I just had a visit from my local AEP rep,
he was here to try to locate an rfi complaint I had called in.
I let him hear the noise (sounds like a noise floor)
(by that I mean no arcing just a steady high noise floor)
We listened from 160m up to 6m
I had my K3 set to AM and a 5khz bandwidth
antenna was a Fan dipole @ 25' (legs for 160/40, 80, 17m)
I tuned the K3 ATU to 1.1:1 on each band

160m = S9+10
80m  = S9+15
60m  = S7-8  (5.335)
40m  = S9
30m  = S6-7  (10.050)
20m  = S6
17m  = S6-7
15m  = S6-7
12m  = S5-6
10m  = S4  (28.027)
6m   = S4

his comment is what is worrying me
he said since the noise is louder on 160 than 10m
that showed the noise is closer to me
rather than farther away
(closer meaning within a block or so)

is that assumption correct?
