I had a guy wire on a power pole which was very close to the support
cable for the cable TV. Not sure what the power company may have had
attached to the guy wire, as a possible ground, or.... Anyway, every
time the wind was easterly, it pushed the pole just enough to arc
between those two and I had terrible noise.
I was running around with a little AM radio and gave that guy wire a
shaking and discovered that is what it was. As it swayed it arced.
Power company put a big rubber wrap around insulator on it and I had no
problem after that.
Interesting that everything in the neighborhood radiated that noise.
Fences, lines, guys. For several blocks around, when the source was in
front of my house.
