New Safety Testing Video From Mike Wood From Telstra
By Kelly Abeleven
How can it be the responsibility of a telecommunications industry representative to write the standards, as well as test base stations and wireless networks for compliance with the emission standards?
We note that Mike Wood, Principal for Telstra’s EME Strategy, Governance and Risk Management program is currently Chairman of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) TC106 which has global responsibility for EME testing standards for mobile phones, devices, wireless networks and radio communication systems.
Mike is also active in the ITU standards and in Australia chairs the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA) RF Safety Compliance Program.
We note that an ethics committee might consider writing, testing and profiting from compliance with a standard to be a conflict of interest. We strongly believe that medical professionals and independent scientists should be allocated to roles dealing with the health and safety of the public in the deployment of 5G.
They say the new equipment will be available in Australia in 3 months. This means they had the infrastructure in place and they were testing new frequencies in residential and commercial areas before these meters were even available in Australia.
Anyway, how is a Telstra employee writing the standards and regulating his industry?
It is also important to note that our safety standards do not take long term exposure into account – this is a huge concern, especially for our children.
*Positive news – Mike Woods confirms in this video that the window tinting (normal building practice) blocks the mm waves.

Here are some quotes from the video:
“The history of 5G goes back many years, last year, it was 5 years…”
“We’ve got a base station directly across the road”
“Kids gaming on mm wave”
“Even mobile phones are struggling inside with mm waves”
“Line of Sight is a concern in terms of exposure/connection and an important issue”
“Millimetre waves are an issue”
“If it is not line of sight you won’t be able to make a connection or measure it”
“Even our phones struggle to connect to it”
“Hey Google, boil the kettle”
“I hope Google is listening”
“Google, turn off the kettle”
“We even have robot vacuums”
