A few years back i my receivers were wiped out by a line noise. the
power company was great with their help finding it. we spent about 2
hrs checking lines it was weird . they could pick it up on their
lines for about 3 miles. they started cutting out sections of line
till they found it was on the section 1/4 miles from my house. they
killed both ends and still it was on the dead line. so they started
pulling meters in each house on that section. came to a guy who had a
barn and a dog run outside his barn. pulled his meter and WAM it was
gone. well they found that he had a electric fence around his dog log
and the barn was across the road from his house. with a power drop
going to the barn from his garage. they looked inside his garage and
guess what they found a wire coming off a fence charger going to the
ground wire on the power drop. then across the road they found
another wire coming off the ground down to the fence. he was using
the power companies ground wire to power his fence. needless to say
they cut everything out pulled his meter and left a note for him to
come to the office if he wanted power restored. .
this is just something to think about. also i have found that the new
light bulbs they say are so cost saving are noise generators of the
highest level. xyl bought some and the shack is a shop about 100 feet
from the house . had to go in and remove all of them.
