 I too saw that show and question why they did not have RF detector devices 
if they suspect China or Russia was using Hi Pwr RF causing health issues. 
They spoke about the possibilities that the same freq as Microwave ovens 
(2ghz) being used.
If the RF was so intense a simple microwave oven detector would have picked 
up the signal. I happen to have one of these devices used to detect leakage 
from a microwave oven.  When I was a cellular tech we were issued Narda RF 
detector badges. When
the techs were exposed to hi RF fields the Narda would warn us at 50% unsafe 
levels. When I was on a bank building in Springfield MA the alarm would 
always go off if I stayed on the roof near the antennas. The roof top was 
loaded with hi power
pagers and cell antennas. If I stayed for any length I would get a nasty 
headache. The headache would not last when I left the roof top and I was 
told RF exposure did not stay in your body once out of the field. I can not 
think of the technical term for this. Cell companies must do an RF Density 
test at various distances and of course always passed this test. At one time 
early in the cell business we had to shut down the site or a particular face 
when climbers were on the tower. I do not believe this is today's standard 
I have no clue if there are any long term health affects but for sure being 
exposed to high power can give you a headache.
