I was an X-Ray tech and believe me, radar is dangerous long term.
More mis-information! Radar is NOT X-ray. X-ray is way higher in frequency (30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3010 to the power of 15 to 3010 to the power of 18)) and is ionizing radiation. Marine radar is non-ionizing radiation and operates in the X band (8-12 Gigahertz).
