Before you place too much confidence in data from your network analyzer, study my measurement travails, documented in the Coaxial Chokes Power Point. Ferrite chokes are VERY difficult to measure accu

Yes. With ferrites, the primary effect is to shift the resonance down in frequency. Because the capacitance of the DUT is so small, a rather small value of stray C is not insignificant. My estimate o

If what you hear is HUM (pure 60 Hz) rather than BUZZ (little or no 60 Hz, but lots of 180, 360, 420, etc.) suspect a magnetic field coupling problem. If what you hear is BUZZ, suspect power-related

You may have a magnetic field problem due to wiring errors in your AC power distro. There must be ONE, BUT ONLY ONE, bond between neutral and ground in any power system, and that bond must be at the

As I observed much earlier in the thread, this problem has the symptoms of magnetic field coupling because Gary has described it as pure 60 Hz hum, NOT BUZZ. If power system wiring is correct, the ma

Can anyone point me to engineering references that discuss the relative susceptibility to RFI of DTV as compared to analog TV? That is, is DTV more or less susceptible to interference, or about the s

What are you using for antennas? How much separation? What kind of feedlines? It's not at all surprising that you're having trouble with harmonics. Filters don't reduce out of band signals to nothing

Yes. I've had at least a dozen CFLs in my home for about two years. No issues, no RFI. Most came from Costco, a few from a local hardware store. My electricity bill is a lot lower as a result, and sl

Yes, they can be very nasty noise sources. The fundamental problem is that the charging currents are pulse regulated, and the circuit designer has ignored fundamental design rules to prevent RFI. The
