Why are operators allowed to exceed the limit values?
Head of Construction Law at the Schutz-vor-Strahlung Association and President of the 5G-Moratorium Association
It is ultimately the facts and figures that determine whether 5G is really dangerous or not. And is 5G dangerous? I say yes! 5G is dangerous! 5G antennas have a very special feature: they can concentrate their emission energy on a very small area. If I were an antenna, and you were in front of me using 4G with your mobile phone, I would irradiate all the people in front of me. Now switch to 5G mode. So I focus all my transmission energy on you. And so, there is a huge increase in radiation exposure between me as an antenna and you as a user. You can transmit ten times more data, but you will be irradiated accordingly. And what if there was a room between you and me? What if you watch TV with your 5G mobile phone? And you, and you, and you, and you, and you and you too? So one can’t deny the fact that radiation exposure increases dramatically.
We may ask ourselves the question: But will our limit values not then be exceeded? Of course they will. But why are operators allowed to exceed our limit values? Whether or not the limit values are met depends on the transmission power of the antenna. In other words, the radiation power of the antenna. Until now, operators had to specify the maximum in order to ensure that the limit values would always be respected. But since June 1st, adaptive antennas can radiate as strongly as they want and there are no more limits. And by that, I really mean NO limit value! As long as the antennas radiate correctly on average, they are allowed to radiate as much as they wish. This is exactly the same as if we were allowed to drive an average of 120 km/h on the highway from now on. So sometimes we drive at 300 km/h, and sometimes at 20 km/h.
Operators say in unification negotiations: No, no, no, no, we always indicate the maximum values. The average will only arrive in 2020. But what proof of that is there? There are no measuring instruments, no measuring procedures and no instructions for measuring 5G antennas. No one knows if 5G antennas already radiate much more than what is allowed today.
The environmental authorities say: No, no, we can check in the quality assurance system if the antenna transmits as approved. But 5G antennas are not included in the quality assurance system at all. They cannot be controlled in any way.
All this constitutes a circumvention of the precautionary principle. I demand that all cantonal governments and our national government respect our precautionary limits and that all branches in Switzerland comply fully with them.
5G antennas ignore precautionary limits!
With 5G, radiation exposure would increase significantly!
5G antennas cannot be measured or controlled!
5G antennas exceed our limit values!
For the protection of our health, we raise our voice and apply our precautionary principle!
Thank you all for your personal commitment!
