Title: MoD bands Wind turbines on more than one occation

The words radiation and health risk seem to have been removed from this article:
Yes Wind Turbines interfere with Radar for considerable distance around the wind turbine:
And they`ve been know not to comply to BSI Standards and EMC for a long time.
Yet nothing was done...... Whether the MoD is going to get all wind turbines band?

This should have serious implication on the law that being health and safety with these devices being missrepresented.. With goverment departments push them as Green.
With the greenes pushing us all along..

Radar equipment emits non ionising radiation from the aerial/emitter, I doubt sincerely that wind turbines are capable of producing similar types of radiation, more likely they will cause some form of low level electrical interference seen as noise; doppler shift from the rotating blades and other unwanted signal/noise anomalies that degrade the operators view of our airspace.

If you want a suggestion as to where windfarms should be sited visit the North Wales coast and see the array of turbines located offshore.  As they represent a NO-GO zone the environmental impact has certainly been beneficial on marine life for all the Greenies out there.  In ten years when all the much talked about North Sea oil and gas fields are played out perhaps all the defunct platforms would make a suitable platform for further wind farm locations.

The MoD and UK airports have perfectly good rationale for objecting to the siting of some wind Farms, in the interests of National Security and the travelling Public's safety.

If EMC and BSI requirements have not been met then there is clearly an opportunity to improve the design features of wind powered generating sets, the question on eveyones lips from a legal perspective is who is going to enforce the Standard?
