Help identify the hum in Alberta; unanswered questions need to be answered

There continue to be unanswered questions about the hum, or hums, that are disturbing people throughout Alberta.

The hum recorded and analyzed in Ranchlands, Calgary was in the 40 Hz range.  Similarly, the hum in Edmonton seems to vary between 37 - 40 Hz.  For those familiar with a piano, the hum is similar in pitch to D1 - D#1 on the instrument.

What does this mean?  We don't know.  Usually, a hum at that frequency is caused by something man-made.  Likely, we are looking for a mechanical cause, or one that is similar.  But, with our limited resources it's a difficult task to try to track down the cause, or causes, of the hum.

It is interesting to note that many of the people who have spoken with our team noticed the hum starting in mid-2008.  What is it that began, in Alberta, around that time, that could cause a hum of this nature to be heard in numerous locations in the province?  

We would like to ask those of you following this blog to please pass along the link to our site to as many people as you can, including your city counsel, MLAs and MPs.  Despite six years of sharing information, recordings and data, government bodies have been unwilling to engage in locating the source(s) of the hum.  Perhaps a grassroots movement could help garner the active support needed?

Until we know what is causing a hum to be heard in Alberta, there continues to be unanswered questions about the risks to peoples' health.  Those who are bothered by the hum have a greatly reduced quality of life due to sleep disruptions and the inability to relax.  Yet, how do we know that the hum isn't affecting those who do not hear it?  Identifying the source of the hum(s) is essential to answering that question.  

This team has proven that a hum exists in Alberta.  It's been recorded and analyzed by sound professionals with stellar reputations.  People need to know what it is, where it's coming from, and how it's affecting Albertans.  Please help make this request for assistance to answer these questions too big  for our politicians and citizens to ignore. 

We appreciate the continued support of our readers and followers.  Thank you.
