Greg raises a good point and remember that the utility company might have an opinion as well. If a line was to fall on your set up or if a service person needed access the utility might feel as though you were interfering with a right-of-way.
Oops! I almsot forgot – when BPL (see http://www.arrl.org/tis/info/HTML/plc/ for more info on that) comes to your location you’ll have some possible additional interference, so that’s another reason to avoid locating anywhere near a power line.
I’ll go a step farther and say don’t do it under any circumstances.
Experimental broadcasting for a better tomorrow!
