  • The Trouble With 5G Towers
    Wednesday, June 3, 2020 12:38 PM

    Funny how people never read the signs around these towers or understand what they mean. We just believe all the propaganda from the cell phone tower companies on their television commercials telling us how wonderful 5G is and how many more streaming movies you will be able to download now.

Each tower is supposed to produce “1 Billion dollars in revenue for the cell phone companies” over its physical life, as I was told by a lawyer we consulted from Washington D.C. He told me that we would need $100 million to fight it and we would still probably lose the battle because the FCC, FAA, and the cell phone companies are all backing this lucrative venture.

The television crew is in a huge trailer loaded with equipment. Watching the professionals get a game on the air is more fun to watch than the game itself. It is split-second timing, working with as many as 16 cameras all over the playing field.
