Here comes professor, Fractenna personalities disseminating more 
misinformation. He poisoned the rec.radio.amateur.antenna news group with his 
obnoxious drivel. 
If he stays here you will see soon signing him as Nathan Cohen, Ph.D. (and 
other "personnas"), threats to sue, etc. To get the picture one can search 
archives of the mentioned NG.

Show us the FACTS, one case of RF damage and how the limits and formulas 
relate to it!

Am I criminal now because I run kW from mobile with butt of the antenna 3 
feet from my head (very near field)? I have been doing trips to VE1ZZ, 15 
hours non-stop, operating 160 -10m in the near field, where is the damage? 
You cringe and I will have fun operating and enjoying therapeutic effects of 
RF exposure.

I have not received single case of reported damage by HF RF. Anyone out there 
with some FACTS? No need for "scientifically" calculated "dangers".
