NIMBYs and Politicians Are Behind Your Bad Cellphone Reception
Bernal supervisor David Campos managed to block the antennas despite federal regulations saying he couldn't:
"Under federal law, SF's Board of Supervisors cannot deny a permit for wireless antennas on the basis of scientifically unproven health risks. The antennas themselves are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission, so if a Supervisor wants to kill the antennas, he needs to come up with a different reason. Ergo, barring the antennas because the tower's control station is covered with graffiti."
The anti-antenna residents have insisted that the project complete an environmental impact report.
