This is post 2619 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Mike (M0MSN) for this interesting antenna experiment.  Mike wanted to know if buried radials emit EMF.

Mike concluded that his buried radial system didn't transmit any detectable signals.

Here are some general comments from Mike:

I purchased a cheap EMF Tester from eBay just to see if I was compliant with the new EMF rules. One of the burning question I have is. "Do you measure the safe working distance of a ground feed vertical from the feed point or the end of the ground radials"? A lot of work has been done on this subject none of which is conclusive, so I thought I would give it a go and try to show if GROUND RADIALS, RADIATE. There are NO issues with mobile phones or their chargers, Ground radials DO NOT radiate that was my point! Disclaimer: I am not an expert in the field of RF, the test equipment is cheap and may not be calibrated or sensitive enough to show very low reading and lastly my radials are buried 2 cm below the ground. also I am not sure of the distance a meter reading is to be taken from (I believe it is taken at a distance of around 1 metre from the source and that the maximum permitted V/M reading is 85m/v) Playing with RF can be dangerous PLEASE DO NOT TRY OR COPY THIS EXPERIMENT. Please comment: Enjoy I do hope you enjoy it and subscribe for more.. Many thanks Mike - M0MSN To get notified of the next upload .click that bell and subscribe..
