Engelse radaroperator: ''Wij hebben recht op een fatsoenlijk antwoord''

Case Study: 'Largs Hum' Made Me So Ill I Left Town
Sep 8 2008

GEORGIE Hyslop claims her life was ruined by what locals call the ''Largs Hum'' - an unexplained low frequency noise.

The 66-year-old former RAF radar operator says her problems started after she had a metal implant fitted to repair her back after a skiing accident.

And she fears the implant turned her into a human aerial - picking up electricity waves when she is near a mobile phone mast, pylon or military radar.

After moving to Largs in 2000 following the death of her husband Roy, Georgie started to feel unwell. She experienced headaches, nose bleeds, loss of feeling in her arms, chest pains and an abnormal heart rhythm.

Her symptoms got worse after a police Tetra mast was fitted nearby. And a constant, low-frequency hum made it impossible for her to sleep.

She contacted Transco,

Scottish Power, the European Environment Agency, the World Health Organisation, the National Radiological Protection Board and the British Geological Survey in a bid to find answers to her health problems.

She also spoke to officials at Faslane naval base and the Hunterston nuclear power plant but drew a blank.

Eventually Georgie moved to Rothbury, in Northumberland, to escape the symptoms.

Now, she is writing a book about her 14,000-mile journey across the UK looking for somewhere to live away from the worst electromagnetic fields.

Georgie says: ''I can't even use a telephone without feeling ill now. If I pick up a mobile or cordless phone, I get burns on my face from it. And if I touched a microwave or attempted to eat food from one, that would also make me ill.

''As an RAF radar operator, I think I was exposed to such a large volume of radio waves that my body can't cope with any amount now.

''I should have been born hundreds of years ago as I'm allergic to modern life.

''I'm Scots born and bred but life in Largs made me ill.

''I still get affected by electromagnetic waves in my new home but if I avoid mobile phones and power lines, I can keep better.

''But I don't think I'll ever feel 100 per cent again.

''I've had letters from people all over the world who also suffer from sensitivity to electromagnetic fields.

''I just don't want them to devastate other people's lives too. We deserve answers.''
