Arnold’s tourism role recognised

If tourism is the lifeblood of the Byron Shire, then Cameron Arnold is one of its key haematologists.

In light of the growing interest in Mullumbimby’s exposure to additional wi-fi microwaves I thought your readers might like to know that they already possess a device that is brilliant at detecting RF and, more importantly, will reveal the relative differences of EMF sources around the home. This way you can discuss the subject with less fear and a better sense of reality.

Here’s how: Take any AM radio. Tune between stations where there is silence. Turn the volume up and start scanning things in your home using it like a Geiger counter. You will notice strange new buzzes as you approach anything that emits EMF. Things like your laptop, mobile phone, flat-screen TV, energy-efficient light globes, dimmers, cordless phone, solar inverter, fans, DVD player. You can even walk down the main street and listen for hot spots.

I spent my youth working in radio, hold a First Class FCC licence and specialise in audio, so know how to use audio equipment to turn up your senses.  Happy scanning.

Mike Stavrou, Mullumbimby
