It sounds to me like you have some RF in the shack, Mike.
Are you using a good RF Choke between your antenna and your Eagle?
I use 3; one inside the house at the rig, one outside the house, and one
half way to the antenna.

Subject: [TenTec] CAT com port troubles over (I hope)

You may recall last week I asked for help solving a problem with the CAT com
port on my laptop dying when I keyed the transmitter.  Tried a few things
suggested by list members.  What seems to have worked is a new, shorter,
double-shielded with integral ferrites on each end, USB cable Eagle to
laptop.  I haven't put it through every possible test yet but so far it
seems to have solved the problem.  So thanks again to everyone who
responded.  Am hoping for a good experience in the IOTA contest next
weekend.  Look for me if you need NA-055.
