I see all kinds of things like that too and for whatever reason they just don’t get in the way of my receiving. Sometimes I’ll dial into them to see if I can hear anything intelligent and so far it just sounds like a constant carrier moving around. I think with conventional radios we dial around and just don’t notice them unless they are interferring with something that we are interested in.

I did what Andy suggested, put a dipole antenna as far away from the house as possible and brought the signal in with coax. that makes the noise floor drop down to the good old fashioned atmospheric noise that’s always there so then these noise spikes are not so noticeable. I understand its not an easy thing for someone living in a condo or apt or a neighborhood with self appointed HOA sheriffs.
