A few weeks ago I started hearing a small cheeping or beeping sound around the house. I tried tracking it down but to no avail. It was not happening on a predictable interval and was very small. Then on our trip to Colorado I start hearing it again.
We tried tracking it down in the condo, and on the car ride home. We determined that it was indeed something that I had on me. I turned my cell phone off, but still it beeped. I have no pacemaker or other battery operated things in me so that was out. I separated my phone and my camera to different parts of the car, but still it eluded us. Then I had a thought. Bingo, I had it!I have a pocket knife with an electronic clock in it. The clock has not worked in years, so I forgot about it, but sometime recently the alarm clock had been turned on inadvertently, and it was going off whenever its poor dying battery could get up enough juice. I removed the battery and the phantom went away.
