If I were the FCC, I would tell you to go away until you have localized 
it more. They don't have the resources to come out in the field any 
locate every noise source.  Unless I missed it in an earlier message, 
you haven't even described the noise.

I would certainly get with local hams and try DFing it.  Even a simple 
2M handi with AM receive in the aircraft band can do the job.  For 
better results, replace the rubber ducky with a resonant dipole, or even 
better, a Moxon (see QST 10 years or so ago)

If it sounds like powerline noise (60 or 120-Hz component), have you 
contacted the power company?  They *may* have excellent capabilities.
