    I recently purchased a Samsung Gas stove. It has electronics that control the oven part. Just this weekend it started to try and program its own temp and cook time. Wife was not happy! Then I realized it was me on my radio causing it to program. I am running an Icom IC-761 at 100 watts and an MFJ-2010 wire antenna. I plan on running a separate ground wire to the stove to start with but any other suggestions?

    Get another brand stove that is able to reject the licensed radio signals from your radio or don't use the radio while cooking.

    I would choke the power cable first, if possible. Wrap a few turns on a bead and see if that solves the issue.

    I'm not sure I would be comfortable playing games with how a combustion stove was electrically grounded.

    I would contact Samsung.

    It's an obvious safety hazard, they'll listen to that.

    I'd second that, let THEM sort it out

    Unless gas stoves are your forte, I agree with the previous posters wholeheartedly. Not worth the chance.

    OCFD, 40/20/10/6M, DIPOLE, 300W (coax fed).

    Well, OCFD's are prone to Common Mode current on the coax shield as well as creating RFI.

    Standard stuff....
    -Reduce power to level that doesn't cause problems
    -Change bands
    -Reorient antenna
    -Move ant. further away, elevate ant.
    -Add 1:1 Unun/Isolators at Feedpoint and at shack entrance.
    -Add a grounding point/surge suppressor at shack entrancej
    -Change antenna to a balanced design i.e. traditional center fed dipole.

    I missed the part about an OCFD, I'm not up on MFJ part numbers.

    So, yeah. I'm not saying it's the OCFD, but it's the OCFD.

    Did you ever resolve this problem with your oven? I am having the same issue with my relatively new Samsung Oven (Model #NX58H5600SS/AA). When I operate on 40m it will turn the oven on. I am not using a OCFD, but rather an elevated vertical with tuned radials on the roof. My plan is to use ferrite on the AC cord of the oven. I am concerned that a lack of internal shielding may be the cause and ferrite may not be the solution based on a write up by KF4G, although I was planning on a toroid FT240-43 rather than using clamp on chokes):

    I can't move my antenna and I have a 1:1 unun at the feedpoint and at the radio.

    Thanks for info you can share.
