I know of another one that had problems with noise using the RCS-4, Merv K9FD.
He cured the problem by taking out the diodes and using a multiconductor cable.
Feeding voltage down the coax is fine for Sat TV and etc. There we are
ealing with millivolt signals, not in the low microvolt range.
Just a thought that you might want to consider.
