    [01] Cyprus - Britain - Bases - Antenna

    Nicosia, Aug 28 (CNA) -- Cyprus and Britain have agreed to have an independent panel of experts, who will look into their separate assessments on the possible environmental impact a new 100-metre high antenna could have on the area of the Salt Lake, near the British Base of Akrotiri where London intends to install the new telecommunications mast.

    The Ministry of Communications and Works announced today that measurements of the electromagnetic emissions in Akrotiri showed that the exposure of the public to electromagnetic radiation is at least 76 times lower than the limit recommended by the European Commission.
