The nature o f communication base stations entails t he emission of non - ionizing radiation due to the presence of transmitting and receiving antennas mounted on them. When the values of charges are varied harmonically with time, antenna tend to release energy, which is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the antenna. Several government regulates the level of energy that an antenna can release to the environment. This study attempts to assess the compliance of communication providers with regulations and the underlying health impli cations of the variation in radiations with respect to distance from different base stations. Furthermore, the work adopted mathematical methods to analyze the radiation pattern around base stations from different communication networks. The study revealed the pr esence of high radiation level from all the base station in the stud ied area. Therefore , H - field tool is critical to radiation measurement from the RF base station because of its simplicity . The study concluded that agencies of government should put in pla ce information and awareness - raising campaigns on the risks of potentially harmful long - term biological effects on the environment and on human health of radiation, especially targeting children, teenagers and y oung people of reproductive age.
