My latest one I tracked to a pole up the street. Its radiating up and 
down the street but fairly sure. I rarely get this lucky but it was 
already marked for replacement due to a weak wood pole. Lots of hardware 
on it and they told me it would be all new. So waiting on that before I 
track further. I have had so many fixed for decades I communicate via 
email with the engineer there. There office is only about a half mile 
from my QTH.

I nearly always track them myself nowadays since its a small rural 
utility. Saves time vs them having to call their supplier who has rfi 
services that can take forever and ever and ever and then I lack 
confidence they know what they are doing. Last one they tracked off down 
in the woods and it turned out it was the pole in my backyard. I tracked 
it to the exact hardware after df'ing then using my QST article 
ultrasonic dish instead of waiting for them to come back. This time 
though I have been unable to hear it with the ultrasonic but df'ed it on 
several frequencies/antennas/rigs.
