3 SIMPLE STEPS TO REDUCE CELL PHONE RADIATION !!
Add a repeater to your home or place of business
A CELLANTENNA repeater system allows your cell phone to transmit at the lowest possible. In some cases these power levels are 1000x to 10000x less !!!
Add a DOCKING STATION
Placing your cell phone in the docking station allows you to connect WIRELESSLY using Bluetooth technology. By simply plugging the docking station into the wall where your land base phone is connected and affixing your cell phone into the base station allows ease of use for making cell phone and land base calls ALL from the docking station.
Add a Magnetic Mount antenna
By using our adapters connected directly to your cell phone (if there is an external connector) , your power levels reduce drastically.
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:
Not all cell phones are created equal and have internal antenna in various port locations. For instance, the Motorola Razr series has the antenna positioned at the bottom of the cell phone below the battery cover. As such this antenna is more in line with your teeth than your brain. This occurs In the older iPhone and BlackBerry as well , so these phones can be safely used without concern.
Bluetooth Headsets are not as harmless as you think ! They put out 2.5 millwatts at 2.5 GHz. The headsets are being compared to cell phones putting out maximum power at 60 milliwatts up to 250 milliwatts. However, the truth is that most cell phone operated at the 1 millwatt range and lower. That means the Bluetooth headset is emitting higher power than your cell phone, especially if you have a repeater system in your home or if the cell phone is connected to an antenna. As well, the 2.5 GHz range is a more dangerous area since the natural frequency of the watter molecules is in the 2.5 to 2.6 GHz range. Microwave ovens use 2.5-2.6 Ghz as their beam frequency! Using a standard wired headset is an ideal and safe solution!

Recently, the WHO, the World Health Organization, released a statement determining that Cell Phones may be hazardous to your health. They reached this conclusion after they had a conference in which world scientists, doctors etc., examined the data from one study done in Sweden and concluded that despite all of the other years where they could not make a determination, this year they could.
Was this politically motivated, where the WHO, the organization that created the scare of h1n1 virus, SARs, and Mad Cow, actually needed some more limelight to become relevant or is this real possibility, that is, Cell Phones used for long periods of time can cause tumors in the brain?
In looking at the study, several key facts can be derived from it. Some of them are based on their assumptions and some as well that are based on logic.
Where is the antenna located?
A short time ago, cell phones had a small telescopic antenna that you could raise or lower. This migrated to small stub fixed antennas located at the top of the cell phone, and then off to what is now used predominantly which is a “Patch” antenna, a small wafer about 1″ x 1/2 ” in size placed behind the back cover of the phone (not to be confused with the battery cover). These patch antennas work almost as well as the telescopic ones, but inherently are not as efficient. This means that “Not all cell phones are created equal”. That is to say different cell phones produce different power levels.
More importantly there are cell phones that have antennas located behind the ear piece of the cell phone, and others that are located behind the microphone, or mouth piece. There was no distinction made between these two cases. However there should be! Close proximity to the area behind the ear and above, energy transmitted by the cell phone has a higher intensity than that transmitted by the antenna behind the mouth piece. For the signal to travel into the brain area, the signal must pass through the jawbone, the moisture of the mouth, and on to the brain. We have determined with readings from our spectrum analyzer-that the energy of the cell phone measured at 5″ from the antenna had 10 dB or ten times less than that of the energy directly at the ear.
iPhones for example have the antenna located surrounding the cell phone from the right side over the top to the left side. The energy is distributed among a path of approximately 6″. No study was done to determine whether the distribution of the energy over the 6″ was different than coming from a patch antenna 1″ x ” in size. Blackberry and most Androids have the antenna located in the bottom of the phone at the back. Again, the signal would have to travel through the phone and then through the jawbone. Similar with Motorola razors, the flip phones where the antenna is located near the mouth piece.
Certainly not all cell phones are created equal.
