I keep going back and forth between fracking and arcing. I mentioned last night that the biggest difference between the fracking sound and the roaring sound is the spread of the frequencies (the fracking is grouped within a certain frequency range, while the roaring is spread out and only peaks at specific frequencies). Weeelllll, I had an idea this morning. If the sound from the fracking site is being reflected off the cloud cover, then it might be getting amplified at those specific frequencies by the Earth's Schumann resonances. It might be a superposition of the two. That would lead to the spread of the fracking sound being amplified at the specific frequencies we're seeing.
When I get the chance (probably tonight), I've got an experiment I want to try. I have an idea....edit on 11-1-2012 by CLPrime because: (no reason given)
Amateur radio operators are very familiar with atmospheric ducting or “skip” as we call it, which (with the help of the ionosphere when the sun is cooperative) enables some very long distance radio communications well beyond line of sight. The same sometimes holds true for loud audio, such as thunder or sonic booms. See my descriptive graphic below the “continue reading” line.

No....I didn't forget CL....I did some checking, and the nearest fracking to this location is the Haynesville Shale arae. I thought it was closer, but it is in the North west corner of Louisiana...too far from me. So I guess it's back to square one. ugggh
