In California, for PG&E, I believe the Gas Meter is 450-470 MHz and the 
electric is 902-928 MHz.

I called and asked many questions.  I asked if there had been any interference 
problems with hams.  The gentleman on the phone said yes and it usually was a 
grounding problem and was always the Hams fault.  I didn't bother to correct 
him and I didn't tell him to not install the meters, but I think I am the only 
house in the neighborhood without a Smart Meter.
