Abstract
The radiofrequency abosrption rates of five male human volunteers have been measured from 3 to 41 MHz. The subjects were exposed at about 10 mu W square cm inside a very large transverse electromagnetic (TEM) cell and never absorbed more than 1 W. Both the EKH and EHK orientations were employed under both free-space and grounded conditions. Absorption rates for the EKH orientation exceed those of the EHK orientation by 40% in free space, but only by 6% when grounded. The average absorption rates at 10 MHz exceed the average of the standard model calculations by a factor of three (for free space) or four (grounded).
