Et Cetera ...

"What do you suppose that does to church sound systems?"

The power lines will do nothing, provided the sound system is installed properly. I am not saying there is no electrical field, just that the field can be dealt with.

Comparing what happens when you drive your car past a HV line is ridiculous. First problem being the auto mfg put the cheapest radio in. Second, you are riding on "rubber" (no ground). And third you are using a non-resonant poorly placed receiving antenna (antenna placement is for looks, not function). Remember the windshield antenna GM used years ago, don't see that anymore do you?

The author and Wildthing are mistaken; the "health concerns" about high-voltage power lines are in fact well known ... and THEY'RE AREN'T ANY! 35 years of studies by reputable organizations like the World Health Organization have FAILED to come up with any definitive link between electromagnetic fields and human health. The fears that persist all trace back to one study conducted in 1979 that has since been widely discredited as flawed.

Relax, people.
