Yes. Another symptom of this leakage is carriers on repeater frequencies. These are the carriers for the TV channels (or sidebands of significant components of the video, like the line rate, harmonic

Make your own with Snap n Seal connectors and a good MATV/CATV coax. Look for an RG-59 or RG-6 that is at least double shielded (quad-shielded is better), and get connectors to match. A year or two a

While I certainly don't condone intentional QRM, when the cable system chose to convert TV to VHF frequencies allocated to other users, it assumed the responsibility for preventing QRM to and from li

Hi Tim, Study the Ferrites and RFI tutorial on my website, especially the Power Point that includes material about "the pin 1 problem." The latter is a major cause of RFI, and virtually ALL computer

The CO Alarm is acting as a radio receiver, and we all know that a receiver needs an antenna. Thus, ALWAYS begin by asking What receiving antenna(s) is (are) connected to the device receiving the in

I disagree. N3OX was right on target -- the wire that you are calling "ground" is part of the antenna, and it's carrying the full the antenna current and is radiating into your home equipment. Reson

I doubt it. The AC wiring between the noise source and the filter will act as an antenna, and in a typical building, is likely to be long enough to be a pretty effective radiator on the HF bands. Now

VHF noise can be easier to pinpoint, because the strongest radiation tends to be from wires much closer to the source. Driving/walking around with a talkie or mobile VHF rig MIGHT help you zero in on
