07/13 15:29 I hope that is my problem.  I'll let you know.  Tnx	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
07/13 15:29 also rem that noise can be induced via powerlines into rig etc as well as antennas	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:27 that was generating noise from AM bands up through VHF !	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:27 My brother was having same issue and following those steps found a cheap ac/dc wall wart	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:26 RR,  I'll have to play with it to see what's going on.  Thanks for the info	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
07/13 15:26 Don, suggest you kill the main breakers in house and operate rig or SA off battery for a few minutes to see if noise is in house	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:24 very very frustrating !  99% of us use N5TM's PJC	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:24 same on my beams	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
07/13 15:24 by the time i type in my message it clears it for me	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:24 PJ itself and the PJ relief page system sucks	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:23 Don do you use Dan's PJC ?	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:22 oh wow.......-60 dBm is horrible	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:22 so without the LNA that level will be even lower	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:22 On my vertical, I'm only -60 from DC to light.	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
07/13 15:21 that is using 2x17 elem beams and a SSB LNA whose gain has NOT been accounted for	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:21 Wow	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
07/13 15:20 if I point into a quiet corn field here, using a BW of around 2 kHz, my absolute noise floor is around -130 dBm	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:19 Excellent.  Im using an HP8594E	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
07/13 15:18 it agrees within a dB of what I measure with my HP spectrum analyzer and calibrated sig gen	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:18 Please	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
07/13 15:17 but much much more sensitive	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:17 I can give you absolute levels I see here using my flex since it is a spectrum analyzer	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:16 The ambient noise level will depend on the BW of ur receiver and of course the background level of any RF the ant is picking up	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt
07/13 15:16 RR	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
07/13 15:16 QRX Don.......typing reply now (if this stupid thing will let me)	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt

07/13 15:13 sri, i dont use PJ anymore and it was not seeing me	(W8BYA Gedas IN EN70jt

07/13 15:13 I'm trying to determine if my local noise level is too bad.	(KE7NR/6/2/222 Don AZ DM33wm
