There is MEASURED data on my website for 1-14 turn chokes wound with #18 wire on 2.4" toroids in #31, #43, #61, #77, and #78. There is also MEASURED data for coaxial chokes on #31 cores. http://audio

As long as the electronics wants 5VDC to run, it doesn't much matter whether that 5V comes from the el cheapo noise generator or a much better one. You could, for example, simply use a 6V filament tr

Jim's point about directional properties of antennas away from their design frequencies is well taken. Another hint, learned from Fox Hunting, is that an HT with a duck can be form a directional ante

And I'll emphasize two VERY important phrases in Dale's preceding sentence, that he clearly understands but didn't articulate in detail -- "in the correct places" and "good board layout techniques."

You can, indeed, roll your own, following guidelines in my RFI tutorial. You can also buy pretty good line filters from a surplus house called Halted Specialties (also known as HSC). On the link belo

That has the potential to be a good move. The existing coax may not be the greatest, and there may be less than wonderful connectors. The two combined might reduce leakage by enough to get the interf

Dale, WA9ENA, has given you some great advice. Larry, W0QE, made an excellent observation about this in a conversation we had offline. If the interfering signal is 50dB over S9, you've got to do a MA

There are two VERY different issues being addressed here. First, you should define what a "Bright House" cable is so that we understand YOUR question. Is it coax, or is it some other kind of cable? W

Try more toroids in the stack and use close-wound turns to lower the resonant frequency, using the data for coax of similar size as a guide. If that helps, it's being radiated by the power cord, If i

Hello Kostas, Several thoughts. First, if you have owned the refrigerator for years or months and the noise just began, it may be the result of some failure within the refrigerator. If that is true,

The way to break that down is to tell him that 1) You view the noise as simply a symptom of some failure in the refrigerator, and that hopefully it will give him a clue about how to find the problem

I'd say common mode and differential mode are equally likely. A ferrite choke on the coax is the right fix for common mode. A bandpass filter (or bandstop filter) is the right fix for differential mo
