I think what Hemingson meant to say instead of "...but with what you can’t hear due to infrasounds under 20 megahertz." was under 20 Hertz. 20 Megahertz is a radio frequency inaudible to everyone. 20 Hertz is a low frequency audio hum. A factor of one million makes all the difference. 20 MHz is shortwave radio, 20 Hz is sound.
