Natural VLF Radio is a very low frequency spectrum of radio waves that are emitted by nature. This is a MUST for any children because they are absolutely excited when they get to hear the sounds that the Earth makes! In this day and age, we are often so separated from the Earth around us and anything we can do to reconnect with nature is fulfilling in many ways.

Normally, these Earth sounds are occurring all the time, but humans cannot hear them. When animals are running away from areas 1-2 days before an earthquake happens, that is what they are hearing that scares them off. Stephen McGreevy has been carrying the torch for the world of earth sounds for the last 25 years and has been open sourcing many of his designs for these receivers as well as documenting the sounds coming from the earth and atmosphere. This is very related to the Advanced Seismic Warning System work of Eric Dollard and it is no surprise that they both happen to be in Lone Pine, California!

You can hear some samples of these remarkable Earth sounds such as the whistlers here: https://archive.org/details/AuroralChorusIvMusicOfTheMagnetosphere

For more details on Stephen’s amazing journey with Natural VLF Radio – visit his homepage here – if you have experience with electronics, Stephen McGreevy has posted some diagrams of a few of his receives so go for it and build yourself a receiver to hear these Earth sounds yourself! http://auroralchorus.com
