Restoration and Noise Removal is one area Linux lacks in
significantly.  There are some tools such as Audacity's noise
removal(Not useful in this case from the sounds of it) and GWC, but I
find them to be lagging far behind what is availiable on other
platforms.  This isn't meant to be a put down, the other alternatives
have teams of engineers that get paid to work on the DSP full time,
but it does mean that for such work I do turn to other platforms
currently.  In my case I use Ardour(And Mixbus) on OS X and utilize
the WaveArts restoration suite plugins in the AU format.
