Health related Radar height concerns

When I wrote "mount it high as you can" I meant 10~25 feet.

Health related Radar height concerns

Tom, I have worked radar, sat. uplink, microwave, UHF and VHF Xmitters since the 1970''s. Some of that gear radiated over 5 million watts. I have had children, a head of hair like a bum, with no cancers...yet! The only health problems to date have been RF burns and other types of electricty related burns from accidental contact. Mount it as high as you can (line of site device) and forget it. Greg

Health related Radar height concerns

I understand the pro''s and con''s of Radar on the Mast vs. on A stern Pole Mount vs. Backstay, etc.........

But does *anyone* have a concern with the Radar so low that it might cause health related issues for anyone on the foredeck?

I guess this is my *biggest* worry..........

Should I be? ......any Radar engineers/technicians out there?.....If so, do you have any children?....;-).
