Does RF in the Cockpit Disorient Combat Pilots?DARPA Wants To Know
Spatial disorientation among U.S. Air Force pilots has been linked to 72 severe accidents between 1993 and 2013, resulting in 101 deaths and the loss of 65 aircraft. Now DARPA, the defense department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency, wants to know whether RF radiation in the cockpit of combat aircraft may be at least partly to blame.

5G base stations use up to three-and-a-half times more energy than 4G infrastructure

Excerpts:5G base stations use up to three-and-a-half times more energy than 4G infrastructureExcerpt When people talk about 5G, they’re often talking about the enormous boost in speed you’ll get from using the new mobile network technology. What many people don’t realise, though, is that it’s also expending a lot more energy for Chinese telecom companies. At the beginning of August, a China Unicom branch announced that it would put some of its ZTE 5G base stations to sleep between 9pm and 9am to reduce electricity costs in the city of Luoyang. A recent white paper from telecom equipment maker Huawei illustrates the problem: 5G base stations use up to three-and-a-half times more energy than 4G infrastructure. Part of the problem is that this new generation of mobile connectivity requires more densely placed base stations. So as China has been rapidly rolling out new 5G base stations, reaching 410,000 nationwide in June, some cities are putting the ones they have to sleep to save energy because there aren’t enough users yet….SNIP

Cities Lose the Legal Battle Against FCC 5G Policies

Cities Lose the Legal Battle Against FCC 5G Policies

A battle between dozens of city governments and some of the world’s largest wireless carriers over the future of 5G infrastructure appears to have ended with a decisive victory for the telecom companies.

BY  AUGUST 14, 2020


This week, a federal appeals court in San Francisco upheld a 2018 decision made by the Federal Communications Commission that prohibited local governments from imposing excessive regulations on wireless carriers seeking to deploy 5G. The decision capped local fees for the installation of “small cell” towers, hoping to spur the rollout of the next-generation wireless networks.

Dozens of cities and municipalities sued the FCC over the ruling in 2018 — most prominently Portland, Ore., though cities as far flung as San Francisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, and Kirkland, Texas, added their names to the complaint against the federal agency.

Though 5G promises accelerated Internet speeds and other innovations, many communities have bristled at the rollout of 5G because of the quantity of “small cell” signal transmitters that would need to be attached to public telephone poles throughout each community.

Unlike traditional networks, 5G relies on short-range wireless transmission systems, requiring the installation of myriad “small cell” towers. Indeed, the FCC has projected that for 5G to truly blossom it will require the installation of some 800,000 small cells throughout the U.S. in the coming years.

Effects of pulse-modulated radiofrequency magnetic field (RF-EMF) exposure on apoptosis, autophagy, oxidative stress and electron chain transport function in human neuroblastoma and murine microglial cells

Effects of pulse-modulated radiofrequency magnetic field (RF-EMF) exposure on apoptosis, autophagy, oxidative stress and electron chain transport function in human neuroblastoma and murine microglial cells


RF-EMF exposure (935 MHz, 4 W/kg) caused apoptosis in SH-SY5Y and microglial cells.

The time-dependent increase in autophagy markers is related to the cell type.

A transient increase in oxidative stress was seen at SAR levels above the standards.


The use of body-worn wireless devices with different communication protocols and rapidly changing exposure scenarios is still multiplying and the need to identify possible health effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) exposure with extremely low-frequency (ELF) modulation envelops. In this study, effects of ELF-modulated 935 MHz RF-EMF on apoptosis, autophagy, oxidative stress and electron exchange in N9 microglial and SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells were investigated.

Cells were exposed at 4 W/kg or sham-exposed for 2 and 24 h. RF-EMF exposure of both cell types did not alter apoptosis, the number of living cells nor the apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF), irrespective of the exposure duration. RF-EMF exposure for 24, but not for 2 h, increased protein levels of the autophagy marker ATG5, whereas LC3B-I and II and pERK were not altered in both cell types and exposure times investigated. A transient increase in glutathione (GSH), but not hydrogen peroxide and cytochrome c oxidase was found only in SH-SY5Y cells, indicating that short-time RF-EMF at SAR levels accepted by today’s safety guidelines might cause autophagy and oxidative stress with the effect being dependent on cell type and exposure duration.

Further studies are needed to evaluate possible underlying mechanisms involved in pulse-modulated RF-EMF exposure.

