We just had a high speed internet satellite installed. The system/computer is in located in our bedroom. The system stays on at all time. My concern is this: Could radio active waves be emitted through the system/computer and become a health threat in the long term? Also, the satellite is installed on a 6ft pole on the exterior wall of my child's bedroom. Could that close proximity of radio waves to my chid's room become a health threat in the long term?

I have worked in the communications field for many years and have installed numerous types of radio transmitting equip. The Sat dishs used for uplinking data for your computer connection employ a low power transmitter that is located on the feed in front of the dish. The only possible area where "RF radiation" might even be a consideration is in front of the dish. In the area behind the dish RF levels are so small that they pose little or no threat even right behind the dish. In the installation you also have the building structure to further eliminate any residual RF. (Keep in mind that the dish must be located oiutside in clear view of the satellite). As theother gentleman indicated I would be much more woried about the content that your children can find on the internet.
