I agree entirely. I do indeed find many sources which are NOT causing 
the problem. I identify the correct ones by simultaneously listening to 
the HF audio (relayed by phone) from the home station and the audio from 
my VHF tracker. When the fluctuations match, I know I have the right 
one. This has been very successful for years. The hard part is getting 
the utility to take action.
