Human antennas

To begin with, I would like to make it clear that I have worked with radio frequency transmitters in my career for over 28 years.

This is in response to “Safety is the key,” a letter to the editor written by Gary Murphy, B.C. Hydro’s chief for Smart Meters.

To begin with, I would like to make it clear that I have worked with radio frequency transmitters in my career for over 28 years.

Signals for televisions, radios, etc., go only to that device, whereas Smart Meter signals go to every electrical outlet in the home.

The smart meter connects to the electrical panel — which in turn is connected to every wire in the entire home.

Each of these wires acts as an antenna, carrying the radio frequency signal through each receptacle in the entire home.

Every smart meter contains two antennae — one for receiving and the other for transmitting.

As our bodies are conductors of electricity (which is evidenced when one touches a live wire and receives a shock), our bodies are also receiving this radio frequency radiation continually when a smart meter is installed on the home.

The radiation is constant, both inside and outside the home, and since most of the new appliances have transmitters in them to allow them to ‘speak’ to the smart meter, they too give off radiation in the home.

Unfortunately, there are some people who are sensitive to these radio frequency waves, some of them are extremely so.  It is not hogwash, it is a living hell — and there is no amount of dialogue that can change what these individuals suffer through.

Safety is of great concern, Gary Murphy.  That is why more attention needs to be given to the health issues and other concerns over these radiating smart meters.

He stated: “As a provincial Crown corporation, we are also accountable for the information we provide to people.”

We will hold your feet to the fire on this, as well as BC Hydro and the Liberal government.
