Welcome to the Quietest Place on Earth? Depends on how you define quiet……

Welcome to the Quietest Place on Earth      (There are residents who do not agree with this article because they can hear the noise pollution from the Power line communication/TWAC which is turned on, on the AMI Smart Grid infrastructure. We saw digital meters in Green Bank.  Why were they there? The utility may not be utilizing wireless in Green Bank, but they are managing two way communication through RF over the power lines WIRED.  I personally took a road trip to Green Bank to investigate how quiet it has claimed to be and we found the noise to be present there as well.  So to be respectful to those who are electro hypersensitive, there may be lower radiation due to the non presence of wireless, but dirty electricity and noise although lower levels is still present. Because the nature of the noise is acoustic as well as electromagnetic you don’t have to be electro hypersensitive to hear the noise.  This is a misrepresentation to pigeon hole everyone into the category of being electro hypersensitive because you are hearing the noise radiating on the power lines.  The audible tones are within human hearing range and is not being created inside your head.  We are able to measure and record the tones on mechanical recording devices.  If this was microwave induced hearing, we would not be able to measure this with a manmade instrument…….Sandaura)
