All I know is that it's USAF, it rotates, and it's mostly responsible for ATC.
Oh, and it's more like 46 miles...I checked the distance on Google. I
really doubt it's this...
Added mystery clue: We just found out that the annoying crackle is mostly
(if not always) absent after midnight.
I was wondering if this could be some of the EMI/RFI generated by the new
breed of solid-state watt/hour power meters we've heard about; they seem to
have a potential for RFI @ 2 meters, but nothing heard about 440.

If there's a utility that shuts down after midnight, then the power meter
wouldn't be engaged...and no RFI...hmmmm.
