Probably a neighbors dimmer light.  I got one here too.  I can put my portable 
SW up to the power meter or any wires and it comes in stronger.  I know for a 
fact it's their dimmer because I went over with my SW rx one day and had them 
shut it off and the noise went away.  Sadly, our FCC does nothing about the 
sale of this junk and leaves it up to the licensed operator to somehow get the 
neighbor to fix it which is not an easy task.  Short of a class-action lawsuit 
against all mfg that make and import this crap, there is not much we can do 
about it except try to get the neighbor to co-operate and fix it, not likely.  

Good luck
