John, let's talk about antennas first. What kind of antenna are you using and 
how high is it? Man-made noise is usually vertically polarized, which means a 
vertical antenna will pick up more of it than a beam or a dipole. Also, the 
lower you go in frequency, the more atmospheric noise you get. Man-made noise 
responds better to noise blankers than atmospheric noise. Sometimes, DSP can 
Since you're talking about 30m, you're working CW or a digital mode. Use the 
narrowest filter you have. Same signal, less width for noise, better 
signal/noise ratio.
