: I would call back and ask if they could move you up as you would hate to
: have to get the Public Utilities Commission and FCC involved.......etc.

Agreed.  I had great results where I grew up, usually fixed by lunch.  Not 
knowing the system here and having several turnarounds in employment, 
retirement, et cetera, one complaint had no results in three and a half 
years.  In that time I DID talk to the PUC who was absolutely rabid about 
nailing the power company and I tracked down a link at the FCC site for 
noise complaints.  Just as I was about to contact the PUC AND fill out a 
complaint form with the FCC EVERY time I turn on a radio and hear power line 
noise, another issue with the power company netted me a telephone number to 
an old supervisor who I mentioned the noise to, who gave me another number 
for "line noise mitigation" or some such.  I told the person on that phone 
it was the last call before calling the PUC and FCC.  I had a group of 
people out within a few days tracking noise, a few days later several 
transformers and insulators were replaced.
