every car in troubled region

Hundreds of thousands of vehicles affected by edict covering part of Xinjiang following outbreaks of violence – and no petrol for owners who don’t comply

Security officials in China’s violence-stricken north-west have ordered residents to install GPS tracking devices in their vehicles so authorities are able to keep permanent tabs on their movements.

The compulsory measure, which came into force this week and could eventually affect hundreds of thousands of vehicles, is being rolled out in the Bayingolin Mongol Autonomous Prefecture of Xinjiang, a sprawling region that borders Central Asia and sees regular eruptions of deadly violence.

The move comes amid an apparent spike in killing that authorities blame on Islamist extremists and separatists but experts say is also fuelled by ethnic friction between Han Chinese migrants and members of the predominantly Muslim Uighur minority to whom Xinjiang is home.

DARPA to explore Cell-to-Cell communications

Investigating 'Natural Antennas' exchanging messages

The Pentagon wants to know more about how cells use electromagnetic radiation to talk to each other.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, better known as DARPA or ARPA, is embarking on a new program, called RadioBio, to determine whether cells are able to exchange information with EM signals and, if so, what the cells are saying and how they do it.
The new RadioBio project brings back memories of another DARPA effort from 50 years ago: Project Pandora.

Long-term cell phone use increases brain tumor risk

During the second week of February, two meta-analyses that examined the research on the risk of cell phone use and brain tumor risk were published in peer-reviewed journals. Both papers reported a statistically significant relationship between cell phone use of ten or more years and increased brain tumor risk. 

Mobile phone use and risk for intracranial tumors and salivary gland tumors 

- A meta-analysis

Bortkiewicz A, Gadzicka E, Szymczak W. Mobile phone use and risk for intracranial tumors and salivary gland tumors - A meta-analysis. Int J Occup Med Environ Health. 2017 Feb 21;30(1):27-43. doi: 10.13075/ijomeh.1896.00802. Epub 2017 Feb 13. 

Abstract

Results of epidemiological studies on the association between use of mobile phone and brain cancer are ambiguous, as well as the results of 5 meta-analysis studies published to date. Since the last meta-analysis (2009), new case-control studies have been published, which theoretically could affect the conclusions on this relationship. Therefore, we decided to perform a new meta-analysis. We conducted a systematic review of multiple electronic data bases for relevant publications. The inclusion criteria were: original papers, case-control studies, published till the end of March 2014, measures of association (point estimates as odds ratio and confidence interval of the effect measured), data on individual exposure. Twenty four studies (26 846 cases, 50 013 controls) were included into the meta-analysis. A significantly higher risk of an intracranial tumor (all types) was noted for the period of mobile phone use over 10 years (odds ratio (OR) = 1.324, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.028-1.704), and for the ipsilateral location (OR = 1.249, 95% CI: 1.022-1.526). The results support the hypothesis that long-term use of mobile phone increases risk of intracranial tumors, especially in the case of ipsilateral exposure. Further studies are needed to confirm this relationship.

Mobile phone use and risk of brain tumours: a systematic review of association between study quality, source of funding, and research outcomes

Prasad M, Kathuria P, Nair P, Kumar A, Prasad K. Mobile phone use and risk of brain tumours: a systematic review of association between study quality, source of funding, and research outcomes. Neurological Sciences. 2017 Feb 17. doi: 10.1007/s10072-017-2850-8. 

Abstract

Mobile phones emit electromagnetic radiations that are classified as possibly carcinogenic to humans. Evidence for increased risk for brain tumours accumulated in parallel by epidemiologic investigations remains controversial. This paper aims to investigate whether methodological quality of studies and source of funding can explain the variation in results. 

PubMed and Cochrane CENTRAL searches were conducted from 1966 to December 2016, which was supplemented with relevant articles identified in the references. Twenty-two case control studies were included for systematic review. 

Meta-analysis of 14 case-control studies showed practically no increase in risk of brain tumour [OR 1.03 (95% CI 0.92-1.14)]. However, for mobile phone use of 10 years or longer (or 1,640 or more hours in lifetime), the overall result of the meta-analysis showed a significant 1.33 times increase in risk. The summary estimate of government funded as well as phone industry funded studies showed 1.07 times increase in odds which was not significant, while mixed funded studies did not show any increase in risk of brain tumour. Meta-regression analysis indicated that the association was significantly associated with methodological study quality (p < 0.019, 95% CI 0.009-0.09). Relationship between source of funding and log OR for each study was not statistically significant (p < 0.32, 95% CI 0.036-0.010). 

We found evidence linking mobile phone use and risk of brain tumours especially in long-term users (10 or more years). Studies with higher quality showed a trend towards high risk of brain tumour, while lower quality showed a trend towards lower risk/protection.

5G rollout ‘Spy and Fry’

19 February 2017

The 5G small cell deployment and some current initiatives going on by the industry are particularly destructive to public health and need to be opposed.  

Unlike smart meter rollouts – there will be no opt-outs.

I start by explaining the latest problem - the assault on public health, and then go into detail on four areas that would benefit from a note of opposition by whoever you can convince to follow up (FCC proceedings, Senate bills, NHTSA proceeding on wireless in cars and State initiatives).

The Problem

The 5G small cell deployment is not needed for regular cellular service but is being deployed to bring out what they refer to as The Internet of Things which includes “Connected cars”. This rollout will involve deploying millions of antennas and other infrastructure throughout our residential neighborhoods. An industry video on 5G can be found here if you are not familiar. 

http://spectrum.ieee.org/video/telecom/wireless/everything-you-need-to-know-about-5g . 

