I had heard that the Corsair II's noise blanker was unusually 
ineffective as compared to most other Ten-Tec rig noise blankers for 
dealing with pulse noise characteristic of man0made electrical 
interference. And now that I have a Corsair II there seems to be more 
than a bit of truth to this. In my environment my Scout, Paragon, 
Omni-C, and Omni-VI+ noise blankers are very effective in reducing 
electical impulse noise but the Corsair II is totally ineffective. I 
briefly discussed this with Ten-Tec service and they confirmed that the 
Corsair's NB was designed to combat the 'then troublesome' Russian 
Woodpecker.... long since removed as a problem.

My question is has anyone successfully changed the pulse width of the 
Corsair's noise blanker to make it more effective in today's noisy 
environments? If so do you recall the changes that you made?
