I am not far from what GA Power calls an overland feeder line.  I was told 
by the RFI expert
at GA Power 25 years ago that such a line probably will not affect the bands 
above 5 Mhz.

My experience bears this out as the only place I have a real problem is 160 
where its a steady S6
day or night.  When its cold and dry (winter) it can peak at S8 to 9.   20 
meters is mostly affected by
regular power lines, door bell buzzers, small motors, and bad street lights.
