Anyone have any information from personal experience, or someone else's, using an unshielded dummy load and/or an unshielded balun near a person with an implanted pacemaker? I have lots of information from Medtronic on possible EMI effects, but it tends to be mostly about distance from hand carried antennas. I am concerned about a kW or so at 1.8 to 28 MHz into a dummy load in the ATU three feet from the pacemaker-equipped operator pulsing CW.
