Sounds like it's time to track the source.  If it's strong enough--it might
be close so won't take to long to walk it down with a portable receiver.  

If that doesn't succeed, then move up to a small HF loop antenna for some
directivity (or VHF yagi if you're hearing it in the VHF bands).  ARRL has
had articles how to build a small loop.  If you can't find it, I might have
a copy at work somewhere.

Paul, killed everything in my house, and it is still there. Will see what
else i can do.I am dealing with some Power-line interference also, but that
is being taken care of hopefully. I welcome any suggestions from all. 73

If it remains, you must then triangulate the switching source with a
directional antenna and portable receiver.  In lieu of triangulation, you
can walk the site, noting changes in signal strength but that can be
extremely time consuming.  Be mindful of false results due to re-radiation
of the source.
