So I was wondering is it the pulsing that is the worst part of the pollution?

What is pulsing exactly? A frequency?

Pulsing is a secondary frequency that is the result of modulation of the carrier wave. Modulation is the way information is superimposed onto a carrier wave - usually by varying the amplitude of the carrier wave in a pattern that represents decodable information. For example: imagine you want to transmit information in morse-code via an ordinary light. If you flip a light switch on/off in a morse pattern, you're modulating the light (carrier) with decodable information. Anyone receiving the light, can decode the message.

In wireless telecommunications, the carrier wave is microwave energy, typically in the Gigahertz frequency range and the digital information is modulated onto it. You probably remember GSM phones being able to disturb other radios and hi-fi (music) equipment with a "da-dak-da-dak" pattern. That's the pulses - or patterned bursts of transmission of the GSM modulation becoming audible through electromagnetic interference. GSM is simple and 3G and 4G, being able to transmit high-speed data, is of course far more complex.

The modulation interferes with biological systems in a similar manner.

Mobile-phone masts transmit constantly. This is by design and the mast is broadcasting to its coverage area. If you use the modulation-to-audio feature that some measuring gear has, on an idle mobile-phone mast (i.e. not relaying calls or data) you'll hear a constant "scream". When calls and/or data goes through, you'll hear that as a noise on top of the screaming sound. Not trying to be dramatic, but just trying to illustrate,

Hope this helps.

Thanks Henrik, cleared a lot of things up. Interesting too.

I might of missed something but can't they have a on demand transmission? Rather than constant?

Thanks again.

Also it is worrying. Can anything other than metal stuff protect us from the constant-ness? Particular nutrients, foods? Lifestyle?

Anything that provides easy hope :).

The technology could have been designed for on-demand transmission, but I guess since the engineers designing it, are brainwashed into thinking there's no possible harm in microwaves but heating, it was made always-on and the transmission levels kept (mostly) below the thermal threshold.
To make basestation->mobile communication on-demand would be technically more complicated.

Wi-Fi, however, could've easily been designed for devices (laptops etc.) to request router/access-point service upon connection, and the router/AP otherwise staying "silent". As its designed now, the router/AP broadcasts a continuous timing signal for devices to detect and sync to. Its just technically simpler for the router/AP to broadcast all the time. And there were apparently no "green" power-saving requirements back when Wi-Fi was conceived.

DECT-phones, for example do exist in an "alternate" low-power version, where the base only transmits when needed and keeps transmission power at minimum required for connection. Certain SIEMENS Gigaset DECT-phones are made with this "ECO-Dect" technology. It works, I've tested them. When the handset is close to the base during talk, there's very little signal.

So, yes it can be done. The engineers mostly just haven't considered it as a requirement. But that might change soon because of power-supply considerations for mobile tech. Especially for rolling out in developing countries where power supply is poor. For example, countries like Pakistan and Nigera are having big trouble rolling out their mast infrastructure because is uses too much power. In some countries the mobile-phone masts are only turned on during a certain time of day. Because they need the power for other things that are actually life necessities...

Ah very interesting read, thanks for your effort and time.

So the engineers just cut corners because they saw nothing ill-health wise in doing so. Damn. But at least I know its possible for on-demand. Thanks Henrik.

Does any one know if this Ebay meter is good for identifying frequencies and strengths please?

" 8GHz 1-8000Mhz OLED RF Power Meter -55~-5 dBm + Sofware RF Attenuation Value "

Cos its only £25. Sadly there is no explanation and the Chinese guys selling it cannot explain what does as usual as no one cares who sells. It certainly looks good.
Can I use it to ID the TETRA signals which my Faraday cage lorry box has difficulty stopping?
I have a bolometer type device but would like to know what I am being exposed to and work out what is doing me in so much.
