Ken says he hears them even when Single Op as in ARRL 160.

Ken's five towers are in a rough square 200' on a side and the square is
aligned with the sides N/S and E/W.  This beverage runs from a point about
one-third from the SW corner NE to a point outside the square on the NE
corner.  It is never closer than 60' to any tower, but there are lots of
radial, hardlines, and misc. wires withing a few feet at various points.

Each transformer is built on a stack of five FB73-801 beads with 2-5 turns
of # 26 enamal per winding.