Cell Phone Output Power Levels
What was the energy level of the cell phone to start off with? That is an important point. If this was a European study, a cell phone can put out a maximum power of 2 watts. Here in the United States, in order to conserve energy, and “talk time” cell phones are designed to operate at lower levels, close to 1 mill watt in most cases. US cell phones have a maximum energy level of a watt… 25% that of the European maximums. This was not taken into consideration.
What Standard Protocol did they test?
CDMA GSM or iDen? The three standards used in the United States, are infinitely different. CDMA phones normally operate at even lower powers levels than their GSM counterparts. The CDMA equipment used in the US is the UMTS in Europe or WCDMA. GSM operates channelized m and CDMA is spread over a greater area. Iden phones, famous for push to talk operate at much higher levels than the other two systems, because their towers are farther apart forcing the phone to operate at higher levels. Up to 2 watts in some cases!
Did they take into consideration other factors, like total amount of metal in the particular cell iPhone versus plastic? Several Nokia, Samsung and Sanyo phones have very little metal, but put out the same power as the Motorola counterparts. This is all very important in examining the study.
Using Headsets versus holding the phone up against your ear.
Many news organizations report that the use of a Bluetooth headset is advisable compared to directly putting your cell phone up against your ear. They have no basis for this discussion. No test has ever been done on the effects of Bluetooth headsets on brain cancer!
Here is what they are NOT telling you: Bluetooth headsets operate at a frequency of 2.4-2.5 GHz. Your microwave oven operates at a similar frequency. The headset puts out 2.5 mill watts of power, at a distance closer to your brain than the cell phone! Earpieces are inserted into the ear canal making them closer! The 2.5 mill watts of power is 2.5 times higher than the energy from the cell phone at normal conditions. How anyone can recommend switching from a cell phone to a Bluetooth headset is beyond logic..unless of course you sell Bluetooth headsets.
The bars on a cell phone can be a good indicator of whether or not your phone is operating at full output power or at the levels that I describe, which are at 1 milliwatt…minimal power. First, the higher the energy that you receive from the tower, the closer the tower is to you and the less energy the cell phone has to put out to reach the tower. More bars on your phone = lower transmission levels of your phone. The power level of your phone transmitting to the tower is inversely proportional to the received signal from the tower. Da Bars! Can you trust the bars on your phone? 5 Bars is FULL? Only with some phones. We have found Motorola to be truthful with their display of the bars. 3 bars means -75 dBm of downlink signal, and full bars, usually means -60 dB. Each bar on the Motorola phone represents 10 -20 times energy difference. Now, with Samsung, LG etc., they like to ‘juice’ those bars up. That means that 5 bars on their phone could still mean a lower signal coming from the tower and a high signal generated from your phone. In fact the carriers like giving those people that complain about signal levels on their phones the juiced up models…that way they can mislead you into believing you have better signal! If you have 1 or two bars, you can be certain that your cell phone has to power up to full, most of the time. You also notice that the cell phones battery runs out quicker… because it is transmitting at full power!
So what can be done about lowering the energy level of the cell phone in order to minimize the risks, if any, associated with electromagnetic radiation exposure? What you need to do is get better downlink signals from the tower so that your phone does not have to power up as high. There are several ways to do this
1. Use an External Antenna
In some phones, there is a small plug located at the back either top or bottom. Behind this plug is a jack that connects directly to the antenna output of the cell phone. With an adapter connected to a cable plugged into this port, you can add an external antenna that can be placed at least 1 meter (3 feet) away from you. A few things happen as a result. The amount of energy you get from the external antenna at 3 feet is 1000 times less than that of the antenna of the cell phone when placed against your ear. As well, since this antenna is more efficient than the small one at the back of your cell phone, the phone is more efficient in transmitting and receiving the signal and therefore powers down to the lowest levels. In some cases this amounts to 10000 times less energy needed, increased talk time, and better reception AND of course no dropped calls. The antenna can be affixed to most windows (we have suction cup antennas for both car and building). Or alternately, you can simply hold it at a distance or place it beside you. With our extensive list of magnetic mount antennas, placing it outside the car or building results in doubling of the signal levels of the towers, and halving the transmission energy of the cell phone.
