Transmission Line Noise

The chimes at midnight

Sun, Dec 20, 2009

I live approx­i­mately three miles from the cen­tre of Not­ting­ham and usu­ally can­not hear the bell chim­ing the hour in the town hall in the cen­tre of the city. How­ever today, with it being clar cold and frosty it is easy to hear. I sup­pose also the ambi­ent noise is lees as it’s sun­day and the fac­to­ries and traf­fic are less.

Usu­ally the only other time this occurs is in the sum­mer, in late evenings when it the air is clear and still.
