ALERT – Just in 7/9/18

Open letter to Elon Musk

Planet Earth: Full-coverage 5G mobile radio radiation from orbit?

Dear Mr. Musk,

In Europe, too, we have received the news that you want to shoot thousands of satellites into space, so that 5G mobile radio can be present everywhere in the world (https://www.golem.de/news/spacex-elon-musk -will-11-943-satellite-for-the-internet-1703-126545.html; https://www.engadget.com/2017/06/21/esa-satellite-for-5g-partnership/).

From a purely technological point of view, this is a very good project. But have you also thought about what that means ecologically? Do you know that mobile radio can possibly cause cancer? And that many people suffer from electrosensitivity? Yes that there is evidence that mobile radio even catches animals and plants (https://ehtrust.org/worlds-largest-animal-study-on-cell-tower-radiation-confirms-cancer-link/)?

Please take the time to read up to date: National Toxicology Program. NTP technical report on the toxicology and carcinogenesis studies in B6C3F1 / N mice exposed to whole-body radio frequency radiation at a frequency (1,900 MHz) and modulations (GSM and CDMA) used by cell phones (scheduled peer review, March 26, 2018) : https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/ntp/about_ntp/trpanel/2018/march/tr596peerdraft.pdf

As early as 2014, American mobile communications expert Martin Blank stated in his book “Overpowered”: The conventional classification into ionizing, possibly carcinogenic radiation and non-ionizing (mobile communications) is arbitrary. Also worth reading is Riadh W. Y. Habash: Bioeffects and Therapeutic Applications of Electromagnetic Energy, London / New York 2007 (149ff: Bioeffects and Health Implications of Radiofrequency Radiation). Based on the overall study situation, it was noted in a scientific article in 2014 that even weak radiation is harmful to health (M. Naziroglu / H. Akman: Effects of Cellular Phone and WiFi-Induced Electromagnetic Radiation on Oxidative Stress and Molecular Pathways in Brain, in: I Laher [Hg.]: Systems Biology of Free Radicals and Antioxidants, Berlin / Heidelberg 2014, 2431-2449). Also, the international BioInitiative Working Group has reported increasing evidence of a health risk associated with wireless technology. And read on http://microwavenews.com/news-center/gbms-rising-uk.

Your satellite project is already advanced. But even if a lot of money has been invested, it should be remembered: It should only be a matter of time until the fact of the health damage potential of mobile communications and especially of 5G mobile will not pass. We recommend all the more to let go of the satellite project. And in Europe, we ask you very much to inform other companies that have plans to do so.

It is enormously important to take a serious look at the possible health consequences – and then to reverse them if possible. Mr Musk, you have recently proven in other projects that you are flexible enough to rethink. That’s why we have the courage to write to you. Thank you for your understanding!

Musk fails to reply

Dear friends, colleagues, members and colleagues!

As you’ve probably heard, many people and institutions are warning against building the future 5G Mobiulfunk network. Elon Musk plans to deploy over 10 000 near-Earth satellites to build a globally operating 5G mobile network. More at: https://www.golem.de/news/spacex-elon-musk-will-11-943-satelliten-fuer-das-internet-1703-126545.html. The transmission frequencies will operate in the biologically highly active region between 37.5 and 52.4 GHz.

The AEB therefore sent an “open letter” to Elon Musk on 18 June 2018 to warn of the health consequences. Unfortunately, no answer has been received until today. Below you will find here and as attachment the “Open Letter” to Elon Musk. Other co-signers are welcome!

Love for a healthy life Interested!

Thousands of satellites are to be shot into space for the global network, from where they are to irradiate the earth day and night with pulsed microwave radiation. In addition to the fact that the radiation exposure for all of us, for man and nature will increase sharply and lead us into a health policy and possibly even wanted disaster, I would like to draw attention to the impact on the living things in the seas. Has anyone ever thought of it, such as will the whales and dolphins go when the technically generated signals from the “All” electromagnetically pollute the waters of the oceans, and probably to an enormous extent? Water is an amplifier system for EMF, so to speak. Will they “go crazy” because they can not stand it like the bees? But who cares in our society? After all, it’s only interested in being online all the time and having a good reception … The Blue Planet and everything that lives on it is sacrificed on the altar of the Microwave Mania if the human species does not stop, itself and its own By the way, this characterizes humans as the stupidest species on this planet! Exceptions prove the rule…

The journalist and filmmaker (“Thank you for calling”) Klaus Scheidsteger has summarized in a recent article again what it is about 5G: https://www.raum-und-zeit.com/rz-online/artikel -archiv / raum-zeit-hefte-archiv / allen-jahrgaenge / 2018 / edition-211 / the-new-mobile-standard-5g.html (was published in February 2018, the article can be purchased under the link).

