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.
