Rich, My guess is that the controller is a variable speed drive for the motor. That type of controller is well known as a nasty noise source. I've talked a bit about them in my RFI tutorial. It is wo

Yes. For a line filter to be effective, there must be a very short shield and circuit return for the filter back to the shielding enclosure of the computer. Any exposed wiring between the filter and

Not a bad cable, a bad router. The cable is acting like a long wire antenna because the router has lousy common mode isolation on the output that the cable is connected to. The simple ferrite chokes

cable First, you MUST use enough turns before you begin seeing much benefit from these chokes. The particular cores you purchased may be too small for this use. I recommend the 2.4-inch o.d. 1.4-inch

Well, sort of. But ANY antenna that is WORKING is going to put RF in your house. A better way to look at it is to say that some antenna SYSTEMS inherently put more RF there than others. :) The word "

You may be right, but I doubt it. In other words, it's far more likely to be common mode current lighting up a pin 1 problem. If the transmit frequency is 28 MHz or 50 MHz (unlikely nowadays), changi

The most common path for HF RF into a VCR is common mode current on the antennna leadin coupling via a "pin 1 problem" in the VCR. This is especially true on the lower HF bands. Study the section in
