    Hi everyone,

    Although I realise my question is not actually "electronics" related, I
    thought I might ask the question here as its "electricity" related.

    I'm looking at houses, and one of the areas in which I'm looking has quite a
    few of the massive overhead power lines on the big metal towers.
    No doubt you're aware that people fear the EMF generated by such lines, and
    I wondered is it really worth worrying about, or are there any known facts
    relating to what could possibly result in the potential for radiation
    injuries and/or cancer, etc from continued exposure to the generated fields.

    Any opinions or useful web sites on the subject would be greatly
    appreciated.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Adam

    ** Just Google " power lines cancer " .

    Take your paranoid, conspiracy theory TROLLING elsewhere.

  3. **I hope you don't use a cell 'phone. The radiation from one of those
    puppies, 1cm from your noggin is MUCH worse than power lines 10 Metres off
    the ground. And for heavan's sake don't EVER lie on a bed with an electric
    blanket! Don't forget that pesky inverse square law stuff, which I'm certain
    you remember from high school. With a leccy blanky, you're on it for upwards
    of 8 HOURS and it is close contact with your body for that time.
    Additionally, it is generally thought that the frequency of the waveform is
    more harmful as it is increased (those pesky cell 'phones again), so 50Hz
    from power lines 10 Metres up is pretty much unlikely to do any damage at
    all.

    Cell 'phones, OTOH, are a more serious worry. I am convinced that all the
    data is yet to be properly collated from these things. And I don't mean cell
    'phone towers either (inverse square law and all that).
     
  4. Don't buy a house under or near big power lines.
    Regardless of whether or not there is any real health risk, your resale
    value will SUCK.

    There has been some tests done recently that detect electrostatic
    trapping of atmospheric pollutants around HV powerlines so the
    combination of pollution and HV powerlines is not good.

    I use some serious power on Hf ( radio operator) and once measured the
    emf in the shack

    frightened me till I remembered at least I know whats gonna finish me :)

    Then obviously the current/previous owners resale value will suck and YOU
    will get a bargain :)
    The relative increase over time will almost certainly be similar to any
    other house in the wider area.

  10. If you can find someone who will buy it.
    There are other disadvantages too, like any money spent on upgrading a
    house under a power line is a much worse investment than the same money
    spent on one not under power lines.
    Houses under power lines get a vastly lower number of potential buyers,
    so when it's time to sell, you have less chance of getting a sucker
    paying a high price, or people outbiding each other in a frenzy market
    etc.

    All of which acts in your favour when you're looking to buy a house to live
    in, rather than an investment property.
    The health aspect would be less of a worry for an investment property though
    :)

    ** OTOH, I was never in any such doubt about YOU for a moment.


    ** ROTFL !!

    What has that load of obvious bollocks got to do with rampant paranoia over
    cancer - FUCKWIT ??

    No need to reply - its was rhetorical ......



    ** May I very sincerely suggests you go straight back to perusing your
    Downs Syndrome kiddie fucking web sites - as per usual.

  13. For ages now I was wondering if you were a wanker or not. Now you have
    proven it to me. My most service calls have been due to electronic equipment
    below, or near major power lines.


    ***** Pot,kettle,black,wotta lame brained wanker!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think you understand what trolling is. This may help
    <http://www.faqs.org/faqs/cultures/irish-faq/part01/section-6.html>.
    You will find the last sentence particularly illuminating so I'll
    repeat it here "It's perhaps worth mentioning that not everything you
    personally find offensive is necessarily a troll."
     
  18. No Rod's bum buddy. :p

    ** No it is YOU that does not have a clue what TROLLING is.


    ** Nope - cos it is a completely inadequate definition.

    There are many far better and more complete defs of trolling to be found.

    Ones that include posts that are way off topic on somebody's hobby horse.
