A mystery surrounding a strange noise that is keeping people awake at night in southampton, new forest, hythe, Holburyhas, Dibden Purlieu and West end, taken a serious problem..


Gordon Windebank, from Swaythling, who is being kept awake at night by the mystery noise.


THE mystery surrounding a strange noise that is keeping people awake at night has taken a new twist.
Southampton residents say they are being plagued by the same sound that is making life a misery for people living on the eastern edge of the New Forest.
As revealed in yesterday’s Daily Echo, the low-frequency drone is causing sleepless nights in Hythe, Holbury and Dibden Purlieu.

One woman has resorted to visiting a friend in a bid to escape the din.
Another is said to be considering early retirement after being badly affected by the stress of living with the noise.
Now people living in Southampton and West End have come forward to report similar problems.
Gordon Windebank, 82, of Broadlands Road, Swaythling, said: “It’s driving me mad.
“It started with a low rumble about 18 months ago and has been getting steadily worse since last Sunday. I notice it when I go to bed at 10.30pm and it still seems to be going on when I get up the next morning.”
Mr Windebank has been prescribed sleeping pills by his doctor and says he may be forced to go back for more.
“The noise is terrible at night,” he said. “I’ve got double glazing but it just seems to go right through.
“It’s making me very bad tempered and I don’t seem to have any energy.”
he sound has also been heard in Romsey, but neither Test Valley Borough Council nor Southampton City Council have received any complaints.
New Forest residents affected by the all-night noise include Roger Guy, a member of Hythe and Dibden Parish Council.
Cllr Guy, who has an engineering background, said: “It’s a low frequency droning noise that becomes quite obtrusive at night.
“It tends to be worse inside buildings and is very disturbing to anyone with hearing attuned to low frequency sounds, particularly young people.”
Cllr Guy said the sound could also be heard during the day.

have any Idea what the hell is that noise? very sad that the goverment can't do anything and just give a Sleep Pil to them..

The first thing that comes to mind is underground tunneling. There are lots of videos on YT about underground cities in the US now and how they cross the country. I also read that the queen is having an underground shelter built.

It is happening everywhere, not just the UK. Many places in the U.S. are experiencing the same thing. The governments know what it is but are playing dumb about it.

So it only at night? Intermittent or constant?

For some reason the idea of the Ionosphere lowering altitude at night time popped into mind. Just a thought.

There's actually reports of noises like this all over the world. There doesn't seem to be any single agreed-upon theory regarding its nature, either...

I agree completely. If the governments didn't know what it was, we'd be seeing open and obvious efforts from a variety of fields in these places working until they did find out. The fact we see nothing and no one at official levels of interest out working? That pretty well says it all, doesn't it?

I think the moles have been very very busy digging all over the place. I'm still as clueless as everyone for why or what is supposed to make all of it worth the effort ..but it's my opinion it's certainly going on at quite a pace.

The Hum


Wow Very nice Link! 2000 more poeple hear it from UK! Tq Tq So much!




