I have a smart meter - which is an electricity meter that wirelessly transmits its readings back to the power company. I also have an RF meter. I measured the RF at about a foot away. There was mostly just background noise, but about once per minute it went up to about 0.5 mw/m2. The peak levels were above 20, but not long enough to show up on the main display.
So I was quite surprised to see this video:
With a rather dramatic claim.
They are using a HF 35C meter.
So what's going on here. Well, the meter actually reads in µW, not mW, so what they put on screen is probably 1000x than the actual level. The meter has two ranges: fine (199.9µW/m2) and coarse (1999 µW/m2), and that seems to just have the decimal point on or off.
Because this is a super low range (1/1000 my meter) it's not very practical unless you are scanning for listening devices. There's also an additional RF damper you can buy which does an additional 100x reduction in the signal, meaning, as they say on the screen, you have to add two zeros.
However, that just makes the reading 50,000 µW/m2, or 50 mW/m2. Lower than WHO limits of 9,000 mW/m2, but still higher than what I'm seeing. It also seems to be constant, whereas mine just broadcast for 1 second every minute.
Interesting stuff. I'm seeing a pattern of misunderstood readings that reminds me of the old days of "chemtrails" when people would mix up their units, or use "limits" which were actually lower detection limits, not exposure limits. But the EMF version seems way more well developed, and with a lot more money involved.
The company that made the above video is selling the "Smart Meter Guards", and other products.
