Science – Introduction

There has been a considerable amount of research into the effects of radio frequency emissions, including the frequencies used by TETRA, over a number of years. The balance of scientific evidence does not demonstrate any link between radio frequency emissions at levels below the safety standards and adverse effects on health. In this science section you can:

  • look at what has happened so far in terms of reports, statements and expert reviews about RF in general and TETRA in particular (click on “The Story So Far” below)
  • find out who the recognised experts are and why, and look at what they have to say (click on “Who are the experts and what do they say?” below)
  • get information about the research studies into TETRA that have been completed and those that are in progress (click on “Research Studies on TETRA” below).

On our ‘Useful links’ page (click here) we list a number of other web sites from which you can obtain further information.

You might, for example, like to visit the Sense About Science website. This is an independent charitable trust that responds to the misrepresentation of science and scientific evidence on issues that matter to society, from scares about plastic bottles, fluoride and the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine to controversies about genetic modification, stem cell research and radiation. The trust works with scientists and civic groups to promote evidence and scientific reasoning in public discussion.
