An environmental survey for base stations of third generation DAMPS, DCS-1800, and UMTS cellular technology was performed for the largest cellular communications company in Israel - Cellcom Israel. The survey details potential environmental effects for man, ordnance, medical, aviation and industrial electronics and radiation hazards for fuel and chemicals. This paper cover risk subjects that include human exposure, ordnance, fuel and electronics. Regarding safety ranges for human exposure, the survey indicates the following. For a quantity of 23 transmitters in the sector of a DAMPS base station, the safety range at the antenna altitude level is 7 meters. In combining all possible transmitters without channel expansion, including DAMPS, DCS-1800 and UMTS, the safety range at the antenna altitude level is 7-m. When the DAMPS channels are expanded from 16 to 23 channels and the DCS-1800 is expanded from 4 transmitters to 6 transmitters, the safety range in relation to all transmitters increases to 8.2 m.
