7 Oct 2021 – RSGB’s EMF Calculator

Members watched a video by the RSGB on filling out the latest EMF calculator.  Quoting from their web page: “The New Amateur Licence now requires all amateurs to check compliance with EMF exposure limits. Compliance is required after 18 November 2021 for frequencies above 110MHz, after 18 May 2022 for frequencies above 10MHz but below 110MHz, after 18 November 2022 for frequencies below 10MHz”.

As presented, the calculator only shows results for frequencies above 10MHz, the lower frequencies will be covered in a later publication.

Discussions followed the video, including some speculations about what will befall the lower frequencies.  The calculator can be found at www.rsgb.org.uk/emf      Look for RSGB/Ofcom calculator (3.6 MB MS-Excel Worksheet version rsgb11a) V0.1.2
