I know it's been postulated and theorised many times, but is there any actual scientific data indicating that some humans can, by their very presence, interfere with radio transmission?
The reason I ask is that we used to use a video sender that would never work properly if my wife was near, and today I've had terrible trouble with a wireless remote repeater, which transmits IR wirelessly, which disappeared as soon as she went out.
She doesn't carry any sort of electrical gear.
Sounds far fetched I know, but I can only tell it as I saw it!
has frequency. The electrical frequency of the human body is between 62 to 68 Hz during daylight hours, but this changes when we're ill. The degree of change depends on the type and severity of the illness.
There's been a good deal of research into the subject, and a fair amount of disagreement amongst scientists, but it's an accepted fact that a human body can indeed affect some devices. Grab hold of one end of a radio aerial, for instance, and you'll see how your body alters the signal strength - you'll act as an extension of the antenna.
"static electricity shock if they touch a car's bodywork." I used to have a Citroen BX which had a lot of plastic body panels on it, everytime I closed the door,it arced enough charge to weld two ships plates together... I sold it when I became too paranoid about closing the door and getting my electric shock!
