Do you feel ill when you're near computers, cell phones, fluorescent lights, or radio towers? If so, you may have what certain hypocondriacs call "electrical sensitivity". Common symptoms include headaches, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, prickling or burning skin, and memory loss. These People experience symptoms that range from mildly annoying to absolutely debilitating. they think it's real, and much like a placebo, that makes it real. Some of these people even avoid getting dental x-rays.
Because modern telecommunications equipment and services are being designed to emit more and not less RF these "disabled" people are forming coalitions to keep radio, cell towers and wifi out of certain neighborhoods. Last year one of those groups, named the CTF (Cellular Task Force) mobilized in an attempt to make Meddocino California a radio-free zone.
What makes this interesting is that the Telecommunications Act of 1996, prohibits local governments from banning wireless facilities based on the "environmental effects" of the radio frequency emissions. So in 1997 some of these groups got together and sued Uncle Sam. They were of the opinion that this clause violated the 10th amendment. A claim less loony than their medical claims. They lost anyway.
But since they couldn't beat the system, they joined the system. In Mendocino they infiltrated a local zoning board and routinely cancel, obstruct and dismiss cell towers over minor technical issues such as height, and appearance.
In 2002 they attached the local high school radio station 89.3 KAKX. Their assault focused on antenna height again. KAKX has theweakest ERP of all 5 sticks in the city of Mendocino. so why did their attack focus on the hcigh school? Because they had the least ability to fight these scumbag legal manuvers in court.
WIRED had a good article on these cads:Wired
and there is plenty of info out there on electrical sensitivity:
