I'm getting the rate on a 30-year Treasury + 0.84%, reset annually, (current yield approx 2.2%) on TVA Power Bonds 1999 Series A, 6.50% Putable Automatic Rate Reset Securities (PARRS), due 5/01/2029, issued in $25 denominations, not redeemable prior to maturity, and maturing 5/01/2029. Symbol: TVE.

They don't trade in much volume, so you hafta trickle in. But it trades like a preferred, and it's AAA rated. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, I figure.
