The report provides an analysis of ambient microwave field intensities produced by radar equipment in the San Francisco area. The original data on which the report is based is contained in a report prepared by the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS), Department of Commerce, Boulder, Colorado. System characteristics were taken into account to determine actual field power densities illuminating the ITS monitoring antennas. The purpose of this analysis was to determine the extent of ambient exposure which may be attributed to radar installations in metropolitan areas. Radar exposure at the Palo Alto site was .0027 mw/sq m and at the Bernal Heights site .0011 mw/sq m for the top 10 contributing radars at each location. These values are generally equal to or lower than commonly existing radio-frequency fields from signals in the broadcast service on the basis of past EPA measurements.
