RF Exposure and You

Some radio amateurs were understandably concerned when they first heard about the new FCC RF exposure requirements. Their reaction could be summed up as: "Oh no--not more regulations. Pretty soon you'll have to have an engineering degree before you're allowed to screw in a light bulb!"

Others were more philosophical. "After all," they reasoned, "the new rules are designed to protect my health and that of my neighbors and family. Complying with them could be a bit inconvenient, but at least it will show my neighbors and family that my station is safe."

Whichever way you may have reacted, the new RF exposure rules are now a part of the regulatory landscape and are likely to remain so. The ARRL has done its best to ease the transition. ARRL Headquarters staff and volunteers participated fully with the FCC as it determined the best advice to give amateurs on how to meet the new requirements. We were able to persuade the FCC to reconsider its rules, and to rewrite them so that amateurs would be less affected.

This book was written to communicate one simple message: For the vast majority of Amateur Radio operators, the RF exposure rules are not difficult to understand and follow. This book has what you need -- the background information, suggestions and worksheets to help you to comply with the new RF exposure rules. With this information, you will be able to operate your station legally and safely -- and you will be able to operate.

Executive Vice President
