ARRL Offers RF Exposure Calculators to Amateurs

The ARRL has developed an online calculator that will allow radio amateurs to evaluate the level of radiofrequency (RF) effects emanating from their equipment.

The ARRL’s RF exposure calculator allows users to simply enter the transmit peak-envelope power (PEP) and operating mode of their radio systems and antennas, along with estimates about the maximum amount of transmission time. The exposure calculator then determines the minimum distances that people must maintain from this equipment to minimize their exposure to potentially harmful RF effects.

The ARRL says that its RF exposure calculator is intended to assist amateurs in the routine evaluations of RF exposure to help ensure that their systems and equipment comply with RF exposure rules mandated by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
