Had a similar problem once.  Got a friend to listen in the shack while I 
walked around the neighborhood with a sledgehammer.  Every time I came 
to a utility pole i gave it a good whack.  One particular pole, when 
ever I whacked it, there was a blip in the noise.  Took the number of 
the pole, called the utility company and reported seeing sparks.
