To Somthing: I found that recording way back in 2008 or early 2009 when I first started investigating the hum...

What happened with your ringing sound? I guess you like the hum better.
Maybe you listen to very loud music a lot... That can ruin your ears and cause ringing.

I wish the whole world would hear this annoying sound, then, maybe then, it would be exposed by the media and its cause revealed. How long will this go on?!!! I am so tired of this...

I have so many questions that no one wants to answer...

Can someone try the following experiment? Try switching of the power in the house, the big switches. (Don't know the name of it.)

Bad wires in the house / adapter produce also low sounds.

trippy to say the least. Me and my wife just had an experiance like this. Sounds a lot like the hum in the video the OP posted. Very low hum. Me and the wife heard it in the house and stepped outside to see what it was. The only thing we could think was it was a low flying plane or something, but it obviously wasnt as we learned when we went outside. It definately wasnt a sound coming from a "moving"craft. The sound stayed stationary as if it were coming from a facility or floating spaceship or something. It was so odd to say the least. We have heard the sound numerous times since the beginning of this month. We life close to a army base so.....who knows.

Here's something else to consider.

A brilliant person by the name of Patrick Flannagan created a device called a "Neurophone" about 45 years ago, which used two electrodes anywhere on the body and produced sound "inside the head".

It was said to even create sensory stimulous in people who were def from birth or had some forms of nerve damage.

At the time, no one actually knew how it worked and I was pretty excited because it sounded to me like a very exciting step towards electronic telepathy.

They know a lot more about how it works now. You can learn more here:

Maybe something similar to this technology is causing t Ultrasonic polution which we perceive as the hum.

Like I said before... I hear this sound not just in my house... I hear it inside and outside (louder inside). I have also heard it at many other locations. It is not the building, IT'S THE LOCATION. My house happens to be in the path of some kind of energy wave. And since I have heard it as much as 3 to 4 miles north of my house, these waves must be big.

This morning at 11:24 EST the sound got noticeably louder for a few seconds (twice in a row). It makes me wonder if anything happened around that time that would coincide with the sound getting louder. Does anyone know if anything happened? Like an eartquake, volcano erupting, giant solar flare, unusual magnetic anomaly, or who knows what else?

Is this a symptom of something serious going on with our planet or maybe the sun? Is this being generated by a military branch somewhere or a private company that works with the military? By the way, I live in the West Palm Beach area where AUTEC has a building by the Palm Beach Airport. In the show UFO HUNTERS, I believe they were mentioned as being associated with UFOs. Since I alreday believe there's a possibility that this is being caused by the so called UFOs, maybe AUTEC has something to do with this? And then again, maybe not... Who knows? I know God knows and if this isn't a natural phenomena, you people have some big explaining to do!! Your time is coming.

Hum hearers, WHERE ARE YOU! I NEED YOUR INPUT! Keep track of when it becomes much louder for you, so we can compare notes.

Well...I just got done watching "cymatics, bringing matter to life with sound". If you dont know what cymatics is, i would check in to it. very interesting stuff, especially when you consider the possibilities with the idea.

here is the 1st of three parts of the video.

After watching the cymatics video, watch:

There are others out there on the subject but just wanted to point these out for starters. The reason I bring this up, is the theory that the government can use the technology as a form of mind control. Using sound waves to alter our thoughts.

anywho...just food for thought.

I'd really like to help you as you sound very frustrated. My first thought is that you are going to need to do a "process of elimination" in order to rule out certain things.

Have you had a hearing test? Perhaps you have an accute sense of hearing of certain tones that others cannot hear. Since your daughter can hear it and your husband can't. Perhaps your daughter also has an accute sense of hearing.

Is the hum like the audio link that another poster posted?
If it is, to me is sounds electrical.

Do you live near any power lines?
Radio or TV towers?

Power lines can flucuate their hum based on how much power is being pushed through them. I know this because my brother in law's house backs up to large power lines and we can hear the electrical "hum" and it does fluctuate. Sometimes it's quite loud and other times you can barely hear it.

