It is an FT-890 loaned to me, and I have checked from BC to 10 meters so
far. The strength of the noise drops off markedly above 20 meters, although I
can still hear it on 10 meters.
What I am doing now is resurrecting one of my "ancient" Stoddart NM-20B
(AN/PRM-1) "Noise Meters" and as soon as I get the final bits from Mouser
to complete the refurbishment, will go hunting.
The NM-20B, which is a high-quality, 7 band, receiver, with switchable BFO,
tunes from 150 Khz through 25 MHz, and includes various "input devices"
including a shielded tuned loop, and a device to allow the input to be
connected directly to the AC line.
The operator's manual is LOADED with excellent information on finding
The build-quality of Stoddart gear is simply amazing to behold. Truly
beautiful! Stoddart made such "Noise Meters" that cover from 20 Hz through
I have those which cover from 20 Hz up through about 4 GHz. but haven't
had a reason to use any...until now.
