Hmmm... dusk, when street lights come on. We had a similar problem with one of our network satellite links several years back, and it took about a month before we discovered the culprit: a high pressure sodium light fixture on the side of our neighbor's building. For whatever reason, it would radiate a lot of hash while it was warming up, and then behave itself for the rest of the night.
As it turns out, my boss finally spotted it: he was in his truck listening to an AM station when the blast-o-crap hit, and saw the light flickering before it finally snapped on.
I truly hate this kind of intermittent problem.

Upon further investigation, it was Jim Ferrone who suggested this to us. He said "check your parking lot for any flickering lights or dead ones". Well sure enough, the parking lot light, located directly behind the Fox antenna as a matter of fact, had died. Shut the power off to the fixture, the hits went away.
Another odd interfereing factor we found too, are lawn mowers and any small motor. When they mowed the lawns near the satellite dishes, our ABC receivers would unlock and go crazy.
