Hello Peter,

From Peter G3PLX:
Marek:

The 'rash' or 'burning' effect makes me think of sunburn or exposure to ultra-violet light.
Could it be that there is some ionisation, perhaps due to high
voltages, which gives off UV radiation which could affect the skin of
the face if it's directly in front of the operator? It would be easy
to test this idea by operating the equipment in a low light level and
probing the area with a some object that was known to be fluorescent,
like a UV-sensitive marker pen.
I thought about something connected with the high voltage as well -
maybe high electrostatic field etc. I didn't know that ionisation may
cause UV radiation. I will check the idea, placing a banknote near the
coil output ;)
The UV idea makes sense, the rash appeared on the side of my face being
in direct 'exposure' to the coil, not at the side of the transmitter.
