Is there a solution to the sodium light interference
which sounds like an intermittent BUZZZZZZZZZZZZ.... ???
Seriously, though, if the noise is radiated and not being transmitted
through the AC power lines, there's probably not much you can do, apart
from moving the reciever as far as possible away from the lights. Or
put up an outdoor antenna with as good a DC ground as possible, in an
effort to trounce the noise with as much true signal as possible. That
won't solve any weak-signal DX problems, but your signals in the evening
are generally stronger anyway, so it would at least be a start.
1. Identify the malfunctioning light. The bad ones flicker and cycle on and
2. Call whoever's responsible for maintainence, either the Department of
Public Works or the electric power company.
Around here, this procedure fixes the problem within 48 hours.

Do you get the interference day and night? Check light poles around your
block. There may be a flickering bulb or one that does not turn off
during the day. If you do suspect a particular pole check it for a
metal tag with an ID number. Report the location and ID to the utility.
I was thinking that it might have been some sort of a duty cycle issue,
as is the case with solid state dimmers.