An online article in the very latest Swiss Timesletter is also dedicated to 5G madness:

as well as the Internet of Things, without which we shall not be allowed to live in the future, because ia. the EU requires it:

https://www.zeitenschrift.com/artikel/internet-der-dinge-vernetzt-verstrahlt-und-krank?utm_source=phplist46&utm_medium=email&utm_content=HTML&utm_campaign=Eine+neue+Ausgabe+der+ZeitenSchrift+ist+erschienen%21.

The appeal of the more than 180 scientists and physicians from 36 countries to the EU is still largely unknown: https://www.diagnose-funk.org/publikationen/artikel/detail&newsid=1220 because the Tagesschau has actually forgotten about it to report … I guess the Allgäuer Zeitung did not do it as well as the other daily newspapers … Presumably, the “mirror” has not reported and the other system media probably also not … Of course, they are all so busy on the evil Russians and write the poison gas attacks, because something “unimportant” falls down through …

There is an open letter to a mobile operator, who wants to launch about 10,000 mobile satellites into space. This can be read below. Too bad that he has so few signers … There are still some sought. Please contact the AEB.

AMERICAN INDIANS: FCC stands by decision to raise broadband prices on American Indians | Ars Technica

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2018/07/fcc-stands-by-decision-to-raise-broadband-prices-on-american-indians/

FCC stands by decision to raise broadband prices on American Indians

Enlarge / Kayenta, AZ – 25 July 2016: Poor rural housing estate of Native Americans at the Navajo reservation (Navajo Nation) in the Arizona desert.
Bloomberg | Erik Tham

The Federal Communications Commission is refusing to reverse a decision that will take a broadband subsidy away from many American Indians.

Under Chairman Ajit Pai’s leadership, the FCC voted 3-2 in November 2017 to make it much harder for Tribal residents to obtain a $25-per-month Lifeline subsidy that reduces the cost of Internet or phone service. The changes could take effect as early as October 2018, depending on when they are approved by the US Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Small wireless carriers and Tribal organizations sued the FCC in the United States Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit. They also filed a petition asking the FCC to stay its decision pending the outcome of the appeal.

But the FCC denied the stay petition in a decision released yesterday.

“Petitioners have not shown that they are likely to succeed on the merits of their claims,” the FCC said. “The 2017 Lifeline Order contains a comprehensive explanation of the basis for the Commission’s decision to limit enhanced Tribal support to rural Tribal areas, and to target such support to facilities-based providers.”

$25 subsidy eliminated in urban areas

Lifeline has more than 12 million subscribers, and an annual budget of $2.25 billion, indexed to inflation. Americans with incomes at or near federal poverty guidelines are eligible for Lifeline subsidies, but Pai has led several votes to limit the program’s ability to help poor people buy broadband or phone service. Lifeline is paid for by Americans through fees imposed on phone bills.

The FCC’s November vote eliminated the $25 subsidy entirely for Tribal residents who live in urban areas, claiming that the subsidy isn’t required to make service affordable in urban settings. (All Tribal residents are still eligible for a $9.25 monthly subsidy through Lifeline.)

In rural areas, the FCC vote barred Tribal residents from using the $25 subsidy to buy telecom service from resellers. Most wireless phone users who get Lifeline subsidies buy their plans from resellers rather than from “facilities-based” telecoms that operate their own networks. The FCC vote would thus dramatically limit rural Tribal residents’ options for purchasing subsidized service.

The petition filed by tribes and small carriers explained that large, facilities-based providers have been phasing out Lifeline support, leaving resellers as the best option for consumers.

