Exposure to RF energy is always a concern. Concerns have been voiced about these and more:
- High tension wires from the electric company
- X-rays at the doctor and dentist
- TV sets
- Computer monitors
- Cell phones
2-way radios will also cause exposure to RF energy. Scientists and doctors do not really know for sure just what levels are harmful. It takes decades to accumulate enough data. In an attempt to be safe, the FCC has created guidelines for exposure. It is not to say that our radios are harmful, the FCC just wants to be conservative. So per the FCC we have certain statements in our manuals to describe exposure guidelines. We recommend trying to adhere to the exposure guidelines whenever possible.
Please be assured that when used as intended our radios are not harmful.
