Radio and television

Radio stations work at frequency ranges between 1.4 and 108 MHz, television stations between 174 and 890 MHz. The number of stations is low compared to mobile telecommunication. Transmitter power, however, can be very high, up to several million watt (MW) depending on the size of the area to be powered and on the frequency range. Safety distances in the main radiating direction of the antenna can therefore amount to several hundred meters. High radio towers usually do not require safety distances at ground level .
