I work for a large wireless service provider. My particular job is Tier3 support of our LTE network (and our 5G network trials). A few years ago we encountered a phenomenon where many thousands of cell users would continuously drop voice calls and data bearers would continuously drop and re-attach. After an hour of a massive influx of trouble tickets, we discovered that there was a huge 'Radio Frequency Cloud' moving up from Mexico and South America into the Southeastern USA. This was apparently causing the issue. How do these 'RF Clouds' form and move as an entity?

This subject of missing ships and aircraft really make you think, and I know that my first time through was eerie as heck. The strangest thing I ever came upon out there and followed it for 3 days until the Coast Guard could get there was a sail boat with its masts strung and when the Coast Guard arrived there was no one on board. We took it sort of jokingly but I know everyone felt a bit strange during that trip and the return back through.
I was stationed onboard a US Naval vessel at the time of my multiple journeys through the triangle and the first couple times made you feel like, "what if something happens" but after that it was just another trip through the area for us, and I spent a lot of time there over a couple years.
I do know the currents there can get bad, and there are a lot of very shoal areas, one I believe was called the devils tongue, where there is a huge sand bar that goes out for miles that you could actually walk on that is under the water. Also I have seen tons of very large sharks, one that had to be near 30' or longer, I have seen Man-of-war floating out there that were the size of a mid size car. I can't explain air craft downing but I do believe a ship could easily be lost at sea in these areas especially back before GPS it would be easy to end up on a shoal, and for like sail boats with the deep keel it could easily tip over and be lost.
What ever it is it is strange. As for aircraft, most before GPS navigation would have to fly by sight, and one thing that is very common in the triangle and areas around there are bioluminescence. I wonder if in fog or storm, these aircraft may have seen it hitting the edges of these underwater shoals and lighting up making them believe they were at a different spot than they thought they were.
Of all the different theories I have seen on the triangle I can say this, I have never seen anything outside of that one sail boat that was creepy. I know they have a lot of fog in the area, they have a lot of weird currents, they have freak waves, and yes I have seen some HUGE waves out there out of no where, we are talking over 50 foot waves.
There is a lot of potential electrical problems with the electrical storms which from the surface of the ocean at least, are amazing and beautiful at the same time, and then you have the amazing sea life in abundance with the warm waters. So what the mystery is who knows, but I do believe what is natural phenomena in the area is the cause of these disappearances.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has shown that only 5% of the ocean has been discovered leaving 95% unexplored. Many deep ocean trenches are found all over the sea including devil's triangle. Since sonar mapping was invented many ships have detected that much of the Bermuda triangles ocean floor uneven. When entering the area much of the border of the triangle is surrounded with reefs that reach the surface. If a ship was to hit one of these reefs it could cause the ship to sink in the deep ocean trenches. Along with the reefs planes could have their engine fail from methane gas also causing it to fall in the trenches. Since these trenches are so deep many haven't been explored meaning that it is possible that these ships and planes did crash without being recovered due to the unexplored trenches.

I believe I have discovered what is causing the issues related to the Bermuda Triangle, and Dragon's Triangle? It's the MAGNETIC STRIPES ALIGNMENT PROCESS of the Sea Floor Spreading. It's causing the planes instrumentation to fail as there is a sudden outburst of (unusual) anomalous magnetic field being projected beyond the sea surface when the cooling happens and the magnetic alignment locks into its final position.
We have been told time and again that there is nothing going on there, and yet, so much has happened in regards to planes and ships going missing unexpectedly, even on the calmest of days on the ocean, that it has been a mystery for decades and decades.
On Wikipedia, they cite as evidence the fact that even Loyds of London doesn't require an insurance premium for ships and planes planning to travel here. Okay, fine, sure that's understandable. Except the part where they state that no more ships or planes are going missing there than in other parts of the world, upon the ocean. Well, if they're not, then how did triangles gain so much notoriety?
There's Bermuda Triangle, and then there's the Dragon's Triangle, as well as others, but those are two locations which are infamous for their mysterious ship/plane losses. What is failed to be mentioned by those citing is the fact that of the disappearances which have happened, there has been quite the number which have disappeared upon calm seas/waters, and without any real explanation forthcoming.
With all the Triangles in the world, and the obvious magnetic anomalies which would be the result of the sea floor solidifying its alignment, as it spreads/cools... perhaps the reason why the numbers are pretty close to the same is because we're losing a lot more ships/planes to magnetic field outburst (for lack of a better word) events which might in essence be sending out a magnetic like pulse, or similarly a sonar like magnetic resonance ping the moment of their alignment/cooling. This could work very much like an EMF pulse which would destroy a ship's navigational equipment, the electrical equipment related to engines, etc. Without these things they'd be dead in the water and could easily be lost due to a myriad of reasons.

