Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

We arrive home and I’m standing in my driveway pointing the meter at the cell phone towers and the meter is showing safe levels.  Inside the house I take some more readings and it is still showing safe. I feel like an idiot.

I pull out the three page instruction booklet that came with the device. It explains how to take readings with the meter and how to measure the safe distance from EMF exposure.

The second page talks about the different places in your house that could be a source of EMF. The first place it mentions is the bedroom and how this is the most important area of the house because of the time spent sleeping in one place. It says to check the windows to see if any EMFs are coming in.

It also says to avoid sleeping with electric blankets and alarm clock radios.  We don’t have an electric blanket but I do have a clock radio beside my bed. Doesn’t everyone? It also talks about appliances in the kitchen, televisons and computer screens. Another thing it mentions is taking background readings around the house as there could be ground fault with the electrical wiring. This is interesting since our house is eighty years old.

I start taking readings in the bedroom and with a radio tower near by, I take a reading by the window and it displays in the safe range. Then I take a reading close to the radio and it starts screaming. Beside the radio is an old style lamp with a steel base and next to that is a FM wireless intercom device and the meter is showing above the acceptable limit of 2 mG for all three. The interesting thing about the intercom unit is the reading was still above the acceptable limit even when the unit was powered off.

Did I create my own problem? I’ve had the same clock radio for years but the lamp and intercom system are new since moving into the house. Then I realize the other intercom base unit is next to my computer where I also spend most of my time. I unplug each of the intercom units and I move the lamp and the radio to the tall dresser.

The rest of the house seems okay. Let’s see if it makes a difference…

Entry for February 18, 2006

With all of this new evidence, I’m one step closer to selling our house. I need to know if the electromagnetic waves are affecting me directly. My wife doesn’t display any symptoms and our baby was born without any defects. Why am I the only one with the symptoms?

Back to google…there must be a test that can be done by a doctor or maybe some kind of home testing kit. I didn’t quite know what I was looking for until…

FOUND IT! I came across a web site that sell products directly related to EMF testing and discovered a meter that will display the actual strength of the electromagnetic waves. This is what I need. I don’t want to make the purchase over the internet so I do some more googling to find out if there is somewhere local and it doesn’t let me down. I type “EMF meter toronto” and the first result is for a hobby store called EfstonScience. They sell them for $29.00. What a great investment. I tell my wife about the meter and within hours we are driving across the 401 to pick one up.

I tell the salesperson that I’m looking for an EMF meter. He shows me three models and I like that one that squeels if it’s in the danger zone. I’m sold.

We install the battery and drive back home across the 401. We have the meter ready to take readings and as we pass the cell phone towers the meter is showing safe levels. So I decide to drive pass the old house and take some readings on the street and then closer to the cell phone tower in the area. All the readings show safe. Was I using it correctly?

We get back onto the 401 and drive underneath the power lines coming from Pickering Nuclear. The meter starts screaming!! DANGER! DANGER! This is what I’ve been waiting for. We notice that the meter gives us the high danger reading whenever we pass underneath the power lines and only get a small blip when we pass the cell towers.

The danger of course it not passing underneath the hydro lines, it’s the effects of long term exposure.

How interesting. I wonder what it will read when we get home? We don’t live near any power lines…
