Abstract:

This report details the engineering consideration of a program designed to monitor selected blood-borne hormones in male Sprague-Dawley rats exposed to 435-MHz continuous-wave radiofrequency radiation. The experimental group consisted of 100 rats housed in Plexiglas cages arrayed on the tiers of a stacked, parallel-plate circular waveguide. The power density along the circumference of the waveguide was 1.0 mWsq cm. The control group consisted of 100 rats housed in an identical, but unenergized, colocated facility. This volume details waveguide and antenna development, cage development, and equipment and facility descriptions. Keywords Transmitters Nonionizing electromagnetic radiation Microwave long-term bioeffects. Author