I'm not sure where the "waterfall" was in Puerto Rico, but up in the mountains there is a spot with 5 or 6 Radio broadcasting towers.

Have you ruled out the possibility that you are hearing electrical currents?

To Julie... You bet I'm frustrated. When I first started hearing this hum I thought it would just be a temporary problem, now it's been over a year and here I am, still hearing it.

I don't think it is electrical. Why would you think that all of the sudden my daughter and I would start hearing this at the same time? Yes, I am hypersensitive as far as sound and smells. I used to get severe migraines since I was 9. Lately, I just get up with a headache but that could be due to other things, like dry air and not drinking enough water.

My gut feeling is that this is not normal and that it is serious.
I have a strong feeling that whatever is causing this sound might also be the cause of the electrical problems that small planes seem to be experiencing. Have you noticed all the plane crashes lately? Sometimes larger planes like the one that exploded or crashed over the Atlantic near Brazil. Did everyone forget that mystery? Still unsolved.
Even today there was a crash in Chicago. Was that due to electrical problems?

Why should I be the one doing all the investigating? Julie, you sound like you have a scientific brain. Hopefully you work for one of the agencies that should be looking into this. At least you are not telling me that I must have wax in my ears as a lady from NOAA wrote to me... Insulting to say the least.

I have been trying to write down the times when it becomes louder. It doesn't last louder for very long. Only a couple of seconds at the most.
At 2:22pm EST and at 3:50pm EST. I seem to feel the vibrations on my right ear only a lot of times. It seemed at one point that it was coming from the Northwest, but now as I'm typing this it feels like it's coming from the south. Like I said it's ever changing.

The rainforest place in Puerto Rico was right behind (south?) a mountain with a big round radar and many antennas near it. And the other place in Ceiba was up on a hill near where the Navy base used to be.

I can't believe that this has been going on all around the world for years and years and no one has been able to figure this out... It is just beyond belief. And ridiculous.
Thanks for trying to help Julie.

Another reply to Julies questions....

Who doesn't live near power lines?? You are kidding right?
And who doesn't live near antennas? They are everywhere one goes...
There's some kind of an antenna southeast of my house and the power lines are not the large ones and they are on the south side of my house and they are underground to my house from the street.

As far as a hearing check, I'm sure I had one done at some point in my life. They usually just want to make sure you hear what you should be able to hear. They said it was normal...

The sound recording is not much like what I hear. Mine feels like an undulating wave which gets much stronger (louder) at times.

And Julie, tell me please, why did I get nauseous when I first started hearing the sound and this lasted for 3 to 4 days? Does being able to hear electrical currents do this? I so doubt it.

Maybe someone would like to check if they can also "hear" or sense the hum. The one place where I heard it strongest was at CEIBA COUNTRY INN in Ceiba, Puerto Rico. I went there in April of 09 I think. It was very strong in the parking lot (outside). So, you can just park there and pretend to want to inquire about the rooms.
The other place was CUBUY ECOLODGE in the southern part of EL Yunque which is an adventure to get to.
Look them both up. I would highly recommend CUBUY to anyone who wants to experience the rainforest and the tranquility found there. Lots of coquis there also...

I was hoping others would give me some useful input, but I guess it's just you and me, Julie...
Someone must know what is going on because you would think that someone in the scientific community would at least come to my house to meet me in person and bring instruments to measure whatever that can be measured which would help solve this mysterious noise or energy. Maybe this is just impossible...

That was great info!!!!

