Scanning Device for Sampling the Spatial Distribution of the E-field
This paper presents a low cost automatic system for
sampling the electric field in a limited area. The scanning area is a
flat surface parallel to the ground at a selected height. We discuss
in detail the hardware, software and all the arrangements involved
in the system operation. In order to show the system performance
we include a campaign of narrow band measurements with 6017
sample points in the surroundings of a cellular base station. A
commercial isotropic antenna with three orthogonal axes was used
as sampling device. The results are analyzed in terms of its space
average, standard deviation and statistical distribution.

Perturbations of the EM-field Meters Reading Caused by Flat Roof Security Wall
The wide increase and diffusion on telecommunication
technologies have caused a huge spread of electromagnetic sources
in most European Countries. Since the public is continuously being
exposed to electromagnetic radiation the possible health effects have
become the focus of population concerns. As a result, electromagnetic
field monitoring stations which control field strength in commercial
frequency bands are being placed on the flat roof of many buildings.
However there is no guidance on where to place them. This paper
presents an analysis of frequency, polarization and angles of incidence
of a plane wave which impinges on a flat roof security wall and its
dependence on electromagnetic field strength meters placement.
