Good point. I was thinking purely in terms of mechanical oscillation, not the pulse each blade makes as it cuts through the air.

You can make physics say anything is possible if you leave out the right bits from your theoretical system.

yes but at only one frequency, if it is a 12 blade it will amplify like crazy at 5 frequencies. think of it this way, a 12 blade fan has 6 2 blade fans, 3 4 blade fans, 4 3 blade fans and 2 6 blade fane buried inside of it, each of these produces its own amplified noise frequencies.
