RF Testing, RF Measurements and RF Surveys By EMF & RF Solutions

Radio Frequency testing in Southern California is on the rise. Whether it’s the intent of professional corporations and testing facilities to create a low RF environment – or to make improvements to overall health and well-being, testing for RF has quickly become a focal point in Southern California. This is a solution we can provide.

EMF & RF Solutions was built to provide scientific and unbiased testing, evaluation, measurement and solutions for radio frequency. Our goal is to create healthy and functional indoor environments with low RF levels through a reasonable and practical approach.

The purpose of RF testing is to empower to make responsible, fact-based decisions about the RF environment in your facility, school home or community. By use of our state-of-the-art spectrum analyzers, antennas and broadband equipment we are able to test, measure and assess your radio frequency RF) spectrum and provide field reduction solutions.


Why is RF Radiation a Growing Concern?

Our electromagnetic environment has significantly changed over the last decade – introducing new risks to being exposed to RF Radiation. High frequency radiation is used for wireless signal transmission and is usually referred to as radio frequency (RF) and microwave radiation. Cell towers, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, wireless speaker, entertainment centers and gadgets are now present abundantly in our daily lives – especially in the Southern California region. As such, these new technologies are exposing us to unknown quantities of RF radiation; which can lead to potential health risks.

At EMF&RF Solutions, we evaluate the obtained RF field levels according to national and international regulatory exposure limits, and precaution action levels published by national and international medical experts. Based on our findings, we provide recommendation to our clients on how to reduce their exposure to RF sources in their environment.

RF surveys are performed with our advanced state of the art instrumentation for the following purposes:

  • Due diligence inspection in real estate transaction
  • Prior and post to the installation of cellular towers
  • Assessment of RF radiation present in a building indoor or property lot
  • Land Use Planning
  • To establish a baseline for shielding projects
  • Verification of shielding projects
  • Evaluate the emission form in-house wireless systems such as Wi-Fi
  • Environmental sensitivity
  • Creating an environment conduce to recuperating from illness
  • Building low RF building

We have conducted RF testing and surveys in commercial buildings, schools and residential building throughout the Southern California region. Including a focus our RF testing in the following counties:

If you happen to live outside of these counties, that’s okay. We have been contracted to conduct RF testing throughout the United States as well.


What are the Causes of RF Radiation?

The associated health effects related to RF exposures is widely debated in the scientific and medical community – ranging from “no worries” to prudent avoidance. The traditional and current regulatory approach is to acknowledge only the thermal (heating) effect on human tissue and exposure regulations are based on this concept.

However, in the past ten years a significant number of studies have shown other potential non-thermal health effects that go much further than the heating issues. These conditions range from increased and altered cell proliferation influences on hormones, heart, circulatory, and nervous system.

These non-thermal effects are currently not recognized by the regulatory authorities in the United States. However, since the United States is one of the countries in the world with the highest allowable exposure limits in the world – this could lead to significant problems if not resolved quickly. From an international view point, a number of countries have lowered the permissible public exposure levels significantly. Recommendations by concerned scientists and physicians call for even lower precautionary action levels.

It’s our goal at EMF&RF Solutions to become proactive about reducing RF Radiation across the board.


How Do We Test for RF Radiation?

The Narda Selective Radiation Meter SRM 3006 is our state-of-the-art choice to detect RF Radiation in Southern California. This advanced technology accurately detects fields well below domestic and international regulatory standards and precautionary action levels. The SRM 3006 has the ability to measure fields more accurately than broadband meter and identifies exactly what sources or emitters are generating the most power. There are three different modes we activate to detect RF Radiation:

  • The Spectrum Analysis mode within the SRM 3006 allows the identification of the different RF emitter.
  • The Level Recording mode allows us to watch and monitor one specific signal of frequency band over a long period of time.
  • The Safety Evaluation allow us to measure the multiple sources/emitter individually in one table and sums up the total RF level present at a location.

Our intent is to provide a proactive solution in the testing, monitoring and elimination of RF Radiation in Southern California. Our RF testing methods and reporting is far superior to the regulatory compliance survey provided by cellular service provider and their consultants. We scan the full spectrum of potential RF sources present – including radio and TV broadcasting transmitters. Armed with a team of RF Radiation experts that have years of experience and extensive training in conducting RF survey, we can offer our clients a proactive and effective solution in their quest to detect and reduce radio frequency radiation.

Our electromagnetic environments have dramatically changed over the last decade. Wireless technology and applications have made their way into every aspect of our daily life. Numerous sources of RF and microwave radiation are being brought into our indoor environment. Do you want to know what you, your family or staff is being exposed to? Or want to create a low RF environment as part of a healthy green building?

EMF & RF Solutions Provides RF Testing to:

  • Measure the exposure in your building from cell towers, radio and TV antennas
  • Measure the radiation if you’re planning to build or live near major transmission or cell tower sites
  • Assess the proper installation of your wireless network (WLAN) system, identify high radiation areas and suggest RF mitigation methods for your system
  • Evaluate your cordless phones and reduce your exposure. Did you know that many cordless phones are emitting RF radiation constantly, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year without being used to talk?
  • Evaluate Bluetooth devices
  • Check the RF and microwave radiation emitted from baby monitors
  • Use in the planning of wireless smart house technology and security systems
  • Conduct OSHA or FCC RF compliance surveys for your building or construction site

RF Testing Equipment
Our state-of-the-art spectrum analyzers and appropriate antennas allow us to identify the different frequencies present, measure the strength (amplitude) of the signals, detect pulsed signals, time and code division multiplexing and frequency hopping. Broadband meters allow us to test, measure and assess the entire frequency range.
