WHAT’S UP AT OUR HOUSE

As most of our readers know, they are currently installing smart meters in the Rogue Valley. You also know they are a horrible invasion into personal privacy and the basic human right to a peaceful existence. Tom and I live in a mobile home park, so even though we opted-out (in spite of the illegal fees), we are surrounded by the new meters.

I am highly sensitive to radiowave/microwave frequencies, more so than Tom. We hired Eric Windham, an EMF expert from Sacramento, to evaluate our home in terms of exposure and shielding. As a result, Tom put large pieces of aluminum screening over all the windows and doors. This method is working, almost. We are safe in the house, but not outside.

The big issue is that we do not know when the meters are going to pulse or at what strength. Most of the pulses have been on the lower scale. However, they are not all low. For example:

Last night at 11:30 p.m., I opened my bedroom window and looked out. Just at that moment, a burst/pulse of “something wi-fi” came through the shielding screen and hit me in the face. It’s hard to describe, but it felt like I received an electrical or chemical burn to my skin, which started burning and itching. This lasted through the next day.

Along with the burst/pulse, there was a horrible smell that can only be described as “burning metal.” We don’t know if this was because the smart meter pulse hit the screening, or if it came from the actual meter. This part of the experience made me think of “Dante’s Inferno” or “the fires of hell.”

How can human beings be expected to live under such conditions? Must those of us who are sensitive live like caged animals?

AND SPEAKING OF ANIMALS: One of our cats seems to be going crazy since the meters were put up. Normally rather lazy, he is running around with a wild look in his eyes. He has also started biting us and threatening our older cat.

As you know, smart meters have been known to catch fire and even burn down houses. Many people, including us, firmly believe this was a factor in the Santa Rosa area fires last year. I thought of this as I nursed my burning face.

We’ve read that the U.S. military is experimenting with weapons based on this technology. I even read one article about how the military received permission to “practice” on animals on the Olympic Peninsula! Personally, I feel like I am already a victim. Oh dear, am I getting paranoid that I am being targeted? Maybe.

Then, today, the Mail Tribune had a story about how great it will be that we will be able log-in and view our electric bill. Is this all they can come up with to counter the horrors of smart meters?

For all the obvious readings, we are actively looking for a reasonably priced place to live off-grid, or on, within driving distance of Ashland. We are open to any and all suggestions!

RADIATION EMITTED FROM SMART METERS 100 TIMES GREATER THAN CELL PHONES – AND EXPOSURE IS CONSTANT, DOCTORS WARN.

Mike Adams (Natural News)

Energy companies are billing them as the “green” solution to traditional meters. But are so-called “smart” meters really all that smart? And, more importantly, are they really as safe as we’re all being told they are?

Some 65 million American homes already have them, and more are being converted all the time, even against the will of some homeowners. And yet many doctors agree that smart meters are a potential health threat due to constant releases of radiation.

RELATED STORY:

New cellphone study stuns scientists – completely defies expectations
Smart meters operate via a two-way communications system in which energy usage is tabulated wirelessly inside the meter and transmitted to the energy company that owns it. No longer do energy trucks have to go around town once a month to check individual meters; everything is done automatically and wirelessly. Pretty simple, right?

It might be simple in functionality, but not so much in technicality. The constant pulses of energy as smart meters communicate both with electrical appliances inside the home, and with the energy company, are a radioactive threat that’s about 100 times greater than that of a mobile phone, science has found.

This is a tremendous radioactive load when you consider that smart meters operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The fact that they never turn off means they’re a lot like talking on a cell phone constantly, without end. But, it gets even worse.

RELATED STORY:

Independent studies have revealed that both the strength and frequency of smart meter pulses make them exceptionally threatening. The Center for Electrosmog Prevention, a California nonprofit group, estimates that one smart meter emits the radiation equivalent of about 160 mobile phones. Other studies have concluded that smart meters emit not 100 but 1,000 times the radioactive load of a typical cell phone.

Daniel Hirsch, a radiation expert and instructor at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), published a paper refuting the findings of the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST), which concluded based on industry data that smart meters are safer than mobile phones. Hirsh countered that:

“… the cumulative whole body exposure from a Smart Meter at 3 feet appears to be approximately two orders of magnitude higher than that of a cell phone, rather than two orders of magnitude lower.”

Smart meter radiation is a constant threat to the health of you and your family
This is problematic, because electromagnetic pollution like the kind emitted by smart meters is highly damaging to the body. There are reports of chronic headaches, seizures, insomnia, dizziness, heart palpitations, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and other symptoms associated with exposure to smart meters.

Even the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) agrees that smart meters are a potential threat, especially to people with preexisting health conditions. The group issued a recommendation stating that:

“… no Smart Meters be [in the homes of patients with neurological or neurodegenerative diseases, genetic defects, cancer, and other conditions] and that Smart Meters be removed to a reasonable distance from patients’ homes.”

