    Thanks for helping with this huge task Joshua. I just mailed you my first check. Small. But that is how it is.

    You need a donate button, paypal and also a re-occurring credit card debit button. Thank you.

    And an email pre-set up that we can click on, add our name, and it goes out to our local government officials. lets put the pressure on. (I don’t have the know how/ability to do this….).
    I will make it a priority (to donate each month).

    ps: Article that explains why science studies against you.

      Thanks Eileen- we’ve received your donation in the post- thank you very much for your support. We’ve also added a PayPal link so people can pay that way (though checks are preferred). Many thanks again.

      • Nancy says:

        Josh et al: When you say donations by check are preferred, I suggest you remind people that Paypal takes a percentage of the donation.

        And: “If, instead, you want 100% of your donation to go to Stop SmartMeters, please pay by check or money order, rather than by credit card.

        E.g., out of $5000 in donations, Paypal gets at least $150. That’s substantial!

  2. Erik Bertram says:

    If for some reason you do get a smart meter installed,
    Then it can’t communicate with PG&E,
    and will most likely block much of its radiation……….

    • onthelevelblog says:

      Not bad advice, as long as you can wrap the entire meter (including the back), it will block most of the radiation. What you don’t want is the radiation being concentrated in a beam toward your child’s bedroom. We’ll do a post on that soon……

      • says:

        I’m working with a lady here in Texas who has an RF detector and she tried aluminum foil (not tin foil–they are 2 different things), but still got high readings at the front of the meter. I’m not sure she was able to wrap the back. If you don’t have a detector, and you have a website where you can track your usage (in Texas it’s, cover it and watch the usage online. If none shows up for the day you covered the meter, it sounds like it’s effectively blocking the radiation. We need to work on finding a sure fire way to cover these things.

    • Daryl says:

      The tin foil must be like a hat and make direct contact with the metal box that contains the meter AND the metal meter box needs to be grounded. This will block your house’s signal to PGE. Legally, you own the box and they own the meter. SO, as long as your foil doesn’t touch their meter, you should be fine.

      • Daryl says:

        p.s. this does not protect you from the signal fully, but it does attempt to “foil” them from reading your meter.

      • Redi Kilowatt says:

        All meter main and load centers must be grounded, if not, you’ve got a very serious problem !

        OK, I get it that you, like me, may be doubtful about the health problems with Smart Meters. BUT, how about the consistent reports, not much denied by the utility companies, THAT THE BILL GOES UP, OFTEN SUBSTANTIALLY, AFTER THE SMART METER IS INSTALLED. Our utility admitted, at a community meeting on the subject, that this may often happen, becuase the “old meters were less accurate”. And so, for years you have been billing us too little…”Well, um…yes.” STOP SMART METERS

        • Jason Wreight says:

          Personally I don’t care about the health-risks, such as they are. I resent the coercive abrogation of my civil liberties ( an probably human rights) by a bunch of would-be nazis.

          Not even when they start taxing sunlight!

    • Thomas Van Dyke says:

      Will foil block a lot of the signal on most meters. I have the Itron meter and the Tanalus smart meter. How will that affect your readings and billing when it is covered with something like foil.

      • Thomas Van Dyke says:

        Tantalus is the smart grid

      • Paul H says:

        Heavy duty aluminum foil will block microwaves. Unfortunately it’s not as simple as covering the meter. It uses the energized wiring in your home as an antenna creating a cage of pulsed Rf radiation. Focussing on the meter itself is like focussing on the tail of a lizard.
        I have had success by not covering the meter, but placing heavy duty aluminum foil on the wall behind it. Then turn off all breakers when sleeping accept the fridge and ventilation.

        • Mia Nony says:

          Hi, Paul H: Can I get clarification on this point you made? Are you saying that foiling a meter with heavy duty double layered aluminium foil such as Reflectix or Prodex insulation foil plus foiling the entire face of the interior wall behind the meter is still not able to stop the RF/microwave wireless transmissions? Are the transmitted frequencies somehow still able to directly couple house wiring because these frequencies don’t need a smart meter since they can simply bypass the meter and couple to all house wiring – which would be rue even if you have an analog meter?

          • Mia Nony says:

            And if this is so would covering all house walls and attic space with aluminium mesh screening be able to deflect these frequencies?

          • Paul H says:

            A meter reader told me that a smart meter placed deep in a basement, inside a metal cabinet, has no problem transmitting information. In the past he used a Rf remote reader and he would have problems communicating with it when the cabinet was closed.
            Since aluminum foil deflects microwaves it would be like playing a huge game of pinball. Energized wiring provides an avenue for microwaves to ride on. I have proved my method to be efficient and affective. It is a bit of a hassle to run out to the breaker box every time you need power for lighting or appliances. Gigahertz Solutions makes a switch that does this remotely.

