This morning I took a phone call from somebody with serious academic credentials who is taking an extended stay in the Puerto Vallarta area of Mexico. I asked him/her a number of probing questions, first establishing the s/he was hearing the Worldwide Hum in western Canada. I was told that the Hum was non-existent where s/he was staying in Mexico. I asked the usual questions about sources of night-time noise, and so on, and I am now taking this report quite seriously. I know that roughly 1.5 million people from the United States and Canada visit the Puerto Vallarta region every year. Surely there are a good number of Hum hearers among them. (Please keep in mind that air travel typically disrupts the Hum for three or four days). I am very much looking forward to hearing from readers of this blog who travel to this region and report on their findings. If this area is indeed a Quiet Zone, then this would be a big discovery, and might change the direction of research, or at least open up new lines for it.
Is there a quiet zone near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico?
