There is another thing I have noticed about some power lines.

At a local campground where we camp, there are some power lines just as you 
go into the campground.  When listening to the AM radio, the signal always 
gets much stronger as I drive right under the lines.  I've always wondered 
what would happen if I sat under them with a mobile and transmitted.  Maybe 
it would act like an amp :-)  73
