Actually, no. I can hear what seems to be a lot of static-like sounds with a bit of a hum behind it. Am I missing anything?

The sound I am hearing is more a very deep rumble. An ATS member, sheenan, made a cleaner sound bite of my recordings and uploaded it to youtube. Here it is. You seem to be able to hear it better with headphones on:

I noticed at the beginning of February that it was exceptionally loud one night (I never got a chance to get on here and say anything) but I knew it was also around the time that a solar flare was due to reach Earth (Feb 4-5). However, I didn't actually get the chance to watch for when it actually did come to correlate it with when I heard the sound the loudest. (Meaning, I wasn't watching for when it actually hit....just going off of when said it was suppose to be not remembering if it hit right before, during, or after).

Since this very well could have been a coincidence I've been waiting for when another solar flare was due to reach Earth, which is Feb 13-15. While again, I haven't taken the time to start monitoring both so that I can start better documentation, I am interested to see if/how it changes in volume for me the next few days.

I'm sure it will also depend on the size of the solar flare & whether it was directly at Earth, etc. I'm not suggesting the hum is coming from the solar wind, but I'm wondering if it is causing more pressure on whatever creates the sound we hear. Maybe it is another clue to zero in on whatever it is.

I've noticed before a solar wind is due to reach Earth that there is an "odd" pressure on the magnetosphere visual that I check at this website. Sorry - I don't currently have the scientfic name for what it's doing or even documentation yet since I'm just starting to entertain this theory, but it shows a large bow shock (not correct term) that isn't really showing strong almost looks like an invisible force hitting the magnetosphere that doesn't really register as pressure but sends the magnetosphere in different directions (my personal observation/opinion...not proof/validation). It happens before the actual flare is suppose to reach Earth & seems to be more of a period of the "hum" increasing than the actual solar flare.

So when Isaac said he heard it (Friday?) in Bellevue (btw Isacc...I work in Bellevue too
) I checked the sites & it was showing that weird "invisible" hit and I've been hearing it more as well (but so far, not nearly as loud as I did at the beginning of Feb.). Also, when people in other parts of the country are also suddenly hearing it louder at the same time is another reason I started thinking about it. Maybe with a combination of individuals who are sensitive to hearing these things, as well as increased solar activity, the weakening of the Earth's magnetic field, as well as holes in Earth's magnetosphere...(and I imagine many other things besides), perhaps this is more to our puzzle?

If I do ever get any more data together on this I will share it. I'm just incredibly busy these days & not sure if/when I'll get to it. But, if anyone else has anything or does it...please by all means do share! And if no one else is interested at least U2U me.

Hi there! I wish I could give you more than one star. Excellent post. I am especially interested in this:

Also, when people in other parts of the country are also suddenly hearing it louder at the same time is another reason I started thinking about it. Maybe with a combination of individuals who are sensitive to hearing these things, as well as increased solar activity, the weakening of the Earth's magnetic field, as well as holes in Earth's magnetosphere...(and I imagine many other things besides), perhaps this is more to our puzzle?

You know, the more I read about the above mentioned things, the more I think there may/must be a correlation there somewhere. Someone here on ATS, sombody made an excellent thread regarding the magnetosphere and including a video of a newswoman that presented a theory regarding the magnetosphere and how this interracted with many things, one of them being the mantle of the earth. It got me to thinking.

I believe that what you are suggesting is certainly a possibility. The fact that the sun just had an Mclass earth-directed flare today is something maybe we can use to help with this theory. As soon as we know when it is suspected to hit, we can make a point of paying attention to the rumble. If there is a correlation, it should be quite loud then...unless our part of the world is facing the wrong way, but I don't know how that works.

I will go for a walk here in just a mention we are suposed to be feeling the affects of a flare starting today, so maybe there will be some rumbling? I'll let ya know.

Edit: I forgot to add. I still think this all ties with tectonics too. It has long been suspected the sun has more to do with the earths tectonic/volcanic activity than previously realized....and it would explain why this rumbling seems to eminate from the sky, but felt from the ground.

