We have applied a very strict filter to our entire database (thanks to Henrik).

[In Henrik’s words: I stumbled over http://www.thehum.info by pure chance (March 2016), and took an interest in it mainly because I thought I spotted some shortcomings in the methodology, and partly because the then prevailing theories about VLF/ELF/RF and the power grid were close to my own competency area and experience. I am a retired electrical and telecommunications engineer (M.Sc.E.E.), who has spent 25 years with Nokia in R&D and sales support, and another 20 years as Chief Engineer and CTO for a number of smaller Asian telecommunication operator. Due to a quadruple heart bypass over 20 years ago, while living in a developing country, I also had to take more responsibility for my own health, and had to read up on various subjects in that field as well. I therefore have taken the liberty to cook up some hypotheses related to medicines, nutrition, metabolic and hormonal aspects and environmental chemicals. These, of course, need to be scrutinized by experts in the respective fields. Being a non-hum-sufferer, I have mainly focused on methodology and analysis and staying within the boundaries of known laws of physics, in addition to correcting misunderstandings concerning radio waves and electromagnetic fields, which at one point were key suspects in the project.]

We are now left with just over 3000 very high-quality data and map points, and we can now answer more definitively some of the questions that people have been asking about the Hum for decades. I will be releasing the full database in MySQL format, as well as the data filtering criteria over the next few days.

    Thank you for the report, and for this page. I strongly suspect that the hum that is audible both in the center line of the state of Michigan, as well as north of the Detroit area, is the result of transmission lines, namely the compressors that regulate the movement of product in the pipelines. The sound has a varied volume level and a slight change in frequency or resonance. These changes in audible volume level, and resonance are presumed to be the result of the number of compressors running or pressure required at a particular time to move product. Some have suggested that the new smart meter / smart grid is the cause, however I am doubtful. Thanks again!!

    There seems to be a problem now that Google have decided that “All Google Fusion Tables data (eg. data you uploaded to tables) will be systematically deleted from Google servers.” starting on 03 Dec 19. This has had an effect on Google Maps, it would appear – at least on my Apple MacBook.

  3. Glen and scientists in residence, thanks for carrying this torch. I eagerly await all new messages. 2020 sounds special. I hope that in the year 2020 some societal stakeholders will be finally willing to play their part in finding a solution regarding the worldwide Hum.

    I live in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have been hearing a faint noise at night for several years like a car idling in the distance. Over the last two nights its like the noise has moved inside my head. It is a low frequency hum and vibration. Interestingly they have just upgraded to 5G here. I suspect it is coming from cell phone towers.

    Referring to hum inside the head, I’d like to give some info, may be helpfull or
    stimulate the effort to understand this phenomena.
    Some drugs if taken for a long time or in high dose known as ototoxic can cause tinnitus in both ears.
    Acetylsalicylic, anti-inflammatory molecule indometacin, diuretics molecule furosemid and etacrinic acid, antibiotics group of aminoglycoside.
    Tinnitus, Claussen Claus Frenz, Current therapy, 2008
    La nuova audiometrie, 2, 1986 4-8 ( A.Procaccini, G.Govoni,V.Cavalca,A.Caroggio )

    Strong emotions in high sensitive persons.
    This condition can cause hum in the head during the night, should last a limited period of time.
    Microwaves have a narrow field of side propagation through the air, therefore should be investigated the devices receiving this frequency.
    Basically I think that hum hits mainly over the average sensitive persons.

      Thank you, Max, for this information. Actually, the list of ototoxic antibiotics is much longer: Aminoglycosides, Quinolones, Glycopeptides, Macrolides, Polypeptides, Tetracyclines, and under “others” Chloramphenicol (Wikipedia). That is why we added the questions about antibiotics when the questionnaire was updated. However, the replies in the “blue map” so far do not indicate that antibiotics would be a significant factor for the Hum. Their main ototoxic effect is, as you say, hearing loss and Tinnitus.

      Microwave and radio transmissions as real-time causes for the Hum have been basically discarded as a hypothesis, because it would imply that there would exist “hot zones” in the immediate vicinity of radio stations and cell towers, where more or less everybody would hear the Hum. Such hot spots do not exist.

    My experience with the hum goes back about six years when living in the city in an area of rapid development and cell towers suddenly going up in the area – I then moved back to a small town I had spent many years in – it was there as well but not a constant – sold my house & moved onto the main street level with farmers fields and facing the north mountain…. potentially significant due to large towers assisting our use of wifi here – there is also a tower above the town and smaller ones close by. This is a university town and a university that is computer dominated yet I can be in a local cafe surrounded by students with computers & no impact.
    I am sensitive both in feeling and in hearing – I have had ringing in my ears on occasion but to say this is the hum is insulting to people who suffer from the Hum – the Hum is outside of my body and it is serious ly upsetting & damaging to health – because some of us feel it &/or hear it does not mean that the rest of the population are not effected by it.
    That said the following is what I have experienced – I was hearing the hum fairly consistantly in my house & at night in particular. I woke in the middle of one night my hole body shaking as if it were an epileptic seizure – i got myself on my feet and it stopped but the hum was loud – i wanted to know if it was coming from outside – I opened ghe door to my deck and the sound was much higher / stronger outdoors than inside – I opened & closed it a few times and it was the same – that being stronger outside. It is the same where i am now. As it comes in through my closed window it does so within a certain width and direction – for example it was really loud one morning but I noticed as I crossed fom one end of the windows to the other (about six feet width) my hands up to feel the energy more distinctly : I could feel a distinct starting point – something i had never tried or thought of before. It went back and forth and was exactly the same each time – when i walked into it’s ‘range’ it was stronger than when i stepped out of it – this was amazing to me and it was ghe first ‘evidence’ (to me at least) that it had a limit … which again suggests to me that this is an EMf issue. There are areas you can still go that are quiet & they even have phones – I am looking for a place that will not have these towers – where I am off grid & living in nature with the coyotes and bears : )
    I almost forgot – this may help some people – it is a large part of my saving grace right now
    – of all the doctors who accept the Hum as a real health issue there was one who has helped me so much – i had already discovered that putting my hands over my ears with the part towards the back of the ears pushed on (hard to describe but you will get it if you play with it) I could hear my blood surging through my veins – i wasn’t even ghinking of the hum – i was in awe of hearing this – my blood consistently travelling all through my body in minutes – amazing feeling & sense of connection! Then weeks later I ran across what this one doctor said – his take on the emf frequencies was that they were offsetting the body’s natural frequency – he felt this was the main cause of people getting sick with too much emf exposure. Our natural frequency keeps everything going along properly / I had simply found a reset to my own frequency.
    I’d love to hear feedback from anyone who tries this! I’ve also woken up in the night & found i wasn’t breathing – when i put my hands on my ears so as to hear my blood cursing through the first thing ghat happens automatically is a deep breath!

      I found two pieces of factual observations from your long posting:

      1) You say that you have no problems in an area filled by WiFi signals. Since the WiFi signal is hundreds of times stronger that that of any cell tower, you have thereby proven that you are not affected by cell towers or EMF, except in your imagination.

      2) You found a spot in your room, where the Hum was definitely strongest. What you experienced was an audio room resonance. That can only be caused by an external man-made low-frequent audio noise, often carried through the building structure and/or through the ground, sometimes from very far away. It has nothing to do with any EMF.

      If you want to identify the hum that causes the room resonance, please first identify the frequency of the hum and its possible periodicity. Please refer to the instructions on the home page.

      ‘The body’s natural frequency’ is paranormal quackery.

      To me it sounds like you may suffer both from an internal Hum and another external Hum.
