Again, all i can say is this is no ordinary sound because I lived here 20+ years and it has never existed before. My attempts to describe the sound
are somewhat incompetent because I have never heard anything quite like it. It's not a hum. It's like the sound of air but not wind. I can hear
it but it has no tone. It sounds like the whole earth is the speaker in a way such as how a surface transducer can make a wall or whatever object
create a sound. It comes on very directly and then it switches off very clearly. There is no fading in and out. It's on or it's not. It has a
level of audibility but it's not the same as the volume of a tone.
BUT.. regarding the HUM, that has been an issue for the last few years as well. I started noticing it in my telephone (land line) first. I thought
something was wrong with the phone. Then I noticed it was in the AM radio when I tried to listen. It ended up getting so loud on the AM radio and in
the telephone that it became useless. I noticed it was coming out of all my electronics in the house. I went crazy, rewired the phone system,
installed new jacks, checked all the grounds in the power system. I couldn't make it go away. I could go out and shut off the house's power at the
box and the hum, which is pretty much a dead on 60hz ground hum tone, could still be heard. It was in the whoel neighborhood. I walked around to all
the telephone poles trying to locate a transformer that was noisy but the sound never got louder, it was just everywhere. Hummmmmmm. I have
basically learned to live with it because there's nothing I can do about it. Everywhere I go throughout the city I can hear it.
I also suffer from tinnitus, and know the difference between the tinnitus tones and tones outside. This hum I recorded on a number of occasions. It
just sounds like ground loop hum but it's everywhere. All I know is it wasn't always omnipresent. I don't know if that's the same tone people
all hearing all over or if this town just has some kind of epidemic of bad wiring.
I'm going to try get a recording of this bizarre rumbling/venting this weekend assuming it doesn't mysteriously go away. I'm not sure how, but
I'm thinking just setting a condenser mic into the ground should work.
