I have the simpler dipole version of this little am vhf receiver.
It is what it is, and no more. While i can say I did hear some
commercial aircraft come thru during the RFI hunt, overall the set
DOES a great job narrowing down the problem. By shortening the
extended dipoles, thus reducing sensitivity , the set has brought me
to the offending power pole .time and time again.....
Regrettably finding the problems has been the easy part.
Back in Illinois ( COM ED ) the hard part was getting the work done...
Eventually the tech guys would come out and verify the problem and
write the required work orders. And on some occasions accuse the
workers who did the repair work of .. NOT doing the work... On one
occasion the work order was cancelled by someone internal... to be
discovered by another internal person.
sadly ... letters from the ARRL and even the FCC were blatantly IGNORED.
I was told they don't care about those ...however do have the local
into the matter , and things fly. In Chicago DO call the ICC ILL
commerce commission... they guy who controls the rate increases..
and Watch ComEd FLY.....
But do the prerequisite call the utility ,,,,, over and over ...
then bring in the guns when all else fails.... IT WILL WORK
