Abstract
The report outlines studies on two portable radiocommunications sets, PRC-77 and PRC-515, to assess the potential health hazard to the operator due to exposure in the vicinity of the radio sets. The studies were carried on in two phases. In phase one the electric fields were measured in the vicinity of the antenna for both sets at selected frequencies. Since the near fields for the PRC-77 are very low, well below the levels of potential health hazards, further studies were limited to the PRC-515 set. In phase two the specific absorption rate (SAR) in selected locations in the realistic phantom model of the human body, placed in the vicinity of the operating radio set PRC-515, were measured. The results indicate that the SAR values in the phantom model exceed, at the low end of the operating range, the recommended average values of the recent ANSI standard in the U.S.A.
