Frequent Questions » Radio Safety
Do Araneo links emit dangerous radiation?
Araneo's unlicensed radios typically broadcast at 60mW, or about one tenth of the power of a cellular phone. By using powerful antennas we are able to concentrate this energy directly towards other access nodes. Standing in front of an Araneo link is perfectly safe, but will interrupt service!
Araneo's licensed radios can emit higher power levels, and it is not safe to stand directly in front of the dish.
