Are you aware of the CrankUpTiltOver yahoogroup?
It does sound like a case of rusty-bolt effect that should clear up with
some conductive grease application in the right spot. But plenty of
experienced hams on that yahoo group. I am not one of them... yet!

From: RFI [mailto:rfi-bounces at contesting.com] On Behalf Of Rich Hallman -
Has anyone had any problems with intermittent mixing from a close broadcast
station with a Crank-Up tower? I think I may have an issue with one of my
towers. Cranked up I hear mixing all over 80 meters (Every 10
KC).....Cranked down its gone. I already eliminated the antennas. Mixing
gets very intermittent in wind as the tower moves around.
Thoughts about grounding the top section to the bottom when fully extended?
Was thinking of grounding the coax at the top and bottom of the tower?
