[RFI] Modem grief from 40M on down
Wed, 17 Apr 2002 22:06:45 -0500
I have two modems to my compute, One is an older ISA slot & the
other a PCI
If I get on any band from 40 meters on down the PCtel has a
coronary. 3 watts is
enough to stop it dead in it's tracks & do a redial.
The antenna (butternut HF6V) is only 6-8 feet from the tele line. No
other good place
to put it...
I wound the phone lines around amidon rods & with this I can do
100 watts with the
ISA modem still connecting. Nothing I have tried with ferrites has
worked with the
other. I have a fair collection of lossy ferite here & I must have had
5-6 rods with tele
cord wrapped around it in series & absolutely no go.
Running into a bird dummy load I have no problem with the modem
Any suggestions how to deal with this?
