CELL TOWER GALLERY

This is a collection of photos of cell towers around Tucson with measurements of the Radio Frequency (wireless) radiation they are emitting.  Radiation is measured in "micro watts per meter-squared"               .  Unless otherwise noted, for each tower, three numbers are given:      the maximum level of radiation, the mean (average) within 20 feet, and the mean within one block.  

For reference, the safety guidelines from the Building Biology Institute are:

These guidelines are for sleeping areas, but they apply to any area where people spend a lot of time.
