My parents are looking at property outside of the city - they are thinking to retire a little ways out into the country.
My wife and I went with them to look at this one property - and it's very, very nice. Lots of acreage, a large springfed lake right on the property (the water was crystal clear, lots of nice big fish in it as well). Log cabin style home, lots of space, gosh what a nice property.
Knowing me I did an antennasearch.com search before even going out there and there's a big tower smack dab across the street. Luckily it's a long driveway, but the tower is still about 2600 feet from the house.
We went out there to look at the property and geez the tower is big. BIG tower with tons of antennas on it. Readings in front of the house were 100 microwatts/m2 or greater. Inside the house wasn't as bad - the house does a decent job of blocking. I'm going to take more measurements and actually use the frequency filters this time - but it was raining when I was out there last so I couldn't take many measurements outside.
So, what does everyone think? A BIG cell tower staring at you a half mile away - line of sight - no trees or anything in between. Ugh this property would be so ideal if it weren't for that. Would love to hear what others think.
