Just curious how much the radiation is around the TV tower.

The price of condo behind the tower keeps going up. Does anyone dare to buy them?

Radiation? As in electromagnetic radiation?

The electromagnetic waves this tower will broadcast cannot possibly harm humans. You're bombarded with radiation all the time from multiple sources but it isn't powerful enough to harm you.

Not radio waves at least. You're safe, and those condo-owners are safe.

I didn't think anyone was still afraid of the airwaves.

thanks Toddhubert, as always bringing photos.

I think people are waiting for external ribbing to reach the top and then get excited again.

Excellent job taipei walker!!!

The tower really looks more like the end product now, haven't seen a new update photos for weeks and now the external ribbing is only maximum of 2-3 floors left to go?

What is the percentage of usable floor area of the Guangzhou TV ?
If it's over 50 % it's mean we can call it a "building" according to CTBUH
