A New Addition to our site: Smart Meter News Updates and a separate area devoted to “Smart Grid Syndrome” testimony submissions.  We have coined the phrase “Smart Grid Syndrome”, so that the medical profession will  recognize we share the same symptoms and health impact as of the wind turbine syndrome.  A different source, but same impact.  The source of the constant hum and motor or drum like drone is the Global smart grid network.

Send us your smart meter news stories and we will be happy to post them.  We have added a comment box for the smart meter syndrome testimony submissions as well at:

Do not leave in comment box below. Please follow this link then click on testimonials and write in comment box. This is where you will find the testimonials since February 2014. Older Testimonies prior to February 2014 were posted randomly in the comment section of the main page of http://www.sandaura.wordpress.com

NEW TESTIMONIAL SITE AT: http://smartmeternewsupdates.wordpress.com/about/

To give those who do not hear or understand what the “Illegal Pure Tones” are (the NOISE POLLUTION being heard 24/7, 365 days a year), please listen to the EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM SIGNAL and imagine yourself as a victim who hears a similar tone(s) and the daily impact this would have on you.  Pure Tone” means any sound which can be distinctly heard as a single pitch or a set of single pitches.  

I HAVE HEARD THIS NOISE POLLUTION OVER 8 YEARS AND COUNTING AND CURRENTLY SERVING A LIFE SENTENCE, IMPRISONED BY THIS ASSAULT ON MY BEING OR UNTIL THE APATHY OF THE PUBLIC TURNS INTO EMPATHY AND STAND UP INSTEAD OF STANDING BY.  THIS IS EFFECTING EVERYONE; EVEN IF YOU CAN’T HEAR IT.

Condensed Version of EPA Levels Document

PURPOSE

This publication is intended to complement the EPA’s “Levels Document,”* the 1974 report examining levels of environmental noise necessary to protect public health and welfare. It interprets the contents of the Levels Document in less technical terms for people who wish to better understand the concepts presented there, and how the protective levels were identified. In that sense, this publication may serve as an introduction, or a supplement, to the Levels Document.

*”Information on Levels of Environmental Noise Requisite to Protect Public Health and Welfare with an Adequate Margin of Safety,” EPA/ONAC 550/9-74-004, March, 1974.

INTRODUCTION

Hearing Damage from Environmental NoiseThere is no question that exposure to certain levels of noise can damage hearing. However, determining exposure levels that protect hearing with an adequate margin of safety is a complicated matter.

This is because hearing is a complex ability that cannot be summarized by a single number in the way an individual’s height or weight can be described. In fact, sizable differences exist between individuals’ hearing abilities. Hearing acuity tends to change progressively with age. Also, environmental noise exposure may vary considerably from moment to moment, so that specification of protective levels should include dynamic considerations. Further, relationships between hearing damage and noise exposure must be inferred, since available scientific information was gathered from groups of people who differed not only in noise exposure, but also in other important ways. Finally, individual and group noise exposures (especially over a working lifetime) are rarely known with precision.

In reaching conclusions about hearing loss, then, one must rely to a degree on assumptions, hypotheses, and extrapolations from existing data. Since complete agreement within the scientific community on these matters is lacking, an attempt was made in the Levels Document to consider alternative assumptions and hypotheses to ensure that the methods used to derive protective levels were based on the most defensible practice. As new data become available these levels may change slightly.

IMPORTANT PETITION TO: “HALT EMR NOISE POLLUTION HARMING HUMANS AND WILDLIFE” GOVERNMENTS CONTINUE TO IGNORE US UNTIL THERE IS SOLIDARITY! https://www.change.org/petitions/president-of-the-united-states-halt-the-emr-noise-pollution-harming-humans-and-wildlife

As per http://www.antennasearch.com, there are no cell tower base stations within a 4 mile radius of our home.  There are no new applications for towers to date.  My point being, don’t be confused by how many or how close you are living to cell base stations.  The noise that is permeating the air nationwide is caused by the power lines and the smart grid communication technology. This is why it sounds the same everywhere.  We are all exposed to the power grid! http://www.avlelec.com/epa_noise.html

  1. It has taken me many years of hard work to afford to buy a home. I have been so happy ,content and comfortable in my new home. This past February. Eversource replaced PSNH and put a new meter on my house and added new wiring to the poles up and down our street and attached to our homes. I did not request or approve this.I did not ask for additional broad band,none of it.
    I am renting another house at the moment because I am overwhelmedThe humming fog horn constant sound and vibration is making me sick.
    MY DREAM HOME I cannot live in anymore.I was so happy and it was so peaceful.
    I ask you how can they destroy my peaceful home and existence.
    1. I cannot sleep due to the constant humming which revs up at night and goes all night long…
    2. I have never had headaches now I do when at the house.
    3. I have had low level nausea
    4. My ears,my body feels this vibration going through it, my body is tensing and I have stomach cramping.

    This all began the day they put this 2 way meter on my house.
    This is my home sweet home this company has destroyed. This is unacceptable and for our children’s future this has to stop. I do not want this on my house I do not want their bands of low frequency noise and radiation pulsing through my house and ruining my peaceful life.

    PLEASE KNOW I own a building and a business and it is much worse here.
    I honestly cannot imagine life with this dark and dirty electricity.

    I simply want them to be stopped and I want the electricity back I had a year ago
    Eversource has put untested dirty electricity and bands of radiation in our town.WHO ALLOWED THIS?

