Crystal Palace, Sandy Heath, Sutton Coldfield.

Until the digital fail-over, all of these UK TV transmitters:

Crystal Palace in London

Sandy Heath in Bedfordshire

Sutton Coldfield near Birmingham

...transmitted analogue television with 1 million watts of Effective Radiated Power (ERP). If there was an issue with electro-sensitivity, the millions of people around these transmitters would be showing some serious issues. I grew-up in the shadow of Sandy Heath (with the 400kV National Grid also running through the area) and I am not aware of anyone claiming issues with the transmitter.

Suggest the installation of a mobile-phone tower and it's another issue. Just don't tell them I am licensed to transmit with 400Wpep in a residential neighbourhood!
