A few years ago I noticed something similar to infrasonic phenomenon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infrasonic) at property where I live. You "feel" infrasonic frequency, not actually hear it (though infrasonic waves do act upon auditory sensing parts of the human body such as the ears and brain, the body mostly senses them as a type of pressure, or presence). A very basic description of an infrasonic phenomenon can be found in the US Patent - http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=3612211.PN.&OS=PN%2F3612211&RS=PN%2F3612211
As Spock would say, fascinating, at a very basic level.

I've worked in the sound recording field since age 12. I love the separation/combination of frequency and other spectral qualities in music; I hear it in dimensional layers relating to the qualities of the sound. I've used spectrum analyzers before and know a small amount about sound and radio wave physics; study wise I know these things as a layman.
It was probably mid 2009 sometime, very rarely, I'd notice an infrasonic phenomenon, generally when it was real quiet. We live in a world bombarded by all kinds of frequency generation that can do this at some levels. At certain levels, specific processes produce a more narrow spectrum of waves. I recognized these as radio phenomena, and I thought they were interesting. To start with it happened enough that I decided to study up and see what was causing it.
Now, I can't remember when, it might have been spring 2009 when I got some kind of letter from Georgia Power saying something about changin' the meter. Well I'd noticed that had already been done before I got the letter, maybe a few weeks earlier I'd noticed the meter had been changed because a new tag and been put on, brighter color, the old tag had been sun bleached. I looked then at the meter, new, update I figured. I thought nothing of it. I got the letter, went back and checked, looked like the same new meter that was there a week or so before, so I forgot about it. Didn't think anything of it.
The infrasonics started not long after. I went through everything, checking my gear, unplugging it, turning off any routers or wireless because wi-fi has been known to produce aberrations, making sure everything was grounded cause sometimes it was like a bad ground sound. Checking the fuse-box in the house, the line coming in to it for good connections and wiring, making sure something dangerous wasn't shortin' out, talkin' some with some electrician friend buddies. All kinds of theories, checked them all.
It was sporadic though, except I did notice the same phenomenon in all the buildings on the property. So I figured it was some kind of power line voltage problem. By the end of 2009, I started to notice the hum was stronger, and it had sound coloration which made me think it was not some kind of short. Again we checked all the building wiring. GA Power crews were out here working on some kind of line switches, so I told them about it, they checked transformers and lines, came up with nothing.
I began to experience a strange "gurgling sound" during hours at night while trying to fall asleep. It was faint yet invasive; it was weird because outside you could not "hear" it, again it was only inside the buildings. It too was infrasonic, I recognized I felt this phenomenon more than I heard it; in fact I didn't hear it or could record it at all using my audio recording equipment, regular microphones could not pick it up. I could though, as though it was all throughout my whole body.
During the summer of 2010, I lost two mixing boards and a recording machine to strong voltage surges. My dog Spike began whimpering and running through the house as if in pain, he also began to vomit on a regular basis and I too felt very sick. The infrasonic now took on the qualities of a diesel truck accelerating off in the distance, yet this phantom truck never passed on down the road. This would happen 4-5 times a week now. It caused severe insomnia.
Watch my Smart Meter Witnesses on Youtube; there are many people who'll describe what they are hearing/feeling, you don't have to take my word for it......http://www.youtube.com/user/twrocksu
If I awoke from sleep while this sound was being noticed I could not go back to sleep. Sometimes when I would awaken it was like my whole body was vibrating. I began to notice the buzzing effect even when I was awake and it seemed to get stronger with time; I began to have some eye focusing problems which produced vertigo. Around the end of summer the effects were so strong friends and family began to notice the "noise" inside my residence. By this time I also began to have feelings of pressure upon my eyes and ears; sometimes it was like heat upon my eyes and temples, my eyes would water badly and sometimes my whole body felt as if I had a fever.
By late 2010, the auditory effects now seemed to resemble machines running at a distance, like a compressor. It had a sick sound, not like musical subsonics, more like dark murmuring or a beast growling, like something deadly that would kill you. It was killing me, slowly, but effectively it seemed.
I have been around shortwave ham radio sets before and that experience is the only reference I could think of feeling wise that was similar, when you are very close to very powerful radio sets, or perhaps standing in a power substation, when there is very high voltage. It was so bad now and causing me such harm I called Georgia Power and told them there was some kind of high voltage or radio equipment problems out here. They checked the lines and transformers, nothing.
During December 2010 we had a very heavy snow here in North Georgia. While outside I could actually, for the first time, hear what I had heard in the buildings, it seemed to be amplified. Some neighbors up above me were also outside and I heard them say "what the hell is that sound?" It seemed to be very powerful. A while later I complained to Georgia Power again. A service tech came out, again, checked my meter's connection this time (but did not use RF gear, just a simple voltage meter) and this time stood in the house. At that time it was sometimes hard to notice the effect during the day because of the traffic. We both just shook our heads. Again I remarked it was like standing near high voltage or a pumped up radio transmitter.
The third visit by Georgia Power employees was by 2 engineers. Since I had said that it seemed to be some kind of high voltage hum they again checked their transformers and delivery lines. I told them, "it's like a huge radio transmitter pumping". They did not check their meters using equipment. I told them it was far worse in the dead of night, so I got a number of someone to call when it did it. I called within a few nights since by this time it did it all most all the time. They never came out during the night to check. I became very frustrated with Georgia Power; by this time I had also contacted Bellsouth and the local water/gas utility to check their services. Everyone came away with nothing, except perhaps thinking I was insane.
In May of 2011 the problem stopped for a few short months. Not sure what happened in or around May 2011, but by summer's end it was back again, with a vengeance.