Take a look into HAARP...the ELF waves are most likely the culprits....and that ship maybe was there as a counter measure to what else was going on...or perhaps was talking to a could have been a covert ship looking like a merchant ship but was intel....doing their job.....

yeah...the spooks are involved with this stuff...along with the navy intel

posted on Jan, 5 2010 @ 10:18 PM
Yeah I thought of HAARP too, but there are plenty of other explanations. The nausea is a huge clue. It validates that you are hearing something. The low level vibrations could be an answer. How long have you lived at that residence? The past year I've had a couple instances of a hum followed by immediate vertigo dissipating rather quickly. Another thing to consider too is being sensitive to electro-magnetic fields. In high school I could walk down the hall and tell you which rooms had TVs turned on from about 20 feet away. EMFs will give you the same nausea if it's strong enough or you're sensitive enough, and as in my case you can hear a strong hum from them. If you don't have any teenagers sneaking late night TV time on ancient vacuum tube type set, then look to florescent lights - the regular tube types and also security flood lights. They give off huge EMFs. Seeing as you hear it other places though you can probably rule all this out.

When did this start? Does it coincide with the digital TV switch? I'm very sensitive to things like this and could imagine the DTV signal giving me the same symptoms if I were in a straight line with the waves. Unlike regular analog signals these are more linear and I would assume a lot stronger. Hope you find some relief.

Hi all, back from the hols! I've been thinking about this & I've come up with a new theory! I want to speak to a few points 1st tho.
OP re: walls -
Yeah, sound reflects off them, but if the theory of ELF sound causing harmonic resonance is correct, it will be the walls vibrating that causes the hum. The sound will then bounce around (reverberate), which accounts for why its louder in some places in a room & perhaps even not present at all in others there.
If we have 2 flat walls facing each other, then sound will reverberate back & forth between them. If the distance between is close to a whole number multiple of the sound's wavelength, then it will cause a "standing wave", which is where it just bounces back & forth, creating areas "in phase" where that wavelength is amplified & "out of phase" where it is cancelled out. In theory, you could find an exact sinewave tone that would allow you to walk across the room hearing it then not every other step. In practice, sounds & rooms are usually much more complex.
Sounds have multiple harmonics, so only a portion of their timbre will behave that way between any 2 given walls, thus its the quality of the sound thats affected. That said, unless its quite loud, its hard to perceive such differences in low bass, so it may just seem to get louder or quieter.
Walls are rarely perfectly opposite & rooms rarely just oblong boxes: they have doors, windows, angled surfaces, furniture etc & are built of varying materials which reflect sound differently. The way all the various frequencies we can hear behave within a given room is called its "mode" & most modes will have at least 1 corner where bass is amplified.
For this reason, we can be certain that any hums that get louder or change quality in different parts of buildings, or change outdoors from indoors, must be coming from a physical source, rather than any bizarre electromagnetic phenomena.
Imo, its unlikely that the hums we have variously experienced are all from a single source tho. More on that below...

posted on Jan, 6 2010 @ 04:03 AM
Actually, I've got to go somewhere shortly so I'll just spit the idea out & get to the rest of the thread later.
What do we know of that readily resonates & also amplifies sound? Tubes right? Bang on 1 & you dont just hear the clang or thud, you get some kind of boing or twang from the open end. Think also of wind instruments, foghorns & old fashioned gramophones, where the flared shape amplifies the resonance in the thinner tube.
Ok, what do all modern cities & most neighbourhoods have in common?
Concrete Sewers!
Think about it: a whole series of sealed tube that goes everywhere, gets wider, has resonant chambers that lead into bigger tubes... & has a complete network of holes in it; in principal its like a giant complex saxophone/flute with multiple mouthpieces.
There are plenty of ways that energy can be transferred to make resonance: air & water moving through it, pumps that are part of it, traffic noise & physical vibration, wind blowing over open drains like panpipes, ELF sound from the ground etc. Most likely all of those, in varying amounts, all the time. However, many of the sections are of the same diameter & length thus will resonate at the same frequency. At any given time of day, the resonances of different sections could be in phase, thus amplifying them, or out of phase, cancelling them out, but any constant sound sources will interact with each other predictably, whereas constantly changing sources will modulate the interactions, like playing the instrument.
When you think of the size of some of the tube, its not hard to realise that the output sound would be at very low bass frequency. Except that at such low frequency, its quite difficult to hear pitch & timbre accurately, so we would most likely mainly only notice when it got louder or quieter.
If this hypothesis holds water
then its possible that the output sound is so low that it causes walls to vibrate, or perhaps it just enters houses through drains & reverberates, thus seeming louder than outside.

