I seriously doubt they can hear it. If they could, we could hear the powerlines at 60 cycles. And consider the amount of power going through those."Jim Creek achieves its worldwide range by transmitting a very powerful, very low frequency (VLF) signal, one with a wavelength of approximately seven miles and a frequency of only 24.8 KHz."
That power and frequency is very alarming to wildlife in the ocean and proves the claims it harmed thousands of dolphins, is absolutely true! This frequency range is dead center in the dolphins normal hearing bandwidth which extends to 50Khz. Obviously we need to communicate but don't pretend it didn't have consequences.
PS: Your dog can hear to 45 Khz. Wonder how they behave around that transmitter site? This transmitter is essentially a high powered, modulated dog whistle.
