    I have a noise situation here with a substation about a mile away. I have 
 trying to get it fixed for four years. The noise is very predictable as it 
 appears at the slightest hint of moisture in the air. Either fog, snow, or 
rain will
 result in loud three phase sounding noise. Unfortunately the interference
 investigator is never here when the bad weather is. Thanks for the possible
 description as this sort of confirms my suspicions. My next project is to build
 an ultrasonic detector as I am determined to pinpoint the problem. I have 
allready found it with radios but need to pinpoint it to an exact cause. It 
 the power company cant pinpoint it for many reasons.Of course I have to
 remain outside the fence.
   I will post here if we ever get it fixed.
