Yep, arcing is the magic word. I finally built an arc detector (QST 
April 2006, modified) to find problems like this.  The last one I 
tracked down turned out to be located 3 miles from my house.  I was 
amazed.  It was S9 at my house.  I located the lightning arrestor that 
was the problem, called the power company, gave them the info, and said 
the magic word.  I took three hours before they came out and 
disconnected the wire to the lightning arrestor.  Problem gone.