2. Install a docking station.
We have an extensive line of docking station products. These products connect to your cell phone either wirelessly or via a cable to the data port. By placing the docking station near a window, possibly in your kitchen and attaching the cell phone to it, your signal level of the cell phone will be higher. More importantly, the cell phone when transmitting will be nowhere near you. That is because these two products connect the cell phone directly to the landline phone in your home. When someone rings your cell number, the house phone rings. You pick it up, (even has caller ID) and you answer just like you would if the phone is up against your ear. As an added bonus, you can dial out! The cell phone does not have to be next to you! It can be ANYWHERE in the house. The added benefit of course is that you can eliminate your landline entirely and use the cell phone only.
3. Adding a CELLANTENNA REPEATER system.
If you have at least 3 bars outside your home and 1-2 bars inside, you are a perfect candidate for a cell phone repeater system. The reason the signal level is lower in your house than outside is because building materials absorb and reflect radio frequency signals. Our repeater system solutions simply bridges this resistance, and takes the signal from outside, amplifies it and transmits it inside. Similarly the signal from your phone gets amplified and sent to the tower. With the easy installation of one of our outdoor antennas, and running of cable to the inside of your building and the simple connection of an amplifier inside to a small indoor antenna. Turn it on and presto! 1 bar becomes 5, and effortlessly the more bars you see on your phone the less signal is being transmitted!
Some may ask, but what about the energy coming from the repeater? Isn’t that a concern? As a result of the outside antenna “spotting” the tower… the amount of energy that is being picked up and amplified is similar to the output power of the cell phone. The difference is that the antenna of the repeater is located three or more feet from your location. That means the signal level from the repeater is 1000 times or more less than that of your cell phone at your ear! No worries here! We have repeaters for ALL SITUATIONS from small homes, offices, warehouse and larger applications for hospitals and hotels . The added benefit of course is not only do you reduce the radiation level of the cell phones, you increase talk time, get less dropped calls, and you are able to use your phone in more places than before.
4. How about the RAD sticker?
There are many products on the market that tell you that they will reduce the energy of the cell phone. Stickers placed at the back of your phone for instance are nothing more than a sham. Any metal placed near the antenna of a cell phone causes the cell phone to get less signal from the tower…and if you have been reading….forces your phone to power up at higher levels!
5. More Text Messaging less Phone Use.
Use text messaging more often. I always wonder in this world of progress, how we ended up back with text messaging. If you recall, the days of the pager, you would dial a phone number for a pager, and a signal would be sent, the pager would beep and the person would call his answering service. That migrated to being able to send the phone number to the pager of the party that wanted to be called, to being able to answer back to another pager by a small keyboard on the pager that you received it or sending a message. This migrated to being able to call someone using a cell phone rather than paging them. This migrated to paging them on a cell phone, then finally text messaging them instead of calling them. We did a full 360 degree circle with technology that was supposed to move us forward?
Having said that, the best you can do, is use the technology sparingly. There is no reason to talk on a cell phone if you have a landline near you. As well, you could do the good old fashion way of waiting until you get home to place a call. What is so urgent? If the WHO( World Health Organizaion) is right, and maybe they are wrong, or maybe next year they will look at the facts, be pressured by the CTIA (organization that represents the carriers) and have their ruling about cell phones overturned. Perhaps even better….they will read my article, ask the people performing the study to study more… and maybe 50 years from now, we will get a different answer…. Cell Phones are healthy! They reduce your stress levels. Less stress = better health. Higher tower signals = lower cell phone transmission power = better health.
If you have any concern whatsoever regarding the use of the cell phone, you can give up using it completely. However, any and all of the solutions described above will certainly decrease the energy levels, reduce the risk of cancer if any, and provide you with decent coverage and less dropped calls.
