>Another thing to watch is common mode interference on the CATV shield.  I
have a situation next door, that I'm working on (slowly because I've been
off the air and on the tower all summer) where there is interference to one
particular TV set when you just touch the shield on the connector.  This
type of interference is usually characterized by rectified sounding SSB (or
CW) in the TV audio, independent of channel and independent of volume
control setting.  In my case it is also very proportional to the power with
nothing at 100 w and a fair amount at 1200 w.  My case is 75 and 40 m only.
>The neighbor is having the CATV people install a ground at the entrance to
the house, something I would think would be required by code anyway.  If
that doesn't take care of it, I'll try a big toroid common mode filter at
the TV (10-20 turns of the cable on the correct toroid material).
