EMF Seminar



EMF Seminar "Measurements for certification of Base Station sites


Instructor: Matthias Wuschek

Location: Royal Olympic Hotel, Athanasiou Diakou 28-34, 117 43, Athens

Date: Monday 30/04/2018

Timetable: 09:00 – 17:00

Participant background: Basic knowledge on 2G/3G/4G field exposure measurements




Part 1: Theory

·      Basic strategies for site certification (calculations versus measurements). Practical example: Situation in Germany / Switzerland.

·      Determining safety distances around Base Station antennas by calculation (typical the first choice).

·      Safety distance check by measurements (additional option, if calculations do not deliver a clear result).

·      Brief repetition of GSM / UMTS / and LTE signal structure and the consequences for the measurements.

·      Data of the site, which has to be delivered by the operator for performing the extrapolation of the measurement results to maximum transmitter power. A simple data table will be introduced, which can be used for the practical work.



Part 2: Practice

·      Performing practical measurements at a real Base Station site with GSM / UMTS and LTE systems. Possible measurement location: A flat rooftop close to Base Station antennas with public access where rather high field strength values are present.

·      Using the SRM-3006. Storing the results in the instrument memory.

·      After returning to the training room: Evaluating the stored results with the SRM-TS software. Extrapolation to maximum transmitter power and summation using a simple Excel sheet.

·      Additional topic (if the time allows): The European workers directive 2013/35 EU and its consequences for workers safety check around mobile phone Base Stations (and broadcast transmitter) antennas.

·      Final discussion.
