引っ越し (Moved apartments)
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.
I need to move things around since the antenna is setup very near the Alinco (DM-330MV) switching PS. My hunch is that the PS is causing the noise.
There are several wires outside my window, possibly cable or telephone or maybe power line but there is nothing I can do with them :-(
Moved the indoor HV-5S to an alternative position. S8 noise in the evening, and mornings. Around 10am all good and quiet. Now living with IPO and ATT turned ON in my FT-817. Was able to decode some 40mb WSPR local to JA. Best so far was a WSPR from Hokkaido at 0.5W :-)
