More on the Phone Mast

It was front page news in the B&R this week. After the opposition to the phone mast on Forest Road failed to stop it being built, a parent at Hay School organised someone to come in to the school to take measurements of the strength of the signal from the mast. The results were reassuring - the strength is below the European guidelines (which are stricter than the UK guidelines) and about the same as the signal from the TV and radio mast.
That doesn't mean that it's okay to stop worrying - we're still wandering around in an electro-magnetic soup that just didn't exist a hundred years ago - but it does put it into more perspective.
