Program set to warn against smart meters, 5G technology

PORT TOWNSEND — Smart Meters & 5G, a program sponsored by opponents of both technologies, is planned for 6 p.m. Friday.

The two-hour free program will be at the Port Townsend Community Center, 620 Tyler St.

It is co-sponsored by Clallam Against Smart Meters, Jefferson County Progressives, Olympic Peninsula Progressives, Olympic Peninsula Regenerative Agriculture Alliance and Smart Meter Objectors Group.

Videos will include excerpts from “Wireless Wake-Up Call,” “Smart Meter Effects on Blood Cells” and “5G: FCC & Senate Hearing Statements.”

Speakers will include:

• Jason Parkinson of Clallam Against Smart Meters, “Overview of EMF Research.”

• Ana Wolpin of Smart Meters Objectors Group (SMOG), “Meters in Jefferson County.”

• Tony Corrado, a mechanical engineer described as having 40 years experience with defense related weapons, sensors, and technology development, speaking on “Why is 5G Different?”

A panel discussion and question-and-answer period will include these speakers along with Sebastian Eggert of from Spectum Analytics, Luke Mason of the Olympic Peninsula Regenerative Agriculture Alliance, and Chiropractor Frank Springob as seen in “Take Back Your Power.”

Smart meters are digital meters that measure and record electricity usage data hourly and allow for remote two-way communications between utilities and the meters.

They emit radio waves.

5G technology uses a higher-frequency band of the wireless spectrum called millimeter wave that allows data to be transferred more rapidly than the lower-frequency band dedicated to 4G.

Its millimeter wave signals don’t travel as far so the new 5G networks will require many more antennas spaced closer together than previous wireless generations.
