[WriteLog] RF from your Computer Monitor..
Tue Jan 21 07:41:15 EST 2003
I can sympathize with you, I tried two differant CRT monitors a few years
ago and the hash was just about like you described. I finally went to a LCD
flat panel monitor and I can assure you, they're RF quiet. It made the
difference between being able to work only the strongest stations to being
able to work signals that barely register on the S-meter.
I just recently added a second similar monitor (both 15") and am enjoying
all the windows and boxes WriteLog has to offer with no noise. This is not a
very cost effective solution, but it was the only one for me.
Good Luck, 73
