VHP, what’s that? VHP stands for Vertical • Horizontal • Power— the three Amigos of Antennas! If our City has not regulated all three — as a set — then it has accomplished nothing. Learn more here.
All of us who live within two miles of the Corner of Western and Baker Avenues are being placed in harms way by a Verizon/Complete Wireless Antenna Farm (PLMA-20-0003/PLUP-19-000): 16 Antennas capable of Outputting more than 530,000 Watts of Effective Radiated Power.
Can you spell O-V-E-R-K-I-L-L?
What do you think . . . this is 530,000 Watts of Effective Radiated Power (ERP) vs. the abilities of these cute-as-button children to sleep, heal, and develop their brains without such a massive invasion that threatens the rights of this family on Western Ave. to the Quiet Enjoyment of their streets and their own home . . . Is this invasion necessary? Of course not.
Wireless Cos. need only 0.1 Watt of ERP for telecommunications service (wireless phone calls) something that everyone can already do quite well within the two-mile radius of the Petaluma Creamery. What is going on?
