I've read quite a bit about this, and screwed around with synths and tone generators pumping out noise around that frequency and can confirm that it puts you on edge without really knowing why. It is my favourite theory for explaining various reported "ghostly" phenomena. There are a few tourist attractions I would love to explore in my home town with the right equipment.

It also rather neatly explains a lot of religious experience. Large church organs generate a LOT of sound at that frequency. Couple that with an impressive building with a lot of echo and claim it's the house of God, and it is not surprising people claim to feel the "presence" of the almighty.