          • Paul H says:

            I now have an analog meter and yes they have been transmitting Rf into my home. It’s a nightmare and I have been letting them know about it every day. Whoever has been answering the phones gets common sense info every day I have a problem. First it was 24/7, then from 8:45pm to 8:45am and as of last night there was nothing. You can hear it with a battery operated AM radio set at 530KHz. This may not work with newer radios as I found this out with one that was purchased last week. Fortunately I had bought one 9 months ago and found it after I got the new one. They look similar but aren’t identical. The new one has a battery compartment lid that is slightly larger and it’s antenna is not as sensitive.

        ….even if he only cuts the cables leading from the meter to the transmitter.

        As for the other circuitry, be aware that the neutral wire in every circuit can be used as an antenna to pick up every sound in your house ~ and presumably be transmitted via the radio-unit to just about anywhere.

    Joshua, You and your staff have tremendous strength to keep up this fight. What a service you all do for our nation! There is little support here – I can understand what it takes to keep on going. We already have disaster fatigue in Florida.

    Question for scientists: Many homes (mine included) here have metal interior stud framing. Also, metal roofing is very popular on higher end homes. Are these materials conductors that will amplify radiation to any degree?

    Question for polititians: Since we are forced to have the meter; don’t we (at the very least) have the right to be notified if we are selected as a site for the centralized data reciever meter? God forbid, if it is on my child’s home!

    FYI: They have begun installing water Smart Meters in Sarasota, FL

    • Paul H says:

      Metal absorbs microwaves and releases them at a different frequency along with amplifying it by 20 decibels. If the roof is aluminum that is a different story as it does not absorb.

      Stacking cases of water around your childs bed just above head level will work. Microwaves are absorbed by water and low frequencies tend to build up in small quantities. I have been able to eliminate microwave fields by doing this and it’s never a bad idea to have extra water on hand for emergencies.

  4. Nathan Taylor says:

    This is all idiotic fearmongering. You have neighbors that WANT the smart meter functionality, and your foolishness denies it to all. There is no more radiation from the meter than from the cell towers all over the countryside, the cell phone that you hold to your ear, and the WiFi network that your neighbors have and that you freeload on. You might as well stop going to Starbucks, or McDonalds, or the library, or ANY building in this country. If you fear RF so much, the only way you can escape it is to leave the planet. If you insist on living on earth and you want to avoid RF find a suit of chain mail and armor and wear it 24/7. Good luck, and good riddance.

    • Janus says:

      @ Nathan: Please do us a favor and do this test: place your WiFi router and your DECT phone next to your bed, keep your mobile under your pillow (and switched on) and make sure you sleep right behind the wall that your smart meter (and your smart water meter) is placed on.

  6. LadyBird says:

    Yes,,,DO IT. Wrapping your meter with foil or putting a steel coffee can over it works to reduce the RF radio signals. The power cannot do anything about you doing this, My lawyer has informed me are no laws about stopping/lowering radio signal coming from item on your property.

  7. SureThing says:

    Wrapping the meter dose work, make sure you wrap the meter all the way back covering the lockring. You do not need to cover the back because the meters back is covered by the steal meter panel. For more information do a google search for “faraday bag”.

    Join the (SMR) Smart Meter Resistance and foil every meter you see. Take a red felt marker and mark the meter panel “SMR” then photograph the meters and send the photos to every news organization.

          Well, every meter you see is not on your private property, so one would have to trespass onto other peoples property
          to foil and tag the meters.
          But when you take those photos, make sure to post them on your Facebook page, and tell all your “friends” to spread the word. The FBI, PG&E and the Facebook security team will surely investigate. Estupido !

    I saw a comment here that there are not many Florida people involved. That mainly has to do with 2 facts. 1) Most Florida people are retired sheep and are willing to do whatever the authority says they should do. 2) Florida law basically gives utilities unlimited access to all private property and allows them to do whatever they wish. In Florida, even if you can provide ALL of your own power needs, solar, wind or whatever, you are still REQUIRED to be on the grid and thus the power companies have unrestricted access and freedom to install / remove whatever they want. Florida is NOT a State for those who want minimal government intrusion.

    I have a smart meter in West Tennessee. Are you working on some stop meter things in Tennessee area? I want to get it removed. They were saying it has no radiation. When you look online you see radiation warnings. I don`t think we should be forced to have any item. The other thing is safety precautions. The utility company did not have anything to give me on the meters. I am seeing online that meters are not UL certified. I also saw that they do not meet all feed requirements for a wireless signal. How much are you trying to raise. The meter I have is Tantalus.

    I live in a condo complex. My building has 8 smart meters, all in one place. Their location is right outside my bedroom window. I cannot sleep in that room, and so I now sleep in another room.

