RF Water Meters

Yes, water meters can be RF also. My water meter broke..the city replaced it, telling me the new one, would be just like the old one. Well, it wasn't. It was a Sensus II RF AMI (automated). It set my emf meter off, made my house wiring go crazy, gave me a head-ache, and added current to my water line. I took a clamp ammeter and measured 9 amps! My usual readings are between 0.33 and 2.

Thankfully I was able to get the city take it OFF my house 42 hrs later. They are now estimating my water bills. I"d been following the smart meter debacle and hadn't read anything on water meters. But apparently, many houses already have the RF ones, and just don't realize it. This just happened this past Dec. I live in Michigan.

FP's Lawrence Solomon: McGuinty's reality

Lawrence Solomon Mar 11, 2011

"We've got to contend with reality," Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty told the provincial legislature last fall, in explaining that Ontarians need smart electricity meters to adapt to a changed "world where we are building a new reliable, clean, modern electricity system." With smart meters, his Energy Minister chimed in, the government was providing "the opportunity for Ontarians to be able to shift their usage from peak usage."

Here's the reality. Ontario doesn't need Mr. McGuinty's new electricity system, which will be immensely less reliable and immensely more costly than the current system. The only one who needs the system is Mr. McGuinty himself, to make good his boast of being the world's first leader to get his jurisdiction entirely off coal.
