Abstract: The massive use of mobile phone, as a communication tool nowadays, is accompanied the ever increasing interest of the public and researchers for the possibly impact on human health, as a result of exposure to the electromagnetic fields that accompany these devices. Therefore knowing the level of exposure electromagnetic fields of this electronic equipment has been and will be in the future interest object to the public, and the subject of study for the researchers. In this paper are presents the results of measurements of electromagnetic fields for the frequencies 900 MHz - 1800 MHz, used in mobile telephone in Tirana. These frequencies are included in the area radio frequency (RF) and Microwave (MW) (300 Hz - 300 GHz), in the spectrum of electromagnetic waves and belong to non-ionizing radiation. The measurements were performed in different areas of Tirana. The purpose is to assess the level of exposure electromagnetic fields, especially near areas where mobile antennas are mounted, construction of dynamic digital mapping and comparison with the permitted levels of the exposure defined by the International Commission of Non Ionizing Radiation Protection ICNIRP. Through this publication the aim of the authors is to provide real information and reliable for the population.
