Will 5G Destroy Boise?

Please watch this short video and read the full message below from Andrew Rostenberg.

We need you!  Will you answer the call to protect your home, your family, your neighborhood, and your city?


The City of Boise is gutting its wireless code making it really easy for Big Telecom to put their towers in front of your home. Towers will be every 500 feet in your area unless you tell them NO, not in my neighborhood!  This microwave radiation can cause: dementia, insomnia, infertility, headaches, fatigue, dysesthesia,(MS symptoms) concentration/attention dysfunction, memory changes, dizziness, irritability, loss of appetite/body weight, restlessness/anxiety, nausea, skin burning/tingling/dermographism and disrupts the normal rhythm of the heart.

If other cities across the country have kept 5G wireless antennas out of neighborhoods, like Eagle, Idaho, then we can too. We must. The horrific future damage that will occur because of these towers will be shocking. This technology will be devastating for your health, your property values and your privacy. It must be stopped and ONLY YOU can do it by joining us in our fight against 5G in Boise.


  1. Share your concern and dissatisfaction with this plan to permanently alter our city for the worse.
  2. Can you get 5- 10 people you know to step up and testify?
  3. This is our big chance to make a change. I am attaching the letter our attorney sent to the City. We are demanding the City of Boise stop the roll out of 5G immediately. We are then demanding that the City update their Wireless Communication Facilities Ordinance with the provisions that protect our health, property and privacy.


  1. We are asking the city to amend the ordinance to:
  2. Prohibit any towers in all residential and school districts
  3. Require all Tower owners to provide $10 million aggregate and $1,000,000 per occurrence Liability Insurance with no EXCLUSIONS FOR HEALTH effects.
  4. NEEDS TEST. Require all applicants to provide a needs test by using an independent 3rd party using meters to determine if there is a gap in coverage.
  5. Cap on Power. Cell phones only need .02 watts of power.
  6. Currently, many towers are putting out 60 watts of power.
  7. Put a moratorium on all new builds until the FCC shows real safety studies.
  8. Even better let’s put in fiber optic cable like Mt. Home Idaho, and Ammon, Idaho. Safe and secure and blazing speeds. 5G is slower than DSL!!


  1. Sign up yourself and your friends/family to speak for 3 minutes at the upcoming Boise Planning and Zoning Board Meeting Monday October 4th at 6PM. We need EVERYONE willing to speak to sign up at this link:
