A CONSTANT, NON STOP “PULSED” LOW RADIO FREQUENCY HUM AND DRONE RADIATING FROM GLOBAL SMART GRID MESH NETWORK!

FINGERPRINT OF 217Hz-SOURCE OF NOISE

WE ARE ALL BEING EXPOSED TO THE BIGGEST AVOIDABLE HEALTH HAZARD IN  THE  HISTORY OF OUR PLANET! 

THE GLOBAL SMART GRID SYNDROME

Site Updated Daily

We have published this blog for victims who are hearing a constant noise inside as well as outside.  I am coining the term, “SMART GRID SYNDROME” WHEN REFERRING TO THE SYMPTOMS WE ARE EXPERIENCING.  WE ARE ALL EXPOSED  TO THE EMR NOISE AND RADIATION, RESULTING IN THE EMISSIONS OF THE GLOBAL SMART GRID NETWORK.  After visiting forums and  reading several blogs related to this particular noise(s), we found that people, in general, are seeking answers as to what is happening to them and are desperate for the truth.   One blog was consistent with the descriptors of what we have been describing to the State of Massachusetts.  We have confirmed it is a microwave pulsation accompanied by   “pure tones”,  illegal in our State of  Massachusetts. The Regulations were adopted from the EPA  who studied pure tone noise and in 1972 determined it to be a noxious air pollutant, thus being a human health hazard.  Whether proven to be a pure tone or not; it is a nuisance and it is trespassing on and in to your home and the source is the utilities who are leaking carcinogenic microwave frequencies they are injecting through power lines for the Smart Grid communication layer of the global network.  The power lines were designed to transmit electricity.  They are using broadband, Dsl, Wi-Fi, wired, unwired, Sat, cell; whatever they choose to use because they have many options on how to operate the Smart Grid Network.  The noise is a by-product of the Radio Frequency interference, radiation and dirty power riding on the wires and radiating through every outlet in to your home, school and workplace.  The constant pounding of these modulated pulsed signals is biologically invasive to all who are exposed to it and produce serious negative symptoms. Thousands of Medical studies prove this a Public Health Hazard.

DEFINITION OF NOISE   “Noise is an unwanted or objectionable sound”   VERY IMPORTANT!!  When trying to explain this NOISE be aware that the ignorant, be them experts, professionals or not, the noise is incorrectly defined  if it is described as just a sound.  IT IS AN UNWANTED OR OBJECTIONABLE SOUND.  MUSIC IS SOUND, EVERYTHING THAT YOU CAN HEAR IS A SOUND.  THIS is a noise from hell, manmade, radio frequency signals that are leaking into our air causing them to bounce, reflect, enabling them to be heard in  the human hearing range.  These are illegal pure tones (pure tones are extremely rare and not normally found in our environment) and damage  hearing with prolonged exposure.  This is an unprecedented event that has never occurred  for, historically, mankind has never before lived with wireless/bio active microwaves leaking in the air.  How could anyone even fathom such a disaster and that we would be expected to live and be perpetually exposed to this hazardous pollution in our daily lives, 24 hours, day and night, against our will, without permission, with no way to escape it?  The dismissal  of our pleas for help and evidence by our local, State and Federal Governments,  the lack of empathy and desire to do anything about it,  even by victims who are aware and suffering from this technology, is unconscionable.  Without  personal responsibility there will be no resolution or  accountability of the crimes being perpetrated on our Society.  Sickness and death is inevitably the result of doing nothing.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR HEARERS TO UNDERSTAND.  IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO ALL OTHERS WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE OF WHAT WE ARE HEARING AND TINNITUS.  TINNITUS IS DEFINED AS SUCH: Tinnitus is an auditory sensation characterized by the perception of sound or noise in the absence of any external sound source. Based on neurobiological research, it is generally accepted that most forms of tinnitus are attributable to maladaptive plasticity due to damage to auditory system. Changes have been observed in auditory structures such as the inferior colliculus, the thalamus and the auditory cortex as well as in non-auditory brain areas. However, the observed changes show great variability, hence lacking a conclusive picture. One of the reasons might be the selection of inhomogeneous groups in data analysis.  (EXCERPT FROM: The Differences in Brain Activity between Narrow Band Noise and Pure Tone Tinnitus Published: October 27, 2010  DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0013618)

PLEASE, Research:  The Lilly Wave called a balanced bidirectional pulse pair invented by John Cunningham Lilly is a carrier waveform that bypasses the mind’s subconscious defense systems. It has been monitored via oscilloscopes connected to homes A/C ground and neutral of power lines. It can be used to transmit mind control via ultrasonic (1 – 10MHz) and electromagnetic wavelengths (600m to 1e-15m). 
•Electromagnetic wavelengths transmit long/short/FM wavelength radio waves, and TV/telephone/wireless signals or energies. They are also responsible for transmitting energy in the form of microwaves, infrared radiation (IR), visible light (VIS), ultraviolet light (UV), X-rays, and gamma rays (1996) 
• The Lilly wave can be neutralized via pink or white noise generators connecting to the non-voltage A/C ground and neutral of the homes power grid.

The goal was to find an electric current waveform with which animals could be stimulated through implanted electrodes for several hours per day for several months without causing irreversible changes in threshold by the passage of current through the tissue.
Many waveforms, including 60-cps. sine-wave current could apparently be used safely for these limited schedules of stimulation. They could not be used for the intensive, long-term schedule of chronic stimulation. Electric current passed through the brain can cause at least two distinct types of injury: thermal and electrolytic.
The technical problem in chronic brain stimulation is to stay above the excitatory threshold and below the injury threshold in the neuronal system under consideration. This result can be achieved most easily by the proper choice of waveforms and their time courses; and less easily by the choice of the range of repetition frequencies and train durations.
The previous wave forms used in neurophysiology and in neurosurgery injured the neurons when unidirectional current passed through the brain. Dr. Lilly developed a new electrical wave form to balance the current, first in one direction and then, after a brief interval, in the other. Thus ions moving in the neurons would first be pushed one way and then quickly the other way, stimulating the neurons and leaving the ions in their former positions within the neurons. This new wave form was called a balanced bidirectional pulse pair, or the Lilly Wave. Microscopic studies of brains stimulated with this balanced pulse pair showed that there was no injury of the neuronai networks from this kind Waveform of stimulating current: pulse pairs of current resulting from quasi-differentiation, with passive electrical elements, of a rectangular pulse. Measured at 2 percent of the peak, the duration of the positive pulse (upward) is 34 µsec, and the duration of the negative pulse (downward) is 28 µsec. stimulation.

 Cause of the Hum Broadcasting on Power lines (Forensic evidence below and in the forensic fingerprint at top of page)

Proof of Hum on Power lines and the Source of World Wide Public Health Hazard

Proof of Hum on Power lines and the Source of World Wide Public Health Hazard

Our research/investigation has been ongoing since 2006 when the Utilities turned on the Global Smart Grid Network in our town.  The reason for the investigation is due to the Constant noise being heard in our home and around our town.  We have conclusive forensic evidence that ponts to the 902-928MHz unlicensed frequency band being used across the country and Canada to operating the mesh communication layer of the Global Smart Grid Network.  The ARRL in the U.S. and Canada have filed numerous complaints siting the utilities are violating the FCC part 15 rules.  This links our evidence of the 217Hz, which is the audible illegal pure tone measured as per the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.  Our evidence proves a constant tone in our environment, man-made, not allowed in our air as per the EPA  Clean Air Act, which were adopted by Massachusetts in 1990.  The 217Hz is a demodulated pulsed frequency transmitting in concert with 902-928MHz spectrum for communication with the Smart meters.  Our 1/3 octave measurements taken as per MAdep protocol was confirmed by an acoustic engineer revealing the 217Hz is an illegal pure tone, (pulsing also occurs at 8.34Hz)it is in exceedence of the MA Noise pollution Laws. The expert stated the frequency is within human hearing range and would cause a disturbance, especially at night.   We also have the affidavit of A certified Forensic Audio engineer who also confirmed the constant noise is the 217Hz, a modulating pulse.  The measurements taken at our home, 5 miles away from our home and during a major power outage were all identical fingerprints. This is the evidence the Massachusetts Regulatory agencies have in their possession and have blatantly ignored and dismissed by closing the investigation for the 3rd time!  The MA Department of Environmental Protection would not hire their own expert to do overnight pure tone measurements.  They would not include the FCC in the investigation.  They deferred to the utilities to do the overnight pure tone studies.  The utility, National Grid, botched the overnight testing, both, in our home and outside where they placed the meters.  The MA Department of Environment Protection, Department of Public Health and the Department of Public Utilities did not come back to do the overnight pure tone testing as per their testing design.  Instead, they closed our case with no reasonable explanation.

National Grid, USA and other utilities across the country “turned on” in 2006- the 2 way communication fixed and wired AMI network.  Nationl Grid uses the Landis GYR TS-2 AMI technology.  THIS IS WHEN THE CONSTANT NOISE STARTED RADIATING IN OUR AIR;  Carried by the interconnected power grid; turning the wires into one big continuous antenna and electromagnetic weapon!!!  This must be stopped.  Time for our engineers, professionals, experts to pay attention to the biggest death weapon directed at the entire population while assaulting us with NOISE, DIRTY ELECTRICITY 24/7.

Latest research in Germany points to mobile communication radio waves (base station antennas) as source of the hum. The hum is not caused by the cell phones themselves but by the emissions of the base stations (antennas) transported over the air interface.
The low frequent pulsing and modulations of the signals lead to acoustic resonance in buildings. http://archive.is/vSMuu

Bees are frequency-sensitive, like all living organisms: TIMELINE OF THE BEES, BATS BIRDS DEMISE IS LATE 2006=EARLY 2007.  THE TIME LINE IS EXACTLY THE TIME NATIONAL GRID TURNED ON THEIR PERSONAL WIRELESS MESH NETWORK LAYER FOR THE SMART GRID IN OUR TOWN ON MT WILCOX.  LATE FULL/EARLY WINTER THE NOISE BEGAN AND THE NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS AS WELL DUE TO THE PULSED SIGNAL FROM THE BASE STATION TRANSMITTING THE 217Hz. There was and is no other cell tower within 5 miles of our home, so this explains why our cell phone works if you face it toward the north in the direction of Mt. Wilcox.  The Antenna, data collector, tower, what ever they choose to call it is filed under the FCC as Personal Mobile.  There is nothing personal about it.  The end user is not the public. It is for corporate use.  Why aren’t these antennas under investigation by the FCC.  They are in violation of the FCC Part 15.   National Grid and all utilities using this wireless protocol is in violation of the clean air act.  They are radiating EMR noise pollution that is harming all living things.

