FREQUENCIES AND OPERATING PROTOCOLS OF CELLULAR WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS

The early cellular networks used an analog transmission protocol (called frequency-division multiple access – FDMA), in which speech frequency modulates a continuous wave carrier. In the USA these cellular systems operate in the 824 – 894 MHz frequency range (824-849 MHz for the mobile/hand-helds and 869-894 MHz for the base stations), which was formerly allocated to UHF television channels 69-84.

At the beginning of the 1990s these systems were reaching the limits of their capacity in many service areas. This led to the introduction of new classes of cellular service using digital techniques, such as time-division multiple-access (TDMA), hybrid TDMA/FDMA, and more recently code-division multiple-access (CDMA). These digital systems operate in the same frequency band as the analog systems, but provide more voice channels per radio channel. In Europe, the most commonly used cellular system is called GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication), which is a hybrid TDMA/FDMA system, and operates in the 935-960 frequency band.

Personal Communication Services (PCS) is a newer wireless technology that operates in the 1800-2000 MHz band, using both TDMA and CDMA technologies. Compared with analog cellular systems, PCS systems operate at lower power levels, with more closely spaced cells and lower power handsets.

In the USA, the Federal Communications Commission originally authorized up to two cellular service providers per service area. However, to promote competition, new frequency bands have been created, and new services are being introduced. These include specialized mobile radio (SMR) and enhanced specialized radio (ESMR), which operate at frequencies just below those used for cellular service. In addition, two PCS carriers are also licensed to operate in many regions of the United States.

RF energy includes waves with frequencies ranging from about 3000 waves per second (3 kHz) to 300 billion waves per second (300 GHz). Microwaves are a subset of radio waves that have frequencies ranging from around 300 million waves per second (300 MHz) to three billion waves per second (3 GHz).

http://www.fda.gov/cellphones/qa.html#1

Current mobile phone systems operate at frequencies between 800 and 1800 MHz. It is important not to confuse such RF fields with ionizing radiation, such as X-rays or gamma rays. Unlike ionizing radiation, RF fields cannot cause ionization or radioactivity in the body. Because of this, RF fields are called non-ionizing.

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs193/en/

802.11b and 802.11g standards use the 2.4 gigahertz (GHz) band, operating (in the USA) under Part 15 of the FCC Rules and Regulations. Because of this choice of frequency band, 802.11b and 802.11g equipment can incur interference from microwave ovens, cordless telephones, Bluetooth devices, and other appliances using this same band. The 802.11a standard uses the 5 GHz band, and is therefore not affected by products operating on the 2.4 GHz band.

Which part of the radio frequency spectrum may be used varies between countries, with the strictest limitations in the USA. While it is true that in the USA 802.11a and g devices may be legally operated without a license, it is not true that 802.11a and g operate in an unlicensed portion of the radio frequency spectrum. Unlicensed (legal) operation of 802.11 a & g is covered under Part 15 of the FCC Rules and Regulations. Frequencies used by channels one (1) through six (6) (802.11b) fall within the range of the 2.4 gigahertz amateur radio band. Licensed amateur radio operators may operate 802.11b devices under Part 97 of the FCC Rules and Regulations that apply.

Ultra-Wideband (UWB) is a technology for transmitting information spread over a large bandwidth that should, in theory and under the right circumstances, be able to share spectrum with other users. A February 14, 2002 Report and Order by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) [1] authorizes the unlicensed use of UWB in 3.1–10.6 GHz.

Ultra Wideband was traditionally accepted as impulse radio, but the FCC and ITU-R now define UWB in terms of a transmission from an antenna for which the emitted signal bandwidth exceeds the lesser of 500 MHz or 20% bandwidth.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra-wideband

Cypress’s “WirelessUSB™” is a protocol that uses the 2.4 GHz ISM band with a range from 10 meters (at max 1 Mbit/s) to 50 meters (at max 62.5 kbit/s) and is designed for Human Interface Devices (HIDs), with current offerings from companies such as Belkin, Logitech, and Virtual Ink.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_USB

HomeRF used FHSS (frequency hopping spread spectrum) in the 2.4 GHz frequency band and could achieve a maximum of 10 Mbit/s throughput; its nodes can travel within a 50 meter range of an access point while remaining connected to the PAN (personal area network).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HomeRF

(VFIR) infrared transceivers available such as the TFDU8108 operating from 9.6 kbit/s to 16 Mbit/s. The UFIR (Ultra Fast Infrared) protocol is also in development. It will support speeds up to 100 Mbit/s.