Wi-Fi is becoming more like cellular, giving 5G a run for its money

Wi-Fi is becoming more like cellular, giving 5G a run for its money

mission critical communications

Wi-Fi 6 and 5G share a number of features

5G, the latest generation of cellular technology, boasts potential speeds of up to 10 Gbps, a 100x increase over 4G LTE, significantly lower signal latency, as well as increased network capacity and bandwidth. These benefits, when combined, position 5G to go where no cellular technology has gone before: large venues, factory floors and any other space congested with mobile and IoT devices all trying to connect at once.

However, just as it was beginning to feel like it was 5G, 5G, 5G day and night, Wi-Fi technology got its own facelift with the introduction of Wi-Fi 6 in 2019, which hosts a number of shiny new features, thus, again reigniting the fight for the title of the best option for large-scale connectivity.

With recent updates, Wi-Fi has managed to remain in the spotlight even in a world buzzing with the excitement of 5G. When 802.11ac, or Wi-Fi 5 was released in 2014, it was the newest, fasted and most reliable version of Wi-Fi. However, 802.11ax, or Wi-Fi 6, was certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance last year, and offers a ton of new features.

And a number of those features are also present in 5G.

“In general, Wi-Fi is becoming more cellular-like,” LitePoint’s Director of Product Marketing Adam Smith explained. “There are features that have been added to Wi-Fi that just flat out didn’t exist and were traditionally more cellular features. It’s changing the way Wi-Fi is being used, tested and validated.”

More specifically, just like 5G, Wi-Fi 6 has an improved version of Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) that lets devices respond to the wireless access point at the same time that involves multiple antennas, allowing the access point talk to multiple devices at once. With Wi-Fi 5, the access point could talk to devices at the same time, but those devices couldn’t respond at the same time.

Both technologies also make use of the channel access method Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), which allows for the division of a wireless channel into a large number of sub-channels, with each one carrying data intended for a different device.

Another shared feature, 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation mode (1024-QAM), enables throughput increases for Wi-Fi 6 by as much as 25% over Wi-Fi 5. In the case of 5G, this feature was part of 3GPP Release 15, and it allows 5G to achieve higher peak data rates and spectral efficiency in favorable scenarios.

Lastly, both technologies use beamforming for improved signal power, which results in significantly higher rates at a given range.

Even further, while cellular has always been superior when it comes to mobility, the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) has been hard at work developing Wi-Fi OpenRoaming, a roaming federation service that enables an automatic and secure Wi-Fi experience globally and creates an open connectivity framework for all organizations in the wireless ecosystem, making it more seamless for a user to transition from one Wi-Fi hotspot to another throughout a city.

According the WBA website, there are three key elements of OpenRoaming:

  • Cloud federation: creates a federation of networks and identity providers to enable automatic roaming and user onboarding on Wi-Fi. Based on WBA’s Wireless Roaming Intermediary eXchange (WRIX) standards to scale and facilitate different business models under a harmonized framework.
  • Cyber Security: enables simple, secure and scalable Wi-Fi connections amongst different organizations that are part of WBA OpenRoaming. Allowing automatic and secure roaming between millions of networks, nationally and globally with secured interconnection and encrypted communications.
  • Network automation: defines an automated roaming consortium codes framework (RCOI) to support policy provision on devices and networks. Organizations that manage a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint-enabled network may become part of the WBA OpenRoaming federation.

With Wi-Fi and 5G advancing somewhat parallel to each other, many large venues are left wondering which technology will best serve the needs of their business and customers. While there is a lot to consider when making connectivity choices moving forward, one thing is clear: Wi-Fi and 5G will absolutely coexist and to get the most out of these two technologies, it is imperative to allow them to complement each other.

