It didn’t hurt me

I worked with this type of electromagnetic radiation for decades and I'm just fine

There seems to be a lot of fear amongst the public about the installation of the smart meters on homes.

What I fear is I fail to comprehend. I was closely associated to the use of EM while working for mining companies looking for ore anomalies in exploration in the field.

First we strung a small copper wire for 12 to 15 miles from a small aircraft at tree top level. One end was connected to a few tin cans buried in a swamp or lake shore.

The other end connected to an instrument to emit EM power along the line.

Ground-carried instruments were used for two to five miles on either side on lines cut by field operators. Smaller hand-carried instruments were used on the same lines and readings were taken on 100-foot separations.

We were associated in proximity from fixed wing and helicopters dragging a bomb-like instrument behind the aircraft, flying at 50 to 100 feet.

Many hours were spent testing and repairing these instruments. At no time were we operators more than 15 feet from these instruments.

The only warning given to us was not to have a cheap wristwatch on your arm. A good anti-magnetic watch was never harmed.

If we are talking about EM that’s probably a million times stronger than the small amount from a smart meter.

On one contract alone we did 150,000 miles of flying, from the Yukon to the U.S./Mexico border over a two-year period.

Most on-the-ground contracts covered many hundreds of miles on snowshoes in winter.

So over a period of 20 years that I worked these instruments, I spent many hours using EM. On my present yearly medical I am well above people for my age.

My eyesight is normal and I still make a trip to the bathroom daily, so the only reason for my demise will be either natural causes or a jealous husband.

I still enjoy the finer points of life, be it wine, women or song.

By the way, on my next birthday I will be 90 years old.
