    Methinks cheap digital devices are multiplying like mosquitos and knocking out one noise source device at a time is a losing battle in the end, sort of like wiping out the little biters with a flyswatter. If you can even locate them. Occasionally I have had line noise problems that even radiate into the VHF spectrum, so that I can track them with a beam ant. and receiver, but sometimes you get to the strongest point and the source becomes vague and then you are stuck with "I know about where it is, more or less".

    OK then how 'bout a 3D Fractal - Hyperbolic Encabulator? See vid link below. I'm tryin' to decipher if that's a secret message embedded in Morse through the patterns ...

    I haven't found any announcement of this. Is there a link to the N.O.V. issued to Solar City?

    What frightens me is that you caught the secret message... You are now allowed to see the next level:

    I used a MFJ-1025 I think it was (the one without the preamp) for a while. It worked quite well in the end but took a lot of fiddling with the noise receive antenna. I modified it because it doesn't cover the full 360 degree phase shift. The null for me often seemed to frustratingly be in the gap.

    Note that those devices can be useful for nulling out a single noise source but they won't help if you have multiple noise sources in multiple directions because the levels and phase shifts will be different for the different sources.

    I run 4 12 volt panels in series(lighter so my bad back can lift them) so about ~80 volts to the charge controllers in the house. Some panels do not have built in blocking diodes and that can cause issues with trying to series or parallel them.

    My panels are renogy. It is more like when they begin to swap roles from source to sink based upon available solar energy that is variable (shadows that cover/partial obstruct individual panels,etc.). I am with you on total series connection, that does make the most sense.
