SpaceX Rivals Make Claims of Special Treatment to Blast Earth With WiFi and 5G Radiation

By B.N. Frank

Activist Post has been reporting about the growing list of credible sources who continue issuing warnings about satellites and similar devices being sent into space and the stratosphere to blast harmful WiFi and 5G back down at us on Earth.

We’ve reported recently about Elon Musk’s SpaceX satellites: “Elon Musk’s Company Launched 60 Satellites Into Space to Blast 5G at Us. More Planned Despite Telecoms Admitting There’s No Research That Proves 5G is Safe.”

Unfortunately, SpaceX isn’t the only company doing this:

The warnings about this are for a variety of legitimate and scary reasons:

Regardless, competitors are now complaining that SpaceX is being given special treatment in their efforts to blast the planet with this crap:

From Geekwire:

In the wake of last month’s launch of 60 Starlink broadband data satellites, SpaceX says all but three of them are in communication with the company’s network of ground stations, including the satellite operation’s home base in Redmond, Wash.

In an emailed update, SpaceX said Starlink is ready to go into a testing phase that involves streaming videos and playing video games via satellite.


“Now that the majority of the satellites have reached their operational altitude, SpaceX will begin using the constellation to start transmitting broadband signals, testing the latency and capacity by streaming videos and playing some high-bandwidth video games using gateways throughout North America,” SpaceX said.

Those gateways include an installation in Redmond, where SpaceX’s satellite development team is based. According to filings with the Federal Communications Commission, the other gateways are in Hawthorne, Calif., where SpaceX is headquartered; North Bend, Wash.; Conrad, Mont.; Merrillan, Wis.; and Greenville, Pa. There’s also a telemetry and tracking station in Brewster, Wash.


In documents filed earlier this month with the Federal Communications Commission, SpaceX says its “first to operate” status with the FCC means it can “select its frequencies first” if there’s a conflict with other satellite telecommunication networks in low Earth orbit.SpaceX’s claim on that score has set off a flurry of regulatory filings from its rivals in the market for satellite broadband services, including the international OneWeb consortium and Canada’s biggest satellite operator, Telesat.

OneWeb, for example, launched the first six Ku-band satellites for its broadband satellite constellation back in February. Kepler Communications, a Canadian venture that’s focusing on satellite services for the Internet of Things, has launched two Ku-band satellites so far — including one that went up on an Indian rocket last October.

In one of this month’s filings, OneWeb charged that SpaceX was being “irresponsible” by going ahead with a Ku-band system under conditions that would interfere with OneWeb’s previously launched satellites. But SpaceX shrugged off OneWeb’s objections, as well as Kepler’s. It said neither OneWeb nor Kepler qualified for the FCC’s first-choice status because their ground stations weren’t in the U.S.

Telesat, meanwhile, told the FCC that SpaceX seemed to be misreading the rules about getting its first choice for operating frequencies. This week, a lawyer for SpaceX filed a reply, basically seeking to find out what Telesat meant. On Thursday, Telesat’s lawyers basically said, “Stay tuned.”

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect the public by regulating the telecom industry.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that they aren’t doing that at all. Maybe that’s why they seem to be on everybody’s shit list.
