How far from a phone mast is safe?

Fizzy
I know this is the million dollar question but how far should an ES sufferer live from a phone mast so as
not to suffer health issues? The general guidance for the public is 500 metres. But of course we are far more sensitive.
A house has come up for sale well away from other properties. However half a mile away is a smallish phone mast. The reading outside the property is 0.024 v/m, inside the front window 0.007v/m and then drops to 0.004 or 0.005 around the inside of the property. Having stayed there for a couple of nights I found it almost impossible to sleep, but I do generally anywhere, unless under a Blocsilver canopy. Any thoughts?? Are there any other considerations other than what is generally visible on the Acoustimeter? I realise that extras can be added to a mast by the various phone companies and the strength can be increased. Has anyone had experience with this? Thanks

Seems like there are too many variables to answer that question.  Meter readings are usually more useful.  For example, one could live almost right under a tower, but have low readings because the signals are focused more outwards, not downwards. Or there could be hills, buildings, trees, etc. diminishing the signal.

Thanks I have read of some being able to live directly under a mast.

Just found out there's a housing development of 98 houses planned opposite the cottage. So it's no go
anyway!

Consider also, "stray voltage" or "stray neutral currents", or "stray current"...because utilities run return currents through the earth.

I found this while camping away from NYC to recover from EMF exposure, and I surprised to find this. The more damp the earth, the stronger the effect (insomnia, NLS). I camped in the SW desert mountains and found the same issue.

The official line is that this affects cattle only.

Thanks JWest that is something that never occurred to me. How would you test for these stray currents?

Another likely cause of insomnia is a smartmeter (wireless data transmitting power meter).

These are standard nowadays and they are vicious. I personally interviewed sick, crippled, and dying people over the last 2 years and smartmeter on their bedroom wall is a common scenario.

They also induct their frequencies throughout the house wiring and into powerlines.

The relatively low frequency (usually around 1Ghz) goes through the common silver or aluminum shielding. Copper is much better.

The unusual frequency is not easily measured and they blast out intermittently, making them also not easily measurable.

Usually utility companies are by law required to (upon request and a fee) replace such meters with non-transmitting devices.

Magdas and Hans Karow write about earth stray voltage (stray current) and how to measure with stakes connected to a voltmeter. You can do symptoms test; sleep in attic, then sleep on floor. I find a big difference.

I would check for smartmeter first.  They run even if there is no utility account.

es-forum has a brief discussion here on ground currents:
