As well as
sensitive humans, all domestic pets, other animals and birds
sharing our EMR polluted environment
may have a story to tell.
Any reports in this regard
from readers would be welcome.
report of Professor Dr. P.Semm and
R Beason, avian brain study.
‘Response of neurons to amplitude modulated microwave RF. ‘contains a
comment of particular interest: “
Although individual neurons in the zebra finch brain responded to the pulsed RF
stimulus, we do not know whether these responses by the nervous system are
manifested in the bird's behavior or its health. ”
similar neuronal responses occur in mammals, including humans, requires further
investigation. Borbély and coworkers  reported that exposure to a RF signal
similar to the one we used influenced sleep and sleep electroencephalogram in
humans. Their results and the responses we recorded clearly indicate the
potential for effects on the human nervous system.” >  Borbély, A. A., Huber,

immediately calls to mind a case
here in Sydney, NSW, Australia, where
a large number of caged exotic birds
the veterinary science could
not explain. Most birds refused to breed, the few that did ejected
the young from the nest, prematurely. Of two that survived only one was
relatively normal, the other had no feathers. Some breeds became aggressive,
attacking mates. Canaries were disinclined to sing and their song
was limited in range. Most
birds molted excessively – recognized as a sure sign of stress.
Two pet dogs at the same address refused to
sleep in their usual place.
Our attention was drawn to this
case due to the particular location, a suburban
residence, 200 metres
a large 50Hertz electricity
substation, where an analogue
mobile phone transmitting antenna was operating from the same site.
The birds had obviously
tolerated this EMR environment with
impunity until the dramatic change occurred in their
health and behaviour -
about three months after the
upgrading of the mobile phone transmitter from analogue to the digital signal.
Two pet dogs at the same address also
refused to sleep in their usual

In another Sydney suburb,
soon after a digital mobile
phone base station (MBS) was
installed on a high rise apartment building where a flock of
black crows normally
roosted, local residents noticed
that the birds became unusually
restless and noisy, suddenly
vacating the area. Recent health abnormalities were increasingly noted
among local residents who were
concerned that the MBS emissions
The birds in our ‘real life ‘report,
by their bizarre behaviour, communicated
eloquently that a recent environmental
change was a major health hazard to
their kind. These are
not the only cases where uncharacteristic
bird behaviour has been reasonably linked with RFR.
our view the avian brain study is indeed pertinent to the first case
of birds, set up to emulate
the real life environment of the
caged birds we encountered, might
well give meaningful results as to the behaviour and health outcome of birds
subjected to environmental RF radiation in
the real world.
research on functioning biological
systems other than human should
be followed by health studies of
the human populations at risk,
in the same RFR

Bruce Hocking (Australia) and Professor Santini (France)
are two such that should
be used to influence
authorities to establish further serious investigation of the health status of
people in these high risk environments.

caged birds cannot, nor can the unborn and the very young human child.
It is our responsibility to provide a safe environment
for those dependant on our care.
IN NEW ZEALAND DAMAGED
At a bird sanctuary
approximately 40 kilometres from Christchurch birds were found to be dying in
certain areas of the property Penny Hargreaves (Ouruhia, NZ ) visited the property and
was surprised to find strong radiofrequency
radiation (RFR) near a
wire fence where the birds were
found dead and a hedge was dying.
Though the property is quite
extensive it was only three places the birds were dying.
The location was a small
lake area surrounded by trees with wire netting on the planks surrounding the
water. Dieback was evident on
the tops of many of the trees n a clump near the lake/pond.
Penny's experiences show that
where there is metal i.e., tin sheds, fences etc. there are more problems
with animals illnesses and deaths and also with human health.

VALLEY OF OURUHIA NEW ZEALAND.
I, and others have been exposed
to emissions from a radio tower which had permission to transmit low levels of AM
and in 1990 without permission illegally began transmitting FM. Many
people and animals in the area became ill, some died. My family, staff,
and animals have all suffered dreadful health problems. I am a public horse
trainer and the effects on my horses was catastrophic.

AFFECTED IN CANADA
few years ago I had a case around Paris, Ontario of problems like the ones
encountered by Penny Hargreaves. The dairy farm was having lots of problems when
TV transmitters were put in two farms away, with the focus heads pointing
towards my clients farm.
Cows, rabbits, and other animals were being born deformed and milk production was down. I do not believe that a salt marsh means anything at all with RF signal but do believe that the more hair there is on a being the more signal can be absorbed. I have taken electric field measurements on animals inside the mouth. Of course body mass means more signal also.
If there are no national laws regarding RF signal (we have almost none) than attempting to fight large interests, for most people, would mean selling all land, homes, animals - so as to have enough money to fight. The result either way would be the loss of everything. My farmer decided to use the media against the media (tower owners) to push his fight.
My job was to report readings and to suggest ways to live within the existing situation. We wrapped the barn in a heavy copper cable about ten feet up off the ground and put grounding rods in at 4 points. That resulted is calming the area inside the barn but the cows did not want to go out even in the spring as fresh shoots of grass were coming up. They had to push them out for a while each day.
The expensive copper wire went around the barn but not around the grain room. Thus when I came back and walked into this lower attached building I was almost knocked off my feet by an energy flow that left me dizzy. It was like a vortex.
Also attached to the grain room is the silo and a thick wire runs from the top to the bottom. That wire heated up so much they worried about a fire if something touched it long enough. The wire is needed for storm protection but now it is just acting as an antenna. Every client is like working with a new puzzle.
