CHU 6075

When we were kids, we would also run into that problem. At several spots on
the MW band, the images would pop up, and then disappear. There would be a
clicking noise when they would start up, as if a switch was being turned on.
It didn't occur to us back then that maybe the wind was blowing some sort of
rusty metal junction, such as a rain gutter, until I read about that
possibility several years later.