Read an excerpt below: There may indeed be more than one ‘hum’, but since bees are so sensitive to particular frequencies, this is a worthwhile route for research, especially if hives resonate in response to the now all-pervasive EM fields. This is why the HUM we are describing in not related to The Historic HUM Mystery. As stated many times in research studies Hum typically occurs in regional clusters, and rarely within large metropolitan areas. Here is the link to read the full report. http://arizonaskywatch.com/?topic=haarp-and-birds-and-bees-04152007 The Modern Day Hum we have time lined since 2006 is being heard everywhere, not in pockets, clusters or regions. Our registry of people who are hearing the noise we describe are located all across the United States and World. Cities, rural, urban and the like all can hear the Noise we describe and it is a current timeline. The pockets or clusters of the hum, some explained and some still left a mystery could be related to electromagnetic inference and the emissions could have been radiating on the power lines as well, but the reason this is ubiquitous is because of the pulsed RF signals of the wireless devices being employed by the PLC mesh layer of the Global Automated metering infrastructure, which all or most of the population is exposed to.

Our Recordings identify both the hum and the drone:

It is interesting to reflect that many people complain of ‘the hum’, relating electromagnetic sources with an apparently acoustic phenomenon.  GSM mobile phone systems produce a structural pulse frequency of 217Hz; pulsing also occurs at 8.34Hz.  The 8.34Hz is the source of the droning drum-like very low frequency vibration.  I hear both simultaneously 24/7.  You may  hear one or the other or both.

[Excerpt from smartmeterdangers.org]
 SMD Note: Smart meters utilize a 912 MHz frequency and emit pulsed rf radiation 24/7, with full body exposures at up to 160x that of cell phones (Hirsch, 2011). This is an example of thousands of studies that show this is dangerous to the public health.

P Esmekaya MA et al, (December 2010) Pulse modulated 900 MHz radiation induces hypothyroidism and apoptosis in thyroid cells: a light, electron microscopy and immunohistochemical study, Int J Radiat Biol. 2010 Dec;86(12):1106-16. Epub 2010 Sep 1

In the present study we investigated the possible histopathological effects of pulse modulated Radiofrequency (RF) fields on the thyroid gland using light microscopy, electron microscopy and immunohistochemical methods. Two months old male Wistar rats were exposed to a 900 MHz pulse-modulated RF radiation at a specific absorption rate (SAR) of 1.35 Watt/kg for 20 min/day for three weeks. The RF signals were pulse modulated by rectangular pulses with a repetition frequency of 217 Hz and a duty cycle of 1:8 (pulse width 0.576 ms). To assess thyroid endocrine disruption and estimate the degree of the pathology of the gland, we analysed structural alterations in follicular and colloidal diameters and areas, colloid content of the follicles, and height of the follicular epithelium. Apoptosis was confirmed by Transmission Electron Microscopy and assessing the activites of an initiator (caspase-9) and an effector (caspase-3) caspases that are important markers of cells undergoing apoptosis. Morphological analyses revealed hypothyrophy of the gland in the 900 MHz RF exposure group. The results indicated that thyroid hormone secretion was inhibited by the RF radiation. In addition, we also observed formation of apoptotic bodies and increased caspase-3 and caspase-9 activities in thyroid cells of the rats that were exposed to modulated RF fields. The overall findings indicated that whole body exposure to pulse-modulated RF radiation that is similar to that emitted by global system for mobile communications (GSM) mobile phones can cause pathological changes in the thyroid gland by altering the gland structure and enhancing caspase-dependent pathways of apoptosis.

Beyond ear perception, the radiation is also otherwise physically noticed by humans. Reasons that speak for mobile communication as source of the hum:
– correlations between peoples´ reports of first hearing the hum and the setup of antennas in their neighborhood, clearly demonstrable in small towns and villages; increase of the phenomenon parallels setup of antennas;
– physical complaints of hum sufferers are the same as the symptoms that are reported for radio wave sickness
– measurements show artificial signals in the ELF-range; qualitative signal analyses show characteristics of portable radio technology (pulsing, modulation)
– effects of radiation by mobile radio waves on human brain waves in the ELF-range have already been medically proven.

ELF frequencies in mobile communication technology as cause of the hum?

Many people are not aware of the fact that – besides RF frequencies – also low frequencies (ELF frequencies) play an important role in mobile communication technology. This is not only the case with regard to the cell phones (as has been focussed in most publications), but also with regard to the so-called “base stations”.
Low frequencies are used in two techniques: in signal pulsing and in wave modulation.  Our audio also points to an audible bass tone resonance also being heard by victims.

The descriptions that are consistently reaffirmed by victims across the country as well as the world are:

1. Constant noise  2. Humming  3.Buzzing  4. Oscillating pulse  5. Thudding, thumping, rumbling resonance 6. Sounds like a motor idling outside my house 7. can hear it during power outage  8. disturbs sleep  9. unnerving  10. checked all mechanical functions in the home  11. called the utilities; they did nothing 12. Can hear it outside  13. Can hear it sitting with the car turned off.  14. Started hearing it around 2006 to present  15. pressure in the ears and head  16. Not tinnitus 17. Have to sleep with a fan, music, tv to mask the noise; even though I have to listen to another noise than that insidious noise.  18. I can not relax listening to it.  19. Some people hear it some don’t  20. I am afraid to talk about it because people will think I am crazy  21. I have never had trouble sleeping before this noise started  22.  Some mention power lines, microwave  transmitters, cell towers, gas lines, water lines as a theory.  23.  Siren  24. high pitch frequency 25. CAN HEAR IT DURING A POWER OUTAGE.  26.  The noise is present 24 hours a day.

This is to name a few of the descriptors of hearing the Noise.  The Symptoms of the ill effects of being exposed to this noise and radiation pollution are as follows, but not limited to:

Headaches, heart palpitations , vertigo, insomnia, nose bleeds, muscle aches and involuntary muscle spasms, nervous tension, irritability, anger, feeling not in control of your environment, alienated and not understood, loss of concentration, tired, feeling your body is buzzing, hissing and ringing in the ears from the very high radio frequencies in the Microwave spectrum; radiating in the air and on riding on the power-lines through every outlet of public and private buildings.

Low frequency noise annoyance and stress  (from Noise and Health 2004 Volume 6 Issue 23 Page: 59-72 HG Leventhall

Stresses may be grouped into three broad types: cataclysmic stress, personal stress and background stress. Cataclysmic stress includes widespread and devastating physical events. Personal stress includes bereavements and other personal tragedies. Cataclysmic and personal stresses are evident occurrences, which are met with sympathy and support, whilst their impacts normally reduce with time. Background stresses are persistent events, which may become routine elements of our life. Constant low-frequency noise has been classified as a background stressor (Benton, 1997; Benton and Leventhall, 1994). Whilst it is acceptable, under the effects of cataclysmic and personal stress, to withdraw from coping with normal daily demands, this is not permitted for low level background stresses. Inadequate reserves of coping ability then leads to the development of stress symptoms. In this way, chronic psychophysiological damage may result from long-term exposure to low-level low-frequency noise.

Changes in behavior also follow from long­ term exposure to low-frequency noise. Those exposed may adopt protective strategies, such as sleeping in their garage if the noise is less disturbing there. Or they may sleep elsewhere,  returning to their own homes only during the day.  Victims over time, may undergo character changes, particularly in relation to social orientation, consistent with their failure to recruit support and agreement from the regulatory authority that they do have a genuine noise problem. Their families, and the investigating officer, may also become part of their problem. The claim that their “lives have been ruined” by the noise is not an exaggeration, although their reaction to the noise might have been modifiable at an earlier stage.

We have forensic audio evidence proving this is in our environment and ubiquitous throughout our community 24 hours a day. We have identified the noise in several other towns and cities where we have lived and traveled.  We live in a community that does not have cell towers, public sewer, gas lines, industry, major highways.  The only thing we have is Broadband high-speed internet and Wi-Fi and wireless smart meters.  We did not hear this noise until this was rolled out in our town and same follows in the other places we hear the noise.  In our town National Grid is our electric provider.   In 2006 National Grid installed a wireless digital meter on our home without our knowledge or consent.  In order to manage their wireless network it has to be secure so they acquired approval for a secure personal wireless service (a secure server),  in order to communicate and transfer personal information to their central office.  The wireless network within the electric grid is responsible for the constant noise.  The noise began when they connected the wireless smart meter communication mesh layer in our area.  The wireless network is transmitting on the grid even during major outages. This is why it is heard everywhere and ubiquitous in our environment.  This is the Modern day Hum people are wondering about.   It is not a car idling, an air conditioner rattling, highway traffic, industry. We recorded a fingerprint of a pulsed radio frequency, not a power 60Hz sine wave.  It is narrowband, not broadband, it is man made, not something that is natural. To better understand the various ways the modernization or automation of the smart grid is being implemented read:  A Survey of Wireless Communications for the Electric Power System by  BA Akyol H Kirkham, SL Clements,  MD Hadley    January 2010

We have a fingerprint of this noise as a result of retaining a Forensic Audio engineer.  He has confirmed by analyzing recordings of several locations in our town, as well as a recording during a power outage.  The results are identical audio fingerprint.  1/3 octave band testing confirmed a constant noise, the 217Hz, in the 250Hz narrowband, it is a modulating pulse bursting every second with 1/8 second micro bursts.  This is proven science and it has been duplicated and confirmed repeatedly.  The audio recordings have been documented for the past three years, preserved in data form onto CDs.  This evidence, along with our 1/3 octave band results showing illegal pure tones/noise,  power quality results showing dirty electricity/noise, forensic audio results confirming constant noise, witnesses and other residents in our town who have filed noise complaints with the State.  Yet, we are approaching 7 years of willful negligence by  the State and Utilities in not acknowledging their culpability and intentions to clean up the harmful pollution impacting our heath and well-being.   Thousands of health studies prove this is  a public health  hazard; both the acoustic assault and the non-thermal radiation exposure will have a long term health effects.  We are being used for a human experiment.   The long term exposure to the pure tone of the 217Hz can damage the cohlear in the middle ear.  This is why the EPA set pure tone exposure limits for workplaces.  These limits were for 8 hour work shifts.  We are exposed to the 217Hz pure tone 24 hours a day, non stop, every day!!!  Please help us to expose the truth about this deadly technology.  The Smart Grid is not an intelligent technology. It is a ruthless, greedy, sinister, desperate plan, with no regard for human life.  The Radio frequency spread spectrum of the 902MHz-928MHz being used on the mesh layer of Global Smart metering infrastructure  uses the 217Hz demodulated pulsed frequency to to carry its signal 24 hours a day non stop.  This is why it is heard during a power outage as well.

