Studies are described which demonstrate the presence of microwave radiation levels exceeding the present national safety standards in the vicinity of several common microwave-excited source configurations. Since the various pathological effects of microwave energy are not fullly understood, shielding considerations and on-site radiation surveys are recommended.
