Determination and Analysis of Electromagnetic Pollution at Two Shopping Malls in Konya at 100 kHz-3 GHz Frequency

Derya Gürğan and Levent Seyfi

Abstract—In this paper, short time electromagnetic radiation measurements were carried out at 100kHz-3 GHz frequency band to show electromagnetic pollution level at two shopping malls in Konya city centre. Measurements were performed at predetermined points on floor plans of shopping malls. Narda EMR-300 radiation meter was used as a measurement device and 6 minutes averaged values of measurement data were recorded. When the measurement results were examined, it was shown that limit values determined by ICTA (Information and Communication Technologies Authority) and ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) were not exceeded by the measured electromagnetic radiation values and major electromagnetic radiation resource was signal boosting devices used for mobile phones.

Index Terms—Electromagnetic pollution, GSM signal amplifier, non-ionizing radiation, radiation measurement.
