Jim, I was hoping after SANDY it would have improved since a fair amount was replaced.. but it seems worse... Recently the noise has gone - Why? I dont know... I have to drive by that block and see if maybe they fixed the issue? I doubt it. But I think i will just start submitting complaints using my AM radio in my car as I drive around the neighborhood. It should improve all around if I keep up with it.
Hi Mike, when LIPA was LILCO they used to hav an RFI division which the guy who was the head was a ham but I am sure he has retired. Bck in the 90ies I had built a very effective contest station and I could pick those pole peg xfmr's up with a mile of my house and they after many complaints would send there RFI guy out and I would show them the problems, a few month down the road and they would have everything fixed just before the CQWWDX contest but come the winter time a whole new crop of Pole pegs would start shorting out again, it just never ends. There power grid system is soo old here on LI that it makes for a constant battle, LI is a great qth for DXing but between the towns getting stuffy about towers and what you have to deal with we are moving off.
