are all wireless products such as cell phones or ummm.... home phones and everything else that doesn't use IR, use pulsed magnetic wave, or supersonic sound? I'm making a wireless power device that pulses magnetic fields, is this dangerous to my health? I don't want to be a mutant or be sterile or anything.

Depends on what you build :-) Give a few more details.
Of course radiowaves can be a healthrisk, take Wireless LAN for example. 2,4 GHz = Microwaves!
Now if you'dd build something that emmits 600 Watts, that would keep you nice and warm, maybee crisp!

Microwave ovens work at 2.45GHz, but most mobile phone networks appear to run at 0.9GHz, 1.8GHz, 3.5GHz and 5.8GHz, frequencies which do not couple with water molecules to cause heating. (It is very hard to find proper data - as soon as the words "microwave" and "mobile phone" go into google together, you are swamped by quack scare sites)
Microwaves don't emit much though: since the wavelength is about 3-4 inches, those little holes on the front are too small for them to pass through!
Tell me about it: Here is a study done in 2004, by means of a (get this) questionnaire LOL

On a seperate, but related note, is there a way to get HV with a small device. Lets say I use 10kv going through a coil with manymanymany turns, and with electricvity pulsing through at 2 Mhz the resistance will be pretty high (it's ac). So a hv at low amps will do better than a low voltage at high amps because of less electricity wasted, plus it should create a higher power field.

oh any I'm looking for something like 10 or 20 mA, something around that range. Also, using normal magnet wire , will the insulation break down at such a voltage?

thanks everyone, so it's safe? Just to make sure i'll give more details. It'll be running around 2Mhz (is that safe for the water molecule thingamdousey?) and the magnetic power is... well I don't know but I doubt it's strong enough to effect anything iron about 1 or 2 feet away, if that.
assuming its not powerful enough to interfere with radio transmissions and brings the FCC to your door, it should be fine.

thanks, and welcome back! Inless you just fou8nd a computer during vacation, if so have fun
im back. they had computers there, but it was 20 cents a minute.
