I don't have as much free time as I would like. I just like ATS and I drop by when I can steal a second or two.

As far as my threads go, I am a fledgling compared to most of the contributors at ATS. I have less than 50 threads. I have about 250 post in response to the threads of my fellow members at ATS, however, that is the reason people post a thread; they are looking for the opinions of others.

I never wrote about the hum because while I did not believe it was something necessarily unique to me, I did think that it was just one more of the oddities I have experienced in my lifetime.

The beauty of ATS is that you will come across a myriad of people that will either share your opinions, ideas and beliefs, or not. You don’t have to be soul mates to communicate on ATS, in fact, some of the most interesting threads on ATS are those were the members do not agree.

It is okay that we don’t have a lot in common; it is not necessary. We do have at least one thing in common; we are both members of ATS.

You wouldn't remember if you heard a loud jet or rocket in the early morning hours of 2/17/2010?

No, I can’t say that I do remember that day in particular, but I do remember several months back we experienced a loud sonic boom that shook the entire building where I work. It scared the dickens out of all of us. Security did a sweep and found nothing awry. My first thought was that something in the lab or the O2 storage unit had blown up, but whatever it was it was not in our building. I did not notice a particular change in the hum at the time because I was at work and I do remember that it was exceptionally busy that morning.

I have not looked into what may be causing the hum to change its level of intensity. I have lived with it for so long that I have grown to accept it. I grew up near a Navy Air Testing Center. They tested planes almost endlessly day and night. When people came to visit they would ask how we could live with all the noise from the planes and were befuddled when the answer was always “What noise?”

There are times when the hum is more annoying than usual and I find that a fan helps to mask the sound.

As for my misspelling of Loxahatchee, well I guess it is proof positive that a lot of my time on ATS is stolen moments. Hard to do a good job of proofreading when you are writing on the fly.

I'm in the UK and i can confirm the hum IS
getting also seems to have a pulse to
it now also.

the biggest problem is locating the dam thing as
you cannot determine direction

the strange thing is it is so quiet yet so loud!
does that make any sense to you who hear it?

Second line.

EDIT: Actually after reading into it, ive changed my mind, this is crazy.

A noise that cannot be detected or heard with audio equipment, that is heard by humans and described as a noise inside their head's. Sound's like some sort of Mind Control experiment.. : / just... throw that out there.

I have heard the HUM since I moved here two years ago. This is the first time in a while that I haven't lived in a flat. I now live in a bungalow and ever since I moved in I have been tormented by the HUM. Initially it drove me so insane I would get up and try to find where it was coming from....wandering the streets and the garden....could never 'pin it down'. Now I try to use it as a meditative device - if I actually think about it I CANNOT sleep - I try to force it further into the background.

Would dearly welcome correspondence from fellow sufferers!

I should add that the HUM is not an audible thing. It is something that initially seems like a noise but it resonates through my body. It is almost the opposite of hearing - I feel it first and then try to hear it. It is overwhelming physically - I wonder if I have ever 'heard' it.

I can hear the hum, and yes, it has been louder than usual. I was just wondering today, if there is something wrong with me, because the humming and frequencies are more pronounced, more shrill than normal.

wow a member since 04.. impressive. So what is this humming everyone is talking about.

Is this a left ear/right ear thing? Last year I had a droning vibrating hum in my left ear for about 8 months. I had my hearing checked and there was nothing out of the ordinary. It was only in my left ear, and it was sporadic all day long for months. I even checked to see if there were any mining ops going on - nothing. Rarely do I hear it now. There has been nothing added to the area, and this is a small area.

I think i've always heard some kind of hum or ring in my ears. You should look into getting treated for tinnitus. I think I have tinnitus, that or I just don't know I'm psychic ha

This may be the Music of the Spheres you are hearing. People actually meditate on these sounds of creation.

It is also called the Word (as in Genesis in the Bible), Shabd, Naam, etc. I once heard it in such a way that it sounded like all the cars, planes, and trains in the world were running at highway traffic but much, much louder. Basically these sounds are the underpinning of creation. There are also lights, colors, and sounds associated with the various dimensions of life/levels of creation. You can read more about it by looking up Sant Mat that explains the mystical theory behind it all.

Since I began meditating using the Sant Mat method, I have rediscovered the sound I used to hear as a child, like a high pitch whine associated with the old tv sets. I concentrate on the right ear only (sometimes placing my ear on a pillow and lying down) and then the sounds turn into other sounds like crickets, rushing water, and birds. The sound is nonstop now, and I have to just tune it out. I do not have any illnesses or hearing issues and no reason for tinnitis.

But I do think the tinnitis everyone is reporting can be related to one, loud sounds and music, but also that more people are hearing the sounds of our universe.

it sounds to me like a very large diesel engine far away
and the low frequency hum is traveling through the ground
and resonating with certain structures.

BUT it could be some goverment test of a piece
of apparatus to see the effect it has on people
far out YES but the frequency is annoying to
the point that it makes me agitated beyond normal.

i have contacted the local council environmental dept
they have confirmed i am not alone and state they cannot determine
the source because the hum is multi directional.

i will keep looking till i find the course of this hum.
i will say it does stop for hours but does not have
any pattern you can make out.

other friends have heard it in my flat but older
people cant seem to hear it.that does make sense though.

