FM ought to survive. AM? Static Wasteland...

Any idea what sort of thing could cause this sort of behaviour down a 
half-kilometre (to nearest neighbour) or further three-phase line? It 
totally kills mom's Radio4 (pretty much all of the LW/MW/SW bands) and 
it also kills the internet due to induced noise in the long phone line.

Radio near meter cupboard? Supposed to be practically silent. WTF?!?!?

Best wishes,
