RF-Xs Mode

Without sound, you’re flying in the clouds, blind to the digital sound signatures and only guided by what in most cases are meaningless numbers.

On-site EMF mitigation professionals will always first sound out an RF environment to get an indication of what they are dealing with before diving in for a closer look. Often the sound alone is enough to identify and resolve the main RF issues. 

Natural Background Levels

The objective is to get our RF (Radio Frequency) environments down as close as possible to our natural background levels without breaking the bank or spending countless hours researching the topic. You have two effective methods to identify multiple wireless emitting sources in a home or office. One is to use a real-time RF spectrum analyzer with a directional antenna. This method is highly accurate but complex in its operation and very expensive. The second method, the most cost-effective and easy one, is using an RF sound-equipped broadband meter to achieve our goal.

Resolving Issues With Sound

After working remotely with Mito Meter users over the past four years, I found the improved RF-Xs sound signature mode the most helpful addition to the 2021 Mito Meter MRx line-up. Even newbies with no previous experience or knowledge of EMFs found themselves quickly identifying and resolving their issues without having to pay professionals to routinely do it for them. 

Pictured above is just one example of where RF-Xs Mode can assist in testing low-output Wi-Fi setups. Once you have lowered your Wi-Fi power and beacon rate, you can quickly listen to see if your adjustments were successful and if the Wi-Fi is transmitting far lower amounts of peak microwave radiation. (Also see RF-X6 Mode Here.)

Wi-Fi Beacon & Bandwidth

In the above picture, the low Netgear setting is running beacon intervals @1000 milliseconds, up from 100ms. (1 beacon per second vs 10 per second.) Modem/routers out of the box are running 2.4GHz and 5/6GHz channels at full power at the higher beacon rates, which is a total overkill for most installations. I recommend limiting the modem’s bandwidth to 20 MHz, from 40-160MHz, and only using one channel if you are casing the lowest of low radiation levels. These adjustments will effectively downgrade a Wi-Fi 6/6E modem/router to perform like Wi-Fi 4, which will not phase most users.

Custom Safetech Integrators

Note that to maximize wireless performance and capitalize on today’s Wireless Access Points (WAPs) functionality for multiple users in large venues or homes while at the same time keeping radiation levels in check with your local Building Biology consultant’s recommended guidelines, you can have a Mito approved custom integrator design a suitable system for you.

The key is to have as many devices hardwired as possible. Just be sure Ethernet runs or cables connected to devices that come into contact with the body are free from excessive electric fields and EMI. The LFE Mode on the Mito Meter will tell you if your hardwired setup is grounded correctly. Require help? Contact our tech support Here)