If you are a victim of this noise please contact us by emailing the globalrfrdefenseteam@verizon.net.  The only way we will be able to get attention on this issue, is by proving the pollution is wide-spread.   We are looking for victims to post their location and experience of hearing this noise and include when you started hearing it.  Please leave your testimonials on the Smart Meter testimonial page.  We are also interested in collecting data in your area.   PLEASE, we are only interested personal experiences and nothing that predated Wireless high-speed broadband and Wi-Fi roll-out, Power-line 2 way communication and the wireless digital meter put on our home in September of 2006, without our knowledge or consent.  Our complaints predated our knowledge or awareness of what the smart grid is about.  We have documented complaints to the State and utilities that prove our symptoms we experienced was not pointing to the smart meters at the time.  We knew it was electromagnetic in nature because of the audible harmonics. Our power quality testing pointed to the utility side.  The report prompted The state to open another investigation,  not to our surprise, was all smoke and mirrors.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_weapon

Noise-induced neurologic disturbances in humans exposed to continuous low frequency tones for durations longer than 15 minutes has involved in some cases the development of immediate and long-term problems affecting brain tissue. The symptoms resembled those of individuals who had suffered minor head injuries. One theory for a causal mechanism is that the prolonged sound exposure resulted in enough mechanical strain to brain tissue to induce an encephalopathy.[14]

    Smart Meter GRID a Corporate PLOT – a Weapon for Psychotronic Harassment and Assaults on all Utility Customers

    While there are many corporations involved “Oati” is a national network and is now in place without anyone knowing
    about it. This was all done low profile through grants and contracts under the guise of “increased grid efficiency”, and
    all electric consumers will be paying for their own psychotronic harassment and assaults as well as coordinated spying,
    remote dictated “induced appliance breakage”, and intel spying (minute by minute).

    There are now many people disclosing information on advanced psychotronics that have been deployed.
    There are substantial amounts of documentation coming out about sci-tech, e-system, and the Fort Worth USAF “double-dippers”.

    The corporate power brokers aka bankers and mega corporations track whistle blower communications and suppress them through various means. For example (as the NASA War Plan) discloses people will be assaulted with high powered lasers, beamed weapons anytime anywhere. These are silent weapons for a quiet war now being waged on the global population . . .

    It’s important to understand why whistler blowers seem in short supply. . Many are being assaulted by a variety of psychotronic
    weapons, lasers – remote beam weapons and satellites
    . These weapons are at least 50 years ahead of what any of us
    have been told even exist . . .

    Some important individuals have been hit with psychotronics. Most important – we have learned the biggest problems were (in order of importance), remote phones from China which can be amped up, WI-Fi set at higher levels, smart meters, wireless printers even when off and cell phones left on closer than ten feet. People are reporting in increasing numbers that remote targeting with pulsed beam microwaves directed from cell phone towers which are triangulated or directly aimed from a “new neighbors” home are also used for electronic harassment and torture that cause illness and death all by remote control . .

    Despite what many might think there are numerous mid-level good guys in the various intel agencies who are leaking everything. Secrecy is now in the process of forever being eliminated as the whole system is breaking down from within.

    It is MOST important to read the “Silent Weapons Quiet Wars” a technical manual (www.StopTheCrime.net) that describes the intentions of the international bankers . . the manual explains how the plan of global manipulation, enslavement and genocide has been implemented . . . and how we are all being assaulted without realizing we are being subdued by a weapon . . .Now you know. THEY have told you what’s coming!

  2. Radio Frequency Transmissions Are Killing Trees And Everything Else

    January 17, 2015 42 Comments

    There are so many sources of radio frequency transmissions bombarding us from so many directions that they could never be fully identified or quantified. Life is electrical by nature, aren’t all these signals affecting the web of life? The answer is unarguably yes. If radio frequency transmissions can sicken and kill trees, what is it doing to us? The atmosphere is now much more conductive thanks to the constant spraying of metal nano particulates by jet aircraft. The ongoing climate engineering insanity is not only contaminating the entire planet, the exposure to this metallic fallout is making our own bodies more electrically conductive. This in turn makes us all more susceptible to damage from constant radio frequency exposure. As is the case with the trees that are dying all over the planet, our own health is also waning. Whether people admit it or not, whether they actually feel any affect or not, non of us are exempt from the slow and insidious damage that is occurring in our own bodies and throughout the web of life. The fate of the trees will soon enough be our own fate if the lethal technologies of the modern military/industrial era are not fully exposed for what they are, and then halted. There is no other choice, there is no other way forward. If the current paradigm is allowed to continue for much longer, there will be nothing left to salvage of life on Earth. The “Popular Science” article below documents only one small aspect of the ongoing assault against life on Earth, and as expected from a mainstream publication, they then make light of it. All will soon come to realize that what is unfolding around us all is absolutely not a joke.

    WI-FI RADIATION IS KILLING TREES, NEW STUDY FINDS

    Source: Popular Science, article by Dan Nosowitz

    Studies on the impact of wireless radiation on humans are endlessly inconclusive, but a recent study on the effects of Wi-Fi radiation on trees–yes, trees–indicates that our woody friends may be much more vulnerable than we are. And trees can’t even enjoy the benefits of Wi-Fi. It’s all very unjust.

    The study, conducted by Wageningen University, investigated findings that trees in areas with high Wi-Fi activity (urban areas, especially) were suffering from symptoms that couldn’t be tied to typical bacterial or viral causes. The symptoms included bleeding (!), fissures in the bark, the death of parts of leaves, and abnormal growth.

    dying forests

    To test the hypothesis that the mystery illness was caused by radiation poisoning, the researchers took 20 ash trees and exposed them to various kinds of radiation for three months. Sure enough, the ash trees exposed to Wi-Fi signals showed telltale signs of radiation sickness, including a “lead-like shine” on their leaves, indicating the oncoming death of those leaves. In the Netherlands, a whopping 70% of urban trees are suffering from radiation poisoning, up from only 10% five years ago–understandable, considering the explosion in Wi-Fi use in the past five years.

    Of course, trees in rural or even simply non-urban environments are pretty much unaffected, but theoretically, all deciduous trees in the Western world could be affected.

    The researchers are planning several more studies to figure out the precise effects of radiation on plant life. In the meantime, they don’t really offer any preliminary solutions, but I’m sure they’d approve of wrapping every urban tree you see in tin foil, root to leaf. (Note: Wrapping public trees in tin foil may be illegal in your city, state, arrondissement, or prefecture. PopSci cannot be held responsible if you are arrested for such activities.)

  3. This is further evidence which proves, once again, the noise pollution we speaks of aka, “The Smart Grid Syndrome” and or the “The Modern Day Hum.” Starting in 2006, the noise and dirty electricity radiation is pointed out below (The analog meter does not involve any electronics. Thus it does not create dirty electricity / noise on the line.)

    Itron, Centron, Digital, Meter, CL200, C1SBeginning in 2006, DTE ceased to install analog meters. This picture shows a commonly installed digital meter found in Michigan. We have measured the amount of dirty electricity (voltage transients and harmonics) generated by this meter in one home and have found that it does not generate the same dirty electricity associated with smart meters. We don’t know if this is the case for all these meters, but we think it likely is, probably because it does not collect the same fine-grained usage data as a smart meter. If engineers actually bothered to measure the voltage transients and harmonic generated by digital meters, we could give you a more definitive answer. If you think you have one of these meters, you may want to keep it instead of getting a new smart meter! The best thing to do is buy a Stetzer meter or a Trifield meter (or both) and measure the amount of line noise and the strength of the magnetic field in your home. The Stetzer meter will measure the the line noise (dirty electricity). The Trifield meter will measure the magnetic field and how much it fluctuates. A needle that fluctuates a lot means there is a very unstable, erratically pulsing magnetic field. Pulsing electromagnetic fields are very harmful to human health.

    DTE’s Digital Meter That Can Be Converted to a Smart Meter

    The Itron CL200 C1S meter is not a meter you want! This meter has been installed on homes for some time. Supposedly DTE is “upgrading” these to the Itron OpenWay meter, but we know of instances where DTE has installed this meter as the opt-out meter, despite DTE’s contention that it is converting all meters to “one meter type.”

    To know whether you have this meter, look at the picture. On the meter you will see: CL200 240V 3W TYPE C1S 30TA 1.0Kh. This meter is a digital meter that is capable of being converted to a smart meter by the addition of a “personality” module. We have measured the voltage transients and harmonics (dirty electricity / line noise) and magnetic fields generated by this meter. This meter is almost as bad as the smart meter. A woman who lives in a home with this meter has had her health severely affected by it, nearly as severely as by the smart meter that was previously installed on her home. Two other electrosensitive people who have gone to this home have also experienced severe problems. For a list of the health effects experienced by people when exposed to this meter, click here. Also read Rebecca’s story, Cynthia’s story, and Linda’s story for more detailed information. The woman who (tries) to live in this home spends most of her time travelling in order to avoid the degrading effects of this meter on her body. The digital meter (see previous entry) that looks similar to the CL200 C1S does not seem to generate the dirty electricity that the CL200 C1S does, probably because it is not measuring electricity usage in detail.

    Analog Meter (the meter most people have before a smart meter is installed)

    analog, electric, meter, mechanicalThe analog meter does not involve any electronics. Thus it does not create dirty electricity / noise on the line. However, note that some meters that look like analog meters actually have hidden transmitters. More on that in the next section. The “clock” dials on the meter indicate how much electricity you have consumed. Below the dials is a large rotating disk that spins faster as you use more energy on your property. The spinning of the disk (a mechanical movement) is how the meter measures your electrical usage. 1889, electromechanical, meter, analogThis is a picture of the analog meter (electromechanical meter) that, in similar form, has been used since 1889! DTE insiders tell us that the utility still has analog meters that were installed in the 1950s—that’s 60-plus years of accurate energy measurement. Note that there are now meters being made that have the dials on them (they look like analog meters) but actually record digitally. To our knowledge, none of these meters are being installed in Michigan. If you do not have an analog meter and want one on your home, you can consider replacing your meter.

