My wife wanted to go fishing today for her birthday so of course I took here. We were in the Columbia by St. Helens there was a lot of thunder and we weren’t feeling all that comfortable when we started hearing this buzzing noise. I looked around to see if there were any other boats..none..then I stood up. The noise was coming from my VHF antenna, I turned the radio off and the noise was still there, I hurried and dropped the antenna down and put the tip in the water figuring that the noise could have been electricity in the air gathering around my boat. We decided to get the heck out of there and when we grabbed our rods we were both shocked real hard. The hair was standing up on our necks and arms, and the dog was real quiet. We got the anchor pulled and off the river ok but that was quite an uncomfortable experience. Have you ever had anything like that happen or heard your antenna buzz with static electricity?