YES! Very similar to this noise. Where did you find that recording?
Tom Moir, professor at Massey University's Institute of Information and Mathematical Sciences in Auckland, are the one who did the recording of what's now being called the "Auckland hum."

Nop, this is not from an earthquake, and the frequency is around 56Hz.

Seems like the recording you have are a bit more violent, but otherwise it sounds like the same sound as I linked to. Difficult really to be sure, but have a look at this youtube.

This is all really interesting. All this talk about the sun has made me recall watching a television program in the year 2000 (roseanne barr had her own talk show!
She was interviewing a man, I think either Richard Hoagland or Jim Marrs I am not sure, and he was talking about sun spots that were going to occur in May 2001, just the time my family and I all started hearing the HUM. He hypothesized that they where going to be violent and possibly even apocalyptic, funny I sure thought the end was nigh. I am reading the book The Dragon and the Disk and it contains a paragraph describing unexplained "thunderings" and droning/explosive sounds from the 1800's. Meanwhile UFOS where being reported in the area.... This may not be a new phenomenon......HARVEST TIME??????

Here is an article written on "The Hum". It appeared in the Journal of Scientific Exploration in 2004. No conclusive answers but a good read.

Perhaps the earth is feeling the M6.6 flare from the other day - it is due to arrive any time now. Just thought it might have a correlation as to what is going on in WA. At the least something to consider when speaking of solar acitivity and earthquakes.

Most definately. I am paying close attention to it all. I wasn't out much today...and it is very windy,making it hard to hear much of anything.

I am hoping (fingers crossed) that I can see the northern lights tonight. They are predicting it possible. If so, I will be sure to get some time-lapsed photos (so excited!!!)

Roald..I am on my laptop now (old thing, sound not working) I'll listen to it later tonight. Thanks for the link.

If you don't hear from me later, it will probably be because my power went out fromt the wind!

I was looking at the video for Feb 14 for the magnetosphere simulation & saw something interesting. You can watch the whole day here.

If you look at the image on the upper right, it shows the pressure coming from the direction of the sun. The scale is on the lower right of that image. During the beginning of the day there isn't a whole lot of pressure (with the exception of a very short period about a quarter way in).

Then around 17:00 UTC is the beginning of an influx of pressure. I was noticing that shortly around 18:30 UTC the pressure really started up. So for giggles I decided to convert the time to PST & check the time of the 4.3 quake at Helens....and that happened at 10:35 PST...which is 18:35 UTC.

The video doesn't take long to run through the whole 24 hours - and watch especially from 17:00 UTC on (Which shows on the lower part of the image itself. You don't have to really use the pressure scale to visually see when the pressure hits. I also do a lot of pause/play whenever I'm viewing these.

Now, having said all that - all day Sat. & since this afternoon - we've been blowing away & getting poured on with rain on & off so I haven't been able to hear the hum over all of that racket so far, but I anxiously await for the M-Class & X-Class flares come in. This is a very good opportunity to see if this idea has any merit regarding the connection (at least for me)

You can watch the video for any full day if you go here. Sometimes it can take some time to buffer the video, but it's well worth the wait.

Ok, I'm going to get all crazy & attempt to show images on here
Keep in mind the quake was at 10:35 am PST.

Here is about an hour before the quake 9:35 am PST (low pressure)

Here is 10:06 am PST which in the video you see a bit of a pressure flux come in

10:21 am PST

and...10:36am PST

10:50 am PST - just to show a contrast from the first image...and that this is what I would expect to see when the solar flares have reached us

Okay, finally got to listen to it and I have to say no. Not for me anyways. To me that sounds more like an electrical humming, what you might experience when standing under power lines. What I am hearing is definately a far off lightening that just goes on and on and you can feel it. It is 'bigger' than that noise, if that makes sense?

posted on Feb, 15 2011 @ 03:08 AM
reply to post by westcoast

Actually yes that does make sense. For me the sound would change in intensity however. So initially (and on other occasions) it sounded as if it was a heavy low tone rumbling but it did get more intense at times and I could clearly differentiate between tones. Which is what that recording sounds like to me, maybe if the source was closer to you, you could sense the differing tones.