With regard to the power lines - I meant the large tranformer type. Not the typical street type.

I Google mapped the 2 locations and guess what I found? Right in Cubuy is exactly where SIX large broadcasting radio towers are located.

Right atop the hill at Cieba Country Inn is another large radio broadcasting tower.

I think you should search the area where you live and locate all the radio station broadcasting towers to see if this is a possible source of the hum you hear.

I'm no medical doctor, but I would think a constant hum in my middle ear would also make me nauseous.

"The primary function of the middle ear is to efficiently transfer acoustic energy from compression waves in air to fluid–membrane waves within the cochlea."

A couple of more questions:
Do you feel anxious?
Do you feel panic?
Do you have any dizzyness?
Do you feel depressed?
Have you been to a hearing specialist since the onset of the hum?

To PayMeh...
Please read my first post... This sound started for me on 9/23/08 around 11pm EST. Whatever set off the alarm at the water pumping station that is located about half a mile from my house, is probably the same thing that is affecting me still.

We have lived at this house for almost 22 years. I had never experienced anything like this before. And as far as nausea for more than a day, the only time that happened for me was after a flu vaccine on DEC 2000. I'll never do another vaccine again. I was sick for over a week and vertigo is the weirdest thing to experience.
Thank God the nausea that is associated with the hum went away after a few days.

This makes sense... except I can hear the hum in a house that has well water and a septic tank. No sewer pipes or any other pipes anywhere...

So, maybe we can rule that possibility out...
Thank you for your input.

Wow, Julie, you should get paid for this, if you are not already...

When I have time I will try to look up the towers around me. But if they have been around me for years, why would I be affected by them all of a sudden?

Answers to questions:
Do you feel anxious? Only when I watch the History Channel about how the world is going to end and all of that.

Do you feel panic? I felt this when the sound first started. I was scared for my family and my pets. I didn't know what this could be doing to us physically, mentally...Even to this day, my remaining dog, will rather sleep outside than be inside the house and he was never like that before the hum started.

Do you have any dizzyness? Not usually, I might get a little dizzy from strong smells (perfume, cigarettes) or right before a bad headache, which I get from strong smells.

Do you feel depressed? Depression is part of who I am... Too bad everyone can't be naturally happy all the time. I think most of my life I've been slightly depressed. BUT, I had a weird case of severe depression right around the time of when the hum started. I remember we had a lot of rain from some tropical storm around that time. My husband got me to drink rain water, and I did stupidly. A few days later I was so depressed I went to the doctor for help which I hadn't had to do since my mother died due to Alzheimer's. There was no reason for this depression. No major sad event, nothing. Eventually the depression lifted without the use of those horrible antidepressants. They have too many side effects for me to be able to take them.

Have you been to a hearing specialist since the onset of the hum? No, but my husband thinks I have a "hearing problem". There was an article in the paper about baby boomers becoming deaf and now he thinks I have a form of tinnutus. I know that is not the problem. I do have tinnutus on occasion. It's the opposite frequency of the hum.

Thanks Julie

You may want to clay pack that area to help clear out any lingering effects of that!

I don't know what else may do that, but if you amazon search Dr. Sherry Rogers, she may have something in her tired or toxic book.

I know you didn't say it still affected you, I just figured I'd tell you, in case you had wanted to do something and didn't know how to go about it.

Anyways, she's a medical doctor with a specialty in toxins and effective ways of getting the crud out of your system.

Thank you for the tip, thankfully I am not experiencing anything else (that I know of) from that vaccine. The Vertigo lasted for about a week as I remember.
