A health survey was carried out in Murcia, Spain, in the vicinity of a cellular phone basestation working in DCS-1800 MHz. This survey contained health items related to ³microwave sickness² or ³RF syndrome.²

The microwave power density was measured at the respondents' homes. Statistical analysis showed significant correlation between the declared severity of the symptoms and the measured power density. The separation of respondents into two different exposure groups also showed an increase of the declared severity in the group with the higher exposure.