    Analog Meters That Have Hidden Transmitters

    Some meters look like analog meters (and are in one sense analogs), but they have a hidden transmitter in them. These are the meters that have been installed by most rural electric cooperatives in Michigan, as well as some of the privately owned utilities. It is possible that some homes in DTE and Consumers territory also have these meters. These meters are discussed here and below, under Meters for Other Michigan Utilities. They include AMR, PLC, BPL, and TWACs.

    If you have had trouble sleeping for a decade or more, then one of these meters could be the culprit. (If you have wireless in your home, then that is a likely culprit as well.) These meters transmit wirelessly or by PLC (power-line communication), or by a combination of the two (TWACs). All of these methods create dirty electricity because they involve computer circuitry being installed in the meter. For an excellent discussion of these “stealth” meters, please go to http://www.eiwellspring.org/smartmeter/StealthMeters.htm, and also read this article in its entirety, as well as here, here, and here.. You can also visit Sal La Duca’s page on Turtle meters, where he notes that “a module on the meter would impress digital data right onto the power wiring. . . . The primary frequency was in the order of five to 9.5 Hz (5 – 9.5) and was either coded as a Morse-type intermittent signal, or continuous and modulated with the desired data. . . . [A]pplication of this form of AMR is waning, because data transport is slow. . . . [T]he frequency used for data cartage is within the range of brain waves, and since it is directly impressed on the power wiring, its conveyance is not only toward the electrical substation data collection point, but also toward the indoor living space.”

    Health Effects. An interesting note regarding the health effects of these meters has been contributed by one member of the Smart Meter Education Network: “I grew up in a home with an analog meter. I moved away in 1980, but each year I would go back to my parents’ home to visit them. At some point, I began to sleep better at their home than in my own. Then, suddenly, in 2002 I slept very poorly when I went to visit them. I attributed it to the break-up of a relationship. But every year thereafter, I would toss and turn all night. In 2012, I learned that a Turtle meter, an analog look-alike that transmits electricity usage over the power line [PLC] had been installed on their home in January 2002, the year I began sleeping poorly when I visited them.” Within a few years of the meter’s installation, her mother developed atrial fibrillation and her father developed high blood pressure. Both had always been in excellent health, were vegetarian, and kept themselves in good shape by hiking and doing daily farm and ranch work.

  4. SMART GRID NOISE POLLUTION IS AN ISSUE ENGINEERS CHOOSE TO IGNORE IN IMPLEMTATION OF SMART GRID PLC

    APPLICATION NOTE 5356

    Overcoming Smart Grid Communications Challenges with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and IEEE 1901.2

    By: Jim LeClare, Principal Member of Technical Staff, Smart Grid Solutions

    PLC Problems

    The obstacles involved in updating utility grid communications have roots that stretch back many years. Well before “smart grid,” “smart meter,” “eMeter,” “EV” (electric vehicle), and “PEV” (plug-in electric vehicle) became familiar terms, utility companies began investigating potential solutions to one of their most fundamental operating challenges: reliably maintaining efficient communications in rugged environments.

    For low-frequency (LF) PLCs, negative signal-to-noise (SNR) conditions are a recognized and expected problem in addition to varying impedance on the line; for PLCs through transformers, signal attenuation of 50dB or more is also common. Generally for PLCs, channel characteristics and parameters vary with frequency, location, time, and the type of equipment connected to it. Furthermore, the power line is a very frequency-selective channel, with channel noise, background noise, and impulsive noise often occurring at 50Hz/60Hz and group delays lasting up to several hundred microseconds.

    These conditions on which LF PLC must operate can be best understood from measurements taken on the line, starting with channel noise on the low-voltage line, as illustrated in Figure 1.

    Paul Vonharnish said,

    Hello Pat: Yes. The power grid has had massive infrastructure investment in the past year, and it is not a pretty picture. The situation you describe is being imposed upon many communities and persons against their consent and knowledge of the agenda driving these investments and augmentations.
    The system hum is audible to some, and is broadcast at just below background noise or at human threshold of hearing. These frequencies are designed to impair cognitive function and cause problems with anxiety and sleep disturbance. Many of these psychotropic frequencies are now power line generated communications signals for “smart meter” intrusions into your life. See Josh del Sol’s excellent documentary “Take Back Your Power” available at his web site for just $2.99 as a gift rental to yourself and/or others.

    You do not disclose your current location. ? The frequencies in my current situation are operating as multi-tone with some mixed harmonics. The fundamental pulse is extremely low frequency (perhaps 17 Hz) and is next to impossible to shield without exotic methods. The seventh harmonic (HUM) is approximately 120 cycles. 5th and 7th (odd harmonic) frequencies are quite unnatural to the human sensory and auditory system. Audible 217 Hz has been reported in many countries. The site below is a convenient way to match audible frequencies to what most people are told is tinnitus. Just slide the frequency bar back and forth until you get a match. You may have to up the volume slider for high frequency, as the human ear loses sensitivity at higher frequencies. Many people are complaining of a high frequency ringing at approximately 9250 Hz. Doctors are clueless as usual, and attribute it to tinnitus. This is not tinnitus, nor is it imaginary.

    You mention a concern that you may not be willing to relocate, and that is certainly understandable. However: The situation you describe is most likely not amendable without a massive investment in whole-house shielding, and even if you were able to do so, you are now a prisoner in your own home.

    Thanks Lloyd and Paul for your replies to my concerns.
    I sincerely appreciate your advice and have been doing much research not only on your sight but also others as well.

    I live in the High Desert of California, south of Barstow. It is a horrible thought that one buys a home, furnishes it, improves upon it – at a great cost, loves the home as family and friends are close by, especially being an advanced age of 70. Then having to have it destroyed by such evil to humanity. And utterly without regard for public health and welfare and, as you say…no public input. Then again with such evil at the top of the food chain, what does one do besides try to keep as healthy as possible and in prayer to the A,mighty.

    THE LILLY WAVE – Lilly’s Website on Electrical Stimulation of the Brain (Here) (Here)

    Excerpt:

    The goal was to find an electric current waveform with which animals could be stimulated through implanted electrodes for several hours per day for several months without causing irreversible changes in threshold by the passage of current through the tissue.

    Many waveforms, including 60-cps. sine-wave current could apparently be used safely for these limited schedules of stimulation. They could not be used for the intensive, long-term schedule of chronic stimulation.

    Electric current passed through the brain can cause at least two distinct types of injury: thermal and electrolytic.

    The technical problem in chronic brain stimulation is to stay above the excitatory threshold and below the injury threshold in the neuronal system under consideration. This result can be achieved most easily by the proper choice of waveforms and their time courses; and less easily by the choice of the range of repetition frequencies and train durations.

    The previous wave forms used in neurophysiology and in neurosurgery injured the neurons when unidirectional current passed through the brain.

    Dr. Lilly developed a new electrical wave form to balance the current, first in one direction and then, after a brief interval, in the other. Thus ions moving in the neurons would first be pushed one way and then quickly the other way, stimulating the neurons and leaving the ions in their former positions within the neurons. This new wave form was called a balanced bidirectional pulse pair, or the Lilly Wave.

    Microscopic studies of brains stimulated with this balanced pulse pair showed that there was no injury of the neuronai networks from this kind of stimulation.

    Waveform of stimulating current: pulse pairs of current resulting from quasi-differentiation, with passive electrical elements, of a rectangular pulse. Measured at 2 percent of the peak, the duration of the positive pulse (upward) is 34 µsec, and the duration of the negative pulse (downward) is 28 µse

    AUTHOR, NOAM CHOMSKY: Media Control, Second Edition: The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda

    Noam Chomsky’s backpocket classic on wartime propaganda and opinion control begins by asserting two models of democracy—one in which the public actively participates, and one in which the public is manipulated and controlled. According to Chomsky, “propaganda is to democracy as the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state,” and the mass media is the primary vehicle for delivering propaganda in the United States. From an examination of how Woodrow Wilson’s Creel Commission “succeeded, within six months, in turning a pacifist population into a hysterical, war-mongering population,” to Bush Sr.’s war on Iraq, Chomsky examines how the mass media and public relations industries have been used as propaganda to generate public support for going to war. Chomsky further touches on how the modern public relations industry has been influenced by Walter Lippmann’s theory of “spectator democracy,” in which the public is seen as a “bewildered herd” that needs to be directed, not empowered; and how the public relations industry in the United States focuses on “controlling the public mind,” and not on informing it. Media Control is an invaluable primer on the secret workings of disinformation in democratic societies.

    Edward Bernays mug-b“If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it… In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons … who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.” — Edward Bernays

    NSA “Sonic-Wave” Weapon Use In Baltimore Horrifies Russia

    EXCERPTS:

    The LRAD vehicles deployed by the NSA around Baltimore yesterday, this report further explains, is a sonic weapon developed to send messages, warnings, and harmful, pain-inducing tones over longer distances than normal loudspeakers. LRAD systems have been used to counter piracy, as non-lethal crowd control weapons, and as communication devices too.

    Making these particular LRAD weapon vehicles deployed by the NSA around Baltimore even more dangerous, SVR analyst in this report say, was their “electronic signature” showing that they were equipped with a new technology developed by Raytheon in 2011 that produces a low-frequency sound which resonates with the respiratory tract, making it hard to breathe. According to Raytheon’s patent, the intensity of this sonic weapon could be increased from causing discomfort to the point where targets become “temporarily incapacitated”.

    NSA “Sonic-Wave” Weapon Use In Baltimore Horrifies Russia

    Posted by EU Times on Apr 28th, 2015 // 15 Comments

    The Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) states in a new report today that they were “horrified” over the use by the United States National Security Agency (NSA) of a powerful mass-psychology weapon against unsuspecting American citizens yesterday in Baltimore, Maryland, which caused these people, who were mostly school children, to erupt in a crazed frenzy of rioting, burning and looting.

    According to this report, the SVR was first alerted Sunday morning by signal intelligence analysts operating from the Federations Embassy in Washington D.C. that the NSA was in the process of completing their “final preparations” for a “mass event” believed to be scheduled for Monday, 27 April, in or around Baltimore.

    1 Title indicated in contract between Health Canada and the Royal Society of Canada.

    Thank you, Mr. Chair.