By early 2012 I had severe short term memory problems, and at times my bones seem to be breaking, as well as the worse fatigue, headaches and anxiety type symptoms I've ever had in my life. The roaring infrasonics were now every night, all night long. For over a year I had been limited to 3-4 hours of restless sleep, now it was about half that. This produced severe depression, since I am too tired to do much of anything and am basically disabled. Sometimes it seemed I tasted metal in my mouth. I felt extreme agitation and was so nervous, like under constant, massive stress.
GA Power made one last visit and disconnected the entire corner. It was the middle of the day and I told the lineman I could not tell if it had stopped it because of the road and ambient noise, though it seemed to have. I told him, again, it was more like a radio signal than a bad ground or line problem. He reconnected the service at the pole and the phenomenon was again strong that night.
There were times I would stay away from the property for extended hours and it would seem to help some what, as did the few days when I could muster the strength to work outside in my gardens all day. By March 2012 my dog was completely lethargic, laying around all day, whining. I could not do much physical work and felt like my whole body was being drained of life. At times it was as if I were trying to enter a catatonic state.
In early May 2012 while describing the problem to a local resident, he asked me if I had a smart meter. I did not know really what a smart meter was/is; but I looked and I have a Sensus Icon, which seemingly has been proven to have faulty design and components (see the pdf link on my Recovery Act Fraud & Treason page - http://undergroundrecords.org/treason.html). It was then I knew there was some kind of effort to hide something terrible. Two years of complaining about RF and the company which has RF equipment on my property never checks it?
I then looked up information about Smart Meters, and became very angry. What was happening to me was murder.
So I called Georgia Power and told them to immediately remove these devices off my property. There are 3 in close vicinity to where I sleep, and the infrasonic problem is far worse near them than the one individual one at the other end of the property, though the sick sound exists there too. I was told by the Georgia Power Customer Service person she could not authorize the meter to be changed. She laughed and asked what my symptoms were. She laughed again when I told her and said she'd have someone contact me.
I had had enough, I was sick, this was some kind of cruel joke to the power company. So I filed a PSC complaint. I also told Sensus to get their radiation spewing death machines off my property.
Within 48 hours GA Power Meter Specialist Ben Hancock had called me to set up an RF Investigation. I was not pleasant to Mr. Hancock on the phone. Especially when I asked him if they'd had any complaints about these meters and he said "no, none at all" (he later said he thought I meant "hearing the RF" still, looking at the evidence online I find it impossible to believe with millions of people getting these things from the Southern Company, no one has complained to GA Power for "whatever" reasons concerning these proven defective devices???). Another poor attempt at humor by the power company. The investigation / demonstration was done June 7th, at which time I was told Sensus contacting Georgia Power had brought this problem to their attention, not the PSC complaint nor my call to GA Power Customer Service!!! Amazingly, two days before their demonstration, the problem dissipated a great deal; within 2 days afterwards, it was again, back with a vengeance. Coincidence? Highly doubtful.
So for the past 6 weeks I have studied Smart Meters and what this Smart Grid is supposed to do. Since I am witness and been affected by these nasty things long before I knew anything about any "smart meters" I will say openly and with conviction, it is a crime to deploy these units and this technology. It is nefarious fraud, and treason. It has the potential to destroy the United States Of America and her people.
The whole time this has been going on, research shows The Southern Company, Sensus, Federal and State Officials have known this problem exists and is destroying lives. I have been more than violated, I have been subject to something that will kill me, in more ways than one, and have been laughed at, and told no, these devices are safe and clean. That is an outright lie.
Smart Meters are dangerous, poison technology forced upon us by firms proven to do things that they should not be doing. It is time the things were removed and the firms responsible, pay for the damages. The "radio sickness" symptoms now being displayed everywhere these things are "deployed" are no fluke, the people getting sick all have the same conditions, and we're not "imagining" it. The companies and government involved in "deploying" these things all made lots of money, it is in their best interest to try and ignore the problems so they can make even more money, yet over time I believe the problems and evidence will overwhelm their denials.
I for one, believe the companies and the involved governments to be liable, criminals, and knowingly use these things to harm and destroy people's lives, and yes, they are doing these things in conjunction with one another. Such a terror has never been done to American people by their own people and government, knowingly.
This is pure evil.
Sign the petition to force utility companies to offer a free opt out to smart meters, make the government fully investigate the mess the things have made and make ALL PARTIES INVOLVED responsible for the damages! http://www.change.org/petitions/utility-companies-legislative-bodies-public-service-commissions-allow-customers-to-fully-opt-out-of-smart-meters
**update: As of early July, The Southern Company still has not replaced their meters, nor had someone contact me about doing it after repeated complaints following their demonstration a month earlier about how their meters work as advertised; it is the functions of the meters that are not advertised that are the problem.
**On July 9th, I was contacted by Georgia Power via telephone and told under no circumstances would they replace my meter, and again stated none of their meters had ever been shown to be defective or malfunctioned. They stated they could not replace my meter even if they wanted to, that no analog meters were being manufactured anywhere anymore. I am seeking legal recourse, expert witnesses, scientific testers, other victims, and the schematics and an actual Sensus Smart Meter, even if it means having a judge issue an order for mine to be confiscated and held as potential evidence in a crime.
**December 2012: Georgia Power finally (after many, many complaints) replaced my Sensus smart meter with ANOTHER supposedly updated Sensus power meter. The problems only got worse, plus the power surges seem to be more often. What a mess.
** January 2013: During the last day of December 2012 I had Georgia Power remove the meter from my house. Immediately this fixed the sonic problems I had been experiencing. Quiet as a tomb, no problems sleeping. After about a week they came back and put a smart meter on my residence, telling me if I did not want a smart meter they had to disconnect the service at the pole. Since I have recording equipment and need to work in my residence, electricity is required. As soon as the smart meter was reinstalled the problems came back.
