    So, that brings up an interesting question !
    If my entire house is eventually wallpapered with paper that contains a built in antenna, how am I ever going to be able to figure out the exposure risks now required by the FCC ?
    It boggles the mind.

    Actually, printing antennas on thin substrates has been around greater than 35+ years. Not only that, those antennas work quite well with backscatter RFID chips powered by nothing more than RF itself. Printing an antenna capable of 1500w for use by amateurs? That would seem to be an interesting job for a physicist to solve.

    If I ever use a conductive wallpaper, it will be a shielding against all wifi, Bluetooth, IoT, 4G, 5G, 153.298G, and everything... (My wifi is not always on.) I'm living in a big old apartment house surrounded by office buildings, and even in the anteroom in the middle of it that has no windows (and the outer walls are almost 2 feet thick), I receive signals of about fifteen Bluetooth equipments daytime. : - )

    Start connecting to them and play horror movie sounds, turn lights on and off, That should scare people and they may eventually shut the stuff off

    One family, not hams, had a sunroom added to their home. Three times in the first year it had lightning strikes. Seems that the aluminum siding outside and the aluminum foiled wall paper inside turned into a room size capacitor that would get charged up by the high static atmosphere. Then would discharge through the switches and outlets in the room with a large flash. Wallpaper was replaced and ground rods connected to the siding ended that.

    Exposure risk will be the easy part. Finding a rotator for the HOUSE may prove to be more difficult.
