It astonishes me that there are people

in our country who are so lacking in basic intelligence as to believe that the 5G mobile phone network is responsible for spreading coronavirus infections.

I know there are people who think that being close to the masts can cause brain damage, but viruses being spread around via radio frequencies? Come back Dan Dare, all is forgiven.

I expect it from David Ikye but really disappointed by Eamonn Holmes comments.

5G uses the same radio spectrum that carried Analogue TV for 70 years. That is one of the reasons we moved to Digital TV, to make the wavelengths available for 5G. So why people think that 5G has any effect on people now than TV signals did for 70 years is laughable.

People are so gullible!

5G has definitely made things worse as idiocy can now be spread much faster via social media.

As for C19 do I need to isolate my phone now? :p)

The frequency spectrum for 5G includes the 450 MHz to 6 GHz range in the sub 6GHz range click here

625 lines TV operated in the 471-853MHz range.

Hello FE. Best of wishes from Albert Fitzwilliam Digby, Professor Jocelyn Peabody, Sir Hubert and Spry. Glad to know we are now forgiven. Dan Dare & the Mekon.

The Mekon - now there's a character that would not be out of place in Doctor Who.

Talking about Dan Dare, his crew and the formidable Mekon takes me right back to the sound of The Eagle plopping on the doormat. First thing I looked at was the fantastic cutaway drawings in the centrefold, halcyon days indeed...

The Mekon - That brings back memories of Dan Dare, Digby etc and I think his ship was the "Zero" ?