I am seriously considering hiring a sound technician
to see what they make of all this and maybe stop by
my flat to see if it is recordable.

i think it should show up on a scope with some
sensitive equipment attached then we could see
the signature of the sound wave and determine
the frequency.

i want compensation for ruined sleep and more....

i even heard it 10 miles away at my mothers in a little
village. i was thinking of putting a notice up on the
local village board to see if any residents notice it.

This is what I hear at times but it seems to undulate. It seems to come in waves. It doesn't really get louder and softer as much as it sounds like the frequency changes in a wave like pattern.

It's also called the Sound Current.

This part of the post seems apt:

Sitting in contemplation in my bedroom, I began to hear a continuous rolling
thunder, as if a jetliner had decided to hover over my house. This went on for
several minutes. I wasn't too worried because I knew from Twitchell's book that the
sound of thunder corresponds to the physical plane consciousness; I could rest
assured no Boing 747 was going to fall through my roof.

Most people investigating this hum seem to want to record it as if it were just a sound. I have a very strong feeling this is not just a sound. What if we could measure other parameters which this HUM might be affecting? For example, our brain waves. How about electromagnetic changes?

I'm sure others can come up with more...

A fan at night definitely helps. The sound of the ocean also. Get out of the house more during the day and at night try not to go to bed thinking about it. The more you focus on it the worse it gets.

At least we know there are many of us "hearers" around the world. I dream of the day when everyone will sense the HUM and finally we should get some answers. Hopefully the truth.

First, in every thread or forum I've read about this topic there are a large group that describe something other than a hum. They call it a hiss or a whine or a buzz. You may be hearing that but that's not what the OP is referring to. I know because I hear it as well. It is a hum. It sounds very similar to what you would expect a distant diesel locomotive to sound like if it was just sitting and idling.

I am one of the rare (it seems) people that hear this sound in only one ear. My ear canals are different diameters which certainly could be the cause of that. And yes, the hearing's "automatic gain" does play it's part. The quieter the background noise, the louder the hum but it seems oddly out of proportion that a sound that can be easily drown out by background noise can sound so loud as to drive one nuts! The problem with the sound is that it's so low in frequency, fundemental at 72 Hz in my case, that it penetrates EVERYTHING. Pillows, blankets, fingers, even good earplugs! This very low frequency makes it very difficult to locate the direction of the noise due to limitations in our ability to process sounds this low.

But there is hope. I am convinced that the source of these hums are fans. Yup, some kind of ventilation or HVAC system fan. With almost every town having an all night convenience store and the like, there's always some heating or cooling system on somebody's roof running 24 hours a day. My proof? Well I suffer from this horrid sound every night. But only in the Fall, Winter and Spring. It's midnight here and I don't hear a thing, but it was in the 90s most of day. No need for a heating system now! But as soon as the weather gets cool, the hum will return.

Also, one of the famous hums was determined to be fans at a nearby Chrysler plant. And it all makes sense. Isn't it more likely something simple like that than some kind of mother earth dolphin chakras or a government mind control program? I also read somewhere on the net a formula which, using a popular industrial motor's rotation speed and a five blade fan, would produce a 72 Hz tone. Using a frequency generator and listening to the beat cycles I was able establish that the sound I hear is at 72 Hz. Of course there are many kinds of motors and fans so we might all be hearing different version of a similar sound.

I will see if I can find a few of those sites I read, but here's an informative one to start with:
Wikipedia's Hum page.

I am not trying to be funny here but there may be something to that old tinfoil hat thing. I think the reason the "sound" can not be recorded is that it is not a sound but a signal much like a radio signal. In that case it may be about to be blocked or jammed. People that hear it should start to take notes about how and where they hear it. The thing I noticed was people talking about it getter louder at night. At night radio signals travel better.
Go into a metal building, how is the hum in there? Go out side of the metal building, is there a difference? .
I do not hear the hum but I heard about it years ago and I though then and still do think it is some kind of radio signal. But if it is where is it coming from?

I would love to be able to get someone that could here the hum and put them in a lead lined room to do some radio frequency testing.

Your post struck a chord with me.

I wonder if the push for us all to go digital has anything to do with this.

The government has forced us all away for analog devices to digital devices.

Are they sending analog signals that some of us are picking up on?

i am away from my flat and have been for couple of days
did pop in to have a quick look see and i am loving not
hearing the hum AS MUCH!

I am around 7 miles away and now i can only
here it very faintly and it seems now at this
distance or place is not resonating so well
which is great.

it is pulsing more here though but i can bare this

next stop local council and maybe local paper to ask if any
stories been sent in.

what i want is a specialist sound technician with top recording tech
and to find the source if only to prove other people its there.

i have excellent hearing but that hum i gotta say it seems to
resonate with peoples actual heads you feel it in your head?

if that makes any sense. and no its not tinnitus sick of hearing
that explanation
