Sprint NY61XC174B Page 3 of 14
On January 10, 2009, Pinnacle Telecom Group (“PTG”) performed on-sitemeasurements of radiofrequency (RF) levels associated with a Sprint wirelessbase station antenna operation located at 5411 Amboy Road, Staten Island, NY.The site is the Our Lady Star of the Sea School and Church. Sprint refers to thesite by the code “NY61XC174B” and its directional panel antennas are mountedon the roof of the gymnasium area of the school.The purpose of the measurements was to assess and document compliance withthe applicable Federal Communications Commission (FCC) limit for maximumpermissible exposure (MPE) of the general public to the RF emissions fromantennas.Measurements were performed on the school grounds as well as inside theschool. The equipment used to perform the measurements automaticallyregisters the effects from all RF sources in the area, not just the Sprint antennas.The results of the measurements – expressed as simple percentages of the FCCMPE limit – were as follows:
On the school grounds, the highest measured RF level was 1.5 percent ofthe FCC MPE limit; in other words, the highest RF level is 66 times belowthe FCC limit.
Inside the school, the highest measured RF level was 2.5 percent of theFCC MPE limit; in other words, the highest RF level is 40 times below theFCC limit.The results of the measurements demonstrate compliance with the FCC limit. Inaddition, an “on/off” test was performed to assess whether the RF effects fromthe Sprint antennas were incrementally significant. The result of that testdemonstrated that there were no measurable differences in the RF levels withthe Sprint transmitters turned “on” versus turned “off”.
