Greetings to all,

I have bought a meter called Tes 92. I bought it just of curiosity since I live approx. 300 meters from a large mast.
Now I am a bit confused after reading some posts here when it comes to units and how to measure correctly.

If I select microW/sqm I get a reading of 000.5 but if I change unit to
mV/m i get between 12.1-22.5 depending on location in the apartment.

Are the readings OK ?

Tes 02

Units of Measure: Measures field strength in microwatts per centimeter squared (W/cm), microwatts per meter squared (W/m), microamps per meter (A/m) or millivolts per meter (mV/m).

Sensitivity: Detects field strength as low as 0.001 W/cm, 0.1 W/m, 0.1 A/m and 0.1 mV/m.

Just checking
Was the 0.0005 reading actually in W/cm units?
If so, then you need to by 10,000 to get W/m

0.0005 W/cm = 5 W/m

12.1 mV/m = 0.012 V/m
22.5 mV/m = 0.022 V/m

You might look here:
Conversion between V/m and W/m2 for continuous (CW) signals

http://www.gigahertz-solutions.com/en/Online-Shop/Measurement/High-Frequency/Instrume nts/HF35C.html
click on manual and then go to page 40 of the downloaded pdf
it gives a table to convert between mV/m and W/m.
