The article provides information related to the relationship between radio frequency (RF) field intensity and signal level. While field intensity refers to the intensity level of the signal at a given distance from the radiating antenna, signal level is achieved by adding or subtracting the antenna factor in decibel per minute (dB/m). The formula for converting between field intensity and signal level across antenna terminals is presented.
