High Frequency Meters & Filters – My Top Picks!

When it comes to reducing RF Radiation in your home down to safe levels, the people who do the worst job of it are the ones who don’t have access to the High Frequency Meters that you need to properly diagnose your home. For example, even if you have a smart meter on your home, you may not need a filter in every circuit of your home. It depends on how powerful your smart meter is. And their were items in my home I though would emit a lot of RF Radiation, that hardly emitted any, and visa versa. Meters make all the difference.

That being said the two types of meters you need are one that measures airborne RF Radiation, and one that measures “Dirty Electricity”. Both types are very dangerous types of RF Radiation. Below are in my opinion both the easiest to use and the best priced meters given the features you need. And both are accurate. The links below take you to the best places to purchase each meter.

1. HF 35C High Frequency Analyzer

HF-35C High Frequency Analyzer! The HF 35C High Frequency Analyzer is a directional meter. This is super important, especially for beginners, because it makes it much easier to identify what in a room is emitting the RF Radiation that the meter is picking up. You know which ever direction you are pointing it, that is the direction the RF Radiation is coming from. It is really very handy that way. And very simple to use!

If you go to my article “How To Test For RF Radiation” you can see videos where I am actually going room by room through a home and testing items for RF Radiation. It shows you exactly how to use this.

2. TriField EMF Meter Model TF2

TriField EMF Meter Model TF2 This meter is a new addition I just got. And I have to say I absolutely love it. It tests all three types of electromagnetic radiation that is harmful to us in our homes, RF Radiation, Electric Fields and Magnetic Fields. It is about half of the price of the HF 35C High Frequency Analyzer. The reason you need to be able to read electric and magnetic fields is because this is emitted by electronic devices that we keep near our bodies, such as laptops and tablets.

The TriField EMF Meter Model TF2 does not measure dirty electricity actually on the power lines in your home. So you will still need the Graham-Stetzer Microsurge Meter below to be able to go circuit by curcuit through your home and see where you have dirty electricity and correct the problem.

There is one thing that I like about the HF 35C High Frequency Analyzer better than the TriField. And several things I like about the TriField better than the HF 35C. If you watch the below video I do a quick demonstration of the TriField and also compare it to the HF 35C. It is a short video and I think you will benefit by watching it if you are trying to choose a meter.

3. Graham-Stetzer Microsurge Meter

Dangerous Dirty Electricity You could not have an easier to use meter than the Graham-Stetzer Microsurge Meter. Literally to test a circuit all you do is plug the cord on the meter into any electrical outlet on that circuit. If the reading is 50 or higher, you know that you have unsafe levels of Dirty Electricity and your circuit needs a Graham-Stetzer filter plunged into the outlet (as seen under the cord in the image to the left). A 49 reading or lower means you are safe.

In that image to the left you can see the meter is reading 27 with a filter plugged into the electrical outlet. Before I plugged in the filter to take that picture that circuit read 85 which was above the 50 safety limit. After plugging in the filter it lowered it well down below 50 into the safe level area. In almost all situations that is all it takes.

How To Test For Dirty Electricity

This brief video gives you a brief demonstration on how to test a circuit for Dirty Electricity and how to put a filter in it to solve the problem.
