The knowledge of the electromagnetic (EM) field
distribution in the vicinity of cellular systems and
broadcasting antenna systems is significant due to its
effect on electronic devices and human health. In this
paper, we have developed a new algorithm for the
attenuation and the radiation patterns of electromagnetic
waves in the inhabited areas. Electric field strengths were
calculated at the far-field location of different types of
antennas operating at the same frequencies, including the
perfect conducted ground reflections. Then, we enhanced
our study, assuming that the antennas were positioned on
dry and wet ground unlike the previous studies and
compared to the effects of different types of grounds.
Using our developed study, it is possible to calculate the
contributions of direct and reflected waves, separately.
Thus it is also possible to minimize the effects of
interferences, disturbances, and bioeffects of
electromagnetic radiation before placing the antennas.
