Is this a 24 hr/day sound or is it night only?  Almost could be 60 Hz - do
you have a street light near?  Or a power company transformer with problems?
If the sound is arcing, you might be in luck - it will probably burn itself
up before long, hi

I have a terrible noise on 160 and 80 meters and to a much lesser extent 40.
I have eliminated my house as the culprit
by shutting down the main breaker and operating the radio off battery power.
I have also asked my neighbor to do the
same thing which provided no clue either. This signal is about every 90 KHZ
or so. I have recorded it in the CW position
with no filtering. Here is the link to the file. My apologies for it's size
but I have never done this before. Let me know if
there is anything else I can provide. By the way...it's the .wav file...the
other file is my mug.

Cablevision just left my house and told me in no way was it a result of
their equipment. The telephone company is next
then the electric company.
