Cell phone systems, broadcasting systems and other communication systems are the main sources of electromagnetic radiation in this area.

For far field conditions, an E (electric) field probe will be sufficient (WPF8 probe) while for low frequency transmitters (near field), the H (magnetic) field will also have to be measured (e.g. WPH60 probe).

Personnel who access telecommunication infrastructures or climb towers also need to stay safe with a personal monitor (WaveMon), to avoid overexposure.
