Ofcom stated on their website that by June 8th various documents relating to EMF/ICNIRP and for amateur radio (etc) would be updated , anyone have a link to these documents if its happened ? all the stuff still seems to be dated 18 May yet nothing about any delay not only on their site but RSGB or Southgate ARC infact nothing anywhere.

I noticed this too. ???

Breathing a sigh of relief that I've got no real worries on my Foundation licence power limits but I've been keeping an eye out for my full licence Ham friend to help him along.

I suppose we just have to do what they've been making us do all along with this......patiently wait! Smile

Whole things been a dogs dinner from the start , introducing rules in 2021 based on Icnirp 1998 when Icnirp 2020 has superseeded it. All my docs are in place ( plus loads of other crap if needed antenna spec , coax spec , linear amp spec,google Earth photo of antenna ) but its just another example that Ofcom are in my opinion not fit for purpose.

The Ofcom EMF calculator has also been updated.

Ofcom updates EMF guidance document and calculator

The guidance document What you need to know as an amateur radio user has been updated, as has the Ofcom EMF calculator.
The guide provides an overview of what you need to do to comply with Ofcom’s EMF licence condition
Links to all of the documents and calculators can be found on our website
This updated guide is much simplified from the earlier version and now comprises just four steps.
Step 1 – Do I need to comply?
Step 2 – Carrying out a compliance check
Step 3 – Managing compliance
Step 4 – Keeping an appropriate compliance record
Carrying out a compliance check to find exclusion zones now refers to just three methods: using an Ofcom table to look up distances, using the Ofcom or RSGB calculator, or using a pre-assessed configuration to give less conservative exclusion zones.
If you need to use more advanced techniques like detailed modelling or measurements you are referred to Ofcom’s “Guidance on EMF Compliance and Enforcement “ previously published for all spectrum users.
Ofcom has also published (for all spectrum users) an updated calculator v 1.0. which allows for use of ERP or EIRP and provides a power calculation tool.
The RSGB calculator v10, tailored specifically for amateur use, will be released soon which includes mode dependent power reductions, updated feeder losses and antenna gain tables and the updated low power compliance condition.
Remember the key dates for compliance are:

  • 18 November 2021 for frequencies you are using at or above 110 MHz

  • 18 May 2022 for frequencies you are using above 10 MHz but below 110 MHz

  • 18 November 2022 for frequencies you are using at or below 10 MHz

Looking at Version v9e of the RSGB calculator, long wire is still there after “longer yagi” and before “mag loop.”
