Communication connection between two mobile
1.When the caller start the call the electro magnetic field transmit from his mobile antenna which received by the closest base station “BS”.
2.Then the signal transmit from the BS to the switching center “SC” in order to check the authentication of the caller and receiver.
3.After that the SC will transmit the signal to the closest BS in the receiver side
4.Next the BS is going to transmit electro magnetic waive which should be received be the receiver mobile antenna.
5. Finally after the receiver open the line the two way communication connection establish between two persons.
How the radiation is produced by a cell phone?
ØCell phone radiation is transmitted by cell phone antenna in all directions
ØMost of the energy lost in the space
ØPart of the energy received by base station
Ø part of the energy is incident on human head
Electro magnetic signal transmit from cell phone antenna
Note: The increased use of cell phones has brought about serious concerns regarding the probable health hazards. This is because mobile phones use electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range.
Maximum Power Transmit
ØThe Federal Communications Commission sets specific absorption rate “SAR” standard which is acceptable power radiation for cell phones must not exceed 1.6 W/KG
ØThe lower the SAR the better the phone, from a potential health hazard
There are three way to found SAR
1.From the user manual of your mobile phone.
2.Visit mobile manufacturers forum web site and select your mobile phone model http://www.mmfai.info/public/sar.cfm
3.Enter Federal Communications Commission website and Write your mobile FCC ID Number in the FCC ID http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/
Thermal Effect of Cell Phones
Heat generated on the face by 15 minutes of cell phone use due to their electromagnetic radiation
Radiation Penetration in the head of an adult, ten-year and five-year old
When radiation hits the head, it penetrates the skull. The pictures above are the result of an experiment show how radiation penetrates the skull of an adult (25%), 10 year old (50%) and a 5 year old (75%). The younger the child the deeper the penetration due to the fact their skulls are thinner and their brains contain more fluid than adults’. Radio frequencies travel through children’s brains much more easily and therefore increase the risk of cancer.
Consider the following when using your mobile phone
It is not only the choice of phone, but how you use it that is important when you want to control the amount of radiation you are exposed to. Here you will find a few simple tips that can considerably reduce radiation and therefore also health risks.
Use a handsfree set
The further away from your body the phone is, the less radiation you are exposed to. Using a hands-free set is the easiest way to radically reduce the amount of radiation you are exposed to if you use a mobile phone.
Hold it at the bottom
By covering large areas of the phone with your hand, you reduce its ability to send and receive signals. The phone then increases its power and transmits stronger radiation to compensate this. So hold the phone as far down as possible, so it can operate at low power.
Get in the best position
You can see the signal reception strength in the display. When reception is good, the phone reduces power and radiation. If reception is poor, the phone uses maximum power and radiation.
Don’t talk too long and Use regular phone if possible
The radiation you are exposed to is directly related to the time you spend talking on your phone. For linger calls it is safer “and cheaper” to call from a regular phone.
Hazardous areas of use
ØDon’t use a mobile phone while driving a car. Stop at a safe place and talk.
ØDon’t use your mobile phone in places where there is a lot of electrical equipment, such as hospitals and aircraft.
ØDon’t bathe with your mobile phone.
ØDon’t let small children talk on your mobile phone for long periods. They are more susceptible than adults.
