Just recently had one more intermittent than yours - Called the APS RFI guy and 
they now have a neat RX they connect to your feedline and make a screen shot of 
the waveform - then go looking for a matching waveform. I drove over where I 
had heard it loudest in my searching and he met me there - blasted thing would 
not go . He drove up and down several alleys around there - and while he was 
doing that I went home with my RX on and it popped up - I called him on his 
cell phone -- he found it - one of those blasted metallized mylar ballons 
hanging and breeze would get it where it would start arcing !!! I would have 
hoped the arc would fry the ballon but no such luck. Hank K7HP ----- Original
