It appears possible solar activity might have some bearing for some
hearer's. It's not the "hum" but if we can correlate one thing with
another as far as those with unusual sensitivity we might be able to
get somewhere. If we could get some sort of break on the midnight to
dawn aspect the majority of hearer's report it would go a long way in
the investigation into the "what is it" realm.
If you decide to stick around (so many don't) your experience and
observations could be invaluable.

It seems to get worse at night, and that corresponds to
the 12am to 4am timeframe cited in the article. I live about a half
a block from what my brother tells me is a microwave tower and there
is also a water tower nearby owned by the city of Seattle and it has
antennas on it as well. Although I can't tell what kind of antennas,
I'm guessing they're not cellular antennas.
I might also add that I am a Technician-class Ham radio licensee, so
these kinds of things are familiar to me. I am just beginning the

here.Hi,I run a 'Hum' Helpline in U.K. :may I make a few general comments, hoping they may help you in some way.From my experience, I don't think MOST mystery hums will be microwaves, since this effect seems to have been around for quite a few years before cellphones came in....That is NOT to say that they could 'never' be,but at present I remain unconvinced that humans can hear microwaves, otherwise people would be reporting a cacophany, surely?Because we all live in a veritable FOG of communications.No-one knows for sure, naturally, and there may be many different phenomena that can trigger a noise in the ears.One thing I have found during my researches about LFN is that some drugs (medications) can make the hearing more sensitive.There may be other chemicals in the environment (e.g., types of pollution?food additives?Worth trying a 'de-tox'?! One writer here a fair while ago said he had done that, to good effect, I think he said....)that could do the same thing, so I try to alert people to this little-known effect, so they can check whether anything in their life may be having this effect, and making them hear sounds too acutely, when many others cannot detect a sound at all.That phenomenon of a chemical or chemicals making hearing too sensitive ,might answer why some people hear 'it' and many others do not.Worth considering.....(I think that is what happened to me.....medications made distant 'hum', or hums, seem very loud, unbearable to the point of despair quite often)But as I say, in my humble opinion, MOST mystery hums are likely to come from man-made installations, probably of a mechanical nature, such as pumps, air conditioning, or machines operating, as in factories.because low frequency noises travel much further than higher frequencies, people sensitive to this range hear the sounds, yet it is so often impossible to find the direction they are coming from.ThanksBest Wishes,R.M.,LFNS Helpline, England.
