WiFi Radiation – Made Visible To The Human Eye

Posted by Lloyd Burrell on July 24, 2013 under WiFi and health | 24 Comments to Read

WiFi radiation is silently, surreptitiously, taking over our world.

Most of us don’t think about it because we can’t feel it.

And we don’t think about it because we can’t see it.

But what if you could see it?

Artist, Nickolay Lamm of, decided to make this possible, virtually.

Working with M. Browning Vogel, Ph.D., an astrobiologist and former employee at NASA Ames,  Lamm used the information to create images depicting the size, shape, and color of Wi-Fi signals as if they were they visible to the human eye.

Here are Nickolay’s images with Dr Vokels commentary:

WiFi Radiation – New Yorks Central Park

WiFi Radiation Central Park, New York CityDr Vogel:Wifi occupies the radio frequency band of the electromagnetic spectrum between actual radio waves and microwaves (used to listen to the game, and cook your dinner, respectively). This frequency band means that wifi boxes and computers can send and receive data as electromagnetic wave that have a 3 to 5 inch distance distance between each pulse of the wave. The wifi pulses are shown here as multicolored spheres radiating out from the source, near the right of the image. Wifi transmitters are basically an antenna equipped with a transmission protocol that splits the frequency band into several segments, referred to as channels. Data can be transmitted over each channel or in order to send and receive greater quantities of data at faster rates. Although color represents its own unique, visible segment of the electromagnetic spectrum, we use red, orange, yellow and other colors to show the invisible wifi channels that make up the overall wifi signal. Wifi fields are usually spherical (like the one here) or ellipsoidal and extend about 20-30 meters, assuming a typical off the shelf wifi box.”

WiFi Radiation Central Park, New York CityDr Vogel: “Wifi is an energy field that is transmitted as waves. The waves have a certain height, distance between them and travel at a certain speed. The distance between wifi waves is shorter than that of radio waves and longer than that of microwaves, giving wifi a unique transmission band that can’t be interrupted by other signals. Wifi waves are about 3 to 5 inches from crest to crest. The crests of waves is translated to a 1 by a computer, and the the troughs equal a 0. Chains of 1s and 0s that can be translated into the letters, numbers and codes that make up websites, email and other internet content. Typical wifi waves decrease in amplitude as they travel further from the source which is why the waves are larger to the right and smaller to the left, assuming the source is somewhere near the right of the image. This image shows an idealized wifi data transmitted over a band that is divided into different sub-channels, which are shown in red, yellow, green and other colors.”

WiFi Radiation – Washington DC

WiFi Radiation Washington DCDr Vogel: “Wifi routers affixed to buildings, lamp posts and other object create a circular data field around them. These antenna have an omnidirectional signal that extends equally in all directions, shown as the circular bands. Wifi broadcasts at a frequency between radio and microwaves, meaning that the waves or pulses are about six inches apart, as shown by the colored, circular bands.”

EMFs in washingtonDr Vogel: “Wifi waves travel through space as rapid, data encoded pulses or waves. A freeze frame of these pulses would show that the pulses are about 6 inches apart (as shown by the lightly colored bands traveling through space in this image). Wifi routers are basically antenna that can send data over multiple frequencies all at the same time. These multiple frequencies are shown as blue, green, yellow, and red colors that pervade the space around the mall. The data from these multiple frequencies swirls around in space as shown here, but can be translated using a common tag system understood by wireless devices.”


WiFi radiation at the Needle in Washington DCDr Vogel:Wifi routers or antenna can be attached to trees, buildings, lamp posts and other structures. A typical outdoor router can project its signal 300 feet or more from its location. Objects such as trees can obstruct the signal such that it has to be augmented by multiple wifi routers placed in different positions. Multiple routers can create a field that extends all the way across Washington DC’s National Mall as shown here.”

Protect Yourself From WiFi Radiation

WiFi routers and modems emit pulsed microwave radiation just like cell phones. This technology is not safe. Click here for my WiFi protection tips.

    Hi Lloyd.
    I am hyperelectrosensitive and have been since I grew up in a neighbourhood where there was an antenna on top of a commercial dairy, approx. 500′ from our home. At 17, I reacted with achy swollen joints, flushed all over and developed kidney infection when working with and exposed for 8 hours at a time to microwave ovens. I can see the frequencies, especially after a cell phone tower was placed 1000′ from our home.