One source of the hum can very well be from ELF transmitters. They are known for being able to create a low, grumbling noise on the threshold of audibility.

posted on Feb, 16 2011 @ 03:43 AM
From the article I cited above

HAARP is invoked perhaps more often than any other single hypothesis as a cause of the Hum. One Hum sufferer describes himself as ‘‘HAARPooned’’. However, there is a significant problem in attributing the Hum to HAARP: reports of the Hum predate HAARP. There are reliable reports of the Hum in the United States in 1991, 1992, and 1993 (e.g., Taos, New Mexico) and well-documented reports in the United Kingdom that go back to at least the early 1970s. Although research into ionospheric heating dates back to the 1960s, the HAARP facility itself does not appear to have been fully operational until the mid-1990s. There is an additional logical problem in attributing the Hum to HAARP- generated low-frequency radio waves. These waves apparently can travel for ‘‘thousands of kilometers’’ without significant attenuation, yet the Hum appears to be a local phenomenon confined to several tens of kilometers

And for Roald from the same source

TACAMO aircraft and associated VLF transmissions are in many ways coincident in time and space with Hum reports. For security reasons, the precise areas in which TACAMO aircraft operate are classified. The only public information that the US Navy provides is that one squadron of planes is deployed to cover the Atlantic Ocean, the other to cover the Pacific. Historically, the area with the most Hum reports is the United Kingdom. A prime operating area for US submarines—especially during the Cold War—would have been the North Atlantic, with the United Kingdom a logical base of operations for communication functions. Although it may be possible that Hum reports in the United Kingdom date back to as early as the 1940s, widespread reports appear to date back to the early 1970s or mid 1960s. This is about the same period of time that TACAMO aircraft first became operational.

So now you have me thinking. There is a Bangor submarine base just south of my direction, in the area from where I am hearing the noise. Look at this description:

Bangor Sub Base manages the third largest collection of nuclear weapons in the country, with approximately 1,700 Trident missiles either stored at its hill-top depot, or onboard its fleet of eight Trident submarines which still roam the seas on secret missions. The base covers over 7,000 acres on the shores of Hood Canal, in Puget Sound, and was activated as a sub base in 1977, after being established as a munitions depot in World War Two. Base closures elsewhere have led to recent growth at Bangor, and now over 10,000 people work at the base.

20 miles W of Seattle, two miles E of Poulsbo

I live in NW oregon. I can see washington. Yesterday and day b4 we had a lot of thunder from the weather.

Are you sure it wasn't that?

Not sure if you know or not, but if you take 530 past Arlington towards Darrington there's a road on the right called Jim Creek. At the end of the road is the sVLF radio station (Command & Control) for the Pacific Nuclear Submarine fleet called Jim Creek.

Jim Creek (Global

Naval Radio Station [NAVRADSTA], Jim Creek Naval Radio Station (T), Jim Creek, Oso, WA

The United States Navy VLF radio transmitter and Antenna are located at Jim Creek, in Oso, Washington. The primary mission of this radio site is to provide radio transmitting capabilities for the Pacific submarine fleet. Established in the 1950's, the transmitting system developed for the site remains 'state -of-the-art' in producing low frequency emissions world-wide. Located near Arlington, Washington, in the foothills of the Cascades, north of Seattle, the site has 5,000 largely forested acres.

I'm not sure exactly what the Antenna is, perhaps there are a few different types along with some redundancy, but if you go near the boundary (they are patrolled by soldiers in Humvee last time I was there), you can see large red and white painted towers throughout the foothills in the area.

If you look at the satellite photos on Goggle Maps you can see the maintenance roads to some of the towers on the upper ridges running east and west. In the center of the there is a distinct circular area that appears to have had most trees & perhaps more removed at one time.

I stumbled upon that site while searching for properties a few years ago. There was one really nice home I looked at (the rest average crap), but after driving to the end of the road and looking at guys with automatic weapons staring at me though the fence in the middle of what I thought was no where I looked it up and considered it might not be such a good buy. As I didn't know what living that close to those antennas would do to ones health etc.

Now you have me wondering, maybe those waves I'm feeling might mean I'm too close here. Anyway something to consider.
