Picnic in the Dead Zone

Today, I talked to Christoph. He is from a local, rather new intiative here in Nothern Germany:

     Picknick im Funkloch

(Picnic in the Dead Zone).

We discussed how DAS-NETZWERKTEAM (my FLOSS business) can support that initiative on the technical level (we will start with mailing lists).

The Picnic in the Dead Zone initiative aims at making people more aware of possible health and social consequences that may be caused by the upcoming 5G mobile standard reaching 90%-plus coverage.

Personally, I know individual people who are (highly) sensitive to electro-magnetic radiation and fields (they can tell you if wireless network is on or off, tell you which access point where in the house is on or off, can differentiate between WiFi and PoweLAN, etc.). For people with such a sensitivity it is crucial to have spots in the country they want to live in, where electro-magnetic radiation is at a minimum level. Mobile connectivity does not work for everyone. Hyper-sensitive people suffer from it, in fact.

@all-the-Germans: Currently, there is an ePetition waiting for (maybe your) signature(s) on the German Bundestag's ePetition home page. The signing deadline is pretty close: 4th April 2019. If you think, that we should re-consider the whole 5G technology once more, study its impact on animal (including ourselves) physiology and plant physiology a little bit better, then please take some time and visit this URL and consider signing the following petition (if, do it asap):
