Thanks Roger. The characteristic impedance of most paired cable, including audio cables and telephone cables, is on the order of 70-100 ohms. CAT5 is 100 ohms. 600 ohms has not been used in pro audio

That's sort of the direction I was thinking about. Note that one can get quite serious with a common mode choke without affecting the differential mode circuit at all. Thanks for the info re: 2.2 MHz

You're looking at the elephant through a differential-mode hole in the tent. Don't rule out the value of common-mode suppression, which is considerable. The KY and K-Com filters are both quite well t

OK. One can be really brute force with a common mode choke if it doesn't add capacitance across the line. You're looking at single turn data very different from what I see in the online catalog. It s

Sure -- you just proved it! Well, you already found one -- turn it off. :) There are two ways the noise is escaping from the TV. 1) The wires connected to it are acting as antennas and radiating it.

I've been hearing something like this too, and so far don't have a clue. In my case, it seems to be several kHz wide, drifts around a bit, and comes and goes. I've mostly heard it between 1820 and 18

Of course not. No reason why it should. For 30M, a multiturn choke on #31 or #43 material is needed. Study http://audiosystemsgroup.com/RFI-Ham.pdf Over the past few months, I've been gradually addin

The material in the ARRL Handbook is woefully out of date and quite inadequate. See http://audiosystemsgroup.com/RFI-Ham.pdf for much more effective choke designs, with measured data to support them.
