I haven't done exactly what you are recommending, but I know at my QTH
the AC lines are rather noisy, mostly from the computer. I had a six
meter ground plane on the roof near my swamp cooler and it picked up all
kinds of trash from the AC feed.
The problem with doing it is you'll never know... one day you'll be
listening for some rare DX and not quite hearing it, and you'll wonder.
Best to avoid it completely.
