I had a guy wire on a power pole which was very close to the support cable for the cable TV. Not sure what the power company may have had attached to the guy wire, as a possible ground, or.... Anyway, every time the wind was easterly, it pushed the pole just enough to arc between those two and I had terrible noise.

I was running around with a little AM radio and gave that guy wire a shaking and discovered that is what it was. As it swayed it arced. Power company put a big rubber wrap around insulator on it and I had no problem after that.

Interesting that everything in the neighborhood radiated that noise. Fences, lines, guys. For several blocks around, when the source was in front of my house.
