I've been a subscriber since January 1999 and have kept all the postings as
excellent reference material. I searched these postings, plus the ARRL
site, and came up with nothing as to "motion detector" RFI fixes.
During the CQWW CW contest, a neighbor called to say that when the antenna
is pointed his way, I am constantly turning on his motion detecting flood
lights. This was happening on 40 meters with 1.5kw output to a 2 ele at 75
feet. We have small city lots here, so he is fairly close to me I guess
(maybe 150 feet NE of the tower??). I don't know about other bands yet (I
did a single band contest effort)
Anyway, to the question... any advice for troubleshooting motion detector RFI?
Thanks for the assistance!
