The AN/TLQ-17 is a countermeasures set designed to identify, locate,
Frequency: 1.5 20 MHz
Power: 550 W max
and disrupt enemy command and control communications. This

antenna mounted on a mast or whip antenna.
HAZARD CONTROLS (to reduce or eliminate risk)
Power Density Levels (PDL) ....
This system is not able to produce potentially hazardous PDLs in excess of the safety
standard in the HF Band. This system is able to produce potentially hazardous PDLs in
excess of the safety standard in the VHF Band. Establish a Nonionizing Radiation
Protection Program (IAW guidelines provided in this TB) .
Hazard distance from antenna ....
Exclude personnel to a distance of 5 m from the front of the LP antenna (VHF) and 2 m
from the VHF whip antenna.