This would be great if every household that’s been given or offered a smart meter had the option to reject it. But in most cases, customers are forced to accept a smart meter in place of their traditional meter – and if they are offered the choice of an “opt-out,” it’s often with the caveat that the customer pay a monthly penalty fee.

As a conscious consumer, it’s your job, as it is mine, to get the word out about smart meters. Start informing your friends, family members and neighbors about the dangers, and work together to fight against this coercive threat to our collective health.

REPORT ABOUT THE TALENT, OREGON SMART METER MEETING

June 6, 2018:

We were genuinely surprised to read Tom Clunie’s letter to the editor in the Mail-Tribune newspaper this week. Two years ago, the editor refused to print our letters, citing “lack of scientific evidence” as to the damage caused by smart meters and other wi-fi/microwave-emitting devices. Here’s Tom’s letter:

JUST SAY NO

The Talent smart meter town hall did not go well for Pacific Power (“PP”). Electrical engineer Bill Bathgate refuted most of what PP said.

PP claimed their meters send signals only four times a day. Bill said upwards of 190,000 times per day. PP said their meters were “safe.” Bill countered that the meters are not grounded against power surges and will cause fires and explosions, as they already have elsewhere. When people brought up health concerns about pulsating microwaves in their home 24/7, PP dismissed them with, “Our stack of scientific assurances neutralizes your stack of scientific warnings.”

Bill stated our electric bills will go up because the new meters will charge us for stray voltage as well as running the meter itself. Bill said that if had brought such a defective meter to his boss during his career [as an electrical engineer] he would have been fired.

If we “opt-out,” PP intends to charge us $137 initially and $36 monthly to extort us into compliance. PP failed to demonstrate any benefit whatsoever to their customers. These meters are a health, privacy, ecological, and financial catastrophe. Just say “no!” to “smart” meters.

IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING THE PACIFIC POWER SMART METER ROLLOUT

We spoke with a representative from Pacific Power today regarding the upcoming smart meter rollout. Here’s what we learned:

If you opt-out, you will be able to retain your rotary meter.

It’s advised to send an opt-out letter to Pacific Power to be put on their opt-out list. SEE THE SAMPLE OPT-OUT LETTER BELOW. You might also get something from them in the mail soon asking if you want to opt-out. You can also call them:

888-221-7070

We were also advised that when you call, ask them how old your rotary meter is. Some of the ones in the Rogue Valley are 25 years old, or older. This will give you an idea of when you might be required to get a NON-RADIO-FREQUENCY METER.

If you opted out to keep your rotary meter, and it breaks, you will get non-radio frequency meter.

This is actually good news, because we were previously told everyone would lose their rotary meters. Perhaps they had so many people complaining that they have become a bit more reasonable.

The bad new is that you will have to pay to opt-out. The fees have been voted on and approved by the Oregon Pubic Utility Commission. If enough people call and write the PUC, perhaps the fees can be lowered. But as of now, the (outrageous) fees are:

$137 up front. This is a “deposit” against a possible future time when your meter needs to be replaced with a smart meter–likely because you moved.

Plus $37 per month, ongoing, to pay for the meter reader to come and read your meter.

After a particular area has had smart meters installed–or not–there will be a six-week interval before they activate them.

If you feel inspired to complain to the Oregon Public Utility Commission about the opt-out fees, here is their contact information:

Dear Pacific Power and all agents, officers, employees, contractors, and other interested parties:
This notice is to inform you that I want to OPT-OUT of the proposed smart meter installation currently scheduled for 2018.
Do NOT install a smart meter or other type of radio frequency electric meter at my home. These meters compromise my health and the health of my neighbors.
When the proposed rollout occurs, I specifically request that you
DO NOT REMOVE MY ANALOG METER.
Installation and use of any radio frequency or activity-monitoring device is hereby refused.

CAUTION ABOUT CALIBRATING YOUR CORNET METER

We prefer the Cornet RF meter, which you can use to determine if you are in a radio-frequency that can harm you. WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND THAT NO MATTER WHAT, YOU SLEEP IN A “GREEN ZONE.”

We always recommend you purchase your meter from Josh at:

www.stopsmartmeters.org

Before sending out new meters, Josh makes sure they are calibrated property. If they are calibrated at too low a sensitivity, you will be given a false positive. You will think you are safe in a “green zone” when in fact you are in a dangerous red zone.

It has come to our attention that other distributors are NOT calibrating meters before sending them to customers.

THEREFORE, we continue to recommend: www.stopsmartmeters.org

If you already have a Cornet meter, please read Tom’s instructions elsewhere on this website, so you can calibrate it yourself. The instructions from the company are very difficult to follow, so Tom has simplified them.

