Gents The gas company has now installed shielded cables. As far as I know that is all they've done so far. The shielded cables had no effect on noise amplitude. While RG8 etc could be useful in some

My 80/160 GP doesn't seem to need much matching, or with a feed Z around 35 ohms on 80 I'm just too lazy. The amps load fine at the far end of 300 ft of coax. So I wound a 85mH coil installed from fe

What receiver bandwidth? Its important to know for comparisons, the NF difference between a 3KHz SSB filter and a 300Hz CW filter should be 10dB. Or you could normalize it to 1Hz. 73 Art ____________
