Safety regulations with 802.11a 5GHz antenna

What are the safety regulations regarding the proximity of a 5GHz antenna (AP1200) to a person? For 802.11b, I've seen 20cm, other times 2 metres.

Thanks!

Re: Safety regulations with 802.11a 5GHz antenna

The distance would depend on the actual antenna. The stronger the antenna the further away from the human body it would need to be. For the 5GHz it would be 7.9 inches (20cm). Here is the data sheet for the 1200 series. http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wireless/airo1200/accsspts/12rupgrd.htm#xtocid18
