7149Re: HUM_FORUM: Re: Researcher asks: Anybody try to screen off the Hum with Faraday cage?
- Oct 2, 2006Patty, you are so right - this posting by Jaxz has made my heart sing - I have, personally, absolutely removed any idea that this "hum" is internal in any way. I don't, or can't, give any credence to anyone who implies that it is. So, to get this note from Jaxz - well, yes - it is encouraging.
