"An antenna way up in the air will have no effect on your daughters health unless you are radiating many kilowatts. "

That's true, but we've also seen people running 800 watts to attic installed antennas on this site.

The engineer at Medtronics was telling me in great detail about the RF filtering and spike protection circuits where the lead enters the titanium case. He said its 'almost' impossible for Rf to get in and in worst case it will stop the pacing pulse while rf is applied. 'virtually' no risk of reprogramming the pace rythem and she is not pacing dependent.
He was saying that their biggest concern is the CB'r with the illegal 'kicker' (that they bought on ebay) that is only inches away from the antenna.
