I have noise on 2M with 2 stacked yagi's. The antennas allowed me to look at
a specific direction. The noise was heard in a 90 degree area where a peak
could easily be found. After that I put the radio in the car. Now I need to
check in detail but I don't want to snoop around his property. He is running
on-at-dusk flood lights using 4 incadesant 75W? flood lights, which I expect
to be the problem.
Controller or .22 Hmmmmm.....

Can't offer ay advice, but need to trace a noise north of my QTH.
It's on HF bands, most noticeable on 3.5-4 mhz, only at night or early
How did you trace yours?
