I have a co-worker who is considering a move to a new
home.  The house he's looking at is within a 1/2 mile
of a cell tower that is approx. 75-100 ft.  His wife
is raising concerns over RF exposure. 

Since I'm no expert in microwave (or any other RF
subject for that matter!), I told him that I would ask
a few questions of the group.  

1. What sort of exposure would someone have at that
distance?  What are typical power numbers from cell
sites?  Would there really be any significant RF at
the house's location?

2. Is there some kind of cheap way that they could
take field strength readings around the house that
would give them a feel for their exposure?  I realize
that some kind of receiver would work, but they want a
simple scheme, be it something they borrow or buy, or
be it from someone doing the survey using their own

Thanks for any help.  He wants to put his wife's
worries to rest fairly soon.
