A few days ago I got a very serious “call” for help
from Mr. Kin Hing Tong in
I have informed Mr. Tong already about the The BioInitiative Working Group (links and report), as well I sent him some of my submissions from my many power line/substation application cases.
I sent this to you FYI and if possible, if you could give Mr. Tong some more advise.
I wonder whether you know of any other EMF/EMR cases
Please forward your messages to Mr. Tong with CC to the rest of the mailing list.

The apartment buildings that shares a common wall with a power substation is occupied mainly by some retired (nonmanagement grade) civil servants who have very limited knowledge of EMFs and have no expertise to deal with big corporations and government officials. I feel ashamed as an engineer that others of my trade are setting up high voltage installations in such an unprofessional manner. I am now helping these people on a voluntary basis.
To convince these poor souls, the power company is using very professional EMF testers to convince people that they have not exceeded the ICNIRP's "limits".
I can borrow a hand-held 3-axis EMF tester from my engineer friend in

My legal friends are saying that these poor souls can only fight the power company on grounds of "reasonable" acts and owing of "duty of care" to neighbors by the energy company and the professionals who carried out such design/installation. And the power company and the professionals will always use the recognized ICNIRP guideline as shields. Legal battles are always expensive in

Dear Hans Karow:
Thank you for supplying me with info when are very busy with your other business and matters.
My name in Kin Hing TONG. Everybody call me KH when I was in
The Hong Kong Government will NOT do anything against big corporations. They will remedy something bad only when something disastrous actually happened. The power company, CLP POWER HONG KONG LIMITED that I am fighting with is partly owned by the
On one location, readings over 100~200 micro Telsa were read in a living room which is separated from a bank of 10 KV power transpformers by a wall of regular thickness. Engineers from the HongKong Government and CLP POWER still insist its safe because the limits specified by ICNIRP is over 800+ micro Telsa. The TV set in the living room is not feeling comfortable because the color is slightly distorted. They are now placing another bank of 132KV power grid switching equipments next to another living room on the ground floor, which is also only separated by a wall.
If I cannot find any "reputable" regulations to challenge the Hong Kong Government, I can now only collect data and use it to challenge the government when something bad actually happened in the future. Some 132KV cables were buried under the the sidewalk right in front of a school.
I will send the Biolinitiative report to the government and see if they will accept it as a guideline.
EMF pollution is all over
Best Regards KH Tong
P.S. please keep me informed on any new development on fights against EMF pollution.
Dear Hans Karow
got your email address and excerpts of your communication with ICNIRP from an
My understanding is that the 1998 ICNIRP EMF exposure guidelines is for "LIMITING" exposure for short or not so long durations.
Is there any new guidelines for PROLONGED (IN TERMS OF YEARS) exposure to EMFs issued by national or international agencies.
I am living in
The depth of the cable is about 2 to 2.5 metre below ground level. (At some location is only 1.5 M). the cable is only one meter from the front door of my apartment.
The apartment building shares a common wall with the adjacent power substation, The living quarters of the apartments on the ground floor is separated from 10KV and 132KV equipments by a 200~300mm wall. The high voltage equipments are standing right next to this common wall.
Please tell me where I can find codes, guidelines, or advice to argue against the power company on the improper installation of these equipments.
