Hello all!
I am hoping someone here can help us out. My husband and I are both hams. 
Currently we are running an Icom 756Pro into either a random wire or a 
vertical, depending on the band. We live in a 3rd floor apartment which is 
the top floor in this building. The antennas are up on the roof. Because of 
our location grounding is a problem. We seem to have problems using the 
longwire on 40 and 80 meters as we are getting into phones and TVs. On 
10/15/20 meters using the vertical we get into AM radios and phones. Is there 
anything we can do or filters we can buy that can help eliminate these
