Today my utility company sent a crew out in response to a request I had 
made of them to see if they could solve a horrible noise problem I had. 
It was never less than an S9, and most of the time was 10-20 over. A 
couple of us had walked around with one of those MFJ line noise 
receivers and a 3 element beam, and had found what we thought was the 
pole in question.

The lineman called me and told me he thought he had found the noise 
source, although not on the pole I thought it was on. He said there was 
a bad lightning arrestor, and it was VERY loud on his gear, and was 
radiating for more than a mile.

I turned on the rig, and....... S1 and below!!

There are some good guys out there.

Just had to tell SOMEbody.
