Has been QRT for several months, just got lazy and overworked.
Finished moving to a new apartment! I have unpacked my HV-5S, FT-817 and SCU-17. I was disappointed after checking my setup last night and this morning. S8 noise on the bands supported by the HV-5S (40mb, 15mb, 6mb). Sheesh. Noise was tolerable in my previous appartment.
Antenna is indoor (attached to a tripod) since now I have no veranda. :-( Apartment is made of wood so indoor made sense to me.
I've got old JRC AC line noise suppressors on the outlets that I use.
