RF-Safety Evaluation required for all amateur stations!

The FCC has changed its RF-exposure rules. All Amateur stations are now required to complete a RF-safety evaluation. The ARRL has conveniently developed an online calculator and FAQ to help Amateur stations to comply with the rules. There is also a recent publicly available QST article further detailing the background and requirements. Please see their RF Exposure Calculator page for further information on compliance and to develop a binder specific to your station.
