We did a test of an analog meter in Housatonic MA Nov. 2017. It obviously had an AMR chip in it as it was emitting RF frequency that we measured with our Acoustimeter. Just because it looks like an analog, don’t assume it is one. National Grid told us that some AMR’s actually look like analogs.

It appears that utility companies have been hiding wireless transmitters  in so-called ‘analog’ meters, without informing the public.  If you are paying a surcharge for a meter reader to come and a safe analog with a spinning disc or dials, but it is still pulsing microwave radiation.  To make sure your analog is not a ‘trojan horse’ is to use an RF meter and test it yourself.

A Trojan horse ‘analog’ meter (L&G MX model) has been linked with a case of throat cancer in California that is currently the subject of litigation.