Radio specifications

Bandwidth: 9,600 bit/s or 40,000 bit/s, fully interoperable

Modulation: GFSK

Range: Approximately 100 feet (or 30 meters) assuming “open air” conditions, with reduced range indoors depending on building materials, etc.

Frequency band: The Z-Wave Radio uses the 900 MHz ISM frequency bands. 908.42 MHz in the US 868.42 MHz in Europe.

[edit]

Radio specifics

In Europe, the 868 MHz band has a 1% duty cycle limitation, meaning that a Z-wave unit can only transmit 1% of the time. This limitation is not present in the US 908 MHz band, but US legislation imposes a 1 mW transmission power limit (as opposed to 25 mW in Europe). Z-wave units can be in power-save mode and only be active 0.1% of the time, thus reducing power consumption dramatically.

LibertyLink’s transceivers provide 410 kbit/s data rates using time-division-duplexing of a Gaussian Minimum Shift Keyed (GMSK) modulated magnetic field at 13.56 MHz.

Columbia Rural Electric Association subsidiary offers 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi service across a 3,700 mi² (9,500 km²) region within Walla Walla and Columbia counties in Washington and Umatilla County, Oregon.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wi-Fi

ZigBee devices are required to conform to the IEEE 802.15.4-2003 Low-Rate Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) standard. The standard specifies its lower protocol layers—the physical layer (PHY), and the medium access control (MAC) portion of the data link layer (DLL). This standard specifies operation in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz, 915 MHz and 868 MHz ISM bands. In the 2.4 GHz band there are 16 ZigBee channels, with each channel requiring 3 MHz of bandwidth. The center frequency for each channel can be calculated as, FC = (2400 + 5*k) MHz, where k = 1, 2, …, 16.

The radios use direct-sequence spread spectrum coding, which is managed by the digital stream into the modulator. BPSK is used in the 868 and 915 MHz bands, and orthogonal QPSK that transmits two bits per symbol is used in the 2.4 GHz band. The raw, over-the-air data rate is 250 kbit/s per channel in the 2.4 GHz band, 40 kbit/s per channel in the 915 MHz band, and 20 kbit/s in the 868 MHz band. Transmission range is between 10 and 75 metres (33~246 feet), although it is heavily dependent on the particular environment. The maximum output power of the radios is generally 0 dBm (1 mW).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZigBee

The 802.16 specification applies across a wide swath of RF spectrum. However, specification is not the same as permission to use! There is no uniform global licensed spectrum for WiMAX. In the US, the biggest segment available is around 2.5 GHz, and is already assigned, primarily to Sprint Nextel, along with Clearwire in more rural areas. Elsewhere in the world, the most likely bands used will be around 3.5 GHz, 2.3/2.5 GHz, or 5 GHz, with 2.3/2.5 GHz probably being most important in Asia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WiMAX

“At cellular telephone frequency bands of 900MHz and 1.8GHz, the current U.K. NRPB investigation levels raised the U.K. permitted levels to 10 Watts per Kg in the head. The 1991 USA ANSI/IEEE C95.1 guidelines set the SAR at 1.6 W/Kg, and the CENELEC pre-standard states 2 W/Kg for the public. GSM Cellular-phones can deliver well over 2 W/Kg into head tissue during their output pulses, but they are said to comply because the average power is only about one-eighth of the pulse power (GSM & PCN digital phones), as up to eight calls share one channel using Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) with each handset pulsing in one of eight time slots. Unlike the earlier analogue phones, the digital GSM ones emit a series of short pulses at a basic repetition rate of 217Hz.”

"A typical U.S. home has the Earth's  constant magnetic field of about 450 mG and a 60-Hz background magnetic
field level (primarily not from power lines) that ranges from 0.5 mG to 4 mG with an average value of 0.9 mG.
Five percent of the homes have fields above 2.9 mG, and 1% are above 6.6 mG.  For comparison sake, 
one study reports that electrical powerline workers experience an average field of 11 mG. 
Typical transmission power lines produce average fields at distances of 30 and 60 meters as follows:

E (V/m at 30/60 m)                B (mG at 30/60 m)

115 kV                                    0.07/0.01                                1.7/0.4

230 kV                                    0.3/0.05                                  7.1/1.8

500 kV                                    1.0/0.3                                            12.6/3.2