    I speak on behalf of the Planetary Association for Clean Energy.
    Your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

    We welcome the current review process for the Safety “code”, essentially unchanged since 1979 which has as its origin:

    post-war Secretary of State /Communications Canada / Industry Canada’s concerns on non-interference between telecommunication systems for the national grid (radio & television, telephony and communication, radar),
     the advice of NAZI scientists emerging out of detention and extermination camp in vivo human body experiments under the U.S. “Paperclip” project when requested to develop parameters for the spectrum’s usage, and
     the ICNIRP (registered as a German social club that has WHO NGO affiliation) that produces impressive manifestos that even its head, Paulo Vecchia emphasizes that their own guidelines, “are not mandatory prescriptions for safety”, were never intended to be of any “medical collateral values” and are based on, ”acute thermal values” (i.e. death or near-death) within 6 minutes as estimated in laboratories using “phantom” heads (conductive liquid-filled plastic dolls).

    In the meantime, this “code” has drifted into new circumstances.
    Noting that the Council of Europe and the European Parliament Resolution 1815 (2011) indicates a maximum of 1 W/cm2, and noting that in contrast with the natural, healthy/risk free background broadband microwave (300 MHz to 3 GHz) power density level of less than 0.000001 W/cm2 since 1979:

    Average urban emissions rose from 0.005 W/cm2 to 1W/cm2 , from 1980 to 1999 (before the implementation of cellphones).
    In 2011, average indoor background residential fields – even without indoor wireless devices – ranged between 0.01 to over 4.0 W/cm2.
    In 2013, outdoor levels are between 0.1 to over 15.0 W/cm2, at 1 meter above ground. Under some HV powerlines and in some major traffic corridors (Gardiner Expressway) levels approach or exceed 1,000 W/cm2.
    In some suburbs, at head level, power density can range between 40 to 100 W/cm2 in view of Neighbourhood Area Networks / NAN (from SMART meters, Wi-Fi, routers, etc) and is expected to rise another 20 to 50 fold by 2015, based on industry forecasts.

    An Ottawa case: a residence built as a federal housing demo for the electrosensitive is a bay of SMART meters, whose power density levels have risen:
    January 2012 (20 W/cm2)
    July 2013 (40 W/cm2)
    October 2013 (80 W/cm2 – with Total Harmonic Distortion of up 4,500 W/cm2)
    Above increases may be cross-talks with neighbouring wireless devices (LAN/NAN).

    When emissions exceed current limits, there is no available recourse. No federal jurisdiction and oversight exists. Relief is humanitarian mercy – not an option that the sick and afflicted individuals can rely on. The code is imposed on tens of millions of Canadians in a way that available jurisprudence could implicate manslaughter charges on those designing, regulating and applying it. Note the 1947 Nuremburg Code (Medical) states that exposing people without informing them how this electromagnetic spectrum can affect their health & without their consent is a contravention (intended to forbid the experience committed by the NAZIs).

    The “code” is not drafted like an Electrical Code to explain implementation. It does not foresee special cases or applications. It assumes young healthy male bodies (soldiers) exposed to a single device for less than 6 minutes or equivalent, not reality.

    It ignores damages incurred at endorsed emission levels: modification of DNA in humans, animals or plants, accelerated population aging, Alzheimer’s, psycho-social behavioural problems, neurodegenerative diseases, fertility and reproduction problems, immune systems disorders, insomnia and electro-hypersensitivity and between the use of wireless systems and certain types of cancer, including brain, auditory nerve, and parotid gland tumours. It tolerates: acceleration of corrosion of strategic infrastructures, buildings, bridges, pipelines and of nuclear power stations, at an estimated public purse maintenance cost of billions if not trillions of dollars. Agriculture is also adversely affected: soil, cultivation, production and processing.

    Emission sources have risen from the few thousand for which the code was intended in 1979 to over 100,000,000 transmitters, resulting in a biologically significant, un-studied phenomenon of random, continuous microwave exposure from any direction.

    There is a need to develop a regulatory framework that includes all aspects related to the spectrum encompassed under the current Safety Code 6, one which is up-to-date and consistent with the emerging introduction of new telephony, devices, and their supporting infrastructures.
    Such a framework should follow the Aarhus Convention2.

    There is also a need for an independent secretariat mechanism for the inter-disciplinary determination of the health consequences on the general population of these wireless technologies and for a major investigation to be carried out into the biological effects on human, animal and plant organisms.

    Such an investigation and resulting report requires the need for a fair representation of all stakeholders involved, for transparency and effective oversight in order to assess the scientific integrity to help forestall possible conflicts of interests or fraud in the research sector.

    Public and ecosystems are to be protected from adverse effects of existing and other emerging technologies. In the light of continuously evolving findings of new medical studies we encourage solutions based on dialogue and negotiations involving UN agencies like World Health Organisation (WHO), the International Labour Organisation (ILO), as well as the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and other UN agencies, governments, industry stakeholders, NGOs, consumer and residents associations. Industry stakeholders can already influence certain factors (e.g. distance between a given site and transmitters, the direction of a transmitting antenna in relation to living environments) to better protect people and animals.

    Switched-mode power supply

    Advantages and disadvantages[edit]

    The main advantage of the switching power supply is greater efficiency because the switching transistor dissipates little power when acting as a switch. Other advantages include smaller size and lighter weight from the elimination of heavy line-frequency transformers, and lower heat generation due to higher efficiency. Disadvantages include greater complexity, the generation of high-amplitude, high-frequency energy that the low-pass filter must block to avoid electromagnetic interference (EMI), a ripple voltage at the switching frequency and the harmonic frequencies thereof.

    Very low cost SMPSs may couple electrical switching noise back onto the mains power line, causing interference with A/V equipment connected to the same phase. Non-power-factor-corrected SMPSs also cause harmonic distortion.

    Switched-mode power supply http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply
    _______________________________________________________

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A switched-mode power supply (switching-mode power supply, switch-mode power supply, SMPS, or switcher) is an electronic power supply that incorporates a switching regulator to convert electrical power efficiently. Like other power supplies, an SMPS transfers power from a source, like mains power, to a load, such as a personal computer, while converting voltage and current characteristics. Unlike a linear power supply, the pass transistor of a switching-mode supply continually switches between low-dissipation, full-on and full-off states, and spends very little time in the high dissipation transitions, which minimizes wasted energy. Ideally, a switched-mode power supply dissipates no power. Voltage regulation is achieved by varying the ratio of on-to-off time. In contrast, a linear power supply regulates the output voltage by continually dissipating power in the pass transistor. This higher power conversion efficiency is an important advantage of a switched-mode power supply. Switched-mode power supplies may also be substantially smaller and lighter than a linear supply due to the smaller transformer size and weight.

    Switching regulators are used as replacements for linear regulators when higher efficiency, smaller size or lighter weight are required. They are, however, more complicated; their switching currents can cause electrical noise problems if not carefully suppressed, and simple designs may have a poor power factor.

    In addition to the increase in harmonic generators and network resonances, electric

    systems and loads have become no less, and in some cases even more, sensitive to

    harmonics. There are a number of areas of new and continuing concern:

    • Computers, computer-controlled machine tools, and various types of digital

    controllers are especially susceptible to harmonics, as well as to other types of

    interference. (don’t forget smart meters…sandaura)

    • Harmonics can cause damaging dielectric heating in underground cables.

    • Inductive metering can be adversely affected by harmonics.

    • Capacitor bank failures are frequently caused by harmonics.

    • Less conservative designs for rotating machines and transformers aggravate

    heating problems caused by harmonics.

    • Harmonics can be especially troublesome to communication systems.

    Today’s harmonics problems may have more serious and widespread consequences

    than in the past. System planners and designers should be able to recognize and avoid

    or mitigate such problems.

    The effects of harmonics are divided into four general categories:

    • effects on the power system itself

    • effects on consumer load

    • effects on communication circuits

    • effects on revenue billing

    On the power system, harmonic currents are the main culprit, causing equipment overheating and thermal loss-of-life. This may be a concern for motors or transformers. The impact is worse when network resonances amplify harmonic currents. Harmonics may also interfere with relaying and metering to some degree. Harmonics can also cause thyristor firing errors in converter and SVC installations, metering inaccuracies, and false tripping of protective devices. The performance of consumer equipment, such as motor drives and computer power supplies, can be adversely affected by harmonics. In addition, harmonic currents flowing on power lines can induce noise on nearby communication lines. Harmonic voltage distortion may cause equipment insulation stress, particularly in capacitors. When harmonics cause the voltage impressed on the capacitor bank to be distorted, the peak voltage may be high enough to cause a partial discharge, or corona, within the capacitor dielectric. This may eventually result in a short circuit at the edges of the foil and failure of the capacitor bank. High harmonic currents cause fuse blowing in capacitor banks. This results in a loss of reactive power supply to the system which may cause other problems. Harmonic voltage distortion can effect revenue billing by introducing error into kilowatt hour metering systems that rely upon accurate discernment.

  13. Wind turbines produce “pure tone” noise and infrasound. This is why it is a public health hazard. The Federal Government has regulations to protect us from this pollution, but are failing to enforce the law! Many States have adopted these laws. The smart grid is radiating the same thing. The majority of the population is currently exposed to the pure tone noise via the Smart Grid 24/7 It is a serious health real issue,willfully being neglected by our Government….Sandaura

    Expert Panel finds that annoyance can be caused by wind turbine noise — a clear adverse health effect

    Ottawa (April 9, 2015) – A new expert panel report, Assessing the Evidence: Wind Turbine Noise, released today by the Council of Canadian Academies provides an in-depth examination of 32 potential adverse health effects linked to wind turbine noise. For most of the identified symptoms, the evidence is inadequate to draw a direct link between wind turbine noise and a negative health effect.

    However, there is sufficient evidence of a causal relationship between exposure to such noise and annoyance.

    Determining whether wind turbine noise causes adverse health effects is an important issue as demand for renewable energy, including wind power, is expected to grow in Canada and around the world. The wind sector has expanded rapidly since the 1990s, and Canada is now the fifth-largest global market for the installation of wind turbines. With this demand, however, come concerns that the presence of wind turbines may pose a public health risk to nearby residents. In response to public concern, Health Canada asked the Council of Canadian Academies to conduct an in-depth expert panel assessment to evaluate the evidence and identify gaps in knowledge.

    “The Panel looked at what had been written on the potential health effects of exposure to wind turbines, in the scientific literature, legal cases, and the most informative public documents,” said Dr. Tee Guidotti, Expert Panel Chair. “We identified 32 health issues and then analyzed the published peer reviewed studies on each problem to determine if there was evidence for a causal relationship with wind turbine noise.”