“[A]pproximately two-thirds of eligible low-income consumers on Tribal lands have chosen non-facilities-based ETCs [eligible telecommunications carriers] as their Lifeline provider, demonstrating the overwhelming success of the model,” the petition to the FCC said. “At the same time, facilities-based wireless carriers have retreated from the Lifeline program across the country, including in many states home to American Indian tribes like [petitioner] Crow Creek [in South Dakota]. In more than a dozen states, AT&T and Verizon relinquished their status as ETCs. AT&T and Verizon continue to apply for and receive permission to relinquish their ETC status in additional states, and stopped applying for ETC status in new states long ago.”

As for the other two major nationwide carriers, T-Mobile has “largely phased out Lifeline service, explaining that Lifeline was not a ‘valuable or sustainable product for [its] base’ of subscribers,” the petition said. “Sprint is the only one that still participates meaningfully as a retail provider in the Lifeline program, but Sprint does not provide Lifeline service on Tribal lands.”

Separately, the FCC is considering a move that would kick resellers out of the Lifeline program nationwide, not just in tribal areas.

FCC made changes illegally, petition says

The petition to stop the Tribal changes was filed by Assist Wireless, Boomerang Wireless, Easy Telephone Services Company, the National Lifeline Association, the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, and the Oceti Sakowin Tribal Utility Authority.

The petitioners argued that the FCC “failed to comply with its Tribal consultation requirements as required by law.” The FCC’s decision to impose the changes without opening another proceeding violated federal notice-and-comment requirements and law requiring federal agencies to deal fairly with American Indian tribes, the petitioners argued.

Besides that, petitioners argued that the new restrictions are illegal in part because the FCC’s “claimed benefits are entirely speculative, contradict the record in this proceeding,” and fail to account for “the relative efficiency of resellers that specialize in serving these difficult markets.”

Pai’s decision also “reflect[s] an unreasonable departure from over a decade of Commission policy finding that requiring [telecoms] to have facilities would undermine the goals of the Lifeline program,” the petitioners wrote.

The FCC denied that it violated the process requirements or that it failed to properly justify its decision. “The Commission clearly articulated its belief that limiting the enhanced Tribal benefit to facilities-based providers would better incentivize those providers to expand their networks in underserved areas,” the commission wrote in its denial of the petition.

Pai hasn’t found much public support in his quest to remove resellers from the Lifeline program. As we’ve previously reported, even broadband industry lobbyists and conservative think tanks have spoken out against restrictions on resellers, saying that it would deprive poor people of broadband choices without achieving Pai’s stated goal of expanding network construction.

The petitioners’ court case against the FCC is ongoing, with final briefs from both sides due by August 27.

5G: Human chain pictures; 5G standard released

Note: There is no government oversight or regulation whatsoever. Private corporations have overtaken the earth.
On Thursday, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project released the long-awaited specifications for 5G, including 5G satellites. This gives the go-ahead for commercial deployment of 5G on Earth and in Space.

Mobile Industry Works Together to Deliver Complete 5G System Standard on Time

3GPP TSG #80 Plenary Meeting has approved the completion of the standalone (SA) Release 15 5G specifications. After the release of the 5G NR specifications for non-standalone (NSA) operation in Dec. 2017, another essential step of standardization of 5G has been successfully completed. Now, the whole industry is taking the final sprint towards 5G commercialization. The completion of SA specifications which complements the NSA specifications, not only gives 5G NR the ability of independent deployment, but also brings a brand new end-to-end network architecture, making 5G a facilitator and an accelerator during the intelligent information and communications technology improvement process of enterprise customers and vertical industries. New business models will be enabled and a new era where everything is interconnected will be opened up for both mobile operators and industrial partners.

 

More than 600 delegates from the world’s major telecom operators, network, terminals and chipset vendors, internet companies and other vertical industry companies have witnessed this historic moment for 5G.

Gore Featuring 5G and Aerospace & Defense Test Solutions at IMS 2018

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (June 11, 2018) — W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) continues to enhance the company’s microwave/RF solutions to operate at higher frequencies while performing reliably over time. Gore will be featuring several 5G and aerospace & defense testing insights and products at IMS 2018, June 12-14, at the Philadelphia Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA, Booth #1537.

5G testing has become increasingly complex, with higher frequency test components above 6 GHz and more ports to address. Multiple functions are integrated into a component and frequent calibration is required. At the same time, tests need to deliver highly accurate measurements for faster throughput, less calibration and downtime, and reduced overall costs. To address these demanding requirements, Gore has introduced GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies, Type 0N – the smallest, lightest, most internally ruggedized assembly on the market today for modular, multi-port, and multi-site test applications.

