Can folks please post images of their EMF-3** picking up 5G cell radiation, mainly the high band. I'm curious what I need to look for.
Thanks! ~J (EMF-390/GMC-300E)

Hi JVonD,

Sorry. Nobody will be able to post images of this meter picking up 5G high band, because it cannot do so. 5G high band uses frequencies of 24 GHz or 28 GHz and up depending on who you ask. The EMF-3** meters only go up to 8 GHz or 10 GHz. They will not pick up 5G high band signals. As far as I know, there is no affordable consumer meter available that will, and even most professional meters don't. Having said that, 5G high band signals are fairly limited right now, and are usually short range high speed signals. You might find them on the main streets in the center of a city, for example. Much of 5G operates in low and mid band. These signals should be readable by the EMF-3** meters, just like regular 3G and 4G cellular signals, and will be visible on the RF explorer screen. Many of those signals are in the .6 GHz - 3.5 GHz range. Note that the spectrum analyzer screen does NOT respond between 1.04 GHz and 2.4 GHz Nor does it respond above 2.5 GHz. But, you should be able to get a signal level reading or a visual representation of any group of signals below 8 GHz or 10 GHz depending on the model of the meter. I'm sure the meter has a lower frequency limit too, but I don't know what that is. Most likely all cellular signals are above the meter's lower frequency limit. Point the meter at any active cell tower within 1/2 mile or so and you can see what those look like in RF browser mode. I don't think there would be any visual difference between 3G and 4G and 5G signals, but I don't know that for certain. There may be 3G, 4G, and 5G signals mixed in on the same tower. One thing that there probably will be related to 5G is MORE cell towers, including hidden micro cell towers, which may look like part of a building, a lamp post, or even a mailbox. And, those more cell towers will be emitting MORE signals. So, you need to be concerned about your overall level of exposure and the amount of time of your exposure. If you can easily see a cell tower, or if you're near one that's hidden, you're probably too close.

Here's a cool 5G article:

See my other forum thread that I posted for lots more info on how to use the meter and how to take readings and what they mean.
