I was trying to run the Illinois QSO party today and 40m was getting clobbered 
by something causing an S9 noise level.  I wonder if it is a plasma TV in the 
area.  Does anyone on the list have experience with this type of RFI?  The 
interference I had was a buzzing/hash type noise that covered about 40khz of 
bandwidth.  It would occassionally disappear for a few seconds and then come 
back.  The 40khz of bandwidth that it did cover would move up or down the band 
slightly across time.  Does this sound like plasma TV RFI, or does anyone have 
an idea of what could be causing a noise like this?

The noise blanker on my Yaesu FT857D didn't do anything on this noise, and for 
a little while a S9 clicking noise showed up that the noise blanker did nothing 
on either.  Kind of a disappointing NB in the FT857, I will have to say.
