I have just called in a severe case of cable radiation that seems to be
related to the downlink band of my cable modem, which I *think* is 2-10
MHz.  It clobbers 40m when things are "right", like when the wind blows
hard - probably a loose shield connection somewhere.  With a portable radio
under the cable drop it's deafening.  It's a complex sounding hummy sort of
thing, very broadband.
