To place a microwave radio antenna in close proximity to any dwelling let alone an elementary school is a bad idea. Basically, you would be microwaving the children. Europe has been studying the effects of both cell phones and the transmitting towers for years and these frequencies are not beneficial for humans. This should be looked at again. Cell towers should be placed as far away from dwellings as possible to assure coverage.

Well Tim, I guess it's a good thing we don't live in Europe eh? Eaurope who uses a totally different system, with different frequencies.

I'm also fairly certain you have NO idea how many transmitters you are exposed to every day with no ill effects.

Does all of the exposure add up over time? The answer is....we don't know. Of all of the places to install the towers, above developing children for six hours/five days a week is just a bad idea.

So homeschool, provide than safe bubble for your kids.
Don't use the microwave(the bad stuff could leak out)
Obviously don't use a cell phone.
No internet(the wireless will get ya)
Better go ahead and close the blinds(since it has been proven that the rays of the sun can cause skin cancer)
Don't turn on the lights though(those bulbs you're using prob contain mercury)

In all seriousness however, the FCC(which is who regulates the transmitters, antenna and such) is a far more involved agency than those that ok your everyday household good.The bottom line is...chill, it's fine, as well as being a sealed deal that nobody posting on here will change.
There are far more dangerous things that you deal with everyday.

we are exposed to natural radiation everyday from space and from the sun. Even the electric power grid exposes us to some radition 24/7. Don't get your nickers in a twist!

Ah sarcasm. I love how that pops out when people can't have a logical conversation. So here we go. The dust at ground zero was "just fine", asbestos was "just fine", Thalidomide during pregnancy "just fine", DDT and Agent Orange "just fine" and all government approved....and by the way "...provide than safe bubble for your kids", what does that mean?

It means you are getting a cell tower.

Nice, a substantial dose of electromagnetic radiation everyday will be great for the students. Many scientists agree that 400 metres is needed for a safe distance for most people. Why take a chance with children?

build a bomb shelter, place wife and kids in it,(tall enough ceiling for your tinfoil hat).
The rest of us will continue to live our lives with better cell service.

Still, insults and sarcasm. There are plenty of places to put these towers other than schools.

hey, county is actually making money, it's a good sign. My in-laws have been leasing a corner of their property for years to a cell company.

If I start rapping my head in tin foil, will that help?
