DECT phones base station emits RF
Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) all the time (24X7) that they are plugged in to
the electricity. Next to the DECT base station the EMR levels are
very high (several watts per square meter), and they drop as you move away from
it. So the worst thing to do is to put it next to where you sleep or stay. Over the last few years
I meet several people that used to put the DECT base station near their bedside
or on the desk in their work station.
phone head set can work up to 300 meters from their base station and the base
station can support several extensions. DECT phones base station radiate with their max possible output
power all the time since they don't have a smart power management and since the
base station doesn't know how far its extensions are at.
Today you can find a DECT phone in every house
since you don't have to be an electronic engineer to operate a DECT phone, so
everyone use them and they can be found at almost every home. People buy it in
the store, bring it home, connect it to the power line and to the phone line
and it immediately start to work and to emit EMR. When you have a DECT phone in
your house you have an RF EMR source working all the time in your house. In
addition to the base station RF EMR is emitted also from the headset when in
use (talking) just like any other cordless phone. You won't find a warning label on the phone,
package or in the manual. In some phones you will find a small warning that you
should not get to close to the base station, but that is all.
DECT phones give you very good "reception",
grate sound quality and the fallibility of a cordless phone, but does it worth
all the radiation it emits in the middle
of your home?
- When possible use a corded phone.
- If you need a cordless phone get one that it's base station does
not emit radiation all the time.
- If you already have a DECT phone try moving its base station to
the far corner of the house, where no one will be directly exposed to the
radiation it emits.
- In addition every cordless phone handset also emits RF EMR, similar
to those that a mobile phone emits. So please try to limit the time you spend
on the cordless phone.
DECT phone video:
I hope that people who watch this video will
move their DECT phone base station away as possible and will use them as least
as possible, maybe even unplug them.
In this clip you can see that electromagnetic
radiation is being emitted from DECT cordless phones' base station even when
the phone is in standby mode. People buy these phones and put them right next
to their bed or couch unknowingly exposing themselves to electromagnetic
radiation. The EMR is being emitted from the DECT phones' base stations 24
hours a day 7 days a week. You will find no warning about this issue on the
package of the DECT phone when you buy it
