      The use of the hybrid method of moments/finite difference time domain technique can be effective for solution of electromagnetic problems which are intractable for a single numerical method. Using this method, a study of the effects of human proximity on the polarisation purity of different types of circularly-polarised handset antennas for personal satellite communications was undertaken. Associated with this, assessments of the specific absorption rate in the head were made. The method gave stable results, in accordance with physical expectations; good agreement with the pure method of moments was shown in simplified cases omitting the head
