EPA and the Federal Communications Commission conducted a joint study of radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic field levels and induced RF currents in the Spokane area in June 1987. The location of several AM towers in residential areas of southern Spokane made this an advantageous location for the study and allowed the collection of data on many different sources at every measurement site. The study also investigated RF levels near TV and FM antennas in the Spokane area. In order to refine broadband measurement procedures, field perturbation by an individual making a measurement and by conductive objects were investigated, and two problems associated with broadband measurement equipment, RF potential sensitivity and nonsinusoidal response were demonstrated.
