5G Threat Truly Negligible

When you are on your own property, and your solar panels are far enough away to satisfy your concerns about EMR, then 5G poses a truly negligible threat.

The Femto cell for use in homes and businesses has a range of only a few tens of meters.
Likewise the pico cell, again tens of meters.

Micro and Metro cells are for urban areas, and they only reach a few hundred meters.

Radio waves in the upper part of the 5G band (the part that can provide high data speeds) are strongly attenuated by gases in the atmosphere, including water vapor. Except in extreme desert it is nearly impossible to use 5G frequencies over distances of 1000 meters.

A lot of people get their knickers in a twist (I'm looking at the shill "particle physicist" not-lady) because the power levels of 5G are higher. But this is precisely because they are absorbed so strongly.

In a densely populated urban area, there might be some basis for concern about exposure to these transmitters. In the country, not so much. Don't buy one and there is essentially nothing to worry about on your own land.
