The reason for RF emission from new DVD/GPS Car unit - Active GPS antenna

Few weeks back I got a new Car DVD/GPS unit for my small Fiat Panda.
I am an EHS person and the car was already tested and found to be low EMF car.
In addition I have installed  RF protection film over the windows to block the RF coming from cellphone towers along the side of the road.
2 weeks ago I installed the new system in my car and was amazed that the system emitted RF radiation even after the WIFI was turned OFF and the Bluetooth was not operating.
I reported that on my latest post: http://norad4u.blogspot.com/2017/06/how-can-people-stand-car-multimedia-gps.html
It took me few days of trial and error  + testing the unit with an RF meter to find out where the radiation is coming from, it was the GPS antenna.

This a video I did after finding out that the GPS antenna was emitting the radiation
https://youtu.be/85yf96bamX4



I first thought that it must be a mistake, or a bug since I thought there should not be any RF emission from a GPS Antenna, since GPS units do not emit any RF, right? wrong!
Today I found-out that the GPS antenna main pin has 3.3V on it, I was begging to think why.
Later on tonight I came to the conclusion that the antenna must be an ACTIVE ANTENNA.
Did some research and it turns out that there are Active antennas for GPS out there and that some GPS units need them, and some come-with them.

So this in an other thing to test when you buy a car or a DVD/GPS unit for the car, does the GPS unit is Active or Passive.

I am still trying to work this out , maybe it is possible to just connect a passive antenna and all will be OK, maybe I will need to find a switch in the software or GUI. I hope I will manage to do it and to make this unit a NO RF EMISSION unit so I can use it in my car.

I will update as the drill down continues, stay tuned.

How can people stand Radio Frequencies emitting devices in side the car?

I love consumer electronic.
I love audio systems.

2 years ago I even built my own set of floor stander Audio speakers to go with my Cambridge Audio Receiver and CD Player. I made sure they will be low ELF speakers (magnetically shielded) and I use low ELF speakers cables.
I also love Car audio systems.

4 years ago I got DVD+GPS unit for my old Mazda 3 car (which I since then sold). The device came with build in WIFI+Bluetooth card. It was not possible to turn the Bluetooth or WIFI OFF in this device. At the end, I had to removed after making sure it could not be turned OFF .

2 years ago I got an 4.4 Android car DVD+NAV system from my Mazda 6. This device allowed me to turn off the WIFI+Bluetooth from the GUI setup with no need to crack it open and remove the cards.

Few weeks ago I ordered an additional new Android DVD+NAV 2DIN system for my secondary car (my Fiat Panda). It cam by the mail few days ago, and tonight I managed to install it.
So far I found no way to turn the Bluetooth of this device off, and it keep scanning for devices, emitting RF radiation in side my partially RF protected Fiat Panda.
I relay hope to find a way to disable the Bluetooth without taring it open and taking the card or chips a part.

I can't imagine how people can drive with the Bluetooth and WIFI turned on inside their car, with a smart phone and not feeling the radiation, it is so strong, as specially if you have a 4G smartphone.
I imagine that even if they don't feel it, it effects them and reduce their driving capabilities and performance.  I am an EHS person, so I can't stand the radiation from the Bluetooth hand-free unit or the smart phone (if I had one) for more then few minutes, but other people drive with these devices scanning and transmitting in side the car metal box for house.

Complaints against a public warning done by EMF awareness non profit groups in the UK.

Complaints have been filled against a public warning done by EMF awareness non profit groups in the UK.


The main argue is that there is not "good evidence" to health effect from cellphone and WIFI devices, so I guess there is no need to warn the public.
Define "good science" or "good evidence" , I guess their definition of "good evidence" (which they say does not exist) is that it is "good" only if it comply with their false theory that EMF have not health effect.
The fact that RF (Radio Frequency ) can't break an electron from the atom directly does not mean it can not cause biological changes and damage in other ways.
This is just like what we saw in the past with Tobacco, asbestos and other agents. The industry is trying to continue the selling a production of services and products that can pose a health risk.
People and scientist that believe that there is no health effect to RF exposure are not only wrong but they serve the industry's' interest and not the public and should recheck their science.

The only investigation that should be done is of the relations of those that file the complains, and of the NHS and WHO and ICNIRP with industry.
Electromagnetic Hyper Sensitivity is real and cause by exposure to EMF. people tha suffer from it are the first to react. As time passes and exposure increases, more and more people will suffer. It starts with pain in the head when talking on the cellphone and get worse with time to a point in which every exposure, to even very low level, cause pain.
In some of the studies done on EHS, the researches wrongly exposed the subjects to EMF radiation when there should have been none. Then when the subjects (not only EHS people) reacted to the exposure, the researches wrongly concluded that it was not real and cause by fear of from the phone.

