    I am a ham radio operator. I want to have a hive but the only place to put it is within 10' or closer to my antenna. Will the RF emissions cause any problems with the bees??

    It depends on the frequency and the power of the signals. A frequency that is harmonic with major body parts is the largest concern. That's why 2m and 70cm is something to be careful of for us humans

    I wouldn't be concerned unless you were doing UHF and Microwaves at more than 10w. Though I really don't like radio signals that much, they scare me a little. I am a qrp person. Never did more than 100W for HF and not more than 10W for 2m/70cm. Did lots of microwave in the mW ranges.

    Looks like we have several HAM RADIO OPERATORS that are BeeKeepers.
