Abstract : The aim of the research was to study the health aspects of the working conditions of personnel employed in the vicinity of ultrashort-wave television transmitters, and to determine the effects of the electromagnetic fields within these wavelengths. The studies were conducted at radio and television stations whose basic equipment consisted of 2-5 kw transmitters operating at 67-230 Mc. The 16 transmitters studied each consisted of a metal cabinet housing, enclosing power tubes, condensers, oscillators, power line and switching components, and control-and-measuring components.
