Re: HUM_FORUM: Torrential rain stops hum in Scotland for two nights
Another possibility is that the military airplanes that transmit the powerful
VLF radio signals that cause us to perceive the Hum cannot fly
in the bad weather, or choose to reroute elsewhere.

Subject: HUM_FORUM: Torrential rain stops hum in Scotland for two nights
When dealing with the hum there seems to be some standard rules, and one of them, is that the hum will get affected by severe weather.
In Scotland recently we had really torrential rain weather for a few hours, even causing our satalite feed to the TV to fail as the clouds were so saturated that the signal could not get through from space, so the TV had heavy pixilisating and freezing of picture, till it eventually blacked out.
I always smile with happiness when this happens, as the hum cannot get through, and I am going to get at least one night totally free of the hum.
Now this raises the question that the hum must transfer via the atmosphere, and when the weather is bad through heavy rain, storms,etc, it just cannot get through.
