I get the near constant "ringing" (more like pulsing) in the ears and like one of the women in the article, it started after smart meters were
installed. Every evening around the same time, I was being driven batty by a loud, shrill and pulsing sound. I connected the two after getting home
one day and having the sound start up, louder than ever. I tracked it to the meter on my house, which was fairly new. Was quite "aha!" moment. I
called the utility company and the first person I talked to thought I was a total nutcase. Got off the phone, totally frustrated, and then tried
again. Second person actually listened to me and sent out a repairman to investigate who would test the equipment (and me). They apparently send out
one guy to assess these kind of customer "issues" and the first thing he did was have them shut it down and then, start pinging my meter. I had to
signal when the pinging started and stopped. After I correctly identified when it was receiving data, another guy was called to put a better shielded
smart meter on my home. While it does cut down on the sound from mine, it doesn't shut up the rest of the neighborhood's meters, lol.
make sure that I'm wearing headphones and listening to something noisy between 5-5:30 pm when all the meters are transmitting. It helps tune it out.
Honestly though, the only time I really have any sort of piece is when the net or power goes out. Then it's blessedly quiet.
The guy who tested me said that there aren't many who have problems with the whole wifi/smart meter thing. He said that there were only 8 others in
my area that had the same issue. Most complainers apparently fail the ping test but not all. I don't have any health reactions to it outside of
getting stressed when I hear it because it is really freaking high pitched. If there's other health effects, it's probably stress/noise induced.
In a wifi filled world, there's not a whole lot one can do but get used to it or move out to the middle of nowhere.
One kind of interesting and slightly weird thing was the guy asked me some questions after the new meter was installed. For one thing, he guessed my
blood type (O-) and said that every single one of those other 8 also were O-. The other thing he asked really took me off guard and that was asking
me about electricomagnetic issues. Watches frying, static discharge issues, etc etc. That was a big yep, too. Apparently, every single one of
those 8 also had those same issues. Pretty weird. Are you the same?
