If you don't die from cancer you'll probably die from something else. In the meantime, we can all enjoy better cell phone service! Woot!

Hello All,
Thanks for all the support, this is a great forum.

I ran some really quick numbers (without doing a site survey, it's only possible to guesstimate), also since many areas aren't visible on google earth yet, it's difficult to get an accurate distance measurement.

To give you guys some measure of relative power at 250m (the distance to floral park), each 'sector' would be approximately 12.5mW/sqM, which is roughly equivalent to a smartphone at 2 meters away.

So, you'd see about 1 to 2.5 smartphones' (at 2 meters away) worth at floral park. Note there are three sectors, but one of them is pointing towards the retail area. This of course excludes the one in your pocket as well.

C'mon, Irvinites are like an ostrich with its head in the sand. If you don't see it then its not there. Just look at one of the largest dumps in the country. If you can't see it then it is not there. Sleeping next to a bunch of freeway interchanges is no problem as long rows of trees block the view and buffer the noise. Hide the sign of the jail and call it something like Honor Farm and even change the street name then the problem goes away. This cell tower is a piece of cake compared to the previous examples. Use a fake tree and hide it among real trees.

"I can only imagine at a house warming party what a total embarrassment it would be to tell the guests that there is no tour because there is no more house to show you because you are standing in the only room in the house. "

Interesting read regarding cell towers from the American Cancer Society site:

There's some sort of construction alone Roosevelt, the section between Bay Tree and Visions.   I'm guessing they are finally putting up that cell tower.

Seriously...the risk posed by cell phone towers and power lines are insanely tiny that any attempts to attribute cancer to them would be ridiculous. 

People who live in Denver have a slightly higher risk of cancer because they live at a higher elevation.  If you fly for business, you are more inclined to get cancer.  All those risks are much more than what cell phone towers and power lines pose but still minute in general. 

Cosmic rays are much more likely to contribute to cancer but there is nothing you can do about it, they go through everything.

Anyone familiar with the FF will know how appropriate those counterparts are.

I'd be scared to walk over that sidewalk in the future.

Seriously? That's an unfounded fear, just like Ebola or air travel.

It's not...at all.   Just like the "vaccine fear" was not founded in reality.

The cell tower is up and the crew is still working on it.

They try t make it look like an Eucalyptus tree but it looks more like a pitchfork.  Those apartment folks sure going to have decent cell phone receptions.
