Makes me remember that our hydro power company here hydro-quebec
use to have a grreen line phone system for many years. Dont know if they still use it now.

I lived about 2km from a 735KVA power lines and never hear any QRM but a lots of QRN at HF frq's. Couple of 
ham folks here are living in close proximity less than 1000 feets from power lines or sub station and only 
reporting QRN and buzzing sound. One is so closed he can mesured magnetic field level right in his back yard
