Hi I was wondering if anybody could help with understanding why a person would need a 40ft mast erected for CB radio or radio in general. It’s the 21st century and could the same signals not be received through small dish small Arial etc.
Let me explain. A neighbour has installed a concrete base to have a mast erected and it has sparked concerns that the intended use is not for hobby radio. The mast has not yet been erected and one of the other neighbours has asked this person what the intended use is and he said hobby radio. Fair enough but mobile phone operators have for year been trying to erect a mast in the area.
I am just looking for understanding at the moment as the chap next door to me (Lovely man) it’s the chap next to him again, which is erecting the antenna, is very upset and I would like to explain, alleviate concerns over the mast. I do not want to be dragged into the situation and would rather leave the man two doors down to get on with his hobby.
The talk is that it’s a hobby now and that next year it will be rented out to O2 etc and that it will be my young kids that will suffer in the long run by being radiated to death. I don’t believe this for a minute but just to put that 1% doubt to bed could a personal mask in somebody’s back garden be rented out to mobile phone operator.
Thanks in advance,
