The noise blanker in my 544 is extremely effective against line noise.  I'm 
told it would work well with ignition noise, too.  But I believe it is not 
much punkin' on atmospheric noise.  (I have been wrong before).

My Omni-C noise blanker was a poor imitation of the 544 blanker UNTIL I made 
its circuitry identical to the latter -- then it worked very well, indeed. 
It was an easy, reversible modification to the Omni-C blanker.

I wrote an extremely brilliant analysis of locating sources of line noise. 
It used to be online but is no more.  I can email it to anybody who is 
interested.  If anyone can post it and deems it worthy, I'll send it to just 
one person.  It is a very small file.

Thought I'd ask on the off-chance somebody has a noise blanker board 
available for the 544...

Love the old 544 but drowning in summertime electrical noise here...much of 
it blankable on many radios. Wish the Omni V blanker worked. Usually end up 
running an FT-102 lately because of the effective NB.

Maybe I'll get lucky and find one!!
