    AQUA Pennsylvania has announced that it will be installing RF water meters
    for residential customers. In a letter dated 7/29/2004 sent out to
    customers, the company writes, "We will be able to take readings simply by
    driving by your property." Can these RF water meters interfere with WAP
    units such as the Linksys WAP11?
    Thanks

  2. Any idea who is the vendor of their wireless water meter? I doubt
    that they're using 2.4GHz. Most of the ones I've seen run on
    902-928Mhz FHSS. They also don't xmit unless interrogated. I don't
    think there will be any interference to 2.4GHz.

    Thanks for the info. I'll try to find out who makes their RF meters.

    The customer service rep didn't know anything specific about the equipment,
    but told me that they had been instructed to assure customers that the RF
    meter would not interfere with any existing RF devices.