    Does anyone know if the emissions from more than one smart meter are more than the emissions from one. Does it increase 8-fold? Or is it all just one frequency?

    • Amy O'Hair says:

      Greta, so sorry to hear of your situation. In my observation, two things happen with banks of smart meters: the sheer number of pulses increases in direct proportion to the number of meters; and the measurable power density of the RF radiation field also increases, as the pulses are additive. There are likely to be other bioeffects, because each of the meters is going off at very slightly different frequencies, but I don’t know enough about that to speak to it.

      Eight meters means 8 times anything between 10,000 and 190,000 pulses a day. When measuring banks of this number or more, I find they are almost never “silent”, but produce nearly continuous pulsing.

      Talk to your neighbors about opting out. Consider installing some shielding between you and the bank (e.g. aluminum screening) to blunt the worst of it. Contact and Josh will put you in touch with me if I can be of any further help.

  28. Where do you live?

    Who is your utility?

    8 meters means Radio Transmissions 8 times as often. Must SmartMeters transmit a radio transmission once every 7 seconds so wioth 8 meters you are getting a transmission about once per second.

  29. Ed Friedman says:


    The frequency is irrelevant. Because meter transmissions are designed to not overlap, you never have more than one transmission at a time so peak power remains the same. Because of multiple meters, you will have more transmissions per unit of time. Total number would be based on rate per meter. Your average and cumulative exposure then per unit of time [as long as we are talking greater than milliseconds] will be substantially greater with multiple meters than with one although peak power will remain constant based on transmission power of meter [i.e. 1 watt] and any external factors like antenna gain and reflection.

    Thanks for the info. on the cluster of 8 smart meters. The only way we are going to beat this very bad problem, is to get them removed. All of them. I am convinced that dealing with your own meter (or even a cluster of meters) is only a band-aid solution. You would also have to deal with your neighbors’ meters and other devices, like traffic light cameras, cell phone towers, etc., etc. They all pose a problem. My thoughts are for petitions, petitions, petitions, and more petitions. Also, researchers who are not afraid to test these devices on biology over time would contribute to this effort. In the meantime, we do have to do whatever we can in a smaller way. Opting out in my case would do very little, especially since you have to pay PG&E more each month to opt-out.
    My neighbors are not interested, and I do not want PG&E to benefit from the opt-out program. That’s really crazy.

  32. TiredofINVADERS says:

    Oh great. Have at least TEN of the symptoms of RFID-POISONING (from list posted above).
    Now what to do?
    PG&E deadline for opting out was apparently last May (but we never heard anything about it).
    How can we SHIELD ourselves from this cr*p? Especially need to get some sleep, and the SmartMeter is mounted on same wall as bedroom…?? (Now we know why I get A-fig every night when I try to go to sleep!)
    WHAT can we wrap around the SmartMeter to make it stop toxifying us, and will PG&E still be able to read it, or will we get a fine, or what?
    WHO gave them permission to do this to us?

  33. Power Unseen says:

    I have heard it said that the powers that be rely to a great degree on ignorance. Are these meters really compulsory? I mean even if a minister signs to permit them to be installed, it does not automatically mean they must be? Just because the utility says so. And there is word that there is an opt-out, but to charge a fee is insulting, but take it people, your health is worth it.

  34. Power Unseen says:

    100% screening would be very difficult with microwaves, they are so penetrating. However any screening you could do would probably go undetected, the meters in that case would ‘buddy send’ the messages, bouncing off a neighbours meter. Move or get the meters removed?

    Can someone please give me some advice. While I do not have a smart meter on my electric or gas meters, I do however have one in my basement on my water pipes. Its a smart water meter. I called and fussed and the guy at our small town utility company basically ignored me. I did however figure out from him that it sends a signal every 15 seconds 24/7! That made me even more upset knowing its not a once a month signal when they come around for readings. The pipe that it is on is situated underneath my 3 year olds bedroom. I’ve been trying to rack my brain to figure out how to get this out my house. First I looked for a switch if plug to turn it off…it has neither. Than yes, in a rage I tried pouring water on it to get it to short out. Did not work. So, I resorted to wrapping the entire meter in about 4 layers of foil. I’m not sure this will work nor am I sure I’m not actually amplifying the signals into my daughters room. I’m just trying to get it to where it’s not working properly and they call me to “fix” it. In which I will respond that I will not let them in my house and if they want it fixed they can install a regular meter outside. I’m hoping that legally I am allowed to restrict them from coming into my house to work on a meter they think is broken. Do they have a legal right to enter my property to tend to their meter? Can someone please tell me my rights and the right things to say to them and if the foil will help or hurt my situation. Thank you!
