345KV - wet wx = corona; dry wx = hardware - but most bad hardware goes poof at
these voltages so it has to be fixed. Most lines of this voltage not bad when
dry - I have a 250+KV line 2 miles away - no problem.
15KV - wet wx = usually quiet; dry wx = usually hardware issues; noise has many
signatures; may even be light sensitive. These are the lines I have problems
