[UPDATE: see later in the thread where I've identified the sound. But I still have ear pressure from the router]
First, I have checked the helpful post, "Sound Samples for Radiation Sources" by Arctic Coast and Merializer, but could not find this sound on there.
My landlady just had her Verizon FIOS service "upgraded" and they gave her a new modem and possibly did some other wiring work outside. Prior to this I was comfortable in my upstairs apartment where at least the bedroom registered low on my Acousticom2 and I could sleep The kitchen was on the side of the house closer to where she has her modem and TV so that registers higher but doesn't bother me.
Now with this upgrade, I've got problems. I can feel a sensation in my ears now that I've had before in an apartment that was so EMF-hot that I had to move out after a month. The EMF signals are more intrusive into the bedroom now. She has agreed to turn off the modem at night but there is still a signal that I can hear on my Acousticom that wasn't there before. I don't know how to record and post a sound sample, but it's almost like the sound of a train passing by as the wheels go over a section of track, a "clacka clack clacka clack" pattern like that of train wheels. I go all through the house and can't tell where it's coming from. You can't really hear it when you get close to the modem because her entire kitchen/dining area is hot with the modem/TV/cordless phone and other noisy items. But when you move away into the other rooms, the clacka clack sound is prominent throughout and as I mentioned, it wasn't there before this upgrade.
Folks, I'm losing my mind over this stuff. After I moved out of that other apartment two years ago I slept in my van for 6 months because I was too stressed to look for another apartment. I've got this one only because it's a friend renting to me and she is sensitive to my problem and is willing to accommodate me.
Update: I haven't identified the clacka clack sound but did find out something else...
After the update to Verizon FIOS 2 days ago, the landline phones haven't worked. A technician came today and I asked him about what was installed here and about the sound.
He told me the new router/modem that was installed is emitting both 2.4Ghz AND 5Ghz. He showed me a website URL and password on back of the modem where I could turn off the 5Ghz.
The landlady wasn't home but I knew she wouldn't mind so I went right online and turnedit off.
The sensation in my ears has diminished a bit.
However the clacking sound is still throughout the house so I don't know what's causing that. And it is still causing an increased reading in my bedroom where I previously had the bed (I moved it over to a corner where it's slightly less)
Thanks for the response. That's not it. I don't have a bluetooth unit and the function on my android phone for bluetooth is turned off. My landlord doesn't have it that I know of but the sound is still there even when she's not home and has her cell phone with her. I'll have to see if I can figure out how to upload a video.
Note that the router isn't transmitting "5G" as used in the smart phone world, but rather 5 gigahertz (5Ghz) wi-fi. Many people seem to confuse the two. 5Ghz wi-fi has been in use for a long time now, while "5G" has not.
I've already walked around on the main floor. The modem/TV/landlord's laptop is in an alcove off the kitchen on the north side of the house. That whole area is very "hot" with frequencies. The kitchen also has a cordless phone which spikes the Acousticom meter. Once you walk out of the kitchen into the living room you get away from all the louder kitchen frequencies and that's where you begin to hear the "clacka clack" sound continuing to the south end of the house. My bedroom is above that, also on the south end. I can hear the sound both on the main floor and on my bedroom on the second floor.
Hmmm... the pattern of the "clack" I hear is a little different from the one on the video. , don't know if that makes a difference. Yet I still hear the sound when I unplug my landlord's router. The sound didn't begin until Verizon came in and changed her service 4 days ago. I hear it once I get away from the hot zone in the alcove next to her kitchen where the router,TV and phone is, and into the south side of the house. The neighboring house on the south side has been unoccupied for almost a year. I dug out my video camera and will attempt to get a video uploaded to Youtube. Thanks to everyone who has replied so far...
Oh, and I'm still feeling the uncomfortable sensation in my ears, the same one that caused me to leave an apartment two years ago after only a month. I've been in my current place for two years and have only started feeling this sensation over the last 4 days since Verizon was here.
I have it set to Private so please don't share the link with anyone except to help me identify the sound. Thanks.
Other things I didn't mention in the video - I walked around the outside of the house with the Acousticom and did not hear the clacking sound. It seems to be confined to inside the house. Downstairs in between the kitchen and living room is the front door and next to the front door is a security alarm terminal and the windows downstairs are all alarmed... but as mentioned I've lived here 2 years with no issues relating to wifi or EMF exposure. Also the neighboring house on the south side has been unoccupied for nearly a year.
The ear pressure I have only felt in the last four days since Verizon was here, and it is very distressing because I moved out of an apartment 2 years ago because of the same symptoms.
I couldn't pinpoint the one that sounds like what your meter is picking up. My daughter has Centurylink Internet and Prism TV using CL's modem set to a wireless broadcast. I was actually OK with it on while I stayed with her. I have an HF35C and the wireless
signal was very low powered. She moved and Centurylink gave her a new modem and she says that the signal was so powerful that she could feel it so she called CL and they were able to turn it back down..
This morning I showed her the meter and how the clacking sound was on the living room side of the house. I had previously checked near the Roomba and it does put out a strong signal. I asked her to move it to the kitchen and the clacking sound stopped in the living room!
The Roomba works off her phone app. The weird thing is, she's had it since Christmas and I didn't notice anything. The signal in my bedroom where I previously had the bed is back down to around where it used to be.
However... when I plug the router back in I still feel the ear pressure. Maybe as Fogtop suggesting we can call Verizon and have them turn the signal down, or maybe I can figure out how to do it from the website as an earlier poster suggested.