Swiss Re SONAR New emerging risk insights
White Paper: 5G rated as a “high impact” emerging risk
May 2019
5G is rated as a “high impact” emerging risk affecting property and casualty claims in more than 3 years.
“As the biological effects of EMF in general and 5G in particular are still being debated, potential claims for health impairments may come with a long latency.”
The text on page 29 of 2019 Swiss Re Report is as follows.
“Off the leash – 5G mobile networks”
“5G – short for fifth generation – is the latest standard for cellular mobile communications. Providing ultrafast broadband connection with higher capacity and lower latency, 5G is not only heaven for your smartphone. It will enable wireless connectivity in real time for any device of the Internet of things (IoT), whether that be autonomous cars or sensor-steered factory. In doing so, it will allow decentralised seamless interconnectivity between devices.
To allow for a functional network coverage and increased capacity overall, more antennas will be needed, including acceptance of higher levels of electromagnetic radiation. In some jurisdictions, the rise of threshold values will require legal adaptation. Existing concerns regarding potential negative health effects from electromagnetic fields (EMF) are only likely to increase. An uptick in liability claims could be a potential long-term consequence.
Other concerns are focused on cyber exposures, which increase with the wider scope of 5G wireless attack surfaces. Traditionally IoT devices have poor security features. Moreover, hackers can also exploit 5G speed and volume, meaning that more data can be stolen much quicker. A large-scale breakthrough of autonomous cars and other IoT applications will mean that security features need to be enhanced at the same pace. Without, interruption and subversion of the 5G platform could trigger catastrophic, cumulative damage. …
Potential impacts:
Cyber exposures are significantly increased with 5G, as attacks become faster and higher in volume. This increases the challenge of defence.
Growing concerns of the health implications of 5G may lead to political friction and delay of implementation, and to liability claims. The introductions of 3G and 4G faced similar challenges.
Information security and national sovereignty concerns might delay implementation of 5G further, increasing uncertainty for planning authorities, investors, tech companies and insurers.
Heated international dispute over 5G contractors and potential for espionage or sabotage could affect international cooperation, and impact financial markets negatively.
As the biological effects of EMF in general and 5G in particular are still being debated, potential claims for health impairments may come with a long latency.”

Cell Tower: Out of One Neighborhood, Into Another
Blog post that hopefully clears up the confusion about the need for 5G to “bridge the digital divide”…Blog also underscores the need for digital literacy as a public right/necessity.
BRIDGING THE DIGITAL DIVIDE – What Could Be Wrong with That?
Access to the internet is now considered a public necessity, similar to water and electricity. People lacking affordable and reliable internet access are at a disadvantage in navigating today’s world, especially in these times of social isolation.
The telecom industry is intent on “bridging the digital divide” to end this inequity.  Sounds good at first blush, but unfortunately, the lowest cost internet option – one that is neither safe, environmentally friendly, nor respectful of privacy – is the one being offered. Will this fix the problem or are we rather substituting one disadvantage for another?
Not All Technology Is Created Equal
Internet can be accessed through wired connections such as fiber optics or coaxial cable, or wirelessly via cell towers, 4G/5G antennas and wireless “hot spots” next to homes, and/or via satellites. Wired connections are safer, faster, more cyber secure, energy efficient and reliable than wireless connections. Wireless, however, has one advantage over wired – mobility. You can access the internet wirelessly when out and about, something that cannot be done with a wired connection.
In its haste to “bridge the digital divide” the telecom industry is peddling 4G/5G antennas and wireless hot spots to under-served communities. Most people are unaware there are better ways to connect to the internet from one’s home or business and are oblivious to the harms and risks of these close proximity wireless antennas and hot spots. Thrilled to get online at all, these communities willingly accept telecoms offerings.
The industry is most pleased as their 4G soon to be 5G-wonder child, and its attendant and lucrative promises of data-harvesting, artificial intelligence, surveillance capitalism, “software as a service” all gain another captured market. And an added perk is that industry appears to be fixing a gross injustice. Seemingly, a win/win for all.
So, What Could Be the Problem?
Like many of us, these communities are unaware of the thousands of studies showing both long and short-term health effects from existing 2G, 3G, and 4G technologies, and the dozens of studies showing harm specifically from the millimeter wave frequencies to be used in 5G and the modulations carried along these frequencies. Not to mention the, as yet unstudied other virtuoso technological feats that will likely find their way into the 5G build out.
Similar to the playbook used by tobacco, asbestos, Teflon, and other toxins, the telecom industry has neglected to disclose risks from 5G. Instead, it unabashedly asserts 5G’s safety while providing not a single study to substantiate this claim that runs counter to the consensus of science on wireless health effects.
Internet access may indeed be a public necessity but so is our health. The challenge before us is not simply how to bridge the digital divide, but how to bridge it while preserving our health and that of all other living beings — not to mention our personal privacy, sovereignty and dignity.
Need for Digital Literacy is a Public Necessity
It follows that if internet is a public necessity, an understanding of the pros and cons of different ways of connecting to the internet, aka digital literacy, would also be essential. For without an understanding, people cannot defend their rights, and risk becoming victims of an inequitable system. Without digital literacy, we are seemingly locked into a binary choice: “Do we want 5G or no internet access?” when in truth, there is another option – safe wired internet.
Industry has a moral obligation to not only disclose the risks and benefits of the technologies the public is being offered and exposed to, but to advise people on the safest technology option for any given situation.
Governments have a duty to educate the public, starting with school aged children, on how to connect to the internet in the safest way possible. We all deserve the right to fully informed consumer choices to best protect ourselves, our families, communities, and our collective future on this planet.
Social Injustice in Internet Access
Environmental pollutants have a long and well-documented history of impacting communities of lesser means. In the case of 5G, there is no evidence to date that lower income communities are preferentially being targeted for 5G and that safer wired connections are being withheld.
However, defending against 5G takes lots of money, time, effort and resources, all of which communities of means have access to if they get organized in time and choose to push back against industry’s agenda.
Communities of lesser means cannot afford the luxury of fighting the system. Either they must accept a cell tower antenna outside their bedroom window or no internet connectivity at all — a grim choice indeed.

