“THE DEPLOYMENT” (of Smart Meters)

We received a letter from the Oregon Public Utility Commission (PUC), dated August 2, 2018, about the upcoming meeting on August 14 regarding the deployment of smart meters. The PUC’s use of the word “deployment” in their letter seems somewhat strange, as this word is often used to describe military operations, but given the stealth with which these dangerous meters have been forced on the public perhaps it’s not so strange after all.

LACK OF NOTICE AND INFORMED CONSENT: In a prior letter from Pacific Power (PP) to the PUC, dated January 4, 2017, PP states, in part: “To help support a smoother transition for the Company [PP] and its customers during smart meter installation … customers … will not receive notice prior to the installation.” (This statement appeared on PP’s website, but it might have been erased by now). This obvious deception on the part of PP is extremely offensive, in that citizens living in a free society have the guaranteed right to informed consent. We note, however, that you gave customers notice by letter approximately two weeks’ notice to opt-out. Unfortunately, no valid education and awareness could be achieved in this short period of time.

MORATORIUM: The deployment of smart meters should be stopped immediately to allow time for further study, public education, and public input.

ELIMINATE OPT-OUT FEES OR LOWER THEM SIGNIFICANTLY: The fees proposed by PP for Southern Oregon are outrageous. There are no fees in Eugene and the fees for PP’s Northern California customers are significantly lower. We heard recently that the extra fees are needed to blow up dams and promote electric cars. How can you sleep at night, when you are willing to inflict such a “tax” on electric consumers, especially seniors and the disabled, who cannot afford to pay the fees?

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I am highly sensitive to radio/microwave frequencies—as are many of Dr. Clunie’s patients and thousands of others, worldwide. I get sick when I am exposed for more than 15-20 minutes to radio frequency radiation, including from cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi modems, and smart meters, etc. I can control my exposure most of the time, but the assault from smart meters is constant and unavoidable 24/7. They are a horrible invasion of personal privacy and the basic human right to peaceful existence. We live in a mobile home park, so even though we opted-out we are surrounded by these meters, and I am unable to go out of the house for more than a few minutes—which is not long enough to pull the ever-increasing weeds in our backyard!

WELCOME TO THE “WAR ZONE”: At 11:30 p.m., a few nights after the meters were installed, I opened my bedroom window and looked out. At that moment, a pulse of microwave/radio frequency radiation from the neighboring smart meters came through the window and aluminum screening and hit me in the face. This pulse caused a reaction that felt like an electrical or chemical burn. It was as though I had been “shot” with a gun. My skin turned red instantly and began to burn and itch. This lasted all night and the next day. It was like being in a war zone and I was terrified.

SAFETY: PP has stated repeatedly that the levels of microwave/radio frequency radiation emitted by smart meters are safe. These false statements are based on 50-year-old thermal studies that ignore thousands of more recent studies proving biological harm at vastly lower levels. Note we are in the process of compiling scientific studies from around the world proving the dangers of microwave radiation, and we will forward them soon at your request.

In addition to being told that smart meters are completely safe, we have been told they will save us money. These falsehoods have yet to be verified. We do not believe the propaganda being shoved down our throats, and we absolutely and unequivocally do NOT consent to deployment of smart meters in Oregon, ever.

How can human beings be expected to live under such conditions? Must those of us who are sensitive live like caged animals, or commit suicide when we can no longer stand the assault from our electric meters? There are thousands of people like me around the world who are electro-sensitive, and I implore you to study this issue in depth to learn the truth about how you are contributing to the misery of humanity.

THE ISSUE OF VIOLENCE: In addition to inflaming the tissues of the human body and causing disease, microwave/radio frequency radiation inflames the emotions, causing irritation and anger. We believe the increase in violence in our country and around the world is a direct result of the escalation of these technologies.

RESPONSIBILITY: We hereby hold every individual who works for the Oregon Public Utility Commission, Pacific Power, and the lawmakers in the State of Oregon personally responsible for the misery you are inflicting on Oregonians. The damage caused by microwave/radio frequency radiation accumulates over time, and there is more and more of it in our environment. At some point in the not-so-distant future—when there is an epidemic of cancer and other diseases caused by humanity’s addiction to smart phones, and there are smart meters on the wall of every building, remember that you were warned. From my point of view, anyone who supports the infliction of smart or R.F. electric meters on the citizens of Oregon is a criminal, and one day we will all pay dearly with our health, and the health of those we love.

SMART METERS ARE DEADLY and they are currently being installed in Southern Oregon (June 2018)


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.


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.


CBS: Cell phone radiation linked to cancer in rats in first-ever large government-funded study

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.

When you try to talk to your doctor or other health care professional about your sensitivity to EMFs do they dismiss your ailments as psychosomatic, tell you that you are crazy, and offer you drugs and surgery?

Recently I went to my eye doctor to inquire about a new prescription, only to find out that his office is filled with wi-fi, so much so that it registers in the red zone on my Cornet meter. My comments fell on deaf ears.

Further exploration led me to Dr. Kantor in Medford, who is still using traditional equipment and methods of testing eyes, rather than modern digital technology run on wi-fi (microwave frequency).

This dilemma also led me to a wonderful website that offers references and links to scientific articles published in professional journals related to the health problems caused by modern technology – including eye problems such as cataracts and vision loss. Hmm…why would I expose my aging eyes to more wi-fi in order to get better glasses?

I am very grateful to the folks who created this website. So if any doctor tries to tell you that you are crazy, look up your ailment and offer him or her the proof:

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:


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.
