A very simple and effective way to eliminate MOST cable RFI is as follows...
Attach a 75-300 ohm balun to the incomming cable at the rear of the
set...take another 75-300 ohm balun, and ..attach the 2 leads to the 2 leads
you just ended up with, and you are back to 75 ohms....this isolates the
shield, which is the source of most RFI (common mode).
Top it off with a 75 ohm hi-pass filter to the set. Sounds simple, but the
baluns are ferrite torroidal and the hi-pass filter adds an extra measure of
harmonic protection. All parts are available at Radio Shack and are
