I've received several emails indicating rain/precipitation static. I don't
think so as:

1) the antenna it was connected to is at DC ground (halo loop)

2) there is a surge suppressor in the outside connect panel

3) there's another surge suppressor at the input to the radio

4) I've been in Florida for a lot of years and this is the first time I've
ever heard anything like this on 2 meters. It sounded very much like line
noise (which I've spent the better part of a year working with the local
power company to eliminate).

5) although the rain continued at a heavy rate for about an hour, the noise
only lasted a few minutes (never had this happen before either)
