This surely falls under the signal noise category, but it might not be
something people ever think about. It's power lines. My yard is
wrapped in utility lines k/t how it sits in the Universe. Both MATS
(local transport, Mountain Area Transportation System) and local
Pickens County Sheriff's Office during 9-1-1 emergency calls are NOT
able to call out *at all* when they're sitting in my driveway.
Seems natural to a-sume those two community resources have
communications systems powerful enough to worm through anything, but
apparently... nope. At least not when it comes to sitting underneath a
tight nest of power lines. :)
