I lived in New Orleans as well, and the ground is so marshy that shockwaves pass through it like moving through thick mud. Pylons for something were
being placed somewhere along the Mississippi, and my apartment on Magazine Street was being pounded apart little by little by it,
dinkdink........dinkdink........dinkdink. I could feel the buses rumble along for a good two or three blocks.
Anyway. The sound, I believe, is an unmanned aerial vehicle I believe.
LISTEN CLOSELY AT 1:55 to 1:59 on this.
Compare to other sounds generated by the same applications
I have just gone through dozens of videos looking for one that shows UAV sounds clearly.
They are all covered up with music or voice overs and flashy cuts.
Because the sound is a dead give away?
Sometime this summer, on a warm moonless night I went outside at 3AM and noticed this hum. HmmmmmmmMMMMMMMmmmmmmmMMMMMMMmmmmmmm
I called the cops and tried to explain to them the noise as a pulsating electrical kind of vibration. They didn't seem to be taking me serious until I
said it sounded like an electrical transformer about to blow and maybe it was a fire hazard, I mentioned there were no street or house lights on for
a few blocks behind my house.
A few days later I saw a video for the P-791 from Lockheed Martin with actual vehicle sound.
I and I said "holy crap thats it!" , however now I can't find a video with the vehicle sound anywhere.
Incidentally the town fixed the street light on the block behind my house.
Could it be that the noise comes from street lighting?
I seem to recall some kind of urban summer noise from streetlamps. Or was that cicadas?
Any inner city people recall street light noises?
Here we go Radio Frequency Interference caused by Streetlight malfunction
Also another possibility is Asphalt Repaving
My incident happened in Colorado near an airport and major roads/highways.

Hey Mikey, sorry for late reply. I tried u2u but wouldn't allow me.. said i could only do that with a mod?? Anyways, i find it difficult to relate
this hum to something for comparison but if i had to, i would say its very similar to the sound you would experience being under a high voltage power
line. The difference though is that this hum while being constant for a time, will briefly "spike" or increase for short time then return to the
"steady low" and the cycle continously repeats itself..? Thats the best way i can describe it. I have at times gotten nausea and dizzy as well as
ringing in the ears even but this is not always the case. ...and like you, if in the house laying in bed no matter how i position myself or my head
the hum is a constant. I notice it more so in the calm and still of the night.. nothing else to drown it out. However im certain it happens during the
day as well, just not as noticeable. Hope that answers your question. Would like to hear back from ya. Oh by the way, im in the se.
Anyways, Happy New Year to you and everyone else!! Be safe.
After hearing your description of the hum, I agree, and can confirm that we must be hearing the same thing. It isn't so much of a pulsating sound,
but it does have spikes where it gets louder. And I agree that it is more evident in the quite/still of laying in bed at night time, but I have heard
it during the day if it's quiet in the house.
After my last post, I did wake up and hear the sound extremely loud at 4:45AM on Dec 30th. I eventually made a recording at 5:24AM (still unable to
fall asleep) with my iPhone 5, but when I play back the recording I hear nothing. I even tried listening with good quality ear-bud headphones at full
volume, but can't hear the hum on the recording. I may try and view the recording on my computer in Sony Soundforge so that I can look at the waves
of the audio recording, but I doubt it will show anything that I can identify as strange.
Interestingly enough, I just got back from spending 3 nights in Montana just North of Whitefish, and I could hear the hum there one night. It wasn't
as loud as usual, but I could hear it one night. I can rule out that it was anything industrial because we were staying in a remote location in the
middle of the woods.
Anyway, thanks for sharing your input with me. If you experience anything else out of the ordinary, or if you have any questions for me, let me know.
