I came across these broadcasting vans recently in London.
The antenna that's deployed I think is a Vislink Advent uplink antenna, similar to this model, designed to transmit to satellites for television broadcasting.
The antenna wasn't pointing directly at the building on the right, but close enough (the cylindrical beam from the antenna would have passed approximately 2-3 meters from the front edge of the building) to make me wonder about radiofrequency exposure to the building.
My questions are:
- How much peripheral scatter occurs with these antennas?
- Would transmitting in this configuration raise any RF exposure concerns (a) to the building, (b) to the pavement to the right?
- Hypothetically, what would the RF exposure be from direct exposure to the beam?
