Hi again,

When I switch WiFi on, on my phone, after about 3-4 seconds I see a pulse of anything between 80 and 130 mW/m2, ... and then it settles down to spikes of around 5 or up to 20 or 30.

Sensor is about 2.5 inches from the phone.

It seems strange, that this initial pulse/spike is significantly higher (e.g., 130 is 6.5x more than 20, or 26x more than 5).

Is this a glitch/error in the sensor, e.g., is the RF sensor more sensitive if it hasn't detected anything for a while?

Or is my phone actually emitting a higher powered pulse when WiFi is switched on?

Was just curious as it seems kind of interesting and strange for the phone to do that...

Also, it doesn't seem to do it every time either. So it's hard for me to replicate. But several times now I have seen it spike at around 130, which seems extra-ordinarily high, does it not?

Thanks :)

It might be because initializing connections use more power.
