Recommended Practice for an Electromagnetic Site Survey (10 kHz to 40 GHz)

This recommended practice sets the framework for performing an Electromagnetic (EM) Site Survey in the frequency range of 10 kHz to 40 GHz. The EM Site Survey is intended to be a systematic, documented investigation of the measurable characteristics of the electromagnetic fields at one or more frequencies and locations as necessary during a designated time period, which yields results that are interpretable and communicable among subsequent investigators.

IEEE Recommended Practice for an Electromagnetic Site Survey (10 kHz to 10 GHz)

Guidelines for the systematic, documented investigation of the amplitudes of RF electromagnetic fields found at one or more locations with respect to frequency, time, and position are provided. Periodic and random radiated electric and magnetic fields and conducted interference within the frequency range of 10 kHz to 10 GHz are considered. Although several aspects of radio-emission investigation are not addressed directly, including signal identification and discrimination; field emissions from regularly occurring, low-frequency, pulsed sources; and test enclosure fields, much information pertinent to these areas is provided.
