There should be no anonymous accusers in our society; we have the right to face our accuser.

Try to keep us down! This is the second time I had to switch, and probably won't be the last. I wonder what it was that got us bumped off reddit this time?

This brings a lot of things into perspective and makes a lot more sense than what I've been reading elsewhere.
I go by the idea that if what I read (or watch) doesn't make sense, it's because things are left out or details made up, maybe even completely made up. A good example was: "They attacked the embassy because they were angry about a youtube video." Not even the most gullible person could believe that crap.

It was the old guy's banner that the punk took, and for the second time, no less. The old guy was just trying to stop him from walking away and steeling it.
You should read the story, not just watch the vid; there are things that happened before the video was recorded.

What would rf do damage to? It's non-ionizing radiation. Does your garage door opener cause fires when you open it? Does your cell phone burst things into flames when you call someone? Does your wireless router (which is transmitting 24/7 at a higher wattage) catch things on fire? Class one devices have a low wattage. Wattage is what gets you distance when transmitting. The furthest out I ever went to find a meter was 1/2 mile. A hand-held walkie talkie has that range, it is less than 5 watts.
Here's another tid bit of data: not all electric companies use the same meters. The company in my area used Landis & Gyr. I don't know just how many other companies design and build smart meters that are in use in this country, but I'm sure it's more than just L&G. They all have to be built to NFPA standards. Most of the commercial meters that I exchanged were already smart meters, and have been for a decade or so. Have the problems been around that long? We changed them out so L&G could create their own RF network, and not rely upon the cell service that's available. More streamlining. I guess people would rather have analog meters and pay even more, because meter readers have not been employed for the last 5 years or even longer in some places. Metering was being done from the closest transformer. When the smart meters were installed, some people saw an increase in their bill, and some saw a decrease. That was the difference between two or more houses sharing a transformer, finally getting an accurate reading. Meter readers aren't coming back, we have to move on.
I don't work for the electric company, I was working for a subcontractor that got the winning bid for the contract. The job lasted almost a year and had almost 50 of our local electricians busy for most of that time. We were actual electricians, not technicians with a day or two of training and sent out to change meters. I've been working in the electrical field for over 20 years, commercial and industrial.
One of the biggest misconceptions I see is that, although it is a utility, the electric company is different than Landis & Gyr, which is different than the contractor hired out to exchange the meters. It's not an all-encompassing government doing this. You signed a contract when you got an electrical service. In that contract came a meter. The meter is not yours- you do not own the meter, the electric company does. In signing for the electric, the meter comes with it. With the amount of bungling I saw between the three entities, it would be hard to believe there is a coordinated effort to sabotage everyone's house and business. Multiply that across the country.
Downvote me some more if you will, but I only can tell you what I saw and what I experienced. Given my insight by my job that I've been doing for a long time, I can honestly say you guys are chasing windmills with the smart meter hate. There are so many other things out there actually killing us slowly that need our attention.

It's okay, I see a lot of hate directed towards the smart meters on this forum. A lot of it has to do with just not knowing anything about them, how they are made, how they work, and admittedly the manufacturers and electric companies didn't help. I asked my supervisors for a data sheet about the meters so we (those of us in the field) could give correct and accurate answers to the customer when confronted (and I do mean confronted- I've been accosted, yelled at, and threatened by homeowners at times) so they would understand what the electric company was doing. They basically dismissed me, thinking that there was just a small minority of customers, and it's not like it was their choice to not have them installed. There was a lot of misunderstanding to go around. I met with, in the course of my job, the engineers trying to solve small inconsistencies in some of the installations (all of them commercial, not residential), and learned far more about the insides of the meters themselves. The engineers and manufacturer's ultimate concern is safety when it comes to the meters. They must be built to NFPA code, or they wouldn't be approved.