    These images are lovely, and a good start…but I think if we could see all the RFR in our environments, we’d see much, much more than this….the radiation would appear much more dense than in these images, no areas left untouched, much more in the way if interference patterns and the “hot spots” they create….we’d also see the wifi bouncing off the White House, for example, because it’s pretty thoroughly shielded, as are some other government and military facilities

  • Dorothy Shostak said,

    For example: take the top image, which indicates the wifi radiation from 1 source: in any city environment, you’d have to multiply this image enormously to account for the numerous sources emitting wifi in various locations

  • lee said,

    Very scary details of the world we live in. Where can a person move to avoid this radiation? Would a farmhouse on 5 or 10 acres be safe? How far away from a city should you be living? Thank you for the truth!

  • Wilmaliz said,

    Thank you so much for sharing these pictures! I live in the USA I have EHS and this will help others to get an understanding.

    Hello Lloyd, I have read in the past that microwaves can be reflected so now, what the electro-magnetic sensitive people need is a well designed reflector perhaps with a variable parabolic dish that can catch the radiation impinging upon them and send it back to the sender with LOVE, of course. Sort of like a return receipt requested in the postal mail but sent back with LOVE whether the return was requested or not. If a good design engineer could give a reasonable description, perhaps people could make their own; perhaps even start a cottage industry to help protect their family, friends and neighbors. Sort of leveling the playing field, so to speak, with regards to the original infringers, and, in this case it is done with much LOVE, which I think was missing on the in-bound trip.
    On a slight variation of this theme, I ran a little experiment on determining the source of radiation experienced by me in the form of high frequency sounds/feeling in my head particularly and at different times a heating of my body upon awakening from sleep. due to varying levels of intensity. I wanted to make sure that the household electric circuits were not causing it, so I turned off the three main breakers on the power pole that brings power in to my home and outer buildings. When I did, I noticed no difference in the high frequency sound/feelings and therefore concluded that this radiation is coming in from an external source, perhaps from the cell tower that is very close to 300 meters or less from my home but somewhat lower than my home which places its antennae closer to my level unfortunately.
    Something to think about and thanks, Lloyd, for helping to keep us informed.

    Some living organisms on the planet have a visible physical reaction to pulsed emf as shown here by Dr. John Nash Ott

    This is a short clip from the DVD “Exploring the Spectrum” by Dr. John Nash Ott. The video deals with the biological effects of natural and artificial light frequencies, and other electromagnetic frequencies. The aphids appear to dance in a manner synchronized to the passage of a radar beam of 14 miles distance, as determined by Dr. Ott. There are a few other “Dancing Aphid” videos on YouTube which show a similar phenomenon, but none appear aware of this possible explanation.

    In Lak’ech…

  • Burkey said,

    Great visual of electrosmog.

    Same thing as CAT scans: they pass through the body and capture an exact image and so you know they’re doing something to your body, interacting some way. These invisible waves also interact, but most people don’t feel it consciously, if at all.

  • Burkey said,

    Guess what? I think you’re onto something.
    The rfr WOULD look worse than it does in these images.

    I would bet you are right about that.
    Sure makes me wonder.

  • jayasiman raghavan said,

    Thank you Mr Lloyd Burrell, I assume there will be more to come in future and very sure we all will be able to see it in the sky’s and the various colors it produces, There will be much much more worst times ahead in the future, Since telecommunication is the second biggest money spinner in the world next to oil and gas,there will be no easy way to stop them, if only knowledge came with wisdom, Humans will see the right path, but if humans only use knowledge without wisdom,we will destroy the world ,we destroy the world because we were smart.

  • Barbara Lake said,

    Hi Lloyd,
    I am electrosensitive and I actually do see microwave frequencies.

  • Steve H said,

    So Barbara Lake, What does it look like. Are the photos above showing more or less than you see.
    I only feel them and even then I need a few minutes to be aware of WIFI energy being emmited at a 2m distance.

  • Dorothy Shostak said,

    Barbara, What do they look like to you? Similar to the pictures above? I, too, am electrosensitive, and perceive them, but not so much with my eyes, rather with my skin and ears…..

  • Barbara Lake said,

    I wish I could draw them here and show you but I will try to describe them.

  • Lloyd said,

    Thank you for sharing your story Barbara – because its quite a long story I’ve put it on its own page, see

  • Diane P said,

    Good morning
    Thank you for the colors you give to the waves, it’s exacly how I see it. May be I can use your pattern to explain in court how it is around me since June 2006.
    I was working in a calling center and I got the lightning in my headset. Since than I have a severe problem with WAVEsssss all of them I can feel, the pain I go trough in a day.
    I can not stand a cell phone next to me, wifi, portable in the house had to be removed, fluorescents hurt me also. Imagine the only grocery store I can stand is Costco because the lightning is gaz except around fridge & freezer I know what I need and where it is. I can’t go in a mall it’s good because I save money in a way but the waves in their are unbeleavable.
    I can drive around town but on the highway due to all the electric transformer in Quebec I’m not driving and when I see them I cover myself with an alluminum blanquet. I have black spots (bruses) on my left side body, every time their is a storm coming.
    I feel theses WAVES since that accident but they are their for EVERYONE.
    They should also show what will be the increase in sickness of all kind with all these WAVES going around…
    Don’t talk on the phone when it’s lightning, I know now!

