Though numerous debates have broken out over their possible health risks, no hard data has proved that there are adverse effects to locating one on your property. Keeping a phone mast on your property may come with a few benefits, both to you and nearby cell phone subscribers. A mast is a freestanding structure which supports antennas at a height where they can transmit and receive radio waves .

ADVANTAGES

RAINFALL PATTERNS

Signals from mobile phone masts have been used in many studies to measure rainfall patterns. Studies done in the Middle East and Europe have shown that rainfall patterns are more accurately measured using cell phone signals than by using current meteorological methods. The basis of the study is that the electromagnetic fields produced by the masts are considerably weakened by certain types of weather, particularly rain. The amount of reduction in the signal indicated the amount of rainfall that had occurred. When compared with the more traditional methods all readings closely resembled each other, with the mast technique being most accurate.
