Engadget links to a story about WiMax transmitters in Sweden:
According to Sweden’s SVT, which reported on the incident, the local hospital emergency room was flooded with calls regarding various symptoms such as headaches, difficulty breathing, blurry vision and even two cases of heart arrhythmia. All of this was mere hours after the base station was activated, and the symptoms went away once the station was deactivated, or if the sufferer moved away from that radio tower of death.
It sounds quite bad, but will it mean an end to the technology or is it merely a blip?

That’s really very bizarre.
I don’t think WiMax antennas ahve the same emissions-monitoring mechanisms in place as network operators employ for mobile phone masts.
