I use the 1026 and K3. The 1026 is connected to the RX IN and RX OUT. I use it to suppress a neighbor's dimmer light. I also have the TimeWave ANC4 and it works equally good. I use it on another rig and switch the noise antenna with a two position coax switch. My noise antenna is about 40 feet long and positioned on the lot line nearest to the noise.
It used to be a quiet area at my location, but since about the middle 1990's it has become riddled with all sorts of garbage noise. My belief is there is very little if any oversight on electronic and electrical devices and the industry seems to do their own thing however way it saves them money. I would like to see more stringent mandatory testing of all these gadgets and electrical devices paid for by the mfg, BEFORE they can be placed on shelves for sale, then testing later from randomly picked off the shelve items to assure the production lots are maintaining the same standard as the testing subject. This should be all paid by the mfg and independent test labs do the work, NOT their own labs. Results submitted to the FCC for review and possible corrective action including fines and removal of the offending device from sales.
The part 15 sticker on the bottom is not enough.
That's my little soapbox rant, hi.
