RADIO COMMUNICATIONS IN THE COMMUNITY - L1
Radio communications are a part of everyday life in today's society. All radio communications systems utilise EMF in the radiofrequency (RF) part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Typical systems include TV, AM & FM radio broadcasting, mobile phones and their base stations, wireless broadband, paging services, cordless phones, baby monitors, emergency services (police, fire, ambulance), rural / country communications.
There has been a lot of research conducted worldwide to investigate possible health effects of radio communications and wireless technology.
In relation to radio frequency emissions and wireless technology and health, the general conclusion from the World Health Organization (WHO) is;
“Despite extensive research, to date there is no evidence to conclude that exposure to low level electromagnetic fields is harmful to human health”
