Lowering My Noise Floor
#7
Well I discovered ONE source of noise: My "FCC Compliant" Plasma Display.

Tuned up XE1/DJ4EJ on 21270 today. I could hear him well, an S5 easy. Then Stuart fires up the Plasma and a game. Noticed the noise but didn't make the 'connection' until I heard changes in the phase of the noise. Then I turned and watched Stuart playing his PS3 FPS Game and immediately noticed correlation between his FPS view and the noise phase and/or intensity.

I shut down the Plasma (42") and zero noise!

So Rich, Jim: have any suggestions? Yeah I could shut off the set, I own the stupid thing but that would create other problems. I've seen MFJ makes a noise reducer with decent reviews, as does JPS (NIR-12).

Anyone have any suggestions?
I could build a Faraday Cage for my Station! That would be actually less problematic than shutting off the set!
