Two possibilities quickly come to mind:
1) an electric fence charger
2) the local oscillator (L.O.) of a scanning receiver
The repetition rate of (1) is usually a bit lower than 1 Hz.
The signals that are problematic in (2) are usually VHF and up.

Subject: [RFI] 1Hz Noise
Just got my antenna up at my new QTH and I'm trying to track down noise
sources. Anyone heard a noise source that sounds like a "tick, tick, tick"
at about a 1Hz rate. It almost sounds like a clock. I've heard it from
14MHz up through 50MHz. It seems to be in the direction of my neighbor's
