Bahrain TRA tests radio signals from masts
Results show levels are 0.01% of maximum level permitted
The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has revealed that the results of tests on the levels of radio signals measured at all telecommunications mast sites in the Kingdom of Bahrain in 2011 are significantly lower than the limits set by international guidelines that have been adopted by the Commission for the Protection of Marine Resources, Environment and Wildlife in Ministerial Order No. 4 of 2009.
The tests were performed at 12 separate public sites during the first three months of 2011 and the highest total exposure for a typical public site measured during the quarter was 0.01% of the maximum level permitted by Ministerial Order No 4.
"TRA has been measuring and reporting on ambient radio signal levels in the Kingdom for two years and we are happy to see the compliance of licensed operators with Ministerial Order No 4 of 2009," said TRA's Technical and Operations director, Mohammed Mahmood. "This report is consistent with the previous reports in its findings that, public exposure to radio signals emitted from telecommunications masts is significantly below international guidelines."
