PRINCIPAL CONCLUSIONS OF U.S. EXPERTS

--MEASUREMENTS OF RADIATION LEVELS TAKEN BY US SPECIALISTS IN U.S. EMBASSY MOSCOW OVER PERIOD OF SEVERAL MONTHS INDICATE THAT EMBASSY IS RECEIVING TWO RADIATION BEAMS OF MICROWAVE ENERGY IN THE FREQUENCY RANGE ABOVE ONE GIGAHERZ. ONE COMES FROM A POINT TO THE EAST OF THE CHANCERY AND THE OTHER FROM A POINT TO THE SOUTH.

--THESE EMANATIONS ARE PRESENT, EITHER ALTERNATELY OR OCCASIONALLY SIMULTANEOUSLY, FOR PERIODS APPROXIMATING 18 HOURS PER DAY.

--THESE BEAMS HAVE RESULTED IN RADIATION DENSITIES WITHIN CHANCERY OFFICES AND SOME APARTMENTS OF PERSONNEL RANGING FROM 1 TO 15 MICROWATTS PER SQUARE CENTIMETER.

--JOINT MEASUREMENTS CONDUCTED WITH SOVIET EXPERTS ON JANUAYR 28,

WHEN ONLY ONE OF THE PREVIOUSLY DETECTED SOURCES WAS EMITTING IN THE LOWER ENERGY RANGE OBSERVED PREVIOUSLY, WERE CONSISTENT WITH PREVIOUS U.S. MEASUREMENTS. IN PARTICULAR THEY CLEARLY REVEALED THE DIRECTIONALITY OF THE BEAM FROM THE EAST.

--THE LEVELS OF RADIATION IN THE EMBASSY BUILDING MEASURED OVER TIME BY U.S. TECHNICIANS, AND THOSE MEASURED JOINTLY WITH SOVIET TECHNICIANS, ARE SEVERAL ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE ABOVE THE TYPICAL BACKGROUND LEVEL IN U.S. CITIES, AND ALSO ABOVE THE BACKGROUND LEVEL MEASURED IN U.S. RESIDENCES IN MOSCOW WHICH ARE AWAY FROM THE CHANCERY BUILDING.

--OUR MEDICAL EXPERTS ARE OF THE CONSIDERED OPINION THAT PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO MICROWAVE RADIATION AT THE LEVELS MEASURED IN THE U.S. EMBASSYCONSTITUTE A POTENTIAL HEALTH HAZARD.

--NO LEVEL OF RADIATION IN THE U.S. EMBASSY WHICH IS SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE THE TYPICAL BACKGROUND LEVEL IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS OF LARGE INDUSTRIAL CITIES IS ACCEPTABLE TO US.