I personally think that there is a World in the Oceans that is unknown to man. First of all only less than 5% of the Ocean has been explored and the remaining 95% remains unexplored, this means that some of the so called "mythical sea creatures" (mermaids) might not be real after all and here's why!. Almost every land creature living or extinct has a replica in the ocean , e.g. Sea Lion, Sea Elephant, Sea Horses etc: So to me Mermaids are the replicas of us human beings in the oceans because they resemble us. So the disappearance of the Bermuda's Triangle will only be solved when we fully explore and understand the Oceans.....

Thanks for the updates- one of the creepiest books I read in the 70's was Richard Winners "The Devils Triangle" and this part of the Atlantic has always been fascinating. I guess what I don't understand given today's technology is how ships and planes are not fitted with Lo-Jack technology. If my car is stolen, the police will be able to pinpoint it's location in minutes- how is it possible, as in the Malaysian Flight that disappeared a few years ago, that commercial shipping and aircraft do not have the same locator technology? I would be most interested to hear anyone's explanation for this. Thank you very much.

Methane bubbles probably affect buoyancy to varying degrees, while there is more to consider regarding the methane budget. Most of it is in storage. Primarily, the cause of many phenomena there involves the outgassing of methane "ice" (clathrates) from the sea floor.
As you know, another name for much of the area is the "Sargasso Sea" due to thick mats and subsurface extents of sargasso seaweed (algae). Over millions of years, dead algal deposits accumulate and are buried along the continental shelf at varying depths. In this environment, plant material decomposes anaerobically (without oxygen).
The microbial anaerobes produce methane within the sedimentary deposits. Given the conditions of pressure and temperature there, water molecules arrange in a cage (Latin: clathrate) surrounding methane molecules. This results in a crystalline lattice of methane-water ice, stable in the submarine subsurface environment. Such deposits are also found below land surface in the Arctic permafrost.
When conditions occur that disturb this methane ice (seismicity, warming, turbidity flows), the water cage decomposes rapidly, while the natural gas explosively sublimates. Into lower pressure areas the expanding methane essentially explodes toward the surface. Given some source of ignition though, a chemical explosion would occur where enough oxygen is present.

Watched a documentary on Bermuda triangle few days ago, seamed there are lots of lightning strikes in the area. What if massive lightning that strikes the sea/gulf stream brought massive amount of electrons that could not dissipate immediately. You have the gulf stream moving at 5 knots northwards, slow, but as a whole the pool of water could still constitute a massive charge. Can we apply the Right Hand Rule, i.e. a magnetic field generated? If so, the magnetic field and force could possibly be strong enough to wrack havoc.
Ok I have a theory. It's a little out there but here me out. Ok our government is very secretive and look at all of the things that have disappeared, almost 80 percent of them were either military ships or military aircraft. most people overlook that fact or say that it is coincidence but I think differently. Look at all of the things that our government hides from us, like for instance Area 51. There are many theories about it but no civilian has ever entered the facility. I believe that the government knows more about the Bermuda triangle than they tell us. It could be many things. It could be a worm hole or a portal. It could be a place where an alien race has settled or it could be a secret military base under or above water that contains things that could either cause panic or chaos in everyday life. The fact that all devices go crazy could be something as simple as a magnetic cloaking device to help conceal whatever is hidden. Call me crazy but think about it. The government gets away with anything even killing people. What makes you think they won't kill to protect something that secretive and important to them. What if they have made contact with another race?
What if they found some type of ancient portal. They have found pieces of the ancient city of Atlantis near the Bermuda triangle. I think the theories of the Sargasso sea and the electronic fog and the methane pockets are all cover ups framed by the government. I know this all sounds pretty off the wall but it's just a thought from myself after years of research. The only way to truly find out is a very simple answer involving a little hi tech technology. Build a vessel such as a boat with cameras, microphones and recording devices and send the ship into the triangle while anchoring it to a secondary vessel strong enough to pull the venturing vessel back to its original starting location. It may not work but it's worth a shot. Now if an average C student can come up with ideas like this how come our government and the scientist who work for our government haven't tried this or thought of it? That is something for you to think about. Well that's about all I have for now, if I get any other ideas, facts or thoughts on the great mystery of The Bermuda Triangle, I will be sure to post but until then thank you for your time and thank you for reading my article.