    The Panel’s report stresses that, given the nature of the sound produced by wind turbines and the limited quality of available evidence, the health impacts of wind turbine noise cannot be comprehensively assessed and further information and study are required.

    The Panel outlined 11 main findings discussed in the full report. Some findings include:

    1. The evidence is sufficient to establish a causal relationship between exposure to wind turbine noise and annoyance.

    2. There is limited evidence to establish a causal relationship between exposure to wind turbine noise and sleep disturbance.

    3. The evidence suggests a lack of causality between exposure to wind turbine noise and hearing loss.

    4. For all other health effects considered (fatigue, tinnitus, vertigo, nausea, dizziness, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, etc.), the evidence was inadequate to come to any conclusion about the presence or absence of a causal relationship with exposure to wind turbine noise.

    5. Technological development is unlikely to resolve, in the short term, the current issues related to perceived adverse health effects of wind turbine noise.

    6. Impact assessments and community engagement provide communities with greater knowledge and control over wind energy projects and therefore help limit annoyance.

    The Expert Panel’s assessment was extensive; they considered a wide range of evidence and developed a rigorous methodology for their work. The resulting report provides key information and insights on what is known and not known about wind turbine noise and its possible impacts on human health. The foundation of knowledge contained in the report can support all levels of government, the scientific community, industry, and community stakeholders as future policies, regulations, and research agendas are considered.

  14. Biological Effects of Microwaves:
    Thermal and Nonthermal Mechanisms*
    A Report by an Independent Investigator
    by John Michael Williams
    jmmwill@comcast.net
    Wilsonville, Oregon
    2013-11-08
    Copyright

    As documented in many peer-reviewed studies below, and experienced by the present author, microwaves can be heard. The apparent loudness can be almost deafening. Microwaves also can have distinct, often painful, tactile effects not resembling anything attributable to heat. Some of the author’s own experience in measuring these effects has been posted online (Williams, 2013). A correspondent of the author claims he has observed handheld radar sets being used to flush deer from underbrush during hunting season. As will be shown, whereas such claims individually might be true or false, there
    is no more reason to doubt them a priori than to doubt the sanity of radar operators. More recently, concerns have arisen about the safety of cell phones (Stewart, 2000 as updated by Swerdlow, 2003; Hyland, 2001; Adey, 2003; see also Barnett, 1994), and even of LORAN transmissions (Dawes, 2001).

    These concerns, actually often fears, are being stoked by rumors about covert use of portable radar by soldiers or police (Burton and
    Ohlke, 2000; Eisley, 2001; Jones, 2005), and by public but ambiguous announcements of military weaponry based on microwaves (Sirak, 2001), although such weaponry, even if effective, likely would be illegal in military engagement (Williams, 2001). The underlying fear here revolves around the possibility of serious intentional injury or death delivered by microwave transmitting devices, with no forensic methodology to recognize the symptoms or identify the cause.

  15. Timely information-please share widely Millennial generation time to wake up!

    This is a link to some of the most important information we need to know to make sense of the corruption and complete breakdown of our government(s) ability to function “for the people”. Robert Morningstar, whose bio is posted below, was a guest at a conference, “Secret Space Program and Breakaway Civilization Conference”, composed of highly regarded scientists and researchers, coming together to share their knowledge of ET presence. The conference link is: http://www.markmccandlish.com/Events

    Robert expressed this thought, answering a question that Deborah Tavares posed, questioning who is really in control of us? which I highlighted, following are my thoughts….

    We are talking about Ethics, not science, here. We can’t argue “Moral relativity” We should be able to recognize this. [Maybe, this is the key to all our problems in dealing with trying to get positive results with issues that impact the quality of our lives. We are approaching our issues from the wrong angle. We don’t need to prove or not prove what science is determining for us. It is up to us to recognize the corrupt politician over the morally correct politician!!!!! That is all. Screw the science and them hiding behind falsehoods and bogus science to oppress us from the truth!. This applies to all interest groups, activists fighting for their individual cause. Divide and conquer is a military tactic that is used successfully time and time again. It is being used against us. We need to connect with every group fighting for human rights and realize we are all fighting for the same thing and look at the bigger picture. Those who think this is too overwhelming to overcome; we must change our thinking and remember that we don’t have to argue the science; we only have to recognize those with no moral relativity….Sandaura]

  17. COMMON COMPLAINT AFTER SMART METER INSTALLATION-AUDIBLE RINGING!!!

    MAJOR COMPLAINT AFTER SMART METER INSTALLATION IS THE CONSTANT AUDIBLE “RINGING” BEING HEARD.

    Ringing (signal)

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Electricity[edit]

    In electrical circuits, ringing is an unwanted oscillation of a voltage or current. It happens when an electrical pulse causes the parasitic capacitances and inductances in the circuit (i.e. those that are not part of the design, but just by-products of the materials used to construct the circuit) to resonate at their characteristic frequency.[1] Ringing artifacts are also present in square waves; see Gibbs phenomenon.

    Ringing is undesirable because it causes extra current to flow, thereby wasting energy and causing extra heating of the components; it can cause unwanted electromagnetic radiation to be emitted[citation needed]; it can delay arrival at a desired final state (increase settling time); and it may cause unwanted triggering of bistable elements in digital circuits. Ringy communications circuits may suffer falsing.

    Ringing can be due to signal reflection, in which case it may be minimized by impedance matching.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ringing_(signal)

  18. Tim Rifat wrote in his Microwave Mind Control in the UK article http://www.brazilboycott.org/ that cellular phones use 435 MHz. UK police use 450 MHz exclusively. Dr. Ross Adey used this for CIA behavioral modification experiments. Police have a vast array of antennae to broadcast this frequency all over the UK. Adey used 0.75mW/cm2 intensity of pulse modulate microwave at a frequency of 450 MHz, with an ELF modulation to control all aspects of human behavior. 450 MHZ radar modulated at 60 Hz greatly reduced T-lymphocyte activity to kill cultured cancer cells. A study of USA 60 Hz powerlines repeated this finding.

  19. INCREASED AND UNEXPLAINED GAS EXPLOSION NATIONWIDE? THIS MAY BE THE CAUSE!

    1. Introduction
    European ecological regulations meant to protect nature and wild life along with construction cost reduction policies generated a set of government regulations that limit the access to new transmission and distribution corridors. As a result, gas, water or oil supply pipelines are forced to share the same distribution corridors with Electrical Power Lines
    (EPL), AC Railway Systems or Telecommunication Lines (figure 1).
    Fig. 1. Common distribution corridor. Right of way. The electromagnetic fields generated by high voltage electrical power lines produce AC interference in the nearby metallic structures. Therefore, in many cases these underground
    or above ground utilities supply Metal Pipelines (MP) are exposed to effects of induced AC currents and voltages (CIGRÉ 1995, Dawalibi & Southey 1989). Especially in case of power line faults, the resulting AC voltage in unprotected pipelines may reach thousands of volts. http://www.intechopen.com
    Recurrent Neural Networks and Soft Computing 254 This could be dangerous on both the operating personnel (that may be exposed to electric
    shocks), and to the structural integrity of the pipeline, due to corrosion. Underground steel pipelines are in permanent contact with the electrolyte solution from the soil, so proper protection measures are necessary in order to limit the induced current densities, which are the cause of electrochemical corrosion. Uncontrolled corrosion of supply pipelines may cause gas or/and oil spills with very serious ecological and economic implications.
    (Baboian 2002, Collet et al. 2001)
    In order to provide proper protection for pipelines the AC interference has to be well known. Normally, the electromagnetic interference between electrical power lines and nearby metallic pipelines could be generated by any of the following three types of couplings (CIGRÉ 1995):
     Inductive Coupling: Aerial and underground pipelines that run parallel to or in close proximity to transmission lines or cables are subjected to induced voltages by the time varying magnetic fields produced by the transmission line currents. The induced electromotive forces (EMF) causes current circulation in the pipeline and voltages between the pipeline and surrounding earth.
     Conductive Coupling: When a ground fault occurs in the electrical power system the
    current flowing through the grounding grid produce a potential rise on both the
    grounding grid and the neighbouring soil with regard to remote earth. If the pipeline goes through the “zone of influence” of this potential rise, then a high difference in the electrical potential can appear across the coating of the pipeline metal. Capacitive Coupling: Affects only above ground pipelines situated next to overhead power lines. It occurs due to the capacitance between the power line and the pipeline. For underground pipelines the effect of capacitive coupling may be neglected, because of the screening effect of the earth. In case of interferences between EPLs under normal operating conditions and underground pipelines, only the inductive coupling described by the self and mutual impedance matrix has to be taken into consideration. Conductive and capacitive interference may be, also,
    neglected when a ground fault happens significantly away from the common corridor.

    Computation of the Capacitive Coupling in Conductors Installed nearby AC Power Lines

    In this paper, a finite element computer model was built to compute the capacitive coupling component produced on unburied pipeline installed nearby AC power transmission lines. Moreover, an experimental reduced-scale rig was also built to verify the computer modeling approach. A good correlation between the experimental and software based simulated results is obtained which validates the modeling approach of coupling between power transmission line and unburied pipeline

  21. Radio-frequency common-mode noise propagation model for power-line cable

    Electromagnetic-interference (EMI) radiation from a power-line communications (PLC) network has been a major concern for the widespread use of broadband PLC technology. It is also well known that the dominant radiation mode of the PLC network is common mode (CM) by nature. Therefore, for electromagnetic-compatibility planning purposes, knowledge of the CM noise propagation path of the power line in the frequency range of 1 to 30 MHz is essential to provide insight of EMI radiation emitted by the power line. Based on a two-current-probe measurement approach, the CM noise propagation model for a three-wire power-line cable can be derived and represented by an equivalent two-wire CM transmission line. The equivalent CM noise propagation model allows us to predict the CM noise current on the power line with reasonable accuracy. The model will serve as a valuable tool in the future to identify effective ways to suppress EMI radiation from the PLC network.

