In the words of Yogi Berra, “Is this Déjà Vu all over again?” The people of CA secured a veto of an earlier version of SB.556/AB.537/SB.678 back in 2017 — SB.649 California’s Misguided Streamline so-called “small” Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (sWTFs) Bill. This is what we learned back in 2017-2018:
From the League of California Cities:
While over 300 cities opposed SB.649 (Hueso), the Governor vetoed the bill stating: “I believe that the interest which localities have in managing rights of way requires a more balanced solution than the one achieved in this bill.”
So, Why Are Our CA Legislators Wasting Everyone’s Time and the Taxpayer’s Money to Attempt This Same Corrupt Industry Heist All Over Again? . . . Follow the $$$ Money $$$!
The best plan for localities is BIG DATA via Fiber Optics & only calls/texts via Wireless because . . .
Wired Broadband (via FTTP) is faster, more reliable, more secure and more affordable than Wireless Broadband.

sWTFs = 4G/5G so-called “small” Wireless Telecommunications Facilities
sWTFs are hazardous — perhaps small in dimension, but LARGE IN POWER OUTPUT.
Versus What is Needed for Telecommunications Service (calls/texts)
|– 5 dBm||100,000,000 times higher|
|-25 dBm||1,000,000 times higher|
|-45 dBm||10,000 times higher|
|-65 dBm||100 times higher|
|-85 dBm||“5-Bars” Telecommunications Service|
Problems With So-Called “small” Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (sWTFs)
sWTFs are falsely branded. They are more than 25 million times more powerful than properly placed Macro Cell Towers, once you consider the metric that matters — the intensities of the toxic pollutant (RF/MW radiation) that reaches second- and third-story bedrooms:

Sacramento, CA: sWTF 60 feet from home, transmitted -10 dBm (58,000 µW/m²) 24/7 into the bedroom above the garage and both children were diagnosed with microwave radiation sickness — in three weeks | San Francisco, CA: sWTF 15 feet from home, where woman received a brain tumor diagnosis — in three months | Santa Rosa, CA: 30 feet from home → home sold at 23% discount ($125,000+ loss in property value) — immediately
What Really Matters: Excessive Effective Radiated Power (ERP)
That Results in Excessive RF Microwave Radiation Intensities in 2nd-Story+ Bedrooms
Vertical Distance Off Ground
Horizontal Distance Away
Power in bedroom (2nd-story+)
|sWTF “small” cell||35 feet||60 feet||50,000 avg. radiation units|
|Macro cell||200 feet||2,500 feet||0.002 avg. radiation units|
Conclusion: 50,000 µW/m² from a so-called “small” cell is 25 million times more powerful than 0.002 µW/m² (-85 dBm) from a Macro cell —
Note: -85 dBm is a signal strength which provides 5 Bars of telecommunications service on a cell phone (source: link to The Truth About 4G/5G in Sacramento )
Wire California™ is a call to action and a citizen journalist and advocacy organization. We work to preserve local control over Wired Broadband and Wireless Telecommunications infrastructure. Local communities must retain the freedom to integrate the best Broadband options for their residents. We have successfully worked at the Federal, State and Local levels to tame the unnecessarily dense deployment of 4G/5G so-called “small” Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (sWTFs) in residential neighborhoods. See examples of our work here, here and here.
This is where California is headed: 24/7 government surveillance enabled by too many antennas, cameras, sensors and too much Electromagnetic Power through-the-air from sWTFS (see the video below from another country). The Triple Threat 6-7-8 (2021 CA Bills SB.556, AB.537 and SB.378) is the foundation for this one-size-fits-all disaster. Instead of dangerous Wireless Broadband, Californians need the long-promised, but largely undelivered solution: Fiber Optics to the Premises (FTTP). For those that value freedom, we must defeat or significantly amend these dangerous and corrupt CA State bills.
June 2, 2021 In an effort to provide local governments adequate time to prepare for in-person public meetings while remaining in compliance with the Brown Act, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that Executive Order N-29-20 will remain in effect after the June 15 reopening plan. The announcement came in response to a request by a local …
