To The Editor:

Much has been written in recent weeks about the location of cell towers in residential areas of Franklin County.

I have no position, pro or con, regarding the alleged harm about the operation of these towers; however, I would recommend that anyone who has such concerns check out a website provided by the Federal Communications Commission www.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety. This OET Bulletin No 56 is titled “Questions and Answers About Biological Effects and Potential Hazards of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields.”

I also recommend that interested individuals obtain a copy of the new law signed by Gov. Nixon (SB 650) which relates to “Wireless Communications Infrastructure Deployment.”

A careful reading of these documents should provide a better understanding of cell tower technology.