We derive no personal benefit from this endorsement, other than the fact that our fervent desire is to help people stay healthy and safe from dangerous microwave technology.

SMART METERS ARE COMING TO OREGON

This website was created in response to Pacific Power’s plan to put a smart meter on every house and business in the state in 2018. Actually, they are putting up these meters up already without specifically informing individual homeowners they’ve done it.

You can read about Pacific Power’s plan here:

http://www.pacificpower.net/ya/kyb/oregon-smart-meters.html

Be sure to note their comments about opting out, and the extra fees that will be charged. Even though they have not yet indicated what type of meter customers will get if they opt out, it’s never too soon to let them know you do not want a meter that transmits microwave frequencies.

The microwave meter that will be put on your power pole by Pacific Power will be a “smart” meter or a “radio-frequency” meter. A “smart” meter communicates directly to Pacific Power’s main office, similar to the way cell-phones communicate via cell towers. Smart meters give the company the capacity to regulate/shut off your electricity from their main office. Some believe smart meters are an invasion of privacy because of the amount of personal information they gather regarding your electrical usage.

The other type of microwave-emitting meter is called a “radio-frequency” meter. This type of meter allows Pacific Power’s human meter readers to read your meter at a distance with their handheld device. (Our meter reader told us up to five miles away.) Note that most of the meter readers in Oregon will lose their jobs when the new meters are rolled out. Either way, you will be subject to pulsating microwaves 24/7. So far we have been unsuccessful in getting Pacific Power to tell us what the strengths and frequencies of these different meters will be.

The meter two doors down from our house pulses every 30 seconds, resulting in headaches and dizziness if we spend more than 15 minutes in our backyard.

We were told that if we opt-out of receiving a smart meter, we will be given a radio-frequency meter, and that this type of meter is totally safe. However, we know from our own experience that it is NOT SAFE, and that they produce a harmful effect on our health and well-being.

We believe these microwave frequencies (particularly pulsating), which are emitted 24-hours a day, are dangerous to the human body. Health problems are being reported all over the world related to these frequencies. However, in the U.S. we are told they are “safe.”

IMPORTANT: If you call Pacific Power, you might be told they are going to put a “radio frequency” meter on your property, and that these meters are NOT smart meters and are therefore safe. We believe they are not safe.

* * *

QUESTION: How do you know whether you already have a smart or radio frequency meter on your house?

ANSWER: If your meter has a horizontal SPINNING WHEEL, your meter is the older analogue type of meter, which is safe.

If your meter has a rectangular square with a DIGITAL NUMBER READ-OUT, you likely have a radio frequency-transmitting meter. Our meter reader has told us that whenever a new meter is needed – even now before the official rollout – they will automatically put up a radio frequency meter.

* * *

Many people become sensitive to these frequencies over time, and they begin to develop illnesses. They become what’s called “electrosensitive.” Usually they don’t realize they are sick because of their over-exposure to the microwave frequencies emitted by smart meters, cell-phones, cell towers, wi-fi modems, walk around phones, baby monitors, smart appliances, and security systems. The list seems to increase daily, and IT ALL ADDS UP. By the time a person realizes they have become electrosensitive or have Radiation Frequency Sickness, it can be difficult reverse the effects and regain health.

Microwaves actually corrupt human DNA. After all, they are also used to cook food. Recently, someone told us they were able to fry an egg and pop popcorn by surrounding the food with three cell-phones!

SOME SYMPTOMS RESULTING FROM MICROWAVE FREQUENCIES:

Inability to fall asleep and stay asleep (microwave technology limits the production of melatonin)
Agitation, irritability, anger, weeping
Painful, red skin and itching
Memory loss, brain fog
Migraines
Heart problems
High blood pressure
Cancer

The body can repair itself at the cellular level. However, at some point the body loses this ability and a variety of health conditions can begin to manifest. Note that because the human nervous system, including the brain and heart, use bioelectrical energy to function, these two systems are the first organs to be affected by microwave frequencies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are unable or unwilling to turn off your technology, at the very least turn it off at night so your body can repair itself.

You have most likely noticed the increase in violence in the U.S. and around the world, including horrible crimes never before heard of. We know microwave frequencies can cause a person to become irritated and angry from excessive exposure, and we attribute some of the violence in the world to wi-fi and other sources of microwave frequencies.

We are just beginning to develop this site, but soon we will have more pages and articles covering a variety of subjects, including:

SMART METERS, CELL-TOWERS, G5 CELL-TOWERS (in California and especially dangerous), CELL-PHONES, and WI-FI, in general

ON-LINE RESOURCE LINKS; Thie page is up, but still being developed.

RESOURCES FOR RADIO FREQUENCY REFUGEES (Note people around the world are searching for a safe place to live away from radio frequencies, including some who are living in their cars.)
