[RFI] RFI U-verse

Putting a choke on the network feed reduces bandwidth to the service and
creates instability.  There are other measures that can be applied to
eliminate the RF getting into the RG.  I can point you through the
appropriate channels to get this done if you have a problem with RFI to your
U-Verse service.

Thanks & 73,

You didn't say what ferrite core material you're using or how many turns.

It takes more turns for 160 than for 80 and above, and #31 material 
works much better than #43 or #61.  I'd try to get at least 14 turns, 
and more is better. If you've already done that much, with #31 material, 
add a second choke in series.

The best place for the choke(s) is as close as practical to the U-Verse 
box that is receiving the signal.  A choke is unlikely to do much good 
in/near a telephone splice box. It's the electronics that detects the 
RF, and that's where the choke should be.
