Thank you, Dick Kohlhaas.
For those who don't like to read reports, or feel overwhelmed by
technical discussion, I copy below the (to me) "zinger" figure from the
report Dick references.

In this figure, the taller the column the more you should be concerned
about it.  Clearly if you use a cell phone, it is inappropriate for you
to be agitated about smart meters.

In the figure the smart meter are depicted as "always on", i.e. 100%
on-time.  As the report discusses the on-time will be only  1 to 4%,
reducing the exposure accordingly.
