Kurtosis is a statistical method which can be used to measure abnormality in a reading including measurement of Radio Frequency Inteference (RFI) levels on potential radio astronomical sites. The chosen sites were Jelebu, Behrang and Merang. The RFI surveys were done for hydroxyl spectral line windows (1600–1700 MHz). The simple kurtosis method used in this work has found that a higher kurtosis value indicated a less RFI affected site. The kurtosis values for the three chosen sites were 10.04, 7.94, and 5.89, respectively. For the overall spectrum (0–3Ghz), their kurtosis value were 5.22, 4.02 and 3.70, respectively. In both cases, the kurtosis values have been shown to be a good indicator of the levels of RFI at the chosen sites.
