Video of an ANALOG Meter with RF 

“my meter spiked as high as the meter would allow this meter was set on gauss reading.  The neighbors smart meter showed 6-8 gauss.  The readings on the outside my microwave oven while running was less than and equal to this reading the difference is I use my microwave oven maybe 10 minutes out of the day to bake potatoes and the meter on my house puts out the same or more 24/7.   You do know not to stand too close to a microwave don’t you?  Even though it does not burn you they know it causes health effects.”

 

From StopSmartMeters.Org and EIwellspring.org:  ”As if smart meters weren’t creepy enough, it appears that utility companies have been hiding wireless transmitters  in so-called ‘analog’ meters, without informing the public.  You might be paying hundreds of dollars a year for a meter that looks like a safe analog with a spinning disc or dials, but it is still pulsing microwave radiation.   Sound like a bait & switch scam?  It is.”  (Link:  http://stopsmartmeters.org/2013/10/11/trojan-horse-analog-meters-investigated/)

 

EIwellspring.org:  ”There are meters available which transmit by wireless or by PLC [power line carrier], which both can cause health problems.”  Here is a link that includes pictures, revealing what an analog electric meter with a wireless transmitter in it looks like:  http://www.eiwellspring.org/smartmeter/StealthMeters.htm.
