Hmmmm. One check would be to see if its azimuth-dependent too. I'm thinking
about non-linear junctions (aka rusty nail syndrome) producing weird effects 
(e.g. corroded local metalwork, towers, gutters etc). Find the best beam 
heading then go hit the metal joints it points at.

Others will doubtless add their percieved wisdom.