  22. The government, both Federal, State and Local agencies, elected and appointed officials, Doctors, audio engineers, electrical engineers are ignoring the present Global Health Hazard caused by the re-radiating emissions of RF both, wired and wireless infrastructure of the Smart Grid Network. Thousands upon millions suffering the ill effects have lost their ability to live a healthy and peaceful existence. This issue is the cause of strained and destroyed, friendships, relationships, loss of home and ability to earn an income, loss of ability to enjoy public places. Loss of sanctuary in our own homes. Then, to further the abuse, be flogged by arm chair quarterback and pseudo, quasi know-it-alls who try to pigeon hole the diverse group of victims into a condescending category to further try to diminish their reality of truth and the truth of what is actually happening to all living things on this planet!! Our collective sense of responsibility and caring has been divided into ignorance, deceit, laziness and apathy. We would not be in this mess if majority of the population were not lulled into a state of oblivion. But, what is unconscionable is the fact, when an authorities and private citizens are faced with a choice of doing the right thing; the easier road is taken. I don’t enjoy spending my time trying to convince strangers of this depressing news and information. But, I feel there is no other choice, but to fight the corruption and perpetrators who have stolen my civil and human rights.

    Are the Dangers of Electromagnetic Radiation A Factor for Your Health?

    The dangers of electromagnetic radiation are becoming very evident and associated with many diseases and health problems. Some say it is scientifically impossible for electromagnetic radiation (EMR) to affect us. Some studies prove the cell damage EMF causes. But I don’t need to see any studies to know about the dangers of electromagnetic radiation. I WAS THE STUDY – and continue to be on a daily basis.

    I Was the Study!

    Electromagnetic radiation gave me cancer, within three weeks of exposure to a very strong field, and electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). Though my cancer is now gone, every exposure to electric, magnetic, wireless or ionizing radiation causes my old cancer spots to ache and ‘feel sick’ again – instantly (depending on the strength of the exposure).

    Over a two year period, I reduced, eliminated and regained various cancers several times because of EMF radiation in my environment. As I felt the EMF radiation turning my tissue into unhealthy tissue, my tests would prove the cancer was back or had grown. When I reduced the radiation exposure drastically, discharged each exposure and repaired and eliminated the damaged cells, my test would show exactly what I felt – the cancer was gone or almost gone.

    God gave me this clear picture of the harm of EMF and then taught me what to do to keep myself safe and to heal the damage. This website provides you with the information you need for EMF protection so you don’t have to go through what I did. And if you are already there – I can help you to have the most normal life possible in a world maxed out with EMF radiation. Excessive EMF radiation can change your life forever! It can take many years or just one strong exposure. In today’s world, EMF protection is a must!

    Associated EMF Health Problems

    The following list represents diseases and health problems that are either a direct result of electromagnetic radiation poisoning or are closely associated with it. Keep in mind that all health issues will be affected to some degree by exposure to EMF radiation, whether electric, magnetic, wireless or ionizing radiation, since it weakens the immune system, stresses the body and damages healthy cells.
    •cancer
    •alzheimer’s
    •parkinson’s
    •fibromyalgia
    •chronic fatigue
    •daily headaches
    •brain cancer
    •lyme disease
    •asthma
    •heart problems
    •chest pain
    •insomnia
    •allergies
    •electrosensitivity (ES)/electromagnetic hypersensitivitiy (EHS)
    •multiple sclerosis (see Copper depletion by EMF)
    •high blood pressure
    •brain fog
    •ADD/ADHD
    •forgetfulness
    •digestive disorders
    •migraine headaches
    •brain tumors
    •leukemia – general
    •lymphoblastic leukemia
    •birth defects
    •miscarriages
    •stress
    •nausea
    •rheumatoid arthritis
    •lupus
    •fatigue
    •skin conditions – burning, rashes, pain
    •tinnitus and other audible noises
    •chronic pain
    •erratic pulse
    •weak immune system

    Factors that Encourage the Dangers of Electromagnetic Radiation

    Though every person’s cells are affected by electromagnetic radiation, each is affected at different ‘speeds’. Here are some of the factors that encourage a faster or stronger reaction to EMF exposures.
    •High stress levels
    •Low iodine levels
    •Heavy metal toxicity
    •Having lyme disease
    •Weakened immune system
    •High total EMF exposure (How full is your radiation ‘cup’?)
    •One or more single incident of very strong exposure
    •Having other pre-existing health problems

    In summary

    I have dealt with many clients having major health problems who were in high EMF radiation levels on a regular basis and found they could not get better until they drastically reduced the high electromagnetic radiation from their environment.

    In summary, the dangers of electromagnetic radiation are a major factor in many diseases and health problems. Testing the radiation in your environment is the only way to know what levels you are exposed to. More about detectors that measure EMF radiation in your environment here. Consider high EMF radiation exposures as a possible fibromyalgia cause, a source of daily headaches, as what causes lyme disease to become symptomatic, one cause of leukemia, and brain cancer should always be considered as one of the dangers of cell phones.

    For many with the above health problems, drastically reducing high EMF radiation levels in your environment, adding some important supplements for protection from EMF, and then correcting your body’s natural electromagnetic fields (Click here for best way to correct EMF’s) may be all you need to be on the road to recovery.

  23. EPA IS A USELESS POWERLESS AGENCY. A waste of tax payers monies. You are hypocrites, criminals by association. In the pockets of powerful lobbyists and special interests groups!!!! How dare you write about what is harmful to us and then not enforce your laws on those who are harming us.
    Faceless, cowards. your actions will be on you and for which you have been part of. You have ignored our suffering. WE have voiced our problem of this noise pollution with your agency and you do nothing in return. The most invasive and dangerous pollutant are the power-lines which are carrying this noise and re-radiating into the air 24/7 non stop, 365 days a week. We, along with others have called your agency, emailed, written letters and it has fallen on DEAF EARS. We deserve better. We are served by lesser, morally bankrupt, corrupt scum.

    What Did You Say?! How Noise Pollution Is Harming You

    These 10 habits can protect your hearing.

    Post published by Meg Selig on Sep 25, 2013 in Changepower

    My body was vibrating. My ears were ringing. My brain was numb. My heart was pounding.

    No, I was not ill nor had I just fallen in love. I was still experiencing the after-effects of a one-hour dinner in a high-noise environment—a sports bar with loud raucous talk and laughter augmented by chukka-chukka music in the background that our waiter insisted could not be turned down. I was surprised—and angry—at how painful just one hour of noise pollution could be.

    This experience motivated me to question our “noise habits.” What were the side effects of exposure to such ear-splitting cacophony? And what could we do to protect our hearing?

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines “noise” as “unwanted or disturbing sound.” Since we can’t see noise, we are often oblivious to its effects on us, even if the noise is “wanted.” But the major side-effects of noise pollution are serious and sometimes surprising. The three most shocking facts I discovered are:
    1.The leading cause of hearing loss is not aging but noise.
    2.Excessive noise can lead to a whole host of other serious health problems. These include coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, stress-related health conditions such as migraine, colitis, and ulcers, and decreased sleep and sleep quality.
    3.Excessive noise can lead to emotional problems such as mental fatigue, anxiety
    , and aggression.

    How does noise pollution cause hearing loss? According to the NIDCD, sounds that are too loud or last for too long damage the hair cells in our ears that are responsible for transmitting sound to the brain. These hair cells are sensitive and, once damaged, they cannot grow back.

    Why is excessive noise to hazardous to your physical health? The reason is that noise causes a stress response. You hear a loud sound, and a stress cascade begins—adrenalin is released, blood vessels constrict, muscles tense, and blood pressure rises. We are not fully in control of this stress response: “Even though noise may have no relationship to danger, the body will respond automatically to noise as a warning signal.”

    Why is excessive noise hazardous to your emotional health? Noise is associated with increased aggression, decreased helpful behavior, reduced motivation and task performance, and even impaired cognitive development in children. Moreover, hearing loss, whether caused by noise pollution or aging, can be a psychological problem as well as a physical problem. A person who suffers from hearing loss may tend to isolate himself, feel lonely, and, in extreme cases, even succumb more easily to depression. (For more on the effects of loneliness, see this blog.)

    Some age-related hearing loss is inevitable, but noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is 100% preventable. Once it occurs, you can’t reverse it, but you can prevent your hearing from deteriorating further. Here are 10 habits that will reduce your risk:
    1.Do a simple noise assessment in your home or office from time to time throughout the day. Stop for a moment. Listen. Is there background noise that could be eliminated or ameliorated? (Did you leave the sprinkler on?!)
    2.Avoid places with a high noise level or limit your exposure.
    3.When you find yourself raising your voice over noise, that’s a clue that noise pollution could be harming your hearing. Beat a hasty retreat if you can.
    4.Wear ear plugs (which fit in the ear) or ear muffs (which fit over the ear) in sound-polluted environments. Plan to bring noise-cancelling plugs/muffs when noise is unavoidable, such as on airplane flights.
    5.Plan for “quiet time” every day. Give yourself a break from even “good noise” (sorry about the oxymoron) such as your beloved music. Turn off the TV.
    6.Avoid ear-busters such as hair dryers, food processors, and leaf-blowers, or use them sparingly or with ear protection. This is not a trivial suggestion. The level at which noise can cause permanent hearing loss begins at about 85 decibels, typical of a hair dryer, food processor or kitchen blender.
    7.Buy appliances with low noise ratings. If you have a timer on your dishwasher, set it so you will be away from the kitchen while it does its dirty work.
    8.Turn down the volume on TVs, portable music players, and other sound systems. How low can you go and still hear comfortably? Experiment.
    9.Protect children. Noisy environments affect children’s ability to learn and their ability to cope with normal challenges. Educate children about caring for their ears.
    10.Walk away from noise: If the outside environment is noisy, go inside and/or close windows. If the inside environment is noisy, go out.

    If you have other ideas about reducing unpleasant and harmful noise, please write them in “Comments.”

    The damage from most temporary noise exposure is reversible. So driving down the highway singing loudly to your favorite music is not likely to hurt you. But when does too much noise lead to irreversible damage? If you are curious about the level of noise that can cause hearing damage, click on the CDC’s “noise meter(link is external).” This clever meter illustrates how intensity and duration of sound combine to produce risk of hearing loss. You’ll learn, among other things, that using a chain saw for more than 2 minutes without hearing protection is dangerous to your ears. I’m crossing that off my to-do list right now!

    As for me, I survived the din of dinner. After just one hour of exposure, I was at little risk for permanent hearing loss. My server may not be so lucky. Unremitting noise exposure, day after day, provokes changes that are deafening, literally and figuratively. In fact, at least one study found that one third of students who work in noisy environments like music clubs, bars, and restaurants were found to have permanent hearing loss. Hearing loss is also an occupational hazard for construction workers, landscapers, and anyone who uses noisy machinery. (To file a complaint about hazardous noise in the workplace, contact OSHA(link is external).) Astonishingly, 1/5 of Americans over the age of 12 suffer from some hearing loss.

