C-network Study by Dr. Gerd Oberfeld, Salzburg

Much attention has been given to a 'study' conducted in the Federal Province of Styria by Dr. Gerd Oberfeld of the Salzburg Landessanitätsdirektion (Office for public health of the Federal State of Salzburg, Austria) in which he claims to have established a cancer cluster with direct causal link to a mobile phone base station.

Among other shortcomings the major issue of this study was that the purported owner of the base station, the Austrian incumbent A1 Telekom Austria (formerly Mobilkom Austria) could demonstrate that no base station existed at the time at the location in question. Dr. Oberfeld agreed to an out-of-court settlement and withdrew the study.
