The great development of wireless communication technology has caused much concern about the possible adverse effects of electromagnetic field exposure on human health. A special type of such emissions is the rotating pulsed signals, such as civil aviation approach Radars, often situated close to residential areas. This paper describes a dedicated remote control software developed in order to automate the measurement procedures together with the evaluation of the relevant electromagnetic radiation. The great benefit of this software is that random errors caused by the personnel employed in the measurement procedure are avoided. The remote communication with the measurement system consists of a traditional spectrum analyzer (SA) and a rotating dipole antenna, whereas the post processing of the measurement data is done using two Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) developed in MATLAB. The setup of the SA is performed using Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments and Virtual Instrument Software Architecture.
