'In this video, I measure the pulsed emissions from a ‘smart’ meter and a cell phone. This is previously unreleased footage, taken a couple of years ago.
Similar to testing results from many other researchers & experts, these results showed that the ‘smart’ meter microwave pulses are hundreds of times higher than the “extreme concern” threshold as set by the Building Biology guidelines.
I should be clear that while this is not a scientific-grade test, the results we got are generally aligned with tests performed by many researchers and safety advocates worldwide. The reason why lay-persons are the ones undertaking these tests is because every ‘official’ test of ‘smart’ meter emissions that I have seen employs inapplicable scientific methods (e.g. “time-averaging” of exposure) or inadequate context or conclusion (e.g. “safe according to the FCC”).
Our testing results are below, followed by a summary about the scientific significance of this amount of radiofrequency* (RF) radiation exposure, and recent developments in the grassroots movement for safety.
* – For our purposes at this time, we will consider the terms radiofrequency (RF), electromagnetic frequencies (EMF), and microwave radiation as being generally synonymous.
Radiofrequency (RF) Testing Results
In these tests I used a Cornet ED75 Electrosmog tester. (The newer Cornet ED88T is available in the Take Back Your Power shop for $179. I encourage as many people as possible to do your own tests and share the results.)
1. ‘Smart’ meter: up to 539,000 uW/m2 (1 foot distance)
539x higher than threshold for extreme concern, per Building Biology guidelines
- Manufacturer: Landis+Gyr
- Model: FOCUS AXR-SD
- Power Output:
3 watts1.115 watts (Correction: the power output is 1.115 watts, not 3 watts. The “3W” stands for “3 wire”.)
- Utility: KIUC, Kauai, Hawaii, USA
2. Cell phone: up to 1,386 uW/m2 (1 foot distance)
1.386x higher than the threshold for extreme concern, per Building Biology guidelines
- Manufacturer: Apple
- Model: iPhone 5
- Network: AT&T / 3G
- Connectivity: 3 bars connectivity
- NOTE: These tests are from a distance of approx 1 foot. This same cell phone placed on or immediately next to the body / head (or testing device) would produce an exponentially higher level of radiation exposure. I have personally tested cell phones in the range of 100,000 uW/m2 or more, from a distance of 1-2 inches. There are many variables involved, including phone make/model, connection type and bars of connectivity — not to mention distance, of course.
