— In this paper, radiation of base stations (BSs) in different installation types was measured in order to determine how the electromagnetic pollution level is affected by the installation types of them. Measurements were carried out on 8 BSs in Konya, Turkey. Additionally, a survey including 10 questions was applied to Selçuk University students (334 people) to show how informed about radiation of mobile phones and BSs they are. As a result of measurements, the maximum radiations from BSs were observed at an apartment across BS on a tower, and at an apartment across BS on an apartment, respectively. Yet, the most of mobile phone users participating in the survey believes that a BS on their apartment roof has more radiation than the others.
