Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation MeasurementsHome pollutants

Information carrying Radio Waves (ICRW) have become part of our daily life. We can’t function or perform effectively without the reliance on wireless technologies. However that comes at a cost.  

Mounting evidence from thousands of researches suggests that long -term exposure to RF radiation is detrimental to health. At cellular level, human body is sensitive to pulsating signals at any frequency. We are daily coming across spill-over effect from long-term exposure to radiation represented by electro-sensitive part of the community (ES) or electro-hypersensitive (EHS). Their number is increasing by the day. Studies estimate  10% – 12% of World population is EHS..

Our duty at “Less Rad for You” is to lessen that cost to as low as reasonably attainable (ALARA Principle) without compromising performance. With awareness and affordable mitigation steps we could reduce the risk of long-term exposure to radiation, paying back in good health and well being. 

Our calibrated RF testing equipment covers a wide range of radio  frequencies, 27 MHz – 6 GHz:

–  RF – Analyser HFE35C   Freq. range: 800 MHz  –  2.5 GHz   Measuring range: 0.1-1999 µW/m²

– RF – Analyzer  HFE59B   Freq. range: 27 MHz – 3.3 GHz   Measuring Range: 0.01-19,999 µW/m²

– RF – Analyzer HFW35C  Freq. range: 2.4 – 6 GHz   Measuring range: 0.1-1999 µW/m²- TTI 

– PSA2701T Spectrum Analyzer 1 MHz – 2.7 GHz

Residential and Commercial Assessment

Our main focus on residential testing is to lower the long-term exposure to RF radiation especially in the sleeping and living sanctuaries as well as children play areas. We identify and measure RF levels from indoor as well as outdoor sources. 

We are able to identify and measure RF radiation from the following sources and advise remediation:

  • Cell phones and cell towers 
  • Routers and wireless computers
  • Wi-Fi hot spots
  • WiMAX
  • DECT cordless phones 
  • Bluetooth devices
  • Smart meters
  • Microwave Ovens
  • Baby monitors
  • Wireless security systems
  • Radar
  • FM Radio and TV stations
  • Digital audio and video broadcasting (DAB & DVB)
  • Other wireless communication devices  from 2.4 GHz  to 6 GHz, such as wireless LAN and some radars.
