What a farce. I'd like to see all interested licensees bombard OfCom with changes to their circumstances on a regular basis, to the point that the workload of administering this becomes unmanageable. Unfortunately I cant see this happening.
Pardon me for being thick, but what is this relating to? From what I can determine, is we need to confirm to legislation on interference?
Perhaps a good subject for a Friday night chat from Uncle Bob BEM
This is what happens when you platform anti-science woo. What an absolute heap of BS.
Copy of spreadsheet on emf page - looks like I need to get tower up higher 2m I need 60m separation from friends and family - bugger for portable when it comes back lots of warning tape appropriate distance from ant.
I have no clue what I'm supposed to do but if members of the public are within 6.3m of my radiation source they are trespassing and or 2/3 of the way up my mast 🤣
More crap to be chucked in the "snowflake file" (bin)
11-99W the spreadsheet says 3.18m for 15MHz. My property is 6.3m wide and I'm not allowed a mast or anything. Have written to RSGB for advice on whether to make a representation, and for clarification on exactly what measurements are required. Their guidance actually contradicts the policy - policy says if your licence permits >10W tx then you must meet the requirements... guidance says you can avoid the requirements by not transmitting more than 10W... so perhaps they will allow me a magloop or something, as long as I orient it N-S. Also, we'll all be limited to about 10W on 70cm and 2m in the car, and unable to use HF more than 10W (assuming that 10W guidance remains in place) since most cars are only 2m wide - and then you need to make sure the antenna is in the middle... Bums! Stinky dog bums!
As far as I can see, if you declare you’re using low power, you are exempt? Is that correct?
If all it takes is to declare that you're running low power, I'll just do that.
load of rubbish
So, just looked at the ofcom spreadsheet and followed their guidelines for entering power etc, and according to their blurb on duty cycle, even if I was to get a full licence and use 100 watts (can’t afford a linear), I’m fine. Even at 100% duty at 100w, it’s also fine. So, do we have to do anything with this data, or is it just a case of do it and file it! If it’s a part of the license requirements, it’ll be about as important as the rest of the licence requirements that you hear flouted on a daily basis.
Craig when you read it says that the calculations are based on full power to try and offer a guide. It is also aware about the average. I have come across another spreadsheet which I found on the RSGB website emf-calculator-v0.1.1.rsgb.7b2.xlsx it looks complicated at first look but just follow the instructions and it's easy. You can choose different modes, power, antennas, etc and it takes into account the average powers. Overall it gives a lot clearer picture in my mind
