I have been reading just a bit about cell phone towers which emit microwave energy in the process of transmitting cell phone signals. A couple of years ago I bought a Trifield meter to measure household electromagnetic frequencies(EMFS). This meter has been very helpful when trying to place electric appliances and lights far enough away from where people spend much of their time. It is thought that too many EMFS negatively affect human health.
I don't use a microwave oven anymore since my old microwave bit the dust so I was never able to test out the microwave setting on my Trifield meter. A couple of years ago when a fierce summer storm was headed our way I just happened to turn on my meter for another purpose and noticed that the meter was reading reading in the red zone of the microwave setting.When the storm moved away the microwave reading disappeared. This happened twice that summer and one of the storms featured the weathermen predicting possible tornadoes. It dawned on me that perhaps microwave energy has been or is currently being used in conjunction with weather modification. The military does have satellite microwave weapons capability. I began to keep a log. Winter storms didn't appear to affect my meter. However, this summer I have again been keeping a record. This past week we have had very humid weather and many thunderstorms. Each time the humidty was high and a storm was approaching ,the microwave reading would climb, level off and then the reading would recede along with the storm. The next day...if it was nice, I would check the meter again and the reading would be zero.
In trying to figure it all out, in the beginning I was hypothesizing that mircowave energy may be being used to manipulate the weather. This may still be true , however, I was just reading that when there is high humidity this atmospheric state makes it more difficult for the cell phone microwave transmissions to go through the atmosphere resulting in poor cell phone reception. Perhaps there are sensors on the cell phone towers and when the air is humid or weather interrupts the signals....the microwave energy is turned up. When the storm and/or humidty passes the signals are lowered.
Here is a bit of info on how humidity affects cell phone transmission.
Then I was also wondering about the relation of chemtrails being laid down heavily before storm fronts. Maybe this "effort" is partially for keeping particulates aloft in the atmosphere which may help conduct cell phone and or military transmissions.
I would be interested in any feedback people have..so if you feel inclined please post a response on this blog. Thankyou!
A Radio Frequency Engineer Responds To This Posting. His explanation sounds very feasible and upon further experimentation with my meter it appears that his explanation may be the answer to my question. However a new question needs to be asked. What are the effects on the human body and wildlife when microwave readings register in the red danger zone in the general atmosphere?
Re: HIGH MICROWAVE ENERGY IN ATMOSPHERE NOW!
I am a retired RF (Radio Frequency) engineer. There are two mechanisms that would increase local microwave energy when it rains or a storm comes through:
(1) Both the cell phone towers and the cell phones themselves self-adjust the transmitted RF signal level based on feedback from the other side as to the received RF signal. For example when there are more RF losses in the atmosphere during periods of high humidity or especially rain, the receive side (your cell phone) sends back a message indicating it needs more signal and the cell phone tower increases the RF signal level transmitted. And likewise, when the cell phone sees that RF signal from the cell phone is low it instructs the Cell phone to increase its transmit power. Thus, when it rains or storms all the cellular transmitters in your immediate vicinity turn up the transmitted RF power - that includes both the cell phones and the cell phone towers. Even if your cell phone is not active, it "pings" (transmits short burts of signals) back and forth between the cell phone and the tower to keep the connection alive and ready to make or receive a call. If you are relatively near a cell tower then the tower is the source of your microwave energy. If you are not too near the tower then your cell phone and all the cell phones in your neighborhood are the source of your microwave energy.
(The actual mechanism is sort of the negative of this, the signal power is turned down until it transmits just enough RF power to communicate - but to simply the explanation, the above is the equivalent.)
(2) Lightning creates short bursts of RF energy in all frequencies - including microwaves. It's not just the lightning strikes you see, but also the ones you don't see inside and between clouds which are more numerous.
I hope this helps,
I thanked the reader for his response and then asked him whether or not the microwave energy could be harmful to life. Here is his response to that question:
