Everybody knows engineers have a tough time getting laid.
FTFA, to save $3 a month per set. I think you are right though, he should probably be contacting the city attorney.
Get antennas and cheap converter boxes. Or get a Channel Plus 3025 and only buy one cable box per building and pay $3 a month per box forever.
A home theater system with no Blu-Ray. Might as well buy a PS3.
So you are saying that since the wavelength is bigger than the bees that is has no effect on them?
The wavelength of microwave ovens is about 4.8 inches. Try putting some bees in one and let us know what happens.
GSM and 3G signals should not have any effect of bees. As the waves are too big to have any effect of them. Wavelength of 900Mhz (and 850Mhz) is about 30 cm. It is slightly less at 1800Mhz and 1900Mhz.
In fact, the waves are bigger then bee in size in most cases.
This study needs to repeated few more times before any results can come from it.
GSM waves are bigger than most cellphone antennas, yet they have a pretty significant and measurable effect on them. What's your point?
I'm tired of these types of studies that are done on a narrow population. Michigan is a dying state. The rust belt is moving into irrelevance, and thusly the inhabitants may feel competitive. These college surveys are not necessarilly representative of the nation as a whole.
Why not put it somewhere that isn't nuclear terrorist target #1?
