I've posted here before about ongoing interference around (inside and out) my home and the area around my home/street on both my base radio and my portables that has been going on for many years and I still can't locate a source. Yesterday I took my scanner for a walk up and down my block near the telephone poles and found the interference to possibly be from the telephone pole located next door to me. My concerning discovery is I also noticed the interference to be coming off my metal mailbox in front of my home, an UNPLUGGED strand of decorative summer lights around my deck, and in the rear of my home off an umbrella stand in my yard... Why would these objects be radiating the signal? Is this an electromagnetic field? A ground loop? I'm quite concerned about this and advised my local power company of the pole which possibly may be the source...
