The Tall Tower Report
This report brings fourth new observations in NO2 maps taken by NASA's OMI satellite. It shows regions of NO2 in the direct vicinity of broadcast transmitters. It leads the reader to the conclusion that we need more research on this topic.
The 3 Towers of NO2
While going through NASA’s satellite images taken of NO2 in the California area, I was struck by an odd site. Most of the NO2 comes from the city and is most likely to be from CO2 from car emission, but I happened to notice a strange NO2 reading between San Francisco and Sacramento. It appeared to be a perfectly round spot of NO2? I wondered if it could be an actual NO2 signature from a broadcast tower. I realized that it would have to be away from the city to produce such a round signature. Well it turns out that it isn’t one, but three broadcast towers all in little Walnut Grove California with a total of 29.66MW!! The tallest of which is the KXTV/KOVR Tower at 2,049ft and is the 4th tallest guyed mast in the world. The most ironic thing about this tower is that it is used to research ozone levels at different heights, but as you can see from their NO2 production their readings might be off a little. Total ERP 2.7MW The second tallest is the Channel 40 Tower standing at 2000ft and is home to KTXL and KVIE with a total ERP of 6.8MW Last but not the least by far is the powerful Hearst-Argyle Tower at 2000ft. Home to KCRA, KMAX, KQCA, and KSPX for a whopping total ERP of 20.1MW!! If they have been testing around the Vatican radio tower for leukemia cases they might want to stop in little Walnut here. I’m not going to write much about the history on these towers, but am including historical information with this report. If nearly 30MW ERP can make a spot of NO2 visible from the OMI satellite, then I think the FCC has a lot of work ahead of them. The studies collected in this report detailing HAARP experiments use 47MW in exploring the effects of radio frequencies in ionosphere heating. They show an increase of ion outflow in the cusp region and there is twice the amount of ion outflow that scientists can account for with current solar wind models. Where are all the extra ions coming from? Well I think this spot of NO2 points right to little Walnut California as a clue. And if this is true then we might be able to shut off global warming with the flick of a switch.
ERP too high in FM broadcasting zone 1
One thing of interesting note is NASA’s OMI satellite NO2 maps of the United States seems to look an awful lot like the FM broadcasting zones.In the United States, the maximum ERP for FM broadcasting is usually 100,000 watts (FM Zone II) or 50,000 watts (the more densely populated FM Zones I/I-A), though exact restrictions vary depending on the class of license. Some stations have been grandfathered in or, very infrequently, been given special dispensation, and can exceed normal restrictions.
It appears as though the ERP of 50kw is too high
for FM in Zone 1.
If there is a possibility that this may be NO2 produced from FM broadcast transmitters we might just want to take more observations and focus our OMI satellite on broadcast transmitters and have a better look around.
Just a suggestion.
