DIG DEEPER: Here’s a helpful FAQ handout from ARRL: http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Technology/RFsafetyCommittee/RFXFAQ.pdf  This PDF includes a link to an online RF Exposure calculator.

EVEN DEEPER: RF Exposure and You, a 316-page book published by ARRL, is available for free download here: http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Technology/RFsafetyCommittee/RF+Exposure+and+You.pdf

The ARRL’s notice about the rules change is here: http://www.arrl.org/news/updated-radio-frequency-exposure-rules-become-effective-on-may-3

ARRL also suggests this 1998 article about RF Safety at Field Day: http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Technology/tis/info/pdf/9906048.pdf  Some info may need to be updated due to the new rules, but this provides a good description about how to perform the site evaluation.
