First of all is it your fence? If so you might just turn it off when you
operate. If it is not talk to the owner and offer to help him or her locate
the problem. Modern fence charges usually do not produce the noise and the
likely problem is a poor connection in the fence wire or something that is
providing a temporary short. If it is the charger you might offer to buy the
farmer a new one. They really don't cost all that much these days.
Check any gates and make sure that the connections across them are making
solid contact. They are the most likely cause of noise.
Does the noise happen all the time or are there conditions where it does not
occur? Walk the fence line and check that all of the insulators are in good
shape and none are cracked or broken. Also look for grass, weeds, or other
objects that may be in contact with the fence wire.
Usually most farmers would welcome the help because the noise is probably
causing them havoc on their AM radio.
If all else fails get a radio with a good DSP and you can filter out most of
