The How of Wow: The mysterious Ranchlands Hum


Have you ever looked at something and asked, “How did they do that?” CKUA’s newest feature, “The How of Wow,” highlights marvels of innovation and technology that are all around us. The stuff Engineers and Geoscientists create can be beautiful, sometimes even iconic, but it has to work.

Ah, the sound of music. And when you don’t know the lyrics, why not just hum along? It’s supposed to be a joyful thing, chiming in with a melody, but what of a hum that becomes like a constantly dripping tap.

Such is the case with the mysterious Ranchlands Hum in Calgary. Dr. Mike Smith is an electrical and computer engineer at the University of Calgary. He started investigating the mysterious Ranchlands Hum over six years ago.
