I have high tension lines running literally over the corner of my property, 
less than 100 feet from my tower. I survive! What I find is I get much more 
trouble from low tension stuff on my street than I do from the 115KV lines. The 
power company pays really close attention to the big stuff - not so much to the 
lower voltages.

In my case the lines are on 60' poles. I have heard horror stories from others 
who are near HT lines on metal towers. Apparently the metal towers rust and 
corrode and become radiating monsters....

So one more data point - it can be done.
