Professional Level Features:
Accurate Peak Measurements provide invaluable information for the layperson or technician who needs to assess potential biological impacts at an RF contaminated site. The HFE35C equipped with the "Quasi" Isotropic Antenna, takes biological assessment one step further. The Ultra Broadband "Quasi" Isotopic Antenna has the ability to assimilate and read the RF exposure conditions typical for a human body. A measurement taken with this equipment provides a 360 degree RF exposure snap shot.
- Equipped with Two Antennas - enhanced circuitry for use with the Ultra Broadband Omni-Directional UBB27 Antenna(Boosted Frequency Range of 27 MHz– 2.7 GHz) and the directional Logarithmic – Periodic Antenna designed to make source identification simple and efficient. Readings increase when the antenna is pointed in the direction of or moved closer to offending sources (Frequency Range of 800 MHz to 2.7 GHz).
- Detects both analogue and pulsed digital signals (1 – 1999 µW/m²)
- Detects RF radiation generated by cellular phone and cordless phones (DECT); microwave ovens; Radar; wireless communication devices (such as internet routers, WLAN, Wi-Fi, baby monitors, Bluetooth, video games); smart meters; cell phone towers in the operational range of 27 MHz @ 2.7 GHz with the UBB27 antenna (GSM, UMTS, 2G, 3G, 4G)
- In addition the UBB27 Antenna detects RF radiation generated by FM Radio; Amateur Radio; Digital & Analog TV
- Audio Signal Analysis replicates the patterns and intensity of measured RF emissions
- Detects Full RF signal comprised of both analogue digital signals and pulsed digital signals
- Coarse (0 – 1999 µW/m²) and Fine (0 – 199.9 µW/m²) Range Options. A Fine range option provides added value when needing accurate assessment of weaker signals
- Peak and Average Settings: While measurements taken on the Average Value setting provide a basic impression of RF levels at a test site, the Peak Value setting reveals the highest levels of RF being emitted. The Peak Value is regarded as the measurement critical to assessing potential biological effects.

This is a solid device and gives meaningful readings to help me and my family reduce our exposure to radio frequencies.
I have a Safe and Sound Pro II which I use all the time for regular inspections. However, the HFE35C (with directional antenna) is much more precise - to within an inch of the RF entry point! I had shielded my bedroom but still wasn't getting the reduction in RF that I was looking for. I thought buying the HFE35C would be a "luxury" purchase - it wasn't, it turned out to be a necessity. Plenty of "ah ha" moments when inspecting the bedroom first time with the HFE35C (e.g., RF sneaking in via some sections of window casing). The UBB27 antenna provides a very clear reading of total RF exposure. It is also good for evaluating total exposure in hot spots, prior to using the directional antenna to pinpoint location of RF entry. If the context for the room that you are trying to shield is complex (i.e., 7 cell towers within 1 km, 30+ wifi, radar, etc - from all directions / sources - floor, ceiling, walls, windows, HVAC vents) you may want to invest in a directional meter. I absolutely love this meter! I feel like a kid at Christmas time!
