Interesting to see this thread spill over from towertalk to here...or
the other way around.
"The logic of erring on the side of caution is probably valid, but my
reasons for not living under power lines has nothing to do with
health -- only with the potential for QRN on the ham bands.
There are more hazardous activities associated with ham radio
than living under power lines -- such as tower climbing and
HV power supplies. John W0UN"
Truth there...but other reasons: a) resale would suck due to
uninformed hysteria. b) If I can FEEL it when I walk under a HV line,
I don't want to live there. By the time we get statistically significant
data, I'd be an old statistic.