If you want read about some of the science showing biological effect from Radio Frequency ( a type of non-ionizing radiation) please go to -

Jerusalem to become "smart" city

 Jerusalem municipality declared the deployment of "smart city" technology over the next few years.
The deployment, so the municipality argue, will improve their ability to serve the public.
The municipality claims that the radiation emitted from the systems is "low " and "safe"


"The frequencies used by the network are completely free and safe to use. The system is also secure and there is no risk of privacy. The equipment consumed has an extremely low radiation - lower than a standard home router - thanks to the high frequency and narrow beam."

A smart phone burst into flames in the pocket of a 9 years old kid

The problem I have with the report of this incident on the Israeli news is that almost no one wondered what does a 9 years old kid doing with a smart phone.
It has become so usual here in Israel, and in the rest of the world, that kids are given smart phones that no one think it is strange any more.
Parents (that are usually cellphone addicted themselves) give their old device to their kids when they buy themselves a new one.

Smart phones emit RF Radiation most of the time
Smart phone, unlike old mobile phones (that emit RF only while talking or SMS), emits Radio Frequency radiation most of the time as long as they are connected to the cellular data, WIFI and Bluetooth. The time of emission is increased as the use of application, messaging, and surfing increased.
The emission is even greater if the communication is done in LTE than in UMTS.
Videos:
4G vs 3G - https://youtu.be/lHzeLvx3kmg
Radiation from smart phone while idle - https://youtu.be/bLBliuGGu-4

When and how has it become OK for a 9 years old to have a smart phone?
Well, as long as the parents are addicted, as long as the ministry of health give only "soft" warnings, as long as the ministry of education allow and push for cellphone, wireless tablets and laptops in schools, as long as industry develop devices for kids, as long as the World health organisation is reluctant to take farther action, as long as the exposure standards are based on heat and not health, as long people don't understand how and when they devices radiates, as long as people who report health effects from RF and EMF exposure are considered crazy, as long as all the above still happens, kids are going to be smart phone users at a very young age.
I believe this will lead to them being able to feel pain when exposed to RF and ELF (becoming Electromagnetic Hyper Sensitive) , and some will even suffer from cancer, before they will have kids themselves.

Kids are heavy users
We also have to remember that most kids are heavy users, and use their smart phone all day to send more than 150 message, surf the net, use applications, listen to online music and talk to each other.

"Better Call Saul" - E05/S03 - Chuck's condition is put to the test, once again.


On episode #5, season 3 of "Better Call Saul", in the ending scene Chuck's character fail to identify a cell phone's battery that is put in his jacket's pocket. Across the net, speculations have been done (and we will most likely will have more of these) that this is just another prof that Chuck's condition is mental and not physical.

I just saw the episode. We need to remember this is just a TV series, but having said that, I see how Chuck could not feel the battery in his pocket. I am an mid level EHS person and I don't react to DC charge from batteries(some people do). What I do react to is RF from cell phones and wireless devices. But this does not mean I can identify it right a way. In addition I can sustain (and so can Chuck's character, as seen in other episodes) some exposure to RF without being dead on the spot. In some cases I can feel specific signals, but in most cases it is the accumulation of exposure that wear me down. For example when I am going out of the house to parliament committees meetings, or in other meeting that people use their smartphone around me, I can function for several hours. I don't feel great, I am not at my best performance and sometimes I can feel pain, but I can function (most of the times). I most cases I do "pay" with pain when the day is over, when the Adrenalin rush is going down and the pain killers' effect is fading. 

So, again, placing a cell phone buttery, or a working cellphone, next to me, in most case will not cause a reaction right away (but please don't try it on me, as if the phone will be transmitting in GSM or LTE I will be in a lot of pain after few minutes). 

In fact, I have a cellphone battery next to me just now.
Does that mean my EHS condition is not real?
Does that mean the Chuck's characters' condition is not real?
No!
It mean that who ever think that all EHS people react to all EMF exposures right a way, on the spot, as if we are all some kind of human EMF detector, does not understand EMF , RF, their biological effect and EHS.

Smart Bluetooth pillow - why , who ,how?

YNET , Israeli leading news site published on the  04/05/2017 a short article about a new smart pillow with Bluetooth communication that links to your smartphone which is put next to you when you sleep, in order to track your sleeping patterns and wake you up in the most "Natural" way (with led lights and music).

Maybe I can get such a device with WIFI access point and a 5G network antenna inside?
If it was not a reality It would be very funny. But it is real and it is not funny.

How do repetitively smart people think of designing such devices without even imagining the harm they can be doing to their future users?
How can people pre-order this devices with no reflection on the possible health risk?
Who in his right mind will buy such a device (and I promise you that if you will stick a WIFI access point in one of these, it will sell even better)?
Why is this even possible?

The regulators are the first to blame on this. They are the ones that set the so called safety standards and regulation that allow these devices to be approved for wide usage, and they are the ones that should( and don't) educate the public about the possible health effect of such devices and of RFR and ELF.
The regulators set the conditions in which an engineer will think to himself "Why not embed a Bluetooth transmitter 0 cm from a person brain?" and then a child go and think "why not put my smart phone under the pillow?"
This is how we come to this day when engineers puts a Bluetooth transmitter in a pillow and the public rush to order one.