London and Southampton, United Kingdom 1940s[edit]
More than 2,000 people reported hearing sounds dating back to the 1940s in the London and Southampton areas of Great Britain. Deming cited Glasgow, Scotland's Sunday Herald 1995 report claiming that the Hum was, "first reported in the late 1950s when people in Britain began to report hearing a most unusual noise—a combination of a humming, droning, and buzzing sound."[4]:573
Bristol Hum, Bristol, Britain 1979[edit]
In Britain, the most famous example was the Bristol Hum that made headlines in the late 1970s.[11]
Largs, Scotland 1980s[edit]
Since the 1980s, the Hum has been bothering people living in coastal towns in the west coastal area of Scotland including Largs, a coastal town about 31 km west of Glasgow.[4]:574
Taos Hum, Taos, New Mexico, USA 1992[edit]
It was in 1992 that the Hum phenomenon began to be reported in North America following complaints from many citizens living near the town of Taos, New Mexico.[4]:571
The University of New Mexico undertook studies of hum sufferers in Taos.[16] One of the researchers reported that the Hum was close to 66 hertz, two octaves below middle C, although it could go as low as the lowest E on a piano.[17]
An ongoing low frequency noise, audible only to some, is thought to originate somewhere near this town and is consequently sometimes known as the Taos Hum. Those who have heard the Hum usually hear it west of Taos near Tres Orejas. The Taos Hum was featured on the TV show Unsolved Mysteries,[18] and it was also briefly mentioned in an episode of The X-Files.[19]
Kokomo, Indiana, USA 1999[edit]
Kokomo, a city of 47,000, allocated $100,000 in 2002 to investigate a hum after nearly 100 complaints were made since 1999. Some suffers blamed physical symptoms on the hum, including headaches, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, and joint pain, with one reporting that her health improved when she moved out of the town.[20][21] In November 2002, Acentech was hired by the Board of Public Works and Safety of the City of Kokomo to investigate the Hum. Following a public meeting held 2 December 2002, Acentech investigation of acoustic sources did not find any conclusive cause and suggested non-acoustic phenomena, such as microwave (radio frequency) hearing, electrosensitivity, chemical sensitivity, hypersensitivity to natural geomagnetic phenomena may cause the "types of symptoms that these people are experiencing."[13]
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada pre-2003[edit]
The Hum has also been heard since before 2003 by residents on Canada's southwest Coast in the region around the city of Vancouver.[14]:43
Woodland, County Durham, England 2011[edit]
In June 2011, residents of the small rural village of Woodland, England reported experiencing a hum that had already lasted for over two months.[22]
Windsor, Ontario, Canada 2011[edit]
This phenomenon, first noticed in 2009, has also been reported since 2011 throughout Windsor and Essex County in Ontario, Canada.[23] A 2011 study by Earthquakes Canada indicated that it may be originating from the heavily-industrialised Zug Island area on the US side of the Detroit river.[24] A two-hour telephone town hall meeting in 2012 received calls from 13,000 residents, with another 9,000 leaving comments over the next week, although not all of those were from people who could hear the hum.[25]
In 2013 the Canadian Government allocated $60,000 for research by the University of Windsor to determine the source of the noise.[26] As of April 2013, a Canadian scientist is using sound-level meters and a portable "pentangular array" of cameras and microphones to try and precisely identify the source of the sound, in order to know who exactly to ask to fix it.[24]
Calgary, Alberta, Canada 2008[edit]
The volunteer Ranchlands Noise Investigation Team began investigating the Ranchlands hum in 2008. Marcia Epstein, an acoustic ecologist at the University of Calgary and a member of the Ranchlands Noise Investigation Team, described the hum as "a concentration of frequencies around 40 hertz, and 40 cycles per second",[27] sometimes described as a "vibrational feeling",[28] affecting "12 to 20 per cent of the community."[27]
County Kerry, Ireland 2012[edit]
The Hum has also frustrated residents in County Kerry, Ireland.[29] This led to it being raised in the Irish Parliament by Michael Healy-Rae, who personally heard the Hum. The official response was described by Healy-Rae as "away with the fairies gobbledygook."[30]
Seattle, Washington, USA 2012[edit]
The phenomenon was also recorded in 2012 in Seattle, where some residents report having heard it in previous years.[31]
Wellington, New Zealand 2012[edit]
In Wellington, New Zealand the City Council was flooded with complaints about a mysterious hum.[32]
Italian National Research Council, ISTI, Pisa, Italy, 2013[edit]
In Pisa, Italy the ISTI institute for Science and Technology of the Italian CNR researchers are reporting of a very disturbing hum especially in the area of the High Performance Computing Laboratory. After some investigations, people from the maintenance department have declared the problem solved. The hum remains and annoyed people remain as well..[33]
Possible explanations[edit]

