Mobile telephones and base stations

Mobile telephones and base stations -osioetusivun ingressi

Data communication between the mobile phone and the base station takes place via radio waves. A portion of the energy of radio waves is absorbed in the user’s body, as the phone is kept close to the body when the phone is used. Base stations with a wide coverage area use a clearly higher transmit power than mobile phones. Antennas with a high transmit power must be mounted in locations which prevent people from finding themselves in their proximity.
