I'd stay away from a site like that strictly for the possible effect(s) the magnetic field around those lines might have upon my HEALTH, never mind its effect on my radio activities...!
Some 30 years ago I recall reading a byline in NEWSWEEK magazine where researches noted that the scrub & bushes growing out in the middle of the mid-Western USA that were directly beneath long expanses of overhead utility lines were noticeably smaller, & less-robust looking, than growth outside of the immediate field...then about a decade or two after that piece, I saw a TV feature that described what appeared to be a connection between overhead lines & childhood leukemia.
Yes, the jury may well still be out on any sort of a direct link(s), but why take chances that way, if you really don't have to...?
