The greatly increased use of the radio-frequency spectrum above 300 megacycles since World War II made necessary a re-examination of the interference problem. Not only may interference occur between equipments and services operating at these high frequencies, but also interference may be caused by equipments operating at lower frequencies with appreciable harmonic radiation above 300 megacycles. In particular, electromagnetic radiation from radio-frequency industrial, scientific and medical equipments may cause interference to communication services above 300 megacycles. In order to eliminate objectionable interference, the Federal Communications Commission, after collaboration with manufacturers and users of such equipment, established certain regulations including limits of permissible radiation. Conformance with these regulations requires that field intensity measurements be made. At the present time, measurement standards above 300 megacycles are in the process of development. There are no commercially available field intensity meters with which measurements can be made at frequencies higher than 1000 megacycles. Until the development of standard methods and equipment has been completed, there is a need for a uniform practice for the measurement of field intensities above 300 megacycles

No Active Projects
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
No Inactive-Reserved Standards
