Abstract

The effect of radiation on human and animal alike has been discussed extensively in several research articles. Here, methods and tools applied were not thoroughly elaborated. In the situation where information is given, the availability of the tools used poses severe challenges. This paper presents the effect of electromagnetic radiation on animals using G-Net Tracklite software and a locally designed temperature logger. The electromagnetic spectrum covers radio waves, ultraviolet, infrared, visible light, X-rays and Gamma rays. The radio signal used in this paper is between 900MHz to 1800MHz and the signal received was computed with the use of G-NetTrack Lite software. Temperature logger is designed as an alternative source of temperature measurement. A mobile phone is placed near the rabbit housing and calls are subsequently made to the phone. The rabbit was exposed to electromagnetic radiation 8 hours a day for 21 days with an average signal power of -95.69dB.

The studies show that excessive exposure of rabbit to electromagnetic radiation results in fatigue, tiredness, and weight loss. This leads to financial loss by the farmer and as well threatens the animal protein food security of the Nation.
