cell tower next door
« on: February 13, 2012, 04:16:44 AM »
Has anyone ever lived next to a cell phone/tv tower ? I am looking at a 20 acre parcel that has a tower on the next plot. Does it attract lightning or maybe act as a buffer? Do they howl in winds? I have horses so the lightning thing is my biggest concern. ???

As far as horses being lighting rods I have heard the same.  Yet I have been around horses and all types of live stock all my life.  (I'm sixty)  Never seen or of heard of a specific case with horses.  We have a neighbor up at at the ranch that lost a cow and calf in a lighting strike.  Closest cell phone tower is like 30 miles away.  Them being so tall and prone to strikes, they are grounded and engineered for that.  I would think your horses could be safer there.

Most of the discussion on this forum have been on the radiation and the rads that they omit to the surrounding environs.
