[TowerTalk] Proximity to power lines

I'm looking for land in the Tampa Bay area and have hit upon  a 30 acre 
parcel very nicely priced.  However, scanning the area with  Google Map I found 
a BIG power line running east to west to the north of  the property by 
about 2500-3000 feet at the closest point.  Of course this  is the worst 
direction for contesting.  It appears, judging from the size  of the 
line towers, to be maybe a around a 100 KV  run.
Any thoughts on this line being as close as it is?  Any first  hand 
experience with lines this close?  I  intend to check out the  property first 
when I hit the mainland, but I value members' of this  reflectors opinions.  
I want to be able to hear signals not  RFI.