    Hi Diane
    The images don’t belong to me you need to contact Nickolay Lamm at

    Hi Lloyd, what do you think Pong that supose to be protect EMFs from iPhone.

    Thank you.

  • Lloyd said,

    Hi Julie
    Pong cases do offer some protection, see

  • ela divine said,

    hello lloyd, thank you for the info. a cellular company has recently built a cell tower within a 1/3 of a mile, in the country. this body is beyond sensitive. i “hear” , sense, the waves. it is said the tower is for emergency and law enforcement, my sense it is for something greater than that. i cough intensely, violently at times. have had three visits to the emergency room for instant high blood pressure, stroke like symptoms, numbing of face cheeks, inability to speak-mouth does not function- all with no causes. (mri, mra, catscan, blood work). I can not sleep in my home, because of constant sound and sense of waves on my brain, body and bones. after sleeping here, i have headaches, my brain can not function, loss of memory. i have been sleeping at a friend’s camper and even then the emf at her house is intense to this body. i find very few places where the microwave radiation is low. an emf technician said this sensitivity would eliminate his equipment for how this body can differentiate frequencies.
    my life is in chaos, driving to sleep, driving back to the house, for laundry, shower, food, etc. do you know anyway i can find legal action, for i am going to have to sell my home of 25 years and leave my beautiful geodesic home in the mountains with an amazing view and spring water?
    thank you. ela divne

  • Lloyd Burrell said,

    Hi Ela
    Andrew Campanelli is a lawyer who specializes in cell tower disputes….I’ve no first hand dealings with him on this issue….he sent me his details through a while ago, see in the meantime look into getting some serious EMF protection my free report is a good starting point.

  • geosoi said,

    Just a heads up for everyone here.

    These are simply artist’s concept paintings.
    They do a very poor job of depicting what is really going on.

    The problem is far more complex than what is depicted in the paintings.

    And that that “height” of the waves is presented as something relative
    to elevation is just pure comedy.
    And far from reality!

    The idea that WiFi is in “a unique transmission band that can’t be interrupted by other signals.” is complete utter nonsense.

    WiFi has more than one “band”.

    Typical US WiFi occupies the 2.4GHz ISM (license free Industry, Scientific, Medical band from 2.4 GHz to 2.4835 GHz)

    WiFi at 2.4GHz shares the spectrum with lots of other devices that transmit
    and receive using totally different modulation protocols than what WiFi uses.
    A non-WiFi transmitter can seriously interrupt the ability of a WiFi transceiver to function properly.
    Put a bunch of 802.15 transmitters running data next to an 802.11 WiFi router and see how fast the WiFi becomes useless due to jamming from the 802.15 signals. (Both use the same 2.4 GHz ISM band)

    As for the colors representing the channels in the WiFi spectrum, the paintings totally miss the whole point.

    Would you care about the make and model of the car that hit you?
    Or the caliber of bullet that killed some one?

    I will spare everyone a diatribe on Maxwell’s Equations.
    Go read through that on WikiPedia.
    Some one did a great job on it.

    Exposure to non-ionizing radiation is a serious issue.
    This story does a horrible job of conveying the concept and dangers.

    Better that you follow the trail that Max has offered.

    Even better that you get very fluent in trigonometry and calculus and
    differential equations and a first year of Physics.

    As for the reference to the interview with Dr. Vogel (Vokel?), assuming the
    text at

    is correct, Dr. Vogel is thoroughly incompetent to offer advice on this subject.

    Another choice is that Dr. Vogel does not exist, which is very likely, if not obvious.

    Two pages of web search links offered no information at all with regard
    to Dr. Vogel alone.
    Every single link did have a reference to artist Lamm and that he worked with said Dr. Vogel.

  • Vivian said,

    I see it as a kind of weird off brown like color, similar to the color between double rainbows. It changes the color of the sky at night, adding some reddish/purple tones and making the night sky quite bright. Rfi blocking film makes the sky look normal. It often causes me to have visual noise so that I have trouble seeing and reading. Sometimes, if I get a strong pulse, it will feel as if someone flashed a camera at me, and I won’t be able to see clearly for several minutes. (a meter confirmed this)
