Opposition and warnings continue to increase about tens of thousands of satellites and similar vehicles being launched for blasting 5G and WiFi at Earth (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15), global surveillance, and other purposes. Many entities are responsible for this. Now more of them want to blast radiation from the sky.

Deutsche Telekom-backed venture seeks to replace 5G masts with aircraft
Cambridge Consultants and its partner Stratospheric Platforms Limited (SPL) are claiming a breakthrough in the antenna technology that Cambridge developed for SPL’s system for replacing 5G infrastructure on the ground with airborne cell towers.
SPL is working to develop a system that will replace masts on the ground with unmanned aircraft, which are essentially flying cell towers. SPL, which also is headquartered in Cambridge, U.K., is developing a High-Altitude Platform (HAP) and communications system operating in the stratosphere.
The rollout of 4G/LTE was slow and expensive in the U.K., and with the move to 5G, it’s estimated that an additional 400,000 masts will be needed to cover the U.K., so if the aircraft can replace hundreds of masts, the economics works out very quickly, said SPL CEO Richard Deakin during a media briefing on Monday.
Depending on how many back-up aircraft are used, about 60 aircraft could cover the U.K. Each aircraft can replace at least 200 masts, depending on the configuration, a huge benefit over the installation of masts across the country, Deakin said.
High-speed internet CAN be achieved without 5G and WiFi. It is safer and more secure. Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Radiation (aka “Electrosmog”) could lead to health issues in a significant percentage of the population.
