The Rainbow Facts
In 1800 William Herschel discovered infrared light, in 1801 Johann Wilhelm Ritter discovered ultraviolet light and in 1887 Heinrich Hertz produced radio waves. All the colours of the rainbow are electromagnetic waves of energy emitted at frequencies between 430 TerraHertz and 770 TerraHertz (Terra = trillion).
5G uses microwaves which are much longer wavelengths than those emitted from ionising radioactive elements present in the rocks of Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor and Exmoor. There are stories of hideous beasts roaming upon the moors, of monsters striking terror into the hearts of lonely travellers, such stories are fictional and nothing to do with naturally occurring gamma ray mutations caused by decaying high energy uranium and plutonium atoms permeating the ancient rocks.
In the 1890s Guglielmo Marconi sold his inventions from factories in Essex, providing split second communications over huge distances, much further than anyone could yodel. Today we use radio waves, short wave beam, radar and high frequency microwave equipment to wirelessly communicate around the globe thanks to Guglielmo and his work in Chelmsford. Nikola Tesla has been credited with the discovery of the electromagnetic spectrum in 1889, so that’s all good.
Listen to the science
In 2019 there is a very high density of radio transceiver devices in all cities and towns in the UK. Most houses, shops, cafes and offices have WiFi basestations powering radio wave emissions which sometimes reach hundreds of feet in all directions. These radio waves are in the high frequency non-ionising spectrum using 2.4GHz and 5GHz radio waves. They use quite a lot of electricity, how much energy can be discovered here but you’ll wish you never asked. They are not harmful to life as far as we know.
- For one residential UK side street a single 5G cellular node could provide faster broadband to every handheld device using less power and less plastic, probably.
- Cables and aerials may no longer be required in our homes, on our roofs and chimneys or decorating our outside walls. Nikola Tesla conceived the method of transferring energy harmlessly through the air but the powerful steel industry preferred using wires, so the legend goes.
In 2019 5G does not yet exist as an official thing in the UK. All the other older Gs (2G, 3G and 4G) have got certificates from the ITU for global standardised methods of electronic communication so that industry can produce covertly cooperatively common devices. Huawei and others have built their own 5G devices for BT owned EE to use for UK networks. Three years of UK government focussed on a referendum result has allowed 5G devices manufactured by China to be installed throughout the UK telecommunications networks. Huawei technology has built-in firewall capabilities to block US network monitoring by default.
The radio frequencies proposed for 5G are in two ranges; from 600MegaHertz to 6GigaHertz and from 24GHz to 86GHz. These are common frequencies in use globally for many years. The first range is already used by mobile phones, WiFi networks, wireless microphones, bluetooth shower radios and cordless telephones. The second range is used to provide police speed radar systems, airport security scanners, weapons guidance systems and sometimes even as an actual weapon – a 3 millimetre wavelength beam of high-powered energy focused at combatants up to a kilometre away can cause a wee burning sensation and subsequent retreat. This 3mm range is also used in radio and satellite astronomy. All of these radio frequencies form part of the electromagnetic spectrum of the universe. Professor Einstein was quite good at all this sort of science.
For over a century we have saturated our ionosphere with high frequency radio waves
5G uses less energy by transmitting shorter distances between physically connected fibre networks, it doesn’t reach outer space, unlike FromeFM.
Is ELECTROMAGNETISM a danger to life?
- We wouldn’t be seen dead or alive without it
We are constantly bombarded by cosmic rays from outer space. Such high frequency electromagnetic radiation can be immediately harmful to life. Fortunately, the Earth’s protective atmospheric layers filter out most of the life-threatening spectrum.
