It appears the noise issue from St Francis is gone! Please thank their staff for being so prompt in resolving this matter.

Martin- not all noise is drowned out by vehicle noise. At the height of my property (on 3rd floor and 4th floor), the constant high pitched drone of the hospital is unsettling and distracting- particularly in the dead of night. I am glad that it does not affect you. I understand that the muffler/vehicle sounds are equally discomforting.

Mike is right about strangers at the door.
Related ideas: If it seems a threat or someone who appears to be drunk, wild, or in a medical emergency, call 911.

Scam-"pollster"-solicitor? Keep secure! Call police admin (847-866-5000 or if urgent 911); stall-talk through the door if you dare.

It pains a person who grew up in a town with mostly unlocked doors to have to say this, but the urban area is less safe. Evanston, as when I first arrived 1969, is still generally much better, but even so....

Neighbors:
All noise, industrial/hospital and airplane is drowned out by vehicle noise. The avoidable noise level and most disturbing, to me, is the increased popularity of custom loud mufflers and vehicles with no mufflers that frequent our neighborhood and the Ridge Expressway. Are vehicles with unmuffled engine noise ever cited in Evanston?

Karen - call police first; open door never. Especially someone who is pushing / running into door.

Strange experience. Scruffy looking black guy came up to our door, apparently ran into it. When I looked out my bedroom window, I saw him run down a couple of stairs and flop down.

I did not know what happened so I started to open the door and he heard the click (but there are two locks). He runs to the door again and sticks his face right up in the small window in the door.

I told him through the door that he needed to leave as I was calling the police. And I did. Then he left.

Maybe about 5'8" or 5'9". Black blue jacket and wearing a dark backpack that looked plastic or had a plastic cover.

Same guy who had been seen earlier this week?

Thanks for all of the updates. I will take note of the noise level later tonight once the traffic volumes go down but crossing my fingers that the filter replacement did the trick.

Here's another wrinkle for those following the St. Francis noise:

Alderman,
 
One of my guys also located one of the air intakes that have filters on them making a whistling noise. He changed the filters and the whistling is gone. Please let us know if that was the noise.

Just so you know St. Francis has responded and they are purchasing a decibel machine and are being extremely responsive. They are concerned and have listen to the tapes.

Wow that's amazing! Thanks so much, Chris. I took the recordings last night around 1 am and there was no traffic.

Re: St Francis sound pollution: That's amazing. 'Noise File 1 with filter' is what we hear in the 700 block of Dobson. Constant droning or whistle.

Here you go: Sam's original files, turned up so I could get a good run at it; each paired with a version with the HVAC rumble filtered out and another filter zeroing in on the offending tone (about 2276Hz for those keeping score at home). Feel free to pass links on to St Francis folks if it's helpful.

Chris,
Thank you for your help. I just sent the email and attached two files. The foreground noise is from the rooftop HVAC equipment at the hospital but there is a steady high pitched noise in the background that can be heard with volume turned up. I'm limited to what my phone is able to record but the noise is really apparent when heard by ear.

I just got the same ticket. And it was $95 or something like that. What is everyone doing about this?

Early review: signal strength measured at the house entrance approx 2x Comcast. Internet 3x as fast. Comcast Sports Net is no longer in HD :( . Price : almost identical after 2x surcharges for various channel packages . Technician was awesome. Bottom line: guess I'm glad I switched, not nearly the deal they advertise but still an improvement.

Perhaps more importantly, I can send it to the hospital.

Announcement Chris Granner is now with RCN!

Anyone know what they're doing in the Valli/Dempster Commons parking lot? It's full of movie/TV trailers, a row of dressing rooms, and so on.

I do have recordings but I think this site only allows image files to be uploaded.
