For more than 35 years, Microwave News has been reporting on the potential health and environmental impacts of electromagnetic fields and radiation. We are widely recognized as a fair and objective source of information on this controversial subject.
Microwave News covers the entire non-ionizing electromagnetic spectrum, with emphasis on mobile phones and power lines, as well as radar and broadcast towers. In addition, we cover medical applications of different types of fields and radiation, as well as the ability of various species to navigate using the Earth’s magnetic field.
The first print issue was published in January 1981. All our print issues may be downloaded from the News Center at no cost.
In June 2003, Microwave News converted to a Web-based format.
