Re: Dirty Transmitters
Not a problem here fortunately. My big issue is tracking down whoever is wearing the Wi-Fi TV ears that are smack dab on 50.125 and floats up and down the band. Whenever I find them I'll buy them a new set. Hi.. Maybe I can get closer with a directional antenna tied to my IFR hoping to solve it before 6 opens up again.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I ran these switchers (SS30) in my station when I had a substantial distance between my antennas and the shack. They were great. As others have said — small, light, good supplies.
But when I relocated to a less ham friendly environment, and every antenna I can put up is within maybe 30’ of where my station is — noisy. Not awful. But noisy. Toroids on AC/DC lines cleaned most of it up, but not all of it. I eventually “regressed” to a nice quiet linear supply. I got tired of trying to figure out whether the junk was coming from somewhere else or the supplies. Weight became a minor issue.
Everything comes with caveats … it all depends.
