Apparently, aviation experts have also been issuing catastrophic warnings since 2017.
Plane-Crash Risk Seen Rising on FCC Expansion of 5G Spectrum
A plan to redeploy spectrum for super-fast 5G wireless networks is sparking concern among aviation safety experts that it could result in interference with the electronics on aircraft, potentially leading to crashes.
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is scheduled to begin an auction on Tuesday for airwaves in the so-called C-band frequencies that are used by satellite providers but the agency wants to re-assign for 5G. The agency says the sale is an important step in maintaining U.S. leadership in the next generation of wireless service.
But some fear that assigning the frequencies to ground transmitters near airports that will be used for 5G networks could interfere with electronics used by aircraft as they land.
“I see a very significant safety issue here unless we find a way to mitigate it,” said Terry McVenes, president of RTCA Inc., a Washington-based nonprofit that studies technical issues involving aviation.
The FCC says there’s enough of a buffer between the spectrum used by 5G and the altimeters aboard aircraft for them to safely co-exist. “We continue to have no reason to believe that 5G operations in the C-band will cause harmful interference,” said FCC spokesman Will Wiquist.
But the RTCA, formerly known as the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics, produced a 217-page study laying out potential hazards, including the potential for planes to crash near airports such as Chicago’s O’Hare International.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been a corrupt agency for decades (see 1, 2). During the Trump administration, lawsuits have been filed against them for NOT protecting the public from unsafe levels of radiation as well as 5G on Earth (see 1, 2, 3, 4) and in space.
Doctors and scientists have asked MANY TIMES and again recently that health and environmental risks from radiation from 5G, cell towers and other wireless sources be evaluated by experts with no conflicts of interest (see also 1, 2, 3). The agency won’t even update 24-year-old radiation exposure guidelines. They just keep giving more money to telecom companies.
High speed internet is achievable, safer and more secure with a wired internet connection (see 1, 2) – not 5G or WiFi. Americans have paid to have this already (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Since 2017, doctors and scientists have asked for 5G moratoriums on Earth and in space due to health and environmental risks (see 1, 2). Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after 5G was installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4). In 2019, telecom executives gave congressional testimony that they had NO independent scientific evidence that 5G is safe. Research has already determined that it’s not.
Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums on deployment. The majority of scientists worldwide oppose deployment. Of course exposure risks ARE NOT exclusive to 5G. Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could cause health issues in a significant percentage of the population.
U.S. congress members have expressed safety concerns about 5G as well (see 1, 2). In addition to municipalities filing lawsuits against the FCC, they have passed resolutions to ban 5G until studies prove it’s safe (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. 6) and ordinances to limit and/or control installation. State representatives in Hawaii and Illinois have introduced 5G bills to protect constituents.
Nevertheless, a few months ago, Trump reintroduced his proposal to have a nationalized 5G plan and the Department of Defense (DoD) wants to own and operate it with Google. American legislators and organizations have also voiced opposition to this scenario. Recently, the U.S. Government Accountability Office identified serious challenges with 5G deployment as well.
Freaked out yet? Sign a petition asking Joe and Kamala to stop 5G in the U.S. Maybe they’ll put an end to this nightmare. We can only hope…
