In an article titled, “Smart Meter Radiation Protection Tips” by Lloyd, it says, “A smart meter produces microwave non-ionizing radiation that penetrates the walls of your home and into your home 24/7, 365 days.” This is not true for narrowband PLC (Power Line Carrier or Communication) smart meters. They use lower frequencies which are harmful. For some reason, narrowband PLC meters aren’t mentioned much but they should be. I did a search on this website and found no results.
I am in particular interested in obtaining information about Aclara narrowband PLC modules and how they communicate with the PUD’s data center. I’ve called Aclara twice and so far they have refused to tell me or call back. I’ve been told that I need to contact my PUD for that information. Some people that will respond say that their smart meters are safe. I’ve contacted my PUD by calling and by email and now it’s to the point that they refuse to respond, including the President of the Commissioners.
How can I obtain technical information about narrowband PLC smart meter systems?

Hello WCarp7, and welcome to the forum. I can’t help with detailed technical information, but you might find this posting of interest https://www.electricsense.com/f…..r-than-rf/
Over a year later I’ve seen nothing to change what I wrote then. As you may be aware there are several options for filtering out noise on the electrical power circuits, from plug-in Stetzer-style filters to in-line ‘industrial’ noise reduction filters, depending on how bad the problem is and you budget.
Maybe someone else can supply more technical information?