Underneath these outer layers we can still produce dangerous levels of low frequency radiation here on Earth from nuclear explosions. We make even longer wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation for use in scientific research, such as X-Ray machines and ray guns. Using still longer electromagnetic wavelengths we can easily produce harmless ultraviolet and visible light. Lower frequency infrared is used in TV remotes and night-time cameras and by some organisms of our world. Even longer and much less harmful than exposure to sunlight are non-ionising microwaves. We use a magnetron to cause excited molecules to emit microwaves inside a metal box producing a controlled thermal reaction. We also use microwaves for mobile phones, Radar Space Guns, WiFi and Bluetooth. Further down the spectrum are FM, MW and SW radio waves used by commercial and pirate radio stations and the BBC. Scientific evidence has proven that plants benefit from certain AM radio shows. Low and ultra low frequency radio waves were once used for submarine communications over huge distances, slowly travelling around the globe, through mountains and seas, upsetting whales and miners. Infrasound is naturally produced by thunder, oceans, earthquakes and volcanoes, emitted as very low frequency radio waves imperceptible to human senses, circling the planet heard by elephants and goldfish everywhere.
Humans can describe all of the frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum between 0.00000001µHz and greater than 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000∆Hz. Human ears hear or harmonise between 20Hz and 20KHz whereas a ferret responds to a much greater range of 16Hz to 44KHz. How is this measured? Are regular official checks performed? Is it always the same ferret? See chart below.

Will 5G affect my TV signal or my brain?
We don’t really know what will happen. We didn’t really know what would happen when we switched on the first TV transmitter or radio station. There was some concern when everyone in the street got electric and an equal uneasiness was apparent when Pong first came into our homes
5G is a turbo-speed-tuneup for our national telecommunications networks, connecting a million devices in each kilometre square with a hundredfold increase in transmission speeds. The World Health Organization concludes that “current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences from exposure to low level electromagnetic fields“.
When is Frome getting 4G?
2020 LATEST News: Frome goes Independent with new artisan 3G standard
Whittled spoons have always provided locals with full protection from any unlikely harmful effects of concentrated bursts of energy sometimes seen with ley lines. Deputy Mayor Andy has given his full support to the proposed 40% increase in the amount of whittled items and other crafted goods that can be sold in the Frome Hundreds. Creative Makers will volunteer a tax on their profits to provide a network of 5G guilt free unlimited wireless internet for ALL local businesses, individuals, charities, services, from cradle to grave for all.
Some areas of the UK do not have 4G or even 3G. UK telecoms networks still use 1G and 2G throughout the country. 5G connects our devices using less power than traditional WiFi to cabled or cellular geographic network links providing access to sometimes sluggish international networks. 5G in Frome, Somerset could mean the end of rubbish broadband for Tytherington, East & West Woodlands, Frome Selwood, Mells, Lullington and Spring Gardens, and faster 4G between stations.
Nb. ‘5G’ is described as the wireless connection method used by the device to and from the nearest wired basestation
The 5G ‘version’ or method used to create a hyper-fast service in the UK relies on the use of existing 4G and LTE infrastructure to initiate and maintain all data links. A device falsely reporting the use of 5G is not uncommon in the USA and South Korea. No iPhone from 2019 or earlier can use 5G. All major telecoms companies in the UK hold licences to use small chunks of frequencies in ranges from under 1GHz and up to 86GHz.
Why is 5G a good thing?
- Greater (100x) density of user devices per kilometre at higher (10x) baud rates using considerably less energy than existing 4G and WiFi
- Reduced number of 2.4GHz and 5GHz devices per square kilometre, saving resources
- Opportunity for public, private enterprise or community ownership
- Fewer passwords and nearly as fast as the speed of light (conditions apply)
- 5 is a good number
What does military grade even mean? No parts of the electromagnetic spectrum are owned by any military organisation.Vogon Jeltz of the Galactic Hyperspace Planning Council
The next auction of OFCOM licences will take place in 2020. The UK may price itself out of the licence to excite atoms in the air below and above our heads up to the ionosphere. BT and EE already have Huawei 5G equipment in use in some UK cities and temporary installations.
Town councils could own the local license to excite specific non-ionising frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum in the skies above our communities, like FromeFM but with more listeners and less power. Mendip DC could make money from thin air! Who should own the rights to excite the atoms above and about our homes?
