The data accumulated by now shows that the topic of biological effects of electromagnetic radiation is far from being exhausted. Is undoubtedly that a non-ionizing radiation field maintained on a biological entity has some effects on it. To try shaping issues regarding this, this work aims to study the impact of radiation generated by an emission-reception radio station that emits on 462.6875 MHz frequency. For this purpose, were used Hippophae rhamnoides L. seeds which germinated in the laboratory, under controlled conditions, concentrically arranged around the radiation source, in which case electromagnetic radiation has a different impact. Seed germination lasted 35 days, while the device has continuously worked, and the seeds were constantly irradiated. The intensity of the magnetic component of the field was precisely measured in all places where the seeds were placed for germination. It was calculated the percentage of germination and it was determined the peroxidase activity involved in eliminating the oxidative stress effects. Accordingly to the distance from the source, significant variations of the parameters mentioned above in conjunction with the radiation intensity were found
