Why isn’t my Hum report on the Map? The answer is:

Every single report must be checked by me personally. Moreover, the upload process is tedious, complicated, and time consuming – so much so that I usually do updates once every two months, sometimes more frequently, and in some cases less frequently. I work on the Map on a volunteer basis whenever I can.

If you see any problems or inconsistencies with the Map, please let me know so that I can deal with them.

    Gosh, I’ve reported the hum and filled out a lengthy report form several years ago and again a couple of years ago, and I’m still not in the data base or on the map! Perhaps i got lumped in with “Minneapolis” despite I’m in Plymouth, MN? Minnetonka and Maple Grove are also suburbs of the Twin Cities and they show as distinct/separate from Minneapolis. What am I doing wrong?

    • There are quite a few things that can go wrong. Do you recall if you added your address by zip code or by physical address? Please post back with either and I can search the raw database – where nothing ever gets deleted – to see what happened. If you are comfortable doing so, download the spreadsheet (I gave the link in a recent post) and search within Excel for it. Glen

        I don’t remember if it was zip or address. I spent close to an hour completing whatever it was I completed (the first time), and was in the throes of desperation at the time, so could have messed up. Over the the years I have come to detente with the hum, which is not to say I accept it. When it is loud, intrusive, and making me sick, I’m glad I’m widowed and only the dog can hear the language I use. I have been known to scream into a pillow so my neighbors don’t call the police….

        I appreciate your willingness to investigate – my zip is 55446-2636. I hesitate to put my address in the forum (not that I’m paranoid, just cautious), but if you don’t find my input, I can provide it. Please give me the spreadsheet link again –

    Dr. Glen ,
    Thank you for your efforts. I hope to see my dot on the map, I would be the only one in my area, which is weird given my theorey on the hum. I have brought this hum to others attention in this area, they never notice it until I said something.
