Recently, I had the opportunity to measure the RF Radiation coming from an ITRON C1SR in Summerland BC and the results were quite alarming. This is an AMR type of meter. This type of meter has been reported to being used in Nelson and Grand Forks BC.
This C1SR meter transmits a spike of radiation that contains the current kWh reading of the meter every 30 seconds. This is done so that a Meter Reader with a receiver can drive by any time and can get the reading without having to wait very long. This time between transmits may be changed by the operator but they have to walk up to the meter and use a direct connection to the meter to do that. It seems that the meters in Grand Forks are also transmitting at 30 second intervals.
The measurements that I made from the front of the meter in Summerland at a distance of 2 meters ranged from 500 to almost 900 microwatts per square meter ( µW/m²). This, is quite high when measured at 2m. The radiation at 1m would be significantly higher. If this meter were on the side of a house next to a bedroom or kitchen then I would be very concerned.
I used a GigaHertz HF59B radiation meter and recorded the output on a GigaHertz NFA1000. Here is what I recorded:
You can see that all spikes were not the same power (I do not know why) but the spacing was almost exactly 30 seconds.
I have also recorded the output of Itron Smart Meters and found that the radiation spikes were similar in strength (amplitude) but the number of spikes were significantly less than the C1SR meters.
Thus, if you believe that each spike from a digital meter is harmful and the radiation damage is cumulative, then you must conclude that the Itron C1SR and similar AMR meters are capable of serious health impact similar to that of Smart Meters.
Jerry Flynn has been doing some research into the connection between the value of real estate and the proximity of cell towers.

2 – In December 2009, 27 Burbank real estate professionals signed a petition/statement offering their professional opinion that the proposed T-Mobile cell tower at Brace Canyon Park would negatively impact the surrounding homes.

5 – “Cell towers are sprouting in unlikely places.” The New York Times reported on January 9, 2000 (fears that property values could drop between 0 to 40 per cent because of neighboring cell towers)!

An excellent video. Fast 36 min. You must pause video to read some of the slides. Fantastic. The presentation gets a bit deep but this will give you an idea of what is going on in the world of EHS research.
EHS sufferers are not crazy. It is the world that has gone crazy.

In August 2013, Josh Matlow, a Toronto city Councilor started a push for free WiFi in Toronto Parks. see http://joshmatlow.ca
Also, do a web search to find more “public wireless internet in torontos parks”
In November 2013, 2 respected Medical Doctors wrote to the Toronto City Councilors stating that WiFi in public parks is not a good idea.
It is imperative that City of Toronto does not install wifi’s in public parks and spaces. I ask you to vote against Councillor Matlow’s proposal.
The doctors are:
Hugh E. Scully BA, MD, MSc, FRSCICI, FACS, Professor of Surgery, etc. (see more details by doing a search on Hugh scully toronto)
Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D. F.A.C.C., F.A,C.N, C.N.S (see more details by doing a search on Stephen Sinatra)
Please read the letters written by these two eminent doctors to the Toronto city councilors.

I have just viewed this video by Barrie Trower on the Major health consequences of WiFi and Microwaves on our health and the genetic health of all females.
The punch line here is that wifi and rf radiation is damaging the mitochondrial DNA of the eggs in the yet unborn female fetus and this is a permanent damage that cannot be undone.
This means that if a female is newly pregnant (first 100 days) and has been irradiated with WiFi or other microwave radiation, then there is a distinct possibility that the children of her daughter, not yet born, will have some damage to the mitochondrial DNA.

There have been many reports, both official and anecdotal, that Smart Meters have started fires in homes.
Yet, the power companies have been able to resist having to deal with the issue and have been able to hide their complicity.

Speaking at a recent public rally in front of the Parliament Buildings in Victoria BC: Jack Etkin longtime activist and host of many publicly broadcast video interviews on the topic of social issues of concern.
Mr. Etkin suggests that our real problem is control of politics by corporations who also own just about all the mainstream media outlets where the public receives it’s information.
The truth is simply not being told to the public on a long list of issues where the corporate addenda is involved. Do you really think you would be told information which would lead to a huge loss in corporate profit, even if it involved health risks?
Smart meters are much more than the stated better electricity meter. In home surveillance of everything you do is just around the bend and the reason for all the new smart appliances. Corporate Surveillance even while you sleep.
