IMO not relevant. I was routinely exposed to .8 to 1.6 Tesas and experienced no tingling of skin. I did develop AML leukemia, so my self imposed distance of safety was more than erroneous. I had to build a Faraday cage sandwich of expanded metal and 1700 lbs of copper milling shavings as a shield. The emitter consumed a max of 7 amperes three phase at 440 vac, and I blundered into the throttling mechanism at a subsequent Skunk Works Auction. The two ton emitter had For Parts Use Only labels all over it. It was used for proving pulsed EMF desulfation of flooded lead acid batteries. I had failed to acknowledge the importance of machine shielding. What lockheed used it for I have no idea. The machines disappeared with the liquidation of my personal property. Not a fun part of my life.

(Proven not theory)

Create an inductor coil of 300 ft wire length at 18 inches diameter inline with overhead line transmission wires which are three phase. Orientation alignment is sensitive. If you draw power from the wire loops you are stealing power from the utility under California law. Power would range from twenty watts on a vague scale due to transmission voltage, distance to the emitters, etc.

Hope This Suppresses.

As a Power Plant Operator I was 'exposed' daily for 12 hours
Then I went home and got bombarded some more

For a number of years now, work has been proceeding in order to bring perfection to the crudely conceived idea of a transmission that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Such an instrument is the turbo encabulator.

Now basically the only new principle involved is that instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, it is produced by the modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive diractance.

The original machine had a base plate of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the panametric fan. The latter consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzlevanes, so fitted to the ambifacient lunar waneshaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented.

The main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots of the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible tremie pipe to the differential girdle spring on the “up” end of the grammeters.

The turbo-encabulator has now reached a high level of development, and it’s being successfully used in the operation of novertrunnions. Moreover, whenever a forescent skor motion is required, it may also be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocation dingle arm, to reduce sinusoidal repleneration.

I had a similar experience and I always thought it was a Magnetic Field inducing a voltage on the vehicle. It has taken me many years to realize the voltage on the vehicle was because of the capacitive coupling in the Electric Field surrounding the transmission line. It has only been very recent that I ever heard of someone feeling a slight tingle in an RV from a 120VAC Electric Field. Hence my motivation for this thread. Thank you for your contribution.

Properly designed (and TESTED) electrical equipment does not create enough EMF to interfere with other electrical equipment.

I have spoken with people who HAVE encounter EMF (also called radio frequency (RF) interference). One was very near an extremely powerful antenna array. Another was a trucker using an illegal amplifier on a CB radio.


Yes, that is exposure to Magnetic Fields which has been widely studied. The reason for my post was to highlight "Electric Fields" and the physics of capacitance. No, I never thought for a minute Electric Fields were causing any harm OTHER THEN the "For example" link at the bottom of my OP. Thank you for your input.

If I am correct:

milliGauss is a measure of Magnetic Fields, and
newtons per coulomb is a measure of Electric Fields.

Dr Google says:

"1 farad is the capacitance of a capacitor that has charge of 1 coulomb when applied voltage drop of 1 volt."
AND
"The SI unit of electric field strength is newtons per coulomb (N/C) or volts per meter (V/m)."

I always thought that Farads were billboards way off in the distance. [emoticon]

I wasn't feeling anything the inside the RV. This only happened when outside and touching the outer metal of the RV... A very slight tingle...