The need for smaller and lighter assemblies will be crucial, as well as their durability and flexibility.

Chris Cox, Gore product specialist

Gore’s product specialist Chris Cox said, “Test assemblies for 5G applications are important. The need for smaller and lighter assemblies will be crucial, as well as their durability and flexibility. Knowing you can trust them will be even more significant for 5G.”

In the area of defense and aerospace, Gore will be featuring its GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies and their airframe assemblies, GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies, 6 Series. The airframe assemblies are lightweight cable solutions that deliver the lowest insertion loss before and after installation, ensuring reliable performance for the life of an aircraft system. The robust construction reduces total costs by withstanding the challenges of installation, reducing costly production delays, field service frequency, and the need for purchasing replacement assemblies.

The testing of aircraft systems is a critical part. “You can’t trust the performance if you can’t trust the test,” Gore aerospace application engineer Chris Ericksen states.

In addition to the above, Gore will be highlighting the company’s “60 Years of Improving Lives” with a special display featuring Converse shoes with GORE-TEX® Technology, FDA-approved GORE® CARDIOFORM Septal Occluder, and Elixir® Strings for guitars.

Sivers IMA, Uppsala University Developing 5G mmWave RFIC with Integrated Antenna | 2018-05-29 | Microwave Journal

http://www.microwavejournal.com/articles/30419-sivers-ima-uppsala-university-developing-5g-mmwave-rfic-with-integrated-antenna

Sivers IMA, Uppsala University Developing 5G mmWave RFIC with Integrated Antenna – 5/29/2018

For 5G applications, Sivers IMA and Uppsala University will develop a 24 to 29.5 GHz IC with an antenna integrated in the package. Vinnova, Sweden’s government agency for innovation, is funding the project with SEK4 million (approximately $450,000) under the “Smartare Elektroniksystem Forsknings – och innovationsprojekt 2018” program.

The motivation for the integrated RFIC and antenna is the need for a cost-effective front-end for customer premises equipment (CPE) in millimeter wave, Gbps broadband systems. According to Sivers IMA, such a product is not commercially available. The application and opportunity to commercialize the product was assessed by a jury of 14 independent national experts in an evaluation by Smartare Elektroniksystem.

Related Resources

Of the SEK4 million, Sivers IMA will receive SEK3 million for the RFIC and SEK1 million will go to the Institution for Technical Science at Ångströmslaboratoriet at Uppsala University for the antenna.

Vinnova previously funded Sivers IMA and Uppsala University to develop a WiGig (60 GHz) RFIC with antenna, which was presented at the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP). A second paper will be presented at the IEEE RFIC Symposium in June (2018).

Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA, said, “5G will be a key component in all future telecommunication networks, which was confirmed by the prime ministers of the Nordic countries last week, where they agreed to a new, deeper cooperation around 5G development, with the ambition that the Nordic region should be at the forefront. With this contribution from Vinnova, together with our own investment within 5G, we can now contribute to this vision.”

Dragos Dancila, an associate professor of microwave technology at Uppsala University and the project leader for the antenna development, said, “We are grateful that Vinnova supports the long-term collaboration between industry and university, having already resulted in an excellent experience of delivering a successful technology at 60 GHz. We have again the opportunity to embark on the development of a new communication system supporting the 5G bands at 24 to 28 GHz and to ensure that it is competitive and world class.”

The Angstrom laboratory at Uppsala has an advanced antenna chamber for acoustic and RF measurements, which will be used to support the project.

Vinnova’s mission is to contribute to sustainable economic growth in Sweden by “improving the conditions for innovation.” According to the Vinnova website, “We do this mainly by funding innovation projects and the research needed to develop new solutions. We also invest long term in strong research and innovation environments.”

Ooredoo First In The World to Launch 5G Commercial Network | 2018-05-16 | Microwave Journal

http://www.microwavejournal.com/articles/30345-ooredoo-first-in-the-world-to-launch-5g-commercial-network

Ooredoo First In The World to Launch 5G Commercial Network – 5/16/2018

Ooredoo has announced that the company is the first operator in the world to launch a live 5G network on the 3.5 GHz spectrum band.

