Title Residential exposure to radiofrequency fields from mobile phone base stations, and broadcast transmitters: A population-based survey with personal meter
Bibliographic information Aug. 2009, Vol.66, No.8, p.550-556. Illus. 27 ref.
Abstract The main goal of this study was to characterize the distribution of residential exposure to radiofrequency fields from antennas. The 200 randomly-selected participants were supplied with a personal exposure meter for 24 h measurements and kept a time-location-activity diary. Distances between places of residence and antennae were calculated using geographical information databases. Findings are discussed.
