Subject: Stop 5G Microwave Radiation in Montgomery County

The Montgomery County Council has proposed ordinance ZTA 19-07 allowing 5G cell towers to be deployed 30 – 60 ft in front of residences on street lights and utility poles every few houses, beaming radiofrequency microwave (RF/MW) radiation 24/7 into your home. Currently, 3G and 4G wireless communication emanates from towers in commercial or industrial areas away from homes, giving you the choice to connect to wifi when you wish. Telecommunications companies continually advertise only positive information about 5G, but never tell you the hazards:

  • Evidence from hundreds of studies, including an NIH Study, show that wireless radiation, even below 5G, causes harmful biological and environmental effects. 5G will be in addition to this current radiation.

  • Symptoms are being experienced by recent 5G tower deployments in other areas: firefighters suffered neurological damage, cancer cluster at elementary school with tower, and injuries in Switzerland.

  • 252 leading scientists, experts in Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF), from 43 nations have signed an Appeal to the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) asking for greater health protection on EMF exposure as of October 2019.

  • 5G has major cyber security problems by providing millions of entry points for hackers into key utilities and infrastructure.

  • 5G is designed to support 3 million wireless devices per square mile, digitizing our entire lives and monitoring behavior 24x7 with massive invasion of privacy.

  • "Small" cell antennas in front of every two to four houses reduce property values according to the Montgomery County Property Tax Appeals Board.

  • The insurance industry will not insure the towers, antennas, poles, wires and devices due to the health risks.

  • As of March 2020, 203,659 signatories from 203 nations and territories have signed an Appeal to the UN, WHO, Council of Europe, and governments of all nations to halt the deployment of 5G wireless networks, including 5G from space satellites.

To: Montgomery County Council

I am writing to request that you vote against ZTA 19-07, which would allow densified 4G and new 5G “small cell" microwave radiation antennas in residential areas of Montgomery County. I oppose deploying untested, ultra-high frequency microwave radiation in Montgomery County.



To: Montgomery County Council

I am writing to request that you publicly oppose and vote against ZTA 19-07, which would allow deployment of intensified 4G and new 5G “small cell” microwave radiation antennas in residential areas of Montgomery County. I support a fiber optic, wired-based “pole to property” solution as the more secure, cheaper, faster technical solution without health risks.

The 4G microwave radiation infrastructure and devices have more than 2,000 scientific and medical studies documenting harm to people, wildlife, and plants. This radiation is especially harmful to children and other medically vulnerable citizens of our county.

The new 5G technology includes ultra-high frequency millimeter microwave radiation, which has higher energy per square meter and greater capacity for harm to people and the environment than 4G. No safety studies have established a level at which this frequency is safe, and 5G includes 4G which we know is dangerous.

The proposed 4G/5G antennas and their networks will have harmful effects in many areas: human health, especially children, climate, the ecosystem in general, privacy invasion, cyber security, and reduced property values. The insurance industry has calculated the medical risks are too high to cover, so the proposed wireless infrastructure of towers, antennas, poles, and supporting equipment in Montgomery County would have no insurance coverage. Other nations and cities are rejecting 5G and “small cell” antennas due to these harmful effects. A recent activation of 5G in Switzerland was reversed as many people became sick immediately.

Alternatives exist with wired networks such as fiber optic, known as “SafeG”. Fiber optic is already in place in many areas. It has no health risks, and the service is documented in locally-owned networks to be much faster, cheaper, more energy efficient, while providing more reliable data integrity and protecting privacy. Wired internet also remains subject to local regulatory control.

Furthermore, the U.S. District Court of Appeals found the Federal Communications Commission was “arbitrary and capricious” in exempting 5G infrastructure from health, environmental, and historic preservation review, and is thereby under judicial order not to proceed with enforcement of their requirement that local jurisdictions pass legislation such as ZTA 19-07. United Keetoowah Band vs FCC, August 9, 2019.

Protection of our safety, health, and environment is the primary purpose of our government and of your representation of us, the electorate. We ask you to table this bill until all medical, scientific, and legal issues are resolved, and the proposed technology, infrastructure, and devices are proven safe for all Montgomery County citizens, our environment, and the core values of our society.