The breakthrough announcement was made in an event attended by Ooredoo senior management at the Ooredoo Tower in West Bay. Attendees were also briefed on the first Ooredoo 5G site which was accomplished just days after Ooredoo’s new 5G Commercial Core Network was activated.

Related Resources

Ooredoo’s 5G network is the first commercially available 5G network in the world and is an important technological breakthrough for the telecommunications industry worldwide.

Speaking at the event, Waleed Al Sayed, CEO, Ooredoo Qatar, said, “Today, Ooredoo and Qatar make history. We are the first company in the world to offer access to 5G technology and services, and the people of Qatar are the first to have access to the incredible benefits this technological upgrade will bring. We dedicate this important milestone to the people of Qatar and to our beloved leaders, who have encouraged this step in building the knowledge-based economy of Qatar.”

The first stage of Ooredoo’s 5G Supernet deployment will cover an area from The Pearl Qatar to Hamad International Airport, with Lagoona, Katara Cultural Village, West Bay, the Corniche and Souq Waqif also included in the initial commercial launch coverage area.

The Ooredoo 5G service offers the latest network technology (5G NR) meaning much higher speeds, capacity and better latency, than existing cellular systems. The new network will bring advantages over the previous generations of cellular technology and will enable business and consumer customers to unlock more of their potential and explore opportunities that were simply not possible before 5G.

Tektronix, IEMN Demonstrate 100 Gb/s Wireless Transmissions Using New IEEE 802.15.3d Standard | 2018-05-16 | Microwave Journal

http://www.microwavejournal.com/articles/30342-tektronix-iemn-demonstrate-100-gbs-wireless-transmissions-using-new-ieee-802153d-standard

Tektronix, IEMN Demonstrate 100 Gb/s Wireless Transmissions Using New IEEE 802.15.3d Standard

Tektronix, Inc. and IEMN, a major French research laboratory, demonstrated a single carrier wireless link traveling at a 100 Gb/s data rate. This demonstration uses advanced data coding, THz photonics and wideband and linear devices to enable ultra fast wireless connections in the 252 – 325 GHz band per the recently published IEEE 802.15.3d standard.

“Achieving 100 Gb/s transmission in a single carrier helps to fill the gap between the worlds of fiber-optics and radio. By combining the concept with dedicated architectures and photonic-based THz circuits we are paving the way for far faster wireless transmission than what’s possible today,” said Guillaume Ducournau, an associate professor at IEMN/CNRS/University Lille working on THz communication systems.

Related Resources

The purpose of the new 802.15.3d standard is to provide for low complexity, low cost, low power consumption, very high data rate wireless connectivity among devices and in the future ‘low THz’ bands. Potential applications include consumer multimedia, wireless switched point-to-point applications in data centers, wireless backhaul/front haul, intra-device communications and a wide variety of additional use cases such as rapid large multimedia data downloads and file exchanges between two devices in close proximity.

Achieving 100 Gb/s and beyond requires the extension of carrier frequencies to the millimeter/sub-millimeter range, around 300 GHz, also called the “THz band.” Using a combination of optical coherent technologies and THz transceivers, this latest demonstration showcased the advances being made toward operational wireless links with THz frequencies and optical-equivalent data rates.

The demonstration was accomplished within the framework of several research projects including the COM’TONIQ, Era-net Chistera TERALINKS and TERASONIC ANR projects in THz communications. The French Equipex programs, “FLUX” (high-speed guided fiber/wireless-based advanced data coms) and “ExCELSIOR” (advanced characterization of nano-devices and systems) also supported this effort along with IEMN platform facilities and the RENATECH French nanofabrication network, IRCICA USR-3380. The demonstration was also supported by the CPER “Photonics for society” and contributes to the “digital world” Hub 3 of the I-Site Université de Lille Nord de France.

“Tektronix is delighted to be working in such close collaboration with IEMN on achieving this prestigious breakthrough,” said Dr. Klaus Engenhardt, CTO Tektronix EMEA. “It’s exciting to see our industry-leading end-to-end transmit and receive solution used to help bridge coherent optical and THz transceiver technologies. Advanced test tools are needed today to generate and characterize signals at 100G, 400G and beyond and Tektronix offers a wide portfolio of optical communication test solutions.”

Tektronix has a long history of collaboration with IEMN on THz communications research and most recently supported the first data transmission through a THz multiplexer.
