Until recently, very recently in fact, I lived with a 132kV (132,000 Volt) power line less than 20 meters to the west, and 50m high, from my house. I
got used to living with "The Buzz", and it varied in pitch, and intensity depending on what the weather was like. I knew just from the sound if it
was raining (more a hissy kind of buzz) or dry (more of a hum) without having to look out of the _
One of the qualities of the buzz, is that it was so nebulous, you could hear it, but you couldn't give a direction or location to it. Sometimes it
even seemed to originate from within the house itself.
It was removed only last week (we had quite a party watching them winch the cables down), due to EU legislation meaning that they cannot now maintain
overground HT cables within a certain distance from populated housing. They had to re-route and bury it instead.
Strangely enogh, the area now seems ghostly quiet without that reassuring hum. That said, I'm glad its gone. 9 people in this road have died of
cancer, two of which were brain cancer. The road is only 20 houses long. Yes, I blame the EMF's from those HT cables for it.
