Ministry to keep close watch on cellular antennas’ radiation

The Environmental Protection Ministry will start monitoring the radiation levels emitted from mobile phone antennas by using a special designed system that will track the RF power outputs of mobile phone base station all over the country.
I don't think the system will be able to monitor the EMR levels in the environment but only to calculate them (not very accurate and does not takes into consideration buildings, metal objects and other radiation sources). In addition the standard in Israel is still high (42 microWatt/cm2) but all in all this is a good step forward and it might allow to better regulate the mobile phone networks.
