In the USA there is ongoing debate concerning the question of reducing the quality of weather forecasting for the deployment of communication networks of the fifth generation (5G). Experts believe that the auctioning of frequency spectrum for 5G-networks are no appropriate studies that would confirm the safety of the use of certain frequencies. Despite this, the auctioning of frequency bands to mobile operators continues.
Previously, experts had warned that the interference caused by 5G networks in the band of 24 GHz, will significantly reduce the accuracy of weather forecasts. The fact that prediction of certain weather events is a measure of the amount of radiation emitted by water vapor. Such radiation is recorded in the spectrum at 23.8 GHz. The problem is that communication networks operating at 24 GHz will create a serious interference that will not allow you to measure emission of steam just as it happens currently.
Earlier it was reported that specialists of the NOAA (National oceanic and atmospheric administration) and NASA (National Aeronautics and space administration) came to the conclusion that established by the Federal communications Commission (FCC) limit out-of-band radiation, equal to -20 dB, is too high and could result in the loss of up to 77% in passive microwave data samples. Experts believe that the FCC should reduce the limit on out-of-band emissions to the level of -50 dB.
It’s hard to say what the outcome of the conflict the warring parties. Probably, the us administration is ready to make some risks in order to expand the territory of the country 5G network in the shortest line.
