Radio Frequency, or Microwave Radiation, or RF Radiation is a general name for High-frequency electromagnetic radiation between 100 KHz to 300 GHz.
This radiation is emitted from all electronic wireless communication devices that are based on radio signals, for example, Radar, TV and radio broadcast, WIFI, wireless phones, mobile phones, Bluetooth, satellite communication, wireless communication systems, wireless point to point systems and more. Since most of these sources are meant to communicate for at least 10 meters (in case of the lowest emission Bluetooth), there is not safety distance from them. You can use your RF meter to find the source in your house and the penetration points to the house. In order to reduce exposure we recommend to go wired (change all wireless technologies with wired technologies) and to use RF Protection to keep the RF from outside from coming into the house.
Frequencies of MW or RF
Units of MW or RF
- V/m – Electric field units.
Specific types and sources of MW or RF
- TV and radio broadcast
- Wireless/cordless phones (DECT and others)
- Mobile and smartphones
- Bluetooth devices
- Satellite communication
- Wireless communication systems
- Wireless point to point systems
- Baby monitors
- Smart house appliance
- Smart meter
- tablets, wireless computers
- WIFI routers and access points
Characteristics of MW or RF
- Very directional
- Relatively easy to stop and block (compared to ELF easier and cheaper to block).
Other names of MW or RF
- Radio frequencies (RF)
- Microwave radiation (WM)
- High-frequency EMR
- Wireless radiation
- High-frequency field
- Cellular radiation
- SAR for mobile phones.
- ICNIRP for antennas
- Both SAR and ICRNIP are based on the assumption that the only effect that RF has on biological systems is heat
- Both SAR and ICRNIP are non-protective of possible long term health risks.

Studies and science
- Studies show biological changed, damage and more risk from as low as 0.003uW/cm2 (0.03mW/m2)
- The International agency for research of Cancer (IARC) declared RF as a “possible carcinogenic to humans” in 2011.
