More Hydro Hummin' Blues
This is the ideal connection to a house, with a slack line. That way, there is no chance of wind and transformer vibrations penetrating into the house. However, in older parts of town, there are old direct connections to the external wall. If the line is tight, you get all the hum right into the house. I'm getting some mail that the power companies won't touch this with their ten-foot pole. Yeah, why should they bother? The only solution is to whip up a political storm, or move out of the house. I would hope some technical college could take this issue up, and make enough measurements to shame the power companies.
