Now that my husband and I have been "cell-free" for a couple of weeks, it's amazing how aware of Wi-Fi we are when we're out. We had to leave an office supply store the other day, as we were both having trouble thinking from the extremely strong RF in the store.
The seller was extremely helpful when I had a few questions. I would give this product 10 stars if I could.
The best RF meter on the market for quick measurements on the go or before bed. Portable, not too flimsy and has well placed exposure levels. Goes well with the same-sized PF5 (Electric + Magnetic Field Detector) also made by EMFields UK.
Save money on the bulky Acoustimeter (the big brother of the Acousticom 2) and get this with a Cornet ED178S or ED88t, unless you need the headphone & volume function. The green led on the Acousticom 2 goes one level lower than the Acoustimeter (0.01v/m vs 0.02v/m) which is crucial if you're trying to get as close to absolute zero electrosmog as possible for restorative sleep. However the sound pick-up is the same and you can hear what you cannot see even through a meter. The readout of the Cornet EX85S or Gigahertz Solutions models might be even more sensitive than the Acousticom 2 given the external antenna. The histogram (past 30sec activity graphing) of the $140 priced Cornet ED178S and the (800mhz - 2.7ghz) spectrum analyzer feature of the pricier Cornet ED88t makes it easier to catch smart meter spikes than the Acoustimeter and the Acousticom 2. They also have sound features but it's not quite as good as the Acousticom 2. Use the wav files on the EMFields-solutions website (under Detectors) and learn what the specific electrosmog you're wary of sounds like. When two leds are lit up on the Acousticom 2, it means a certain level between the two lights has been reached.
The effect was noticeable. Before, I always got a vague mental fog / irritation / funk when in the car. I didn't know why. But after turning off Bluetooth, I don't get that feeling anymore.
So if you have Bluetooth in your car and don't use / need it, make sure you completely deactivate it or it will be bathing you and any passengers in strong RF the whole time you're in your car!
I'm new to this, but from what I could find out the Acoustimeter is one of the most sensitive RF meters, and the Acousticom has the same circuitry and sensor just in a smaller package (about the size of a deck of cards) and showing only instantaneous V/m which should be fine for general use and finding problems. It also detects up to 8GHz which is important for detecting some newer sources. So that's why I chose it. It doesn't tell you a bunch of extra stuff, just what it is seeing that instant, which should be enough for finding problems.
The most 'eye-opening' thing is when you turn on the sound... Even when the RF isn't enough to trigger the first LED (.01 V/m), you hear all sorts of microwave RF. You realize you are being showered in this constantly. Then when you get near a stronger source, the sound level turns up menacingly and the LEDs go into the yellow and red zone. Definitely makes the invisible visible in an striking way.
Seller Naljor Creations had a low price and really fast handling and (standard) shipping. I ordered, they shipped it out the same day, and it got here 2 days later. Just wanted to give them a recommendation.
