Radio Frequency Reader available to public

The District of Metchosin has a Radio Frequency Reader (HF35C) available to members of the public who are interested in measuring Radio Frequency "RF" Waves in their immediate environment.

The use of Radio Frequency "RF" Wave technology plays an integral part in our daily lives.  As AC Electric fields and AC Magnetic fields approach higher frequencies, the fields become airborne and in this condition become Radio Waves.  Microwaves are simply higher frequency radio waves.  RF Waves are used to convey information from one place to another through the air.  They are used in mobile communication, radio and television broadcasts, radar and satelight navigation and  are a significant part of what we recognize today as an international communication infrastructure. 

If you are interested in the use of the Radio Frequency Meter, please contact the municipal hall at 250-474-3167.

Please note:  there is a refundable $100 deposit fee required to sign out the Radio Frequency Meter.
