This guy commenting on the Slashdot article (released one day earlier
- ARRL was also slow, if that matters), did some homework, and he's
pretty convinced the New Zealand school is just fear-mongering:
He links to the two real research articles from the government, and
he's not even a journalist -- just a curious person who took five
minutes to actually research the story.
ARRL links to nothing, and has some "expert" (N0AX) stating "Yeah,
I'm not sure where they'd put the antennas!"
Looks to me like ARRL got played, and is just repackaging the
school's press release as a news article, without doing their homework.