Some explanations of hums for which no definitive source has been found have been put forth. These include:
Tinnitus[edit]
A suggested diagnosis of tinnitus, a disturbance of the auditory system, is used by some physicians in response to complaints about The Hum. Tinnitus is generated internally by the auditory and nervous systems, with no external stimulus. However, the theory that the Hum is actually tinnitus fails to explain why the Hum can be heard only at certain geographical locations, to the degree those reports are accurate. There may exist individual differences as to the threshold of perception of acoustic or non-acoustic stimuli, or other normal individual variations that could contribute to the perception of the Hum by some people in the population and not by others.
While the Hum is hypothesized by some to be a form of low frequency tinnitus[34] such as the venous hum, some sufferers claim it is not internal, being worse inside their homes than outside. However, others insist that it is equally bad indoors and outdoors. Some people notice the Hum only at home, while others hear it everywhere they go. Some sufferers report that it is made worse by soundproofing (e.g., double glazing), which serves only to decrease other environmental noise, thus making the Hum more apparent.[citation needed]
People who both suffer from tinnitus and hear the Hum describe them as qualitatively different, and many hum sufferers can find locations where they do not hear the hum at all. An investigation by a team of scientists in Taos dismissed the possibility that the Hum was tinnitus as highly unlikely.[35]
Spontaneous otoacoustic emissions[edit]
Human ears generate their own noises, called spontaneous otoacoustic emissions, which affects between 38 percent to 60 percent of people, although the majority are unaware of these sounds.[36] The people who hear these sounds typically hear a faint buzzing or ringing, especially if they are otherwise in complete silence.[37] However, these emissions occur with equal frequency across age groups within the population,[citation needed] and the Hum typically occurs in regional clusters and to older people.[4]:575–576 Recordings of sounds that appear to be the Hum, such as that made in Auckland, would indicate that otoacoustic emissions cannot explain all occurrences of the Hum.[10]
Colliding ocean waves[edit]
On early June, 2008 an article published in Proceedings of the Royal Society[38] announced the location of a "hum hotspot", an "energetic source area stretching from the Labrador Sea to south of Iceland, where wind patterns are especially conducive to generating oppositely traveling waves of same period, and the ocean depth is favourable for efficient microseism generation through the ‘organ pipe’ resonance of the compression waves."[39] Researchers from the USArray Earthscope have tracked down a series of infrasonic humming noises produced by waves crashing together and thence into the ocean floor, off the North-West coast of the USA. Potentially, sound from these collisions could travel to many parts of the globe.[40][41]
Mechanical devices[edit]
In the case of Kokomo, Indiana, a city with heavy industries, the origin of the hum was thought to have been traced to two sources. The first was a pair of fans in a cooling tower at the local DaimlerChrysler casting plant emitting a 36 Hz tone. The second was an air compressor intake at the Haynes International plant emitting a 10 Hz tone. After those devices were corrected, however, the hum persisted.[13][42]
Media coverage[edit]

The Taos Hum was featured on the TV show Unsolved Mysteries.[18] It was also featured in LiveScience's "Top Ten Unexplained Phenomena", where it took tenth place

Yeah that comet(s) might affect electrical transformers.

Did you see the thread about Mars being affected electrically, magnetically by ISON?

With pleasure Cheesy:


As it turns out, the ionosphere reflects certain frequencies of radio waves. So the waves bounce between the ground and the ionosphere and make their way around the planet. The composition of the ionosphere at night is different than during the day because of the presence or absence of the sun. You can pick up some radio stations better at night because the reflection characteristics of the ionosphere are better at night.­


This is also the concept behind HAARP, bouncing radio waves off of the ionosphere and directing them onto ground locations.

WINDMILLS!

There have been a lot of complains about the sound from windmills causing distress.
Study suggests wind turbines' low-frequency noise could cause health woes


When it comes to wind farms, it may be the sound you can't hear that drives you to distraction, according to a report released this week...

The study of noise levels around the Shirley Wind Farm in Brown County detected largely inaudible, low-frequency sound inside three nearby houses. But researchers found that only in the home closest to the turbines could it be correlated with sound coming from outside the house, according to the report released Monday.

The study concluded that between the low-frequency sound and the nausea, dizziness, headaches, ear pressure and other maladies reported by neighbors "enough evidence and hypotheses have been given herein to classify (low-frequency noise) as a serious issue, possibly affecting the future of the industry."....

Two lawmakers and another group involved with the testing say the study could be groundbreaking.

"The report suggests that very low-frequency noise from wind turbines may cause motion sickness-like symptoms in some people," according to a statement...


Low-frequency Sound
From On Line Physics Lab


A sound's frequency is totally dependent on the motion of the source creating it -- that is, frequency is independent of the medium through which the sound travels....


This means it can change as it enters a different medium (Air, rock, dirt,...)



In general, low frequency waves travel further than high frequency waves because there is less energy transferred to the medium. Hence the use of low frequencies for fog horns....


It also means that at a distance the other sounds would not be heard just the low frequency sound.

The Canadian government will pay $60,000 for a contract study and search for the source of the noise. The engineering department of the University of Windsor was the winning bidder for the project. In addition to permanent noise monitoring stations, an expensive monitor that looks like a spider web will be employed. It costs a quarter million dollars.

Colin Novak, PHD. of the University of Windsor explains “It’s called a pictangular array…equipment that we can use to actually take a picture of the sound. It’s very similar to a thermal imaging.”

It’s Canadian cash to do the job, but an international cooperative effort to once and for all find where the hum is coming from.

It sounds promising that there is an actual study going on to find the source of the noise. Anyone hear any more about the research being done? The article was from January of 2013.

As others here have stated, these noises have been widely reported and recorded - there are heaps of YT vids for example. I live in the midlands of the UK and heard these noises only once, about a year ago. They were somewhere between a minor earthquake, thunder and grinding metal... bloody weird, loud, and seemingly to me coming from the sky - as for an explanation i'm totally stumped


If they happened regularly where i live, especially at night, it would totally twist my melons.
