Cellular & NIMBY
Original post made by Paul Losch, a resident of Palo Alto, on Apr 4, 2011
There are many in generations younger that don't need or value such a thing. It is a dinosaur.
I was driving along Middlefield over the weekend, and across from the Little League Park were signs objecting to the notion of cellular telephone antennas being installed at the ball park.
I live near the church on Channing Avenue which also has offered to provide a place for additional cellular capacity.
The alleged reason for opposition, without evidence, is that these antennas are a health hazard.
Let's face it: cellular phones are here to stay. Land lines will go away, after a long and dignified service.
I am of the point of view that those objecting to antennas in their neighborhoods are the new NIMBYS.
