TETRA and You: a quick summary of Airwave, the masts and the costs
The government, government scientists and [this industry] will be responsible for more civilian deaths in peacetime than all the terrorist organisations put together.

Does TETRA affect you? There are two reasons you might need to know:
The Airwave project
We really do want our police and emergency services to be able to communicate securely and efficiently. That is not at issue at all. But what is this Airwave contract, how did it come about, and why is it causing so much trouble?
Living with masts
Perhaps it is the unsightlines of masts that you dont like? Or maybe when you have read our health pages you think they may present sufficient risk that they should not be allowed just anywhere.
So what can you do if a TETRA mast is near where you work, live or go to school?
What will it cost?
Perhaps you feel reassured that sites like this are scaremongering, but you object to public money being spent on Government projects that cost too much, or dont work as they should?
TETRA also interferes with other electronic systems, including medical equipment, police equipment, your television, and possibly your car. Fixing the problem is nothing to do with mmO2, so it is at your own expense to avoid problems caused by TETRA.
