V • H • P The Three Amigos of Antennas!
Vertical • Horizontal • Power | Scientists For Wired Technology |
If your locality has not regulated all three for wireless antennas, then it has accomplished nothing!
- Vertical Offset (in feet)
- Horizontal Offset (in feet)
- Maximum Effective Radiated Power (in Watts)
Let’s Do Some third-grade math:
- Length (in feet) × Width (in feet) = Area (in square feet)
- Speed (in miles per hour) × Time (in hours) = Distance (in miles)
- Maximum Input Power (in Watts) × Antenna-Gain (a unitless fraction, dBi) = Maximum Effective Radiated Power (in Watts ERP)
Now, let’s use some numbers . . .
- 30 feet × 50 feet = 1,500 square feet
- 30 miles per hour × 5 hours = 150 miles traveled
- 150 Watts × 10/1 dBi = 1,500 Watts ERP (Unbelievably, current plans for CPMRA-WTFs call for 1,500 to 7,500 Watts of ERP as close as 6 to 12 feet from homes! — Read more here.)
- Even better 0.01 Watts × 10/1 dBi = 0.1 Watt ERP (Telecommunications Service requires only 0.1 Watt of ERP for five-bars on a cell phone in a ½-mile radius from the CPMRA-WTF. Problem solved.)
What are the Wireless Cos. planning to do with all of that excess Effective Radiated Powser (many tens of thousands of times too much)? . . . NOTHING GOOD . . . so even your local Planning Commissioners, City Council members or County Board of Supervisors can do third-grade math, can’t they?
Conclusion: Let’s Locally Regulate Maximum Input Power, Using a $5 Fuse That Can Generate Significant Revenue for the Locality
Localities Can Police the Quiet Enjoyment of Streets
Unfettered Effective Radiated Power results in too much ELECTROMAGNETIC NOISE on our streets.
