The chairman PTA Dr Mohammed Yasin directed PTA to collaborate with PTA LogoFAB (Frequency Allocation Board) to check the power omission from transmitters and BST’s (Base Station Transceivers). The survey was conducted in 11 major cities of Pakistan including Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Faisalabad, Mirpur, Muzzafarabad, Quetta, Abbotabad, Rawalpindi, Hyderabad and AJK (Azad Jammu and Kashmir). Special tools were used to check that whether frequency and power emissions are as per directions or not. The result of survey depicted that power omissions in BST’s is quite less than the limits set by ICNRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) and WHO (World Health Organization).  The survey was carried out because of extensive health threats posed by harmful radiations emitted by transmitters and other industry specific equipment. PTA says it will constantly scrutinize the power omission levels to ensure safety.
