    Re: Snowed in

    Unfortunately vibration is the key issue relating to sleep and completely independent. I'm coping, with some difficulties. Long story short there is indeed little I can do largely because the phenomenon is barely recognised and there are no regulations concerning the matter. The National Helpline is an earnest couple doing remarkably well under the circumstances but honestly, woodland glade CDs aren't going to help me. I appear to be a real outlier on this one, as well - even people who hear the hum seem largely unaware of the vibration that causes it...

    Thing is once I start looking at moving there's a remorseless logic that says I have to move out of London and go rural, where there is less chance of having 21 aircon units in a light industrial park 10 mins walk away going 24/7 using the underground car park as a soundbox...(the culprits, imo) and that raises the issue of how I support myself plus vehicle (don't run a car, living here).

    I'm looking into possibilities.

    I still haven't found a capable detection and logging system capable of nailing down the source for that. I had a couple of requests for information as yet unanswered though, I'll chivvy them.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    The trouble is, even if we logged numbers and waved machines there are no regs to complain they are breaching. I think it would still be worth doing - heck, it would be a huge step to have some sort of objective evidence.

    Mind you at times when it gets bad it just amazes me no-one else can feel it and a seismograph would be sufficient. At times the whole house seems to jump and sway. As far as I can gather vibration from somewhere is interacting with the length of the property and setting up a standing wave, or waves. Given I counted 21 separate aircon units, if they re responsible that's a lot of wave generation at similar but not identical wavelengths with lots of opportunity for interference in the wave patterns, producing big peaks and troughs.
