Hi Jim,

I don't know about the 24V furnace transformer, sincce I got that second 

I had a local noise problem here in the house that I traced to mu door bell 
transformer with a transistor radio. I disconnected the primary it and the 
noise went away. No problem with the new transformer. I suspect some kind of 
internal arcing possibly due to a partially open winding, but the thing would still 
ring the bell.

Possibly there was a similar problem in that furnace tranny.

I guess the moral of this story is that if you have strange noises creeping 
into your receiver, don't rule anything out.
