There's an interesting debate internally at Powercast. While Ostaffe is convinced the best source of ambient RF power is from mobile basestations, one of his colleagues believes it's from nearby cellphones, and they did a demo when the first iPhone came out in 2007 to show that effect. However, I'd side with Ostaffe: the basestations are a more reliable and ubiquitous source. What do you think?