    The Cancer clusters in our town will be on the rise and complaints will increase at an incredible rate and who will pay for all the medical issues caused by this company who is unable to assure us it is not hurting us.

    OFFICE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCES TECHNOLOGICAL
    ADVISORY COUNCIL (TAC) NOISE FLOOR TECHNICAL INQUIRY
    ET Docket No. 16-191
    Comment Deadline: August 11, 2016
    The FCC’s Technological Advisory Council (TAC), an advisory group to the FCC operating under the
    Federal Advisory Committee Act, is investigating changes and trends to the radio spectrum noise floor to
    determine if there is an increasing noise problem, and if so, the scope and quantitative evidence of such
    problem(s), and how a noise study should be performed. In this public notice, the Office of Engineering
    and Technology (OET) announces the TAC’s public inquiry, seeking comments and answers to questions
    below for the TAC about radio spectrum noise.1
    TAC Noise Floor Technical Inquiry
    The TAC is requesting input to help answer questions about the study of changes to the spectrum noise
    floor over the past 20 years. Noise in this context denotes unwanted radio frequency (RF) energy from
    man-made sources. Like many spectrum users, TAC members expect that the noise floor in the radio
    spectrum is rising as the number of devices in use that emit radio energy grows. However, in search for
    concrete evidence of increased noise floors, we have found limited available quantitative data to support
    this presumption. We are looking to find ways to add to the available data in order to answer important
    questions for the FCC regarding this topic.
    Radio spectrum noise is generated by many different types of devices. Devices that are not designed to
    generate or emit RF energy but do so as a result of their operation are called Incidental Radiators. Most
    electric motors, light dimmers, switching power supplies, utility transformers and power lines are
    included in this category. There is little regulation governing the noise generated by these devices. Noise
    from such sources is expected to be minimized with “Good Engineering Practices.”
    Devices that are designed to generate RF energy for internal use, or send RF signals by conduction to
    associated equipment via connected wiring, but are not intended to emit RF energy, are called
    Unintentional Radiators. Computers and many portable electronic devices in use today, as well as many
    new high efficiency lights, are included in this category. Current regulations limit the levels of emitted RF
    energy from these devices.
    Unlicensed Intentional Radiators, Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) Radiators, and Licensed
    Radiators are devices that are designed to generate and emit RF energy by radiation or induction. Cellular

    phones and base stations, unlicensed wireless routers, Bluetooth devices, broadcast TV and radio stations,
    and radars of many types, are all examples of licensed / unlicensed intentional radiators, and microwave
    ovens, arc welders, and fluorescent lighting are examples of ISM equipment. Such emitters contribute to
    the noise floor with emissions outside of their assigned frequencies. These are sometimes generated as
    spurious emissions, including, but not limited to, harmonics of desired frequencies and intermodulation
    products. Regulations that permit the operation of these devices also specify the limits of emissions
    outside of licensed or allowed (in the case of unlicensed devices) frequencies of operation.
    We are looking for responses to the following questions to help us identify aspects of a study to determine
    trends in the radio spectrum noise floor.
    1. Is there a noise problem?
    a. If so, what are the expected major sources of noise that are of concern?
    b. What services are being most impacted by a rising spectrum noise floor?
    c. If incidental radiators are a concern, what sorts of government, industry, and civil society
    efforts might be appropriate to ameliorate the noise they produce?
    2. Where does the problem exist?
    a. Spectrally
    i. What frequency bands are of the most interest?
    b. Spatially
    i. Indoors vs outdoors?
    ii. Cities vs rural settings?
    iii. How close in proximity to incidental radiators or other noise sources?
    iv. How can natural propagation effects be accounted for in a noise study?
    c. Temporally
    i. Night versus day?
    ii. Seasonally?
    3. Is there quantitative evidence of the overall increase in the total integrated noise floor across
    various segments of the radio frequency spectrum?
    a. At what levels does the noise floor cause harmful interference to particular radio
    services?
    b. What RF environment data from the past 20 years is available, showing the contribution
    of the major sources of noise?
    c. Please provide references to scholarly articles or other sources of spectrum noise
    measurements.
    4. How should a noise study be performed?
    a. What should be the focus of the noise study?
    b. How should it be funded?
    c. What methods should be used?
    d. How should noise be measured?
    i. What is the optimal instrumentation that should be used?
    ii. What measurement parameters should be used for that instrumentation?
    iii. At what spatial and temporal scales should noise be measured?
    iv. Should the monitoring instrumentation be capable of determining the directions
    of the noise sources? If so, how would those data be used?
    v. Is there an optimal height above ground for measurements?
    e. What measurement accuracy is needed?
    3
    i. What are the statistical requirements for sufficient data? Would these
    requirements vary based on spectral, spatial and temporal factors?
    ii. Can measurements from uncalibrated, or minimally calibrated, devices be
    combined?
    iii. Is it possible to “crowd source” a noise study?
    f. Would receiver noise measurements commonly logged by certain users (e.g. radio
    astronomers, cellular, and broadcast auxiliary licensees) be available and useful for noise
    floor studies?
    g. How much data must be collected to reach a conclusion?
    h. How can noise be distinguished from signals?
    i. Can noise be characterized and its source identified?
    ii. Is there a threshold level, below which measurements should be ignored?