The FCC approved this 5G rollout in July 2016 despite the National Toxicology Program partial release of their rat study on cell phones linking cell phone technology to brain and heart cancer. In addition, the FCC has not completed their Docket 13-84, Reassessment of Federal Communications Commission Radiofrequency Exposure Limits and Policies - all this while the DOI wrote in 2014 that the FCC standards are 30 years out of date and inapplicable.  This technology and rollout has significant health and privacy ramifications on the public.

Since the FCC approval in July, the wireless industry has been lobbying hard at both the Federal and State levels to remove any roadblocks to this deployment as well as to get funding. The biggest roadblock is local zoning regulations that control siting processes as well as costs. They want this removed and they want unbridled access to the rights of way on our residential streets and properties at little or no cost. My fear is that unless there is a massive public outcry, they will succeed. 

Small cell deployment in residential areas will require a minimum installation every 300-500 feet per industry documents and can include antennas on light posts, utility poles and street signs as well as 65 feet mini cell towers on your front lawn.

Current Wireless Industry Initiatives:

1) FCC Proceeding WTB-16-421 - STREAMLINING DEPLOYMENT OF SMALL CELL INFRASTRUCTURE 

https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/filings?proceedings_name=16-421&q=(proceedings.name:((16-421*))%20OR%20proceedings.description:((16-421*)))&sort=date_disseminated,DESC 

A wireless infrastructure company, Mobilitie, LLC, has petitioned the FCC to get relief on local siting fees. But if you read the ex-parte filings, the entire wireless industry is lobbying for more than relief on fees, but also relief on siting regulations and timing. They want the FCC to preempt local regulations and control.

CTIA  writes - "CTIA encouraged the Commission to adopt the proposals in its recently - released Small Cell Public Notice that would streamline local review of wireless infrastructure applications, clarify actions that prohibit or have the effect  of  prohibiting  wireless  service,  and  ensure  that  compensation  for  use  of  public rights of way is cost -based, fair, and reasonable.”

To date there are only about 130 unique commenters from the public. This is not enough. We need to encourage people to voice their opposition to further preemption of local control and soon as comments close March 8, 2017. 

 

How to Comment:

1. Go to this webpage - 

https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/filings?limit=25&offset=0&proceedings_name=16-421&sort=date_disseminated,DESC 

2. On the left hand side you will see under “Filters” a grey box – Docket 16-421. At the bottom of that grey box you will see in blue “+New Filing/+Express”.  If you wish to submit documents. Click on “+New Filing”. If you wish to just make a short comment, click on +Express.

3. A new window will open for you to place your name, address, etc as well as your comments or files. (Make sure you hit the “enter” key on your keyboard after you fill in each field). Check the box for e-mail confirmation. When you are finished click “Continue to review screen”.

4. Review you comment and then hit “Submit”.

5. Please note that your comment will not post instantaneously, it takes a day or two depending on volume.

 

2) US Congress:

There are two bills pending in DC which promote and provide funding for the Internet of Things and 5G deployment as well as preempt local zoning regulations:

S19 The Mobile Act Now Bill - "To provide opportunities for broadband investment, and for other purposes.” - 
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/19/text?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22S19%22%5D%7D&r=1 

 

S88 The Digit Bill: "To ensure appropriate spectrum planning and interagency coordination to support the Internet of Things.” - 
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/88/text?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22S88%22%5D%7D&r=1  

3) US Department of Transportation:

The US Department of Transportation has a proposed rule out for comment that will MANDATE two way radios and “basic safety messaging" in all new light trucks and cars. These radios transmit 10X a second. If you read their documents you will see that this is step 1.  Down the road they will mandate after market devices for all cars and trucks. And further down the road (about 15-20 years) prohibit human drivers. Comments close for this Docket on April 12, 2017.

See https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=NHTSA-2016-0126 

4) State Initiatives: 

The wireless industry never puts their eggs in one basket so they are lobbying the states to preempt local zoning regulations. A bill has already passed in Ohio (see 
http://www.broadbandlawadvisor.com/2016/12/articles/broadband-deployment/ohio-enacts-small-cell-deployment-measures-limits-local-governments/ )
and note the limits placed on local authority control:

Limits On Local Authority

In new Section 4939.0315, the Bill prohibits 17 specific actions by location governments.  Among other things, under the Bill local governments cannot:

• Prohibit location in residential areas or within a specific distance from a residence;

• Require the applicant to submit information or otherwise consider “need” for the facility, customer demand, or quality of service;

• Evaluate the request based on availability of other potential locations (however the city can propose an alternate location within 50 feet, which must be used if the applicant has authority and there are not technical limits or additional costs);

• Require removal of existing wireless support structures or facilities;

• Require bonds, escrow deposits, or letters of credit, unless also imposed generally on right of way occupants;

• Impose unreasonable requirements regarding appearance;

• Require the use of municipally-owned facilities or property;

• Require the applicant to agree to allow collocation;

• Limit the duration of permits;

• Impose setbacks or fall zone requirements that are different from requirements, if any, imposed on other structures in the public rights of way;

• Impose separation requirements between wireless facilities

I have found bills in my state of Florida as well as Virginia that will preempt local control over the deployment of small cell infrastructure.

FL SB 596 - https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2017/0596/BillText/__/PDF 

FL HB 687 - https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2017/0687/BillText/Filed/PDF

VA SB 1282 - https://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?171+sum+SB1282 

I haven’t checked all states, but if they are not there now, they will be there soon. Everyone needs to check their own states.

Overwhelmed yet? This is an onslaught. And unlike smart meter rollouts – there will be no opt-outs. They need to get these small cells everywhere. Please consider sending something out to your mailing/reader lists to alert the public of these initiatives and encourage them to call/write their local, state and federal representatives, as well as comment on the FCC proceeding 16-421 by March 8th and the Dept of Transportation Docket NHTSA-2016-0126 by April 12, 2017. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or write me.
