wireless keyboard & mouse-Microsoft nine-hundred

Greetings from a Newbee... I, of course, have become watchful & wary of other electronic devices I may be around- Heck, I even wrapped Alum-foil around my "Smart-meter"(it's under my bedroom window). So when my son gave me a wire-less computer keyboard, I became a tad concerned...The owners manual says 6 inches but what do they know...? Anyone have any inside poop on that issue?  thanks & Merry Christmas, Electroboy

Radio Frequency Facial

Evening,

I have booked a Radio Frequency facial and just discovered that apparently RF interfers with the pacemaker.

I am struggling to understand why a RF wand on my face will interfere with the PM?  This is not a super strong RF as it is a beauty treatment.

Thanks

Quick question .....

I am having a precautionary nuclear ☢️ stress test .

not really because of symptoms and mostly because I think it makes sense (I've also met my deductible this year ) as I have had artery issues in the past.

Sometimes a device must be tuned a few times before it is right. My cardiologist said it is like fine tuning a car.
