Electromagnetic power levels were measured and compared with theoretical power levels from selected transmitters operating in the frequency range of 54 to 220 MHz in the Las Vegas, Nevada, area. The field measurements were made at 62 grid locations by means of calibrated dipole and biconical antennas. Power variations with respect to antenna height, time of day, distance from a grid point, angular dependence, and terrain were investigated. The data were evaluated in terms of observed and theoretical power levels and converted to power densities for hazards analysis applications. The results indicate that estimates of theoretical power levels should serve as a satisfactory measure of population exposure to electromagnetic energy in the frequency range considered. (Author)
