Re: Computer RFI problems-FARMERIK
Thanks for the tip. I went snooping around the basement, and found the surge protector/outlet box for the server, and all along the wiring back to the panel had a large amount of noise when I put the PL-310 nearby, tuned to a fairly weak AM station. I coiled the surge protector power cord into a number of turns, to form a choke, for now, since the new ones won't be here until next week. That did cut the noise by perhaps 50% upstairs.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
I saw a number of other small things I could do too. For example, we have cable for Internet,telephone and TV, and the shielded cable for them has some RFI along it. I need to check the ground on that.
Some of the cables which connect the different computers run close to the server and surge protector much more than they could.
One other interesting thing I noticed was a huge boost in the AM signal when I got the PL-310 near the phone company ground for the old hard wired phone lines. Interesting! - FARMERIK
