Re: ICOM * 7000 * PSK

I struggled with RFI causing all sorts of weird computer behavior with my TenTec Eagle/Signalink USB/Raspberry Pi setup no end. Throwing ferrite chokes on things helped some but did not fix the problems. Rearranging the gear helped even more but did not fix the problem. Then one day I needed to shorten the antenna feedline and whacked about 10 feet of coax off and put a new PL-259 on the end. RFI problems vanished.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I can’t prove the problem was the PL-259 on the unshortened coax. But I suspect it had some problem. It was, in fact, one of the very first PL-259’s I ever put on, so it’s quite possible I did something stupid.
Unfortunately with this sort of thing the path to solving the problems always seems to involve exhausting every possibility one at a time, until you give up in disgust, only to change something randomly weeks later and observe the problem go away.
