Comments so far consistent with chatter seen in the past.  Going

there is somewhat challenging in terms of cost & getting stuff in.  So I 
suspect I need to work with what is there & what I can bring with me.  
For the price of a Honda, I could have two of something else (read: 
complete set of spares) & enough leftover for a line filter that despite 
specs will apparently do nothing.

Luckily, it looks like have found an old-school Robin to borrow & for 
filtering the nature-of-beast noise with them just needs sacks to fill 
with sand which is available in abundance over there.  Success is also 
nearly certain.

An acquaintance here has a Honda 1 kW inverter generator that will not 
start, perhaps can see if I can find anything in my collection of 
mystery torroids that will help after getting it running again for him.  
Longer term, I suspect I will end up getting some sort of inverter 
generator of my own to keep over there & expect in practice that none 
will be quiet enough RF-wise as from the all the chatter about it seems 
that conducted emissions standards aren't good enough for this sort of
