In general, you need to get MUCH closer to the noise source to find it on VHF (and you should be listening with an AM detector, if possible). The antenna that is radiating the signal you hear on HF i

Excellent advice! These conductors are often involved in radiating the trash. Remember that ANY WIRE CARRYING RF CURRENT WILL RADIATE! Just because we CALL a wire "ground" doesn't mean that it isn't

Again, we slip into the trap of viewing TVI as interference with the RF signal. In today's world, that rarely happens. Instead, RF either couples directly into poorly shielded equipment, or excites p

As far as I know, these lights work on 12VAC, which means that any 12V transformer rated for the application would work. Unfortunately, they are physically larger than the switching power supplies, a

This is very bad advice. A major CAUSE of RFI to auto electrical systems is lousy chassis bonding due to excessive emphasis on painting the chassis parts. The body of a vehicle is a big broad mass --

I'll second all of Dale's comments, and add this. What is your final objective? If you could be happy with 500-600 watts RF output on the HF bands, I strongly suggest that you look at a power amp lik

Look at the Honda inverter generators. I bought a big one -- 240V, 6kVA, enough to start and run the motors on my well pumps. About $3K. For about $900, you can get a 2kVA unit that will probably run

I'm a CW guy, so I know the products that show up in the CW bands. Do you also hear it around 14,029-14,030? Around 21,052? Those are common mode radiation of products of a wired Ethernet system. The

Probably so. It's a simple matter of coupling from one antenna to another (that is, the Ethernet cable is an antenna), and the proximity and directional patterns of each antenna have a strong effect

Hi Bill, When Randy (K9OR) and I did this at his QTH several years ago, we knocked it down a lot but didn't kill it. There is almost certainly some direct radiation from the Ethernet boxes themselves

That's because the cause is common mode current on the coax, not the RF frequency that you're using. In other words, the coax is acting like a long wire antenna. I wouldn't expect a string of beads t

The latest Fair-Rite catalog now lists #31 as the material of choice for suppression at HF. I concur. #43 is slightly better above 10 MHz. #77 is a poor choice compared to #31. Thanks for the input

I wouldn't expect it to. You need at least 14 turns on a single # 31, and more turns or more toroids in the stack is better. Use my measured data for RG8X on these cores as a starting point. In essen

from Yes, but that winding will drop some voltage on transmit. I'd try ONLY a BIG capacitor first, then add the inductance only if the cap didn't solve the problem. 73, Jim K9YC _____________________