Recently there is a growing concern regarding potential health hazards linked with 5G deployment and radio frequency emitted by these stations. It becomes fundamentally important to scientifically address these concerns. In this paper, the health risks incorporated with 5G are discussed critically in the light of scientific work and debunk these tittle-tattles where required. We confute scientifically the “5G appeal”, discuss effects of 5G on health, its implications on privacy, pandemics, ecosystem and role of world health organization in fighting these narratives. Finally, we provide future direction to negate these false claims linked with 5G.

5G Induces Coronaviruses: New Study Models Millimeter Wave Influence on DNA

5G Induces Coronaviruses: New Study Models Millimeter Wave Influence on DNA

Published 4 weeks ago on 


  • THE STORY:A new study published at the NIH PubMed site on July 16th 2020, and published earlier elsewhere in June 2020, mathematically models how the millimeter waves of 5G tech could induce the body to create coronaviruses like SARS-CoV-2 / COVID.
  • THE IMPLICATIONS:Why have authorities desperately tried to silence those pointing out the 5G-coronavirus connection? Why are we worried about supposedly contagious surfaces when battlefield technology is being rolled out worldwide that can penetrate and manipulate our very DNA?

5G induces coronaviruses

This echoes what I wrote in the 2017 article 5G and IoT: Total Technological Control Grid Being Rolled Out Fast where I referenced the research of Israeli scientist Dr. Ben-Ishai, who showed that our sweat ducts work like helical antennas, absorbing energy and EM frequencies between 75-100 GHz, part of the range used by 5G.

5G Induces Coronaviruses – Further Implications

So what are the implications of this study? There are many. Firstly, if 5G can be weaponized and aimed at people, firing EMF and manipulating their DNA to produce coronaviruses, then the external threat is not some new killer virus, but rather destructive battlefield technology disguised as telecommunications technology. Anyone still looking at airborne particles and worried about contaminated surfaces is missing the point completely. Secondly, building upon the first point, if the NWO (New World Order) controllers running this agenda have the power to induce people to make coronaviruses, or even a specific strain like SARS-CoV-2 (assuming it exists), then there is no ‘contagion’ or viral spread as such. Some such as Dr. Stefan Lanka believe contagion itself is a myth. Either way, there is no medical or legal justification for shutting down small businesses, quarantining and isolating people, forced mask wearing and social distancing, because in this scenario some new virus is not being spread; people are being induced to create it inside their own bodies. Thirdly, it adds more weight to the idea that 5G mimics electroporation, the microbiology technique which uses an electrical pulse to create temporary pores in cell membranes through which substances like chemicals, drugs or DNA can be introduced into the cell. Both electroporation and 5G use pulsed waves to open up the cell, thus allowing the DNA inside to be altered.

Final Thoughts

This research is another crucial piece of the puzzle. We have known for awhile now that artificial EMF is causing great harm to us. We have also known for awhile that 5G is extremely dangerous in many ways, including hijacking our sweat duct antennae, bombarding us with pulsed waves (more damaging than continuous wave radiation), amplifying DNA damage via VGCCs, promoting deep EMF penetration and having mutagenic and carcinogenic effects, being emitted from a phased array structure that has been used for crowd dispersal. This research is more evidence that we are being deliberately poisoned, and that tales of species-jumping bat viruses from China are a red herring. We must continue to be vigilant in opposing 5G in all its forms, and doing what we can in our local area to prevent the 5G rollout. Our DNA depends on it. However, we must also be aware that space-based 5G satellites have been deployed earlier this year by SpaceX (run by Elon Musk), and other companies including Amazon, OneWeb and TeleSat have either done so as well or are about to. Time is running low for humanity to wake up.
