2021-11-04 5G rollout delayed due to aviation concerns

1) In case you missed Dr.Joel Moskowitz’s Zoom presentation on Nov. 3, a video has been made available. I missed it but I’ve been told it was excellent, with Dr. M speaking for 45 min. followed by Q&A. This should be a very good one to share widely.

Health Effects of Cellphone and Cell Tower Radiation: Implications for 5G

“97% of U.S. adults own a cellphone of some kind. The vast majority, 85%, own a smartphone. This presentation will summarize research on biologic and health effects from exposure to radio frequency radiation emitted by cell phones and cell towers. Learners will also discuss the implications of this research for 5G, the fifth generation of cellular technology.”

2) In response to the FAA’s warning about the potential for 5G signals to endanger airlines, 2 telecoms agreed to delay implementation of their new frequency band for one month. If the grid had gone live, the FAA was planning on taking steps that would have disrupted travel over the holidays. That happens after Jan. 5? Here is the warning that was in the Oct. 30 update [2) – https://stopsmartmetersbc.com/2021-10-30-connected-coast-project-going-live/]:


AT&T, Verizon to delay 5G rollout over FAA’s airplane safety concerns

“Two U.S. telecom companies agreed to delay their planned Dec. 5 rollout of a new 5G frequency band so they can work with the Federal Aviation Administration to address concerns about potential interference with key cockpit safety systems, according to one of the cellular carriers and people familiar with the matter….

The FAA had been planning to issue official mandates as soon as this week that would limit pilots’ use of certain automated cockpit systems such as those that help planes land in poor weather, according to government and industry officials familiar with the planned orders. Those limits would aim to avoid potential interference from wireless towers on the ground transmitting new 5G signals.”


3) One more company in the business of crowding the sky with satellites. The rationale of being able to provide service to under-served areas doesn’t fly (pun intended) any longer with all the thousands of satellites already covering those areas.

FCC approves Boeing’s request to deploy satellites for broadband Internet service

“The Federal Communications Commission has finally approved Boeing’s request to build, deploy and operate a constellation of satellites that’ll be used to provide broadband Internet and communications services to residential, commercial, institutional and governmental customers in the US and elsewhere.

Boeing submitted its application to the FCC way back in March 2017, requesting permission to launch 132 low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites in a circular orbit roughly 656 miles up. Another 15 NGSO satellites would operate at an altitude between 16,997 miles and 26,235 miles above Earth.”
