Re: Video - Medium Wave Interference

Paul Blundell

Well today I had a chance to look in to this more as I was home alone and the signal was back, very strong at times.

I turned off each circuit, walking around I was able to find the strongest signal was in one room which is closest to our neighbours.

I headed outside and when I was against our side fence, this signal overloaded on many frequencies.

So I now know where the source is, now to log the dates and times to see if I can find out what is causing it.

Thanks for the suggestion on turning off the power on each circuit, next time I am home alone I will give this a try.

When I'm tracking interference, I usually cycle through the circuit
breakers, turning off one at a time, in the house breaker box. At
least I can tell if it's in the house or not.

The last time, I isolated it to the garage breaker, then, unplugging
one thing at a time, found it was the cable TV provider's box outside
(Verizon FIOS ONT)- not the power supply, the actual converter box.
Swapping in a new one didn't fix it however, so now I just turn it
(and the garage door opener) off if I want to dx.