    And as for the noisy restaurant—I’m going to follow my own advice in habit #2 and avoid it like the plague in the future.

    The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution

    9 January 2015

    Are 45 Million Americans Already Suffering the Effects of Wireless Radiation ?

    In the last edition of WEEP News I included this CBS story about tinnitus – More than 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/new-guidelines-for-treating-tinnitus-or-ringing-in-the-ears/

    A WEEP reader who suffers badly from tinnitus and EMF sensitivity, sent me this comment – “Martin, this article is a sad joke and not helpful at all”.

    The WEEP reader had missed the point of the article and it is very important that others realize the significance of this CBS news report.

    While there may be a few million people who naturally suffer from tinnitus (5 million may be a generous guess). There are very strong reasons to believe that the vast majority of those mentioned in the story (45 million plus) are actually suffering because they are hearing wireless radiation from a variety of different sources.

    The ringing noise in the ears seems to be a hearing effect, but it could also involve a neurological or a central nervous system problem that is being caused by wireless radiation. The important thing is that we can now point to a large percentage of the population, to show that wireless radiation is affecting their health.

    When you add the 45 million tinnitus sufferers on to the millions who are suffering auto immune diseases, various cancers, headaches, depression etc, the signs are becoming much clearer. Those signs indicate that wireless radiation is causing serious health effects to large numbers of the population.

    It is a sad development, but it is what reputable scientists and EMF safety activists have been forecasting for years!

  25. THIS IS WHY PROGRESS IS A MENTAL ILLUSION. THIS IS WHY PEOPLE ARE FRUSTRATED AND SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS AS TO WHY SOLUTIONS TO SURVIVAL OF THE HUMAN RACE REMAINS STAGNANT AND STATIC!!! OVER POPULATION IS THE CORE OF THE ISSUE AND OUR ISSUES ARE JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBURG. THIS IS WHY WHEN YOU CONFRONT THOSE IN CHARGE FOR COMMON SENSE RESOLUTIONS, YOU ARE REALLY PISSING IN THE WIND. YOU ARE SPEAKING TO ZOMBIES CARRYING OUT ORDERS OF THE ELITE. THIS IS WHO IS BEHIND THE CURTAIN. TIME TO USE THE POWER OF NUMBERS AND STAND UP TO THIS EVIL. THERE ARE NO SUPER HEROES THAT ARE GOING TO SWOOP IN AND FIX EVERYTHING. THAT IS ON OUR SHOULDERS. THERE IS NO PERIOD IN HISTORY MORE IMPORANT THAN NOW. THIS IS NOT A MOVIE; THIS IS OUR LIVES BEING SNUFFED OUT BY RUTHLESS, GREEDY, SOULESS CREATURES OF THE LOWEST ORDER, DEVOID OF ANY BENEVOLENCE TOWARD THE PROTECTION OF YOUR LIFE. THERE IS NOTHING SWEET OR NICE ABOUT THEIR AGENDA. IGNORING, BEING PATIENT, BEING NICE, BEGGING FOR HELP, SIGNING PETITIONS, PRAYING, VOTING, SAGING IS NOT GOING TO FIX THIS MESS. WE HAVE BEEN LULLED INTO A TRANCE WITH A MYRIAD OF DISTRACTIONS DESIGNED TO KEEP PEOPLE BUSY WITH MINDLESS, VAPID, SUPERFICIAL ACTIVITIES; NONE OF WHICH REVEALS THE TRUTH. OUR LIVES ARE MEANT TO BE SPENT EVOLVING, BUT YET OUR CULTURE IS DEEVOLVING. THE DUMBING DOWN, IS REAL. OUR CULTIVATED BEING IS BECOMING ISOLATED DUE TO SOCIAL MEDIA, WIRELESS TOYS, MANNERS, POLITENESS ARE REPLACED WITH BULLYING, RUDENESS, RAGE AND VIOLENCE, THANK YOU VIDEO GAMES, BLURRING THE IMPRESSIONABLE, SPONGELIKE MINDS OF THE YOUTH INTO A DESENSITIZED FALSE SENSE OF REALITY. THE I.Q, COLLECTIVELY IS GOING DOWN, NOT UP. THIS IS ALL A DESIGN TO SEPARATE, ISOLATE, KEEP PEOPLE MARGINALLY HEALTHY SO THAT CONTROL AND MANIPULATION OF PROPAGANDA AND MISINFORMATION IS ENOUGH FOR PASSIFICATION. SORRY TO BE ONE OF THE BEARERS OF STARTLING, SICK NEWS, BUT THIS IS WHAT WE ARE FACING AND THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION DO NOT WANT TO FACE THIS. THE HISTORY CHANNEL IS BROADCASTING
    THE TRUTH 24/7!!!! THIS IS NOT A FRINGE GROUP TRYING TO BE ALARMISTS. THEY ARE ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS; TRYING TO WAKE US UP!

  26. Dr. Pressley is explaining the electro-magnetic noise that radiates from the smart meter switch mode power supply, which is a mini transformer in the meters.

    Weekend Vigilante – February 4, 2015 Smart Meters with Dr Laura Pressley

    Dr. Laura Pressley the highly acclaimed Texas activist, who’s been featured many times on Alex Jones and has worked for over 22 years in the science and semiconductor industry as an engineer and manager at Motorola, Advanced Micro Devices and Freescale Semiconductor. She’s authored numerous peer reviewed research publications and US patents. She was a government accountability activist in Texas, she’s testified against the TSA, fought fluoridation of municipal tap water, and most recently implemented the first Smart Meter Opt Out Program in Texas.

  27. To eliminate the obvious; eliminate it! Turn off your main breaker to your home. You will eliminate any question that it is coming from inside your home. A major power outage will be helpful. The noise will remain during a power outage because of the pulsed RF frequencies t is imposed the power lines that is managing the smart grid communications….Sandaura

    Help, please. My whole house is humming and I don’t know what to do

    Apologies for the length of this but I will attempt to provide pertinent information about my situation.

    About six weeks ago, a humming noise seemed to engulf the entire house. We cannot find the source of the noise and it is so bad, it’s affecting our quality of life. We’re talking about breaking our lease if we can’t find a solution. The best way to describe this noise: it sounds like an 18 wheeler idling in the driveway. It’s a low frequency hum that never stops. I mean it’s present 24 hours a day, every day. In the past few days, it’s gotten louder; we have to wear earplugs inside. We’ve been in this house for four years and never experienced anything like this. The house was built in 2000, it’s a single-story, three-bedroom, two bath, two-car garage, 1500 sq ft. It’s your typical Las Vegas house.

    We’ve tried several solutions to no avail. The neighbor who shares our backyard wall has an extremely noisy pool pump and we thought that was the source of our unbearable noise. We asked him to not run the pump 24/7 and he says he had the pool guy out to fix it.

    But that didn’t take care of the noise. Then we thought it was the transformer in our front yard. Even one of our next door neighbor’s called the power company to complain about it. It had suddenly started humming abnormally loud so the power company replaced the transformer. That did not take care of the noise.

    We are at a loss. You can’t really hear the noise outside. Rather, you can’t hear anything that seems out of the ordinary. If you stand in the walkway between our house and the neighbor’s, you can somewhat hear the noise. I cannot tell if it’s coming from my neighbor’s house or elsewhere.

    We cut the power to our house, turned off the heating unit. The hum continued.

    My best guess is that the noise is a normal, low-frequency sound outside (a heat pump, generator, ??) but when it filters in through our attic vents, it’s amplified and the result is this constant, unbearable hum. The sound is throughout the house but concentrated in the master bedroom and bathroom, which is at the back of the house and directly under an attic vent. Or, somehow our house is making this noise but I can’t imagine what would do that. Something in the attic, humming even in the absence of electricity? Would the furnace do that? We have gas heat.

    We did have a new water heater installed in the garage but the noise was present a few days before that. Plus, the noise is constant. The water heater doesn’t emit a constant noise. But that would be another good way to describe the noise; it sounds like a very loud gas water heater when the water is being heated.

    I don’t know who to call for help. A home inspector, an acoustic engineer, a plumber, HVAC techician or someone else? Does this sound like anything explainable or fixable? I appreciate any guidance offered. I cannot describe just how terrible it is to be in our home these days. It’s dreadful.

  28. Energy plan jolts Emporia families

    Westar wants to expand a substation in Emporia to accommodate Hill’s, but neighbors are alarmed

    Posted: Sunday, November 23, 2008

    EXCERPTS
    Business first

    The five city commissioners listened Wednesday to Kauffman and Risch repeat conflicting arguments about EMFs, seismic vibrations, errant voltage and pure-tone sounds. Commissioners posed a handful of questions, but there was no reason for Westar to fret. Ordinance 08-40 was adopted unanimously.

    Westar wants to expand a substation in Emporia to accommodate Hill’s, but neighbors are alarmed

    “We have constitutional rights,” Evans said. “Westar is penetrating our walls. This is a home.”

    While random jolts — not life-threatening but far more intense than static — intermittently leave a mark, Evans and several neighbors say a more recent phenomenon has become a psychological irritation. Three years ago, they say, the substation mysteriously began emitting a louder around-the-clock hum.

    “It sounds like a car idling in the front yard,” said neighbor Lupe Villar, “but nobody ever drives away.”

    EMPORIA — Joanne Evans is leery of washing dishes in the kitchen of her eastside home.

    There is reason to cast a wary eye out the window while standing at the sink overlooking a Westar Energy substation. The kitchen appears to be a magnet for stray voltage suspected of escaping from the towering web of steel framing, wire and transformers that casts a shadow over Evans’ neighborhood.

    Members of her family say they have endured shocks since the home was bought in 2004 — a purchasing decision made by the Evanses after the Topeka utility gave a clean bill of health to a substation that went into operation during the Great Depression.

    “We have constitutional rights,” Evans said. “Westar is penetrating our walls. This is a home.”

    “It sounds like a car idling in the front yard,” said neighbor Lupe Villar, “but nobody ever drives away.”

    Westar engineers and executives say they have yet to substantiate these complaints and found no reason to delay a plan to make the substation Emporia’s largest. The location already serves more than a third of the city, but a fourth transformer is needed to accommodate demand from Hill’s Pet Nutrition. The Topeka company is building a 300,000-square-foot warehouse near the Evans property.
