I would like to know about radome emissions. Radome in question is located on the west coast of Ireland. Its purpose is monitoring of international aircraft passing overhead. It has been described as Type 2. It emits at a power of 2.5 kW pulsed microwaves at a frequency of 1 GHz (according to one of its employees) or possibly at several frequencies according to how many aircraft are in the sky at the time (according to another employee). Equipment keeps being updated but no info available to general public. Anybody got any thoughts on this? What happens to microwaves that fail to come in contact with anything on their journey of 256 miles? Do they return to the radome or do they 'dissipate'? Can there be a build up of 'dissipated' microwaves in the atmosphere? Are the microwaves which detect something on their journey the only ones which return to their radome source? We are told that no microwaves emit from the radome anything less than the horizontal and that there is a tilt of some 5 to 9 degrees upwards (which is pre-set in the factory). We want to know if the weather conditions, which can be unusual in this area (North Mayo) can affect the microwaves coming from the radome? Do microwaves travel in a straight line only? Are ICNIRP Guidelines globally recognised? For electromagnetic fields up to 300 GHz, is 1997 the latest guidelines from ICNIRP guiding regulatory authorities? If so, why are authorities using information so out of date? Would satellite navigation of international aircraft not be more appropriate in 2011 than having installations on the ground? Are radomes located in communities where people live in close proximity to them dangerous to the health and safety of those indigenous people? Local issues: Cancer clusters appearing in areas located close to the radome (10 - 12 years after it was first built), local people suffering from headaches and tinnitus, potatoes failing to thrive in areas where they have been grown for centuries and failing to keep after harvesting since this radome was erected. Thank you for any help or advice.
