Executive Summary

Public interest in the potential health issues relating to cellular or mobile communication Base Station (BS) and other radio communication facilities emphasize the importance of having an accessible and easy to understand information on Electro-Magnetic (EM) and Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) levels in the surrounding environment. The information is considered critical in order to assess the potential radiation level prior and during the roll-out of planned or future services such as the 4G, Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA), Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMax), Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS) and others. The paper outlines the attempts of developing a specialized software tool that can gauge the RFR concentration within a particular area.
