Testimony

The following is great suggestion from an attorney friend who is very experienced in these matters:

For every comment one makes in a Government meeting:


Start: I attest and affirm that the following statements are true, accurate, and within my personal knowledge.

[300 or so words of testimony go here]

End: I have expressed no matter of mere concern but solely matters of substance, fact and law.


Doing so makes the presentation an ACTUAL testimony, such that the statements are considered by law to be TRUE unless someone else under oath proves otherwise.

Be sure to include the following comments that were entered into the City of Sonoma Public record on 9/12/19, by a Professional RF Engineer hired by many cities to advise them (Monterey, Sonoma and Napa come to mind):

“To get around the capacity issue — it’s because so many people are [wirelessly] streaming video and other services like that, they [Verizon] have to have multiple sources for this. That’s why we have the smaller cells because each [small] cell is capable of almost putting out the same energy as one macro cell.”

Another commissioner asked the question “Is the higher frequency 4G always deployed by small cell or is it deployed by typical macro tower?”

“Typically the older Macro cells are being reconfigured to add the new spectrum and are being filled in with by technology . . . one of the things the industry is doing is beefing up 4G . . . I have reviewed, my staff has probably reviewed several hundred of these small cells the last year, year and a half, and they are all 4G equivalent. The radios that they are using are the exact same radios that are up on the macro towers. It’s not a different technology . . . the same boxes as on macro towers. I see them all the time.”
