Elimination of Electrical Noise
from 30 kHz to 30 MHz

By Don Pinnock, G3HVA
Many radio amateurs experience electrical noise problems and feel forced off the amateur radio bands. The author uses his personal experiences to provide solutions to noise problems that will help many. Don details the various types of noise, how it is generated and how best to deal with it. Faulty or maladjusted machinery or electronic devices can produce so much interference that normal reception is considerably affected. Even equipment operating below or close to International Standards can generate enough electrical noise to severely reduce the chances of a nearby amateur being able to enjoy his hobby. Don describes how to track down a noise source, how to deal with it at its source, and how to put up defenses in your own station to reduce noise entering via the mains wiring. He reports on his own experiments with selecting wire antennas that have increased immunity to external noise. And for those looking for a new house, there is advice on how to choose it from the point of view of noise.
