Abstract : The engineering and technical staff of the radar stations in civilian aviation are subjected to the action of direct and diffused, discrete, and often almost constant, or intermittent pulse-type UHF radiation the level of which can be from units of micro w/sq cm 2 up to several micro w/sq cm. The prevention of the harmful effect of microwaves on the personnel of the radar stations should be based in the first place on planned and organized measures and afterwards further on the use of protecting media. It is necessary to develop norms for allowable radiation taking into account the periodicity, intensity, and frequency range of the acting UHF energy. The high levels of UHF radiation recorded from the radar antennas require the establishment of zones of sanitary protection and the development of methods of theoretical computation and dosimetric determination of their nagnitudes.
