NBN TOWER AT MULLUM GOLFCOURSE: BLESSING OR CURSE?

You might remember Kevin Rudd"s promise to provide all homes with fibre optic broadband. You might also have had a letter by snail mail headed "Notification of Proposed NBN Fixed Wireless Base Station at Mullumbibmy (note their spelling) Golf Club ..."

There is an ‘information session" today to answer our questions at the Civic Hall, Mullum from 3 – 6 pm. Note that the erection of the tower at the golf club and 7 other such facilities in the Byron Shire are not subject to approval by Byron Shire Council; State Gov is foisting this upon us.

The original plan was to use fibre optic to the node exchange at the base of the road and from there using the existing copper wire telephone line to each modem at home. Then Telstra which had become (mainly?) private company decided to charge too much for the use of their infrastructure. Now we are being foisted with the cheap option: RADIATION!!! How much more radiation will come from a Broadband tower than a mobile tower?? Why has Byron Shire been singled out for Wireless (ie radiation) Broadband instead of fixed line? 93% of NBN is being delivered by fibre-to-premises technology and yet we have to cop the radiation. Are we being used as guinea pigs?

KEY EXTRACT:-

=============
■ Eileen O"Connor, Merseyside [uk]
Eileen lived 100m from a mobile phone mast for many years in Wishaw. She experienced many symptoms typical of electrosensitivity, but could not work out the cause. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 38 and discovered that a number of her neighbours had similar symptoms and cancers, she became part of a very public campaign to have the mast removed. She is a director for The Radiation Research Trust charity and works with the International EMF Alliance. 'It's heartbreaking to see people who are not getting support at the family,' she says. 'It's awful. It's a double insult, really – not only are you suffering with this terrible condition, but then you've got people who think you're going crazy at the same time.'

If this link doesn"t work Youtube search the title – I got it that way and its a fascinating doco. Bees" magnetic compass and the impact of mobile phone frequencies are discussed in relation to hive colony collapse disorder. How are we being affected?
