Radio and television

Broadcasting stations transmit at frequencies between 150 kilohertz and several hundred megahertz. 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 coverage area 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 .
