    I am curious, has anyone tried using QRM killers like ANC-4 by Timewave or a similar MFJH-1026 by MFJ Enterprises? I know complaining to FCC is essential but these devices can reduce interfering noise significantly while waiting for FCC action to get done. I have one such device and it helped me to get on air when I lived in a rental community near Princeton NJ for a few months in 2008. I surveyed the community extensively and understood that noise emanated from many sources and was not easy to catch. Someone suggested ANC-4 and it succeeded in reducing the noise from S-9 level to almost S-1. I moved out from that community soon.

    Mine works perfect, just have to set it correctly.

    Good to hear and thanks for the reply. I live in a quiet neighborhood where I do not run into much local electrical noise. My ANC-4 remains connected ready to jump in when needed.

    Thanks again

    Perhaps some day a Fractal Encabulator. Might be dangerous, like crossing plazma streams; total protonic reversal ...

    W7JZE, K3RW and K6CLS like this.

    Good Question! Look at my QRZ Bio. I documented a Plasma TV RFI problem I had a couple of years back. I actually had a FCC field monitoring vehicle on site. Girl was given a notice of violation...and nothing came of it. (PC circumstances.) Read if interested. I wish you better LUCK than I had with the PC group in D.C.

    Have to make'em out of unobtainium first!

    NS6Q. Was the RFI eliminated? If so, What did Solar City do to eliminate the RFI??

    I better keep my mouth shut on this one since I don't understand the physics of the PV panels I have. Mine did not like the series connection, why, at this point don't have a clue. The optimizer is shown in a series connection so without having one here its hard to even speculate what is happening.

    ...which won't work either. :)
