PG&E fixed most of my noise problem last week .. 2 days ago, an RFI guy ..
WB6FSZ (PGE employee for RFI--super nice guy) showed up to check out a
next-door SWL/CBers noise, and we had a nice nose-to-nose QSO .. it was
already GONE, due to the PG&E having replaced bad insulators on their 12-7KV
lines .. here's where the "cute" device he was using originated, but ..
was already solved by my short-wave radios. It is a nice piece of
equipment, but .. FYI .. put a cheapo AM radio on an unused frequency ..
look for louder noise . and .. then .. hold the radio (the ferrite aerial)
AGAINST the pole .. you will find the offending location .. Mark AA6DX
I WILL BE SHOWING PICTURES OF THE DIRTY INSULATORS, ETC.. ON ONE OF MY
WEBSITES.. WILL GIVE POSTING DATA HERE !!! I have them .. in hand .. HIHI.
