Re: Heard in Utah
Now,upon thinking about sound sand makes at dunes, I doubt that it would travel hundreds of miles. The Hum is more steady and also, comparing it to a diesel truck engine idling is a bit off the mark. It is a smooth low slow deep tone that oscillates just a little at less than 10 hertz more or less. It's also hard to believe it's in my ears. By the way, I am camping out in the quiet country when I noticed it.

It's difficult to remember where but I think for sure in Moab a few weeks ago. I don't think it lasted for hours;more like minutes because I would forget about it as I concentrated on reading on the web or whatever.
> It reminded me of the deep hum at sand dunes. I was at the Kelso train depot in the Mohave Preserve below Baker,ca. The dunes are nearby. The exhibit inside the museum had a recording of the very low and deep hum that sand makes when the wind pushes the sand down the slopes. I know this hum is heard worldwide but the thought occurred to me that the wind currents might carry the sound to other areas. Possible?
> The Moab area has lots of soft desert sand and , of course, Death Valley.
This hum can be heard by one person and no one else in the area hears it. I believe that what is causing the hum can make a person lose concentration though.
The hum I hear is 24 hours a day and seven days a week, almost seven years now and it's not tinnitus or acoustic sound of any sort.
The hum I hear ruins my natural experiences that I always loved.