"As a simple example, a two wire 500 MW transmission line at 500 kV draws 500 amperes in opposing directions in the two wires.  From Ampere's law a single wire of 500 A produces a field of 33 mG at a distance of 30 m.  If two opposing currents of 500 A are separated by 4 meters, the field will

be 4.4 mG (in the plane of the wires).  By reducing the separation to 1 m, the field falls to 1.1 mG.  At a doubled distance of 60 m, the field from the single conductor is 17 mG and the fields from the paired conductors are 1.1 mG for a 4-meter separation and 0.3 mG for 1-meter separation.  Motor and appliance electrical coils produce either magnetic

dipole or quadrupole fields that diminish as the inverse square or cube of the distance, respectively.  
Average fields at a distance of 30 cm are: color television (7 mG), microwave (4 mG), 
analog clocks (15 mG), electric razors (20 mG, 100 mG at 15 cm) and hair driers (1 mG, 300 mG at 15 cm)."

Questions to peruse….

If every one of these frequencies affect the human body in a different way, some may be positive and some negative. It may affect different people in different ways depending on their frequency. If we are made of energy, what affect are these frequencies having on people individually and collectively?

” In 1999, as a result of public concerns about possible health hazards from mobile phone technology, the UK Government formed the Independent Expert Group on Mobile Phones (IEGMP) to examine possible effects of mobile phones and transmitter base stations. This group was headed by Sir William Stewart, the famous British biochemist and president of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. What made the Stewart Inquiry unique, was that it was made up almost entirely of biomedical specialists — and so were able to focus many man-years of acquired specialist knowledge on the problem.”

Their report, Mobile Phones and Health, was released in April 2005. In regards to the use of mobile phones by children the IEGMP stated:

“If there are currently unrecognised adverse health effects from the use of mobile phones, children may be more vulnerable because of their developing nervous system, the greater absorption of energy in the tissues of the head and a longer lifetime of exposure. In line with our precautionary approach, we believe that the widespread use of mobile phones by children for non-essential calls should be discouraged. We also recommend that the mobile phone industry should refrain from promoting the use of mobile phones by children.”

Electromagnetic fields Photos permitted by the National Radiological Protection Board, UK

“Electromagnetic fields of all frequencies represent one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences, about which anxiety and speculation are spreading. All populations are now exposed to varying degrees of EMF, and the levels will continue to increase as technology advances.”

“As part of its Charter to protect public health and in response to public concern, the World Health Organization (WHO) established the International EMF Project in 1996 to assess the scientific evidence of possible health effects of EMF in the frequency range from 0 to 300 GHz.”
“The EMF Project is open to broad participation.”

“The EMF Project is open to any WHO Member State government, i.e. department of health, or representatives of other national institutions concerned with radiation protection. The project is fully funded by participating countries and agencies.”

It is time for the funding agencies to realizethat we need to be asking new and different questions

about electropollution, EMF’s, and radiation.

There has been considerable research already done showing

relationships between many dis-ease processes and

electromagnetic frequencies. However, there has been a

limitation in the thinking so far, which raises new questions.

What if the cause and effect are not a direct link?

If the cell membrane is being affected by EMF’s, what effect

does that have on the body?

Would it always be the same effect on different kinds

of people?

If the signalizing enzymes are being affected by EMF’s,

would that always show up as the same kind of disease?

Why are some people more susceptible to symptoms from

EMF’s than others? Is there a genetic difference? A

cumulative difference? A geographic differernce?

A psychological difference? A consciousness difference?

A usuage difference?

How can one possibly set up a truly valid scientific study

when there are so many variables?

How long will it be before more people show signs

of cellular damage? How can it be measured?

What tests are there?

Since kids are on the phone much more than adults,

in some cases, are they likely to show symptoms sooner

because of the cumulative effect, or later because of

stronger immune systems?

These are questions that require the input of many

different kinds of professional to set up a good study.

It’s not so simple as saying A cause B.

How many people have to suffer before this issue is resolved?

It’s time to think outside the box!

“Specific absorption rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate at which radio frequency (RF) energy is absorbed by the body when exposed to radio-frequency electromagnetic field. The most common use is in relation to cellular telephones. In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted limits for safe exposure to RF energy produced by mobile devices and requires that phones sold in the U.S. have a SAR level at or below 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg) taken over a volume of 1 gram of tissue. In the EU the corresponding limit is 2 W/kg taken over a volume of 10 grams.”
