The electric field induced in the body of a man standing on the metal deck of a ship near a vertical antenna is determined analytically. Typical antennas for radio communication in the 1-30 MHz band are described and their near fields are calculated. The current induced in the man is determined by solving the relevant integral equation. Explicit formulas are obtained for the total axial current and the associated current densities and electric fields.
