I recently discovered that a neighbors Plasma TV has been the source of
interference I've been experiencing on HF. Needless to say, it's
difficult to hear much while beaming in his direction and if it wasn't
for the fact that I'm far enough away to null the noise in other
directions, I'd be off the air.
To add insult to injury, the same noise has turned up on another beam
heading, but fortunately, it's much weaker and not nearly as intrusive.
The fact that it was discovered a day after Christmas leads me to
believe that someone received a new Plasma for the holiday.
I hate to say it folks, but I think it's only a matter of time before we
become overwhelmed with devices like these, especially in areas like
mine where neighbors are within 100 feet of each other.
We're fortunate that our utility company has a special investigator who
does a terrific job solving RFI issues, so we will pursue this one. I
feel for those who aren't so lucky.
